Ewan McGregor appeared at Celebrity Fan Fest and discussed a potential Obi-Wan Kenobi season 2. The show was made and marketed as a limited series after a planned film or even trilogy fell through. However, Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy and series director Deborah Chow have also addressed the possibility of continuing the story. Check out McGregor’s remarks here:

“I’m totally up for it guys, I want to do it. I’m absolutely honest, there’s no plan to make one yet. But I think – I’m pretty sure they’re just biding their time. I think – but nobody’s approached me as of yet.”
While McGregor says Lucasfilm has yet to contact him about a potential second season, I find it hard to imagine them not making one. Despite being average at best and shoddy at worst, Obi-Wan Kenobi broke Disney+ records with its streaming hours each week. We all love The Mandalorian, but it has become patently obvious that Lucasfilm doesn’t intend to maintain that kind of quality for its Disney+ output. Even if you liked Obi-Wan, it seems ridiculous to consider continuing the show’s story. In the end, Obi-Wan had processed his grief and anger surrounding Anakin and connected with Qui-Gon. That’s the story this show chose to tell, and it’s over.
But what do you think? Bring on more Obi-Wan, or give it a rest? Let us know in the comments!
