‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ Streaming Numbers Sparks Rumors of a Second Season

Three episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi have debuted so far, and with record-breaking streaming numbers, some may think a second season could be on the way. According to a reliable Star Wars site, it is being considered.

According to Making Star Wars, the numbers for Obi-Wan Kenobi have been quite promising, and there are more stories to be told with the titular character. The site goes on to say their sources have confirmed a second season of sorts is in fact on the way, “I do not know if it will be sold as the second season or something else.” It should be noted that despite this site’s reliability, this is a rumor and has yet to be confirmed by the studio.

Last week, it was revealed Obi-Wan Kenobi had the largest global debut for a Disney+ original series to date, based on hours streamed. The fan chatter has been through the roof on the series. It currently has a “Fresh” rating amongst critics (87%) and audiences (60%) on Rotten Tomatoes.

The series begins 10 years after the dramatic events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith where Obi-Wan Kenobi faced his greatest defeat—the downfall and corruption of his best friend and Jedi apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, who turned to the dark side as evil Sith Lord Darth Vader. 

Obi-Wan Kenobi stars Ewan McGregor, reprising his role as the iconic Jedi Master, and also marks the return of Hayden Christensen in the role of Darth Vader. Joining the cast are Moses Ingram, Joel Edgerton, Bonnie Piesse, Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Sung Kang, Simone Kessell and Benny Safdie.  “Obi-Wan Kenobi” is directed by Deborah Chow and executive-produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Michelle Rejwan, Deborah Chow, Ewan McGregor and Joby Harold.

The first to episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi are now streaming on Disney+. Following the premiere, the series will stream weekly on Wednesdays, until the finale on Wednesday, June 22. You can check back each week at The DisInsider for a review of every new episode as they drop.
