Obi-Wan Kenobi: Will there be a second season? The writer and director of the show answer the question

The final episode of the first season of Obi-Wan Kenobi premieres soon on Disney+ and some people are wondering if it will be the last we see of the character in the Star Wars universe.

When the series was announced, and even in the last few months, all fans believed that Obi-Wan Kenobi would be a single, self-contained tale in which the Jedi Master’s story was fully told during his exile on Tatooine.

However, the season has turned out to be a jumble of adventures and exciting moments that, with one episode to go, doesn’t feel like it’s going to end.

This has left many fans of the galactic universe wondering whether a second season of the story is in the offing for Disney Lucasfilm.

This question has been answered by two of the most important people in the series, Joby Harold, screenwriter, and Deborah Chow, director of the project.

Joby Harold on the continuity of Obi-Wan Kenobi

This is what Harold told Collider about the second part of the series starring Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen:

“I get asked about it all the time. I’ve been thinking about this for so long as a closed story that my mind is so focused on this as a sort of limited series.” he explained to Collider.

“I haven’t thought beyond that.

“But it’s a great character. They’re all amazing characters.”

The cryptic response from the series’ director

For her part, Deborah Chow leaves the door a little more open than her colleague:

“There are more stories you could tell. Obviously, there’s another 10 years before we get to A New Hope and with a character like Obi-Wan Kenobi, I think even watching him ride through the sand sometimes is interesting,” she admitted.
