    Obi-Wan Kenobi has ended... for now. A few days after Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen shared their enthusiasm about a possible return to their characters, Entertainment Tonight has posted an interview with series director Deborah Chow and Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy, where they both address the possibility of coming back for another season.



    Kennedy first started toying with the idea of another season in an interview that was published back in March 2022 by Entertainment Weekly. She said that they had so much fun on set, there had been discussions about doing another season. But if they were to do that, they would have to answer the question: Why? Speaking to ET, she basically repeated that sentiment, adding that it will also depend on if there's enough demand from the fans:

    Deborah Chow, who directed all six episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi, shared that point of view, though she was a bit more apprehensive about the idea of coming back. She said:



    For now, viewership numbers from the first few episodes support the idea of fans clamoring for more. We'll have to wait a couple of weeks to see if they held strong throughout the entire series, as the online discourse around the show has not been as positive as they probably hoped.



    Part VI probably ended on a perfect note in that there could be a reason to come back, but the story was also wrapped up, so it would be fine if they left it as an isolated, limited series. If you haven't read our review yet, you can check it out here. Our friends from The Resistance Broadcast also discussed it live tonight at 9 PM ET.

    There was no real reason to make the first series

    I'm good on more Kenobi.

    There were a few small things I didn't get with the series that could be explored in future seasons, but I ultimately feel like it was exactly what it needed to be, and where it ends sets things up very well for what is to come in the timeline. Adding onto that sorta lessens all that, at least in my opinion.

    The difference between these two scenes is pretty powerful.

    God, that's powerful.

    You know...the more I think about it the more I am just.so.mad that the ST never gave us a scene where Ben meets his grandfather's Force ghost. I'm sorry Rey fans...but the ST should have been about the real Skywalkers.

    There's an empowering message hidden in the story.

    The old saying is that one image is worth a thousand words.

    That said, the images that @cawatrooper posted in this thread tell you all you need to know about why this series had to happen. IMHO, this story enhances both ROTS that came before it and ANH that came after it.
