Obi-Wan Season 2? Ewan McGregor And Hayden Christensen Want To Come Back
Will the Obi-Wan series get a second season? We don't know yet, but its two stars are interested in coming back.
Disney's Star Wars TV show Obi-Wan Kenobi just aired its sixth and final episode. Fans are wondering if there will be a Season 2, and while that's yet to be confirmed, series stars Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen are up for reprising their roles.
McGregor, who plays Obi-Wan, told GQ, "I really hope we do another. If I could do one of these every now and again--I'd just be happy about it."
As for Christensen, who plays Darth Vader, he told Radio Times that he would be excited to play the villain again in a potential Obi-Wan Season 2 or something else.
"Well, it was definitely conceived as a standalone story. But I would love to continue with this character. You know, I think there's certainly more there to explore and I would be so excited to get to do so" he said. Should there be a Season 2, Christensen said he "would certainly be open to" joining the cast.
Indeed, Obi-Wan Kenobi was billed as a miniseries and Disney/Lucasfilm has given no indication as of yet regarding a sophomore season.
Also in the GQ interview, McGregor spoke about seeing Christensen as Vader in full costume for the first time. "I got a jolt of fear that made me six years old again," he said. "I've never experienced that before. I just about crapped my pants."
While fans wait for any word on a new season of Obi-Wan Kenobi, the next Star Wars TV series is Andor, which is a prequel to the movie Rogue One that arrives on Disney+ in August. A new season of The Mandalorian is also in the works for 2023.
