'Obi-Wan Kenobi': Season 2 of the hit Disney+ series rumored to be in development
Murmurs of 'Obi-Wan Kenobi' Season 2 are doing the rounds even as the hit Disney+ show reached its midway stage with episode 3. After the two-episode premiere broke viewership records on the streaming platform, the demand for more has already been on the rise, with fans eagerly hoping for a sequel. Reports also suggest that the conversations for another installment are happening internally at Lucasfilm and Disney.
The Ewan McGregor-starrer sees his character Obi, now a rather washed-out version of his previous self set out to rescue little Leia Organa from the Imperial. He ends up crossing paths with Reva/The Third Sister, an Inquisitor who works closely with Hayden Christensen's Darth Vader, including the ultimate evil himself. The showdown ends badly for Obi as Vader quickly overpowers him.

The site MakingStarWars reported that a second season of the show was already in development and the news comes after McGregor shared his willingness to reprise and play the character. The site also added that sources at Disney are pretty confident that there are more projects in line and some tweaks have been reportedly made to allow for a continuation of the storyline.
The second season might possibly explore the idea of Obi training Luke Skywalker. This would mark the third time that Luke would appear in the spin-offs after his cameos in 'The Mandalorian' and 'The Book of Boba Fett' where he was shown to be training Grogu. There's also that possibility of Ahsoka Tano making in that all-important cameo as well. For the time being, 'Obi-Wan Kenobi' is listed as a six-episode limited series, but with the resounding success despite what some of the critic reviews suggest, there is always that door open for a new installment.
New episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi stream every Wednesday on Disney+.
