Was it just me, or were six episodes not enough for Obi-Wan Kenobi?

I know that the timeline definitely limits what can happen here. It’s not like the Obi-Wan series can go on forever. But six episodes? C’mon, I need more Star Wars!

At the moment, there’s been no word on whether we will see a second season of Obi-Wan Kenobi. Agan, where it fits into the overall timeline does limit how much time they can spend on the series. However, I think there’s still room for another season!

Luckily, there are plenty of series coming down the pipeline. Between Disney’s Investor Day in 2020 and the Star Wars Celebration just a few months ago, Star Wars fans clearly have plenty to look forward to.

There are currently three Star Wars series coming to Disney+ through the end of this year, and plenty more to catch in 2023 – including the long-awaited season three of The Mandalorian. The super mysterious Star Wars: Skeleton Crew is also expected sometime in 2023.

Here is everything we know so far about the Star Wars content coming our way!

Andor

Premieres August 31, 2022

Andor will be the next Star Wars series that we’ll see on Disney+. Arriving in August of this year, it’s expected to have twelve episodes. It will follow the story of Cassian Andor, who was featured in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Diego Luna reprises his role as the rebel spy.

The TV series will serve as a prequel to Rogue One. While we already caught him in the midst of fighting against the Empire in the film, the series will center on the events beforehand. As the Rebel Alliance is forming in opposition to the Galactic Empire, Cassian Andor is a thief whose homeworld was destroyed. During the series, we’ll see what leads him to become the revolutionary we saw in Rogue One.

Star Wars: The Bad Batch Season 2

Premieres September 28, 2022

We’re going to see a second season of Star Wars: The Bad Batch later this year! The Bad Batch is, of course, Clone Force 99 – a group of defective clone troopers with genetic mutations who did not comply with Order 66. In the aftermath of the Clone Wars, they are now mercenaries and enemies of the Empire.

Dee Bradley Baker returns to voice Hunter, Tech, Wrecker Echo, Crosshair, and any other clones that come along. Aside from the Bad Batch themselves, we’ll see some returning franchise characters, such as Emperor Palpatine and Commander Cody. You can spot the Wookie Jedi youngling Gungi in the season two trailer as well.

They’ll all be back to continue their adventures in September. And with the clones being phased out by the end of the first season, expect to see the galaxy changing even more during season two.

Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi

Premieres Late 2022

Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi is an upcoming anthology series that will focus on different characters from the prequel trilogy era. Details about the animated series were first officially revealed by creator Dave Filoni in May 2022. It will consist of six episodes split into two paths.

One path (three episodes) will follow Ahsoka Tano across various points in her life. Anakin Skywalker will appear, too. The other will center on a young Count Dooku before his fall to the Dark Side when he was still a Jedi Knight. Liam Neeson will reprise his role as Qui-Gon Jinn, who was once Dooku’s Padawan.

So far, we don’t have a concrete date for this one yet, but supposedly it will premiere in late 2022.

The Mandalorian Season 3

Premieres February 2023

Mando is back! Everyone’s favorite bounty-hunter-turned-father-figure is finally coming back for a third season, after what seems like forever. Hey, at least we got to catch up with Din Djarin and Grogu for a hot minute during The Book of Boba Fett.

In any case, The Mandalorian’s third season will arrive on Disney+ in February 2023 – nearly three years after it was confirmed. A fourth season is also already in the works, too. Showrunner Jon Favreau confirmed this to CinemaBlend in May of this year.

Young Jedi Adventures

Premieres Spring 2023

Star Wars is venturing into the Disney Junior territory with Young Jedi Adventures. Preschool-age Padawans can get in on the fun now, too! Announced at Star Wars Celebration in May, it follows a group of younglings during the High Republic era. They will learn the ways of the Force, which include compassion, self-discipline, patience, and teamwork.

Obviously, the younglings will likely be all-new characters in the Star Wars universe. Don’t expect to see familiar faces from the films. The High Republic era is roughly 200 years before the Star Wars prequels begin. Yoda would be the only possibility since he was already over 800 years old during The Phantom Menace.

Ahsoka

Premieres Sometime in 2023

When Audiences first met Ahsoka Tano in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, she was the headstrong Padawan learner of Anakin Skywalker. She’s probably one of the most popular Star Wars characters who isn’t from the original trilogy.

So, raise your hand if you’re ready to see Ahsoka take the spotlight! After appearing on The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett, she was finally given her own show. Rosario Dawson returns as the Force-sensitive Togruta for this series. While we know that filming began in May 2022, we don’t have an exact release date to look forward to, yet. All we know is that it is scheduled for release in 2023.

Storylines have been kept under wraps, as usual with Star Wars series as of late. But we do know that Hayden Christensen will be back as Anakin Skywalker, and we should see multiple characters from Star Wars Rebels make appearances.

Star Wars: Skeleton Crew

Premieres Sometime in 2023

Pretty much every project from Lucasfilm is kept under wraps, but Star Wars: Skeleton Crew takes the cake for being the most mysterious of them all. I can’t give you a whole lot of details on this one. According to the announcement made during the Star Wars Celebration, the series will take place after Return of the Jedi, following the fall of the Empire. Jude Law has been cast, but even his character has been kept a secret.

Unsurprisingly, considering how much we don’t know about the series, we also don’t know when it will premiere. They are shooting for it to be released in 2023 at some point.

The Acolyte

Premieres ???

Okay, one more super-secret Star Wars project that’s been carefully kept a mystery. I’m going to tell you everything I know so far, but it’s not much. We know that The Acolyte takes place during the final days of the High Republic era. It’s a time period that hasn’t been explored on-screen before now, though it is the setting of several novels. Focusing on this time for new projects opens the doors to plenty of new characters.

Because this series is at the end of the High Republic days, maybe around a century before A Phantom Menace, it puts this series right when the Dark Side is emerging. Here’s to hoping it flips the usual script and tells the story from a Sith perspective!

Russian Doll co-creator Leslye Headland is the writer and showrunner for it, and Amandla Stenberg has been tapped to star in the show. Other than that, it’s anyone’s guess. We don’t even really know when it’s expected to premiere, other than maybe 2023?

Lando

Premieres ???

Lando is probably the one I’m looking forward to the most. Unfortunately, I have no idea what’s going on with it! Although the project was announced at the end of 2020, there haven’t been any other significant updates since. All we can do is cross our fingers that it’s still in development at this point.

We do know that the spin-off TV series is intended to focus on the younger version of Lando Calrissian. The character was originated by Billy Dee Williams in The Empire Strikes Back, but Donald Glover is expected to return as a younger Lando, reprising his role from Solo: A Star Wars Story

Unfortunately, Glover’s involvement is what has the project hanging in uncertainty. According to Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, Glover’s busy schedule has everyone “patiently waiting.” CinemaBlend spoke to Kennedy at Star Wars Celebration about the holdup:

“You need to ask Donald. He’s the one that holds all the cards here. But there’s no movement. I will say that honestly. But it’s not for lack of trying. It’s just that he’s a very busy guy. … He’s got another series, and I think one other thing, and then he’ll come our way. So, patiently waiting.”
