‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ Season 2: Ewan McGregor ‘Hopes We Do Another,’ but Crew More Hesitant

"If I could do one of these every now and again — I'd just be happy about it." "I really hope we do another," McGregor told British GQ before the finale aired.
There were no major cliffhangers, although Darth Vader still looms large. "Obi-Wan Kenobi" has completed its six-episode run on Disney+, which begs the question: will the "Star Wars" series return for Season 2? One person definitely eager for "Obi-Wan" Season 2 is the Jedi himself, Ewan McGregor. "Obi-Wan" was developed and billed as a limited series, but so was "Big Little Lies" and "The White Lotus." The series came to a conclusive end with young Leia being safely returned home, Reva overcoming the Dark Side and Obi-Wan back on Tatooine looking after Luke.
Lucasfilm president and "Obi-Wan" executive producer Kathleen Kennedy agreed with Chow, telling ET, “Well, frankly, we did set out to do that as a limited series. And if we feel like, ‘OK, there’s a real reason to do this; it's answering the why then,’ then we’ll do it. But I think if there's huge engagement and people really want more Obi-Wan, we’ll certainly give that consideration because the fans, they speak to us. But we’ll see.”
But I would love to continue with this character," Christensen told Radio Times. "Well, it was definitely conceived as a standalone story. "You know, I think there's certainly more there to explore and I would be so excited to get to do so…I would certainly be open to [returning for 'Obi-Wan' Season 2]."

Hayden Christensen, who reprised his role of Darth Vader in the series, is also game to keep playing the character, though he could do so either in an a second season of "Obi-Wan" or a different series.
All six episodes of "Obi-Wan Kenobi" are streaming on Disney+.
“I think, you know, if it was to go forward, it would only be if there was a real reason for another one,” Chow added.
SPOILER ALERT: Do not read if you have not watched the "Obi-Wan Kenobi" finale on Disney+.
It really is one big story with a beginning, middle and end. So, we weren’t thinking past that.” While the actors are all in on "Obi-Wan" Season 2, the show's creative team is acting a bit more hesitant. As series director Deborah Chow recently told Entertainment Tonight, “For this one, we really did conceive it to be a limited series.
