The recent Obi-Wan Kenobi series was been divisive among fans. Some argue that the show spends little time with the titular character the series is based on, focusing instead on new original characters. Complaints range from the writing being “all over the place” to established continuity being changed.
Not only were longtime fans seemingly turned off after only a handful of episodes, but also the critics seemed to be put off by the clunky writing. Multiple outlets, which in the past have defended Lucasfilm no matter what, have voiced criticisms against the show.
But despite all of this it appears that there are those at Lucasfilm hoping for some sort of continuation. Actor Ewan McGregor (Obi-Wan Kenobi) is seemingly interested in a second season to the six episode mini-series. McGregor recently sat down with British GQ and said:
“I really hope we do another season. If I could do one of these every now and again, I’d just be happy about it.“
Also not that long ago Hayden Christensen (Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader), shared his feelings about possibly doing a Darth Vader focused spin-off series:
“Obi-Wan Kenobi 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.“
In addition to all this rumors of a Reva spin-off series starring Moses Ingram have also been floating around. But with the massive amount of controversy and backlash from both fans and critics the continuation of the Obi-Wan series seems to be up in the air.
