Star Wars seems like it has a stacked year for 2024. With multiple projects on the way, the small screen will have a hefty helping of Star Wars content. However, fans have already adopted 2 of the 5 projects as their favorite, making their preferences known on social media.
The tentative list of shows that might be released in the coming year includes the third season of The Bad Batch, The Acolyte, the second season of Andor, Jude Law starer Skeleton Crew and the second season of Tales of the Jedi. All these IPs have fans who are anticipating their release, but the most vocal seen to be excited for two of these projects in particular.
Fans seem to be particularly excited for The Bad Batch and Andor
Fans have taken to social media to talk about the shows that Star Wars might be releasing next year. This involves the final season of The Bad Batch and the second season of Andor, both of which take place after the prequels but before the Original Trilogy begins.
I can’t wait for The Bad Batch S3 and Andor S2.

While Skeleton Crew and the Acolyte are new projects, fans are anticipating the finale of the Clone Wars era of the IP with the final season of Bad Batch. The series has been long rumoured to tie into the rest of the Filoni-verse, adding another layer to the clone saga. As for Andor, the series received rave reviews as a spin-off of Rogue One, being able to get fans hyped for a Star Wars property with Jedi, Sith or the Force.
Skeleton Crew, The Acolyte and Tales of the Jedi are interesting too
Tales of the Jedi was the surprise hit from Star Wars, exploring the history of beloved prequel and Clone Wars characters like Qui Gon Jinn, Count Dooku and Ahsoka Tano. With a visual style similar to the Clone Wars series, the second season could bring forth more anthology-style stories to explore the histories of more characters, such as Emperor Palpatine, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Satine Kryze.
Skeleton Crew and Acolyte are two completely new properties that seem to have little to do with the Skywalker Saga. Skeleton Crew features Jude Law and will follow a band of children navigating their way back home. This series will be live-action. The Acolyte, on the other hand, is going to look at a time that has yet to be explored in the mainline Star Wars settings, in animation or live action. This show will take place during the High Republic, some 100 years prior to the beginning of Phantom Menace
