From within Disney, there are some serious rumors circulating concerning Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi and the show’s continuation. At the Star Wars Celebration, Ewan McGregor seemed to hint at a new season. The first ratings for the series were reportedly so positive that the producers decided to continue Kenobi’s narrative during the Empire’s darkest days. The program proved to be a dynamo for Disney+ by shattering streaming platform records. While a second season of the limited series may appear to be a done deal, there will be more storylines for Kenobi in the long term. There’s no word yet on whether the show will be promoted as a second season or something else. However, Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi has been updated to explore some of the remaining plot possibilities.

Aside from Obi-Wan, Leia, and Darth Vader’s undeniable survival, the show’s eventual conclusion won’t be revealed until the end of the month. The basic narrative here is about finding light in the dark, as Kenobi’s quest continues to put his trust in the Jedi to the test.  A possible second season might build on Ewan McGregor’s skills and the fascinating challenges of a character who is so consistently confident, though he should regain much of his swagger by the conclusion of the current run.

Kenobi is officially described as a limited series, and if it concludes with the titular star’s dealings with Vader before the meeting in A New Hope, the next venture may require a new name. If Obi-Wan stays on Tatooine this time around and focuses on Luke Skywalker, there’s the opportunity for a new sort of program, one with a larger scope than the current series.
