What is the Ahsoka season 2 release date? Ahsoka has now come to an end, with the eighth and final installment giving us a titanic confrontation between our ragtag group of heroes and the assembled forces of Imperial menace Grand Admiral Thrawn.
Star Wars fans were treated to plenty of lightsaber combat, one of the best Star Wars villains in full tactician mode, and some deeply emotional moments featuring the Ahsoka cast. It's thrilling enough to make you want to watch the Star Wars movies in order again, as well as going back through the animated Star Wars series to learn about everything you missed. What does Ahsoka's white owl mean? And what's Baylan Skoll standing on?
But have we seen the last of this branch of the Star Wars cast? We think there might be an Ahsoka season 2 release date coming down the pipeline after all, and there's even a line of dialog in the final episode that lays the table perfectly for the continued adventures of the best Star Wars characters from this Disney Plus series. There are, of course, spoilers ahead for the finale.
Ahsoka season 2 release date speculation
Ahsoka season 2 hasn’t been confirmed. However, there are reports Lucasfilm is discussing fast-tracking season 2 to come out before Dave Fioloni’s Star Wars movie, so 2025 is possible.
Among the crop of new Star Wars movies on the way, Filoni’s sounds like one of the most ambitious. He’s taking the New Republic era, which includes The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett as well as Ahsoka, and pulling it all together in a big-screen epic.
But we wouldn’t bet against a return to Ahsoka’s solo series, either. There are so many questions left to answer that we need more than a single movie to close this chapter. The Disney Plus numbers have been strong, so we think Filoni will get the chance to answer those questions. After all, we have a new Bokken Jedi to train.
There are reports swirling that Lucasfilm and Disney are reportedly discussing season 2 coming out before Filoni’s film. Deadline claimed that “fans have speculated that Dave Filoni’s standalone feature film, which will be a culmination of his Disney Plus/Lucasfilm universe of The Mandalorian, Book of Boba Fett, and Ahsoka, etc. centers around Thrawn, and that is poised to be next. However, we hear that Ahsoka Season 2 is more of a reality in the conversation, but nothing is locked yet.”
Who would be in the Ahsoka season 2 cast?
Should Ahsoka season 2 be greenlit, expect to see Rosario Dawson back leading the cast alongside Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Natasha Liu Bordizzo, David Tennant, and more.
The Ahsoka cast is one of the strong points of the series, and we imagine the season 1 survivors would all return, resulting in a Rebels-esque continuation of the story.
We have Ezra back, and considering how season 1 ended, he will surely now be a regular instead of a supporting character. As for new faces (well, sort of new), we want Bo-Katan to show up at some point — she knows Ahsoka and it would be interesting to see Sabine interact with a Mandalorian.
Potential Ahsoka season 2 cast:
- Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka Tano
- Natasha Liu Bordizzo as Sabine Wren
- Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Hera Syndulla
- Ivanna Sakhno as Shin Hati
- Lars Mikkelsen as Grand Admiral Thrawn
- David Tennant as Huyang
- Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker
- Eman Esfandi as Ezra Bridger
- Wes Chatham as Captain Enoch
- Genevieve O’Reilly as Mon Mothma
What is Ahsoka season 2 about?
While the ongoing story of the returning Thrawn and the New Republic could be handled in Filoni’s upcoming movie, the continued adventures of Ahsoka and Sabine in their exile on Peridea could be the focus of Ahsoka season 2.
In the Ahsoka ending, we see Ahsoka Tano and Sabine Wren left behind on Peridea while Ezra Bridger returns home. Ahsoka reassures Sabine that “Ezra is where he needs to be, and so are we.”
This simple exchange between our two protagonists makes it clear that there’s a lot more to come from this story. Ahsoka believes that there’s a reason for them to be on Peridea, and we’d expect that it relates to Sabine’s training as a Jedi.
We’ve seen Sabine’s powers grow throughout the Ahsoka series, culminating in her using the Force to recall her lightsaber in the finale, as well as being able to push Ezra onto Thrawn‘s ship using abilities she didn’t previously appear to possess.
Filoni is fiddling with the notion of what force sensitivity means and who can become a Jedi. That’s a fascinating story thread to pull at in the future, and it provides a real hook for Ahsoka season 2. It’s arguably the kind of direction that the first season lacked, as much as we enjoyed ourselves watching it.
Is there an Ahsoka season 2 trailer?
Ahsoka season 2 hasn’t been ordered by Disney yet, but if it is, we imagine we’d be waiting until late 2024 at the minimum for a first trailer.
Given the strikes in 2023 that have halted progress for deals being made with actors and writers, don’t expect any new Ahsoka in 2024. A trailer or some teaser footage could be a possibility, but in that case, we still think it would be released in 2025.
Where can I watch Ahsoka season 2?
If we get a second season of Ahsoka, and we hope we do, it’ll stream exclusively on Disney Plus.
Sometimes shows get the switcharoo between services, but don’t expect to see a Star Wars show being gifted to any competitors. Keep those Disney Plus subscriptions handy.
How many episodes will be in Ahsoka season 2?
Ahoksa season 2 would likely have six episodes, as this is what live-action Star Wars series tend to have.
We’re getting a little frustrated with this structure, which extends to the Star Wars series also, and wish it would change to eight. But, shockingly, we’re not in charge.

Elsewhere, there are new movies and some more of the best TV series to look forward to, so here’s what we know about the Andor season 2 release date and The Mandalorian season 4 release date. Alternatively, head on over to the MCU for more on The Marvels, as well as everything new on Disney Plus.
