Obi-Wan Kenobi season 2 release date speculation, cast, plot, and news

The Obi-Wan Kenobi season 2 release date could bring Ewan McGregor back to Star Wars once again, and we've put together everything worth knowing.

Obi-Wan Kenobi season 2 release date

What is the Obi-Wan Kenobi season 2 release date? Finally, Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen are back among the stars of the galaxy far, far away. It was such a thrill to see Kenobi and Vader going lightsaber to lightsaber again, and after Ahsoka, one thing is clear. Give. Us. More. Anakin.

But with both men back in Star Wars and the sci-fi series over for now, will we get more? That’s not an easy question to answer. Obi-Wan Kenobi director Deborah Chow has been clear the TV series was conceived to be limited, and even the best Disney Plus shows have mostly stuck to their guns on that front.

There is (a new) hope, though. If nothing else, we could perform some Jedi Mind Tricks to change their mind. So, here’s everything we know about the Obi-Wan Kenobi season 2 release date. Where could the story go? Who’ll reappear? Rest easy, young Padawan. Now, cast your mind back to a long, long time ago…

Obi-Wan Kenobi season 2 release date speculation

The Obi-Wan Kenobi season 2 release date has not been confirmed as of June 2023, because a new season of the show hasn’t been greenlit yet.

Like many of the Star Wars series and Marvel series made by Disney, Obi-Wan Kenobi was conceived as a limited series, but Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen have both expressed interest in doing more after returning to their roles that originated in the prequel Star Wars movies.

McGregor got big cheers at Star Wars Celebration 2023 when he reflected on the experience and said “Hopefully, someone might think we should do some more”. Sounds like he’s up for it, even though the event went by without any formal season 2 announcement.

Similarly, Christensen as Darth Vader, the servant of Emperor Palpatine, seems up for being in the Star Wars cast for years to come.

All have made clear this was designed to be one-and-done as a project, but they have an appetite to come back if the audience does. We’ll see what the future holds for these Star Wars characters – watch this space.

Obi-Wan Kenobi season 2 plot speculation

There’s no plot synopsis, but since the first season was about Vader and Leia, we speculate we could see the Obi-Wan Kenobi season 2 plot move away from the Skywalkers.

Obi-Wan was moving around in secrecy for quite a few years before the events of A New Hope, and he could’ve gotten involved in all sorts of adventures that don’t involve Sith lords or Princess Leia while avoiding the attention of the Galactic Empire.

One possibility is essentially Yojimbo in space, where the Jedi Master finds a community in need of help due to organised crime, and steps in against his better judgment. This would also fit with the already prominent influence of Akira Kurosawa’s best movies in the Star Wars universe.

Obi-Wan Kenobi season 2 cast speculation

As of June 2023, there’s no official Obi-Wan Kenobi season 2 cast list, but Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen would be likely to return.

We wouldn’t bet against Christensen once again adorning Vader’s armour to rejoin the Obi-Wan Kenobi cast. Obi-Wan and Vader’s dynamic was a highlight of the science fiction movies in the Prequel Trilogy, and the same is true this time around.

The rest of the Obi-Wan Kenobi cast is in the air. We could see Moses Ingram back as Reva or Rupert Friend as Star Wars villain The Inquisitor. But that depends on the story being told. Ingram has been one of the breakout stars of the show, so we’d bet we haven’t seen the last of her, in any case.

Obi-Wan Kenobi cast list speculation:

  • Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi
  • Hayden Christensen as Darth Vader
  • Moses Ingram as Reva
  • Rupert Friend as The Inquisitor

Is there an Obi-Wan Kenobi season 2 trailer?

There is no Obi-Wan Kenobi season 2 trailer because season 2 has not been confirmed.

Where can you watch Obi-Wan Kenobi season 2?

Provided it goes ahead, you’ll be able to watch Obi-Wan Kenobi season 2 exclusively on Disney Plus. This is the same as the first season and all the other Star Wars series, like The Mandalorian and The Bad Batch.

Should it happen, expect Obi-Wan Kenobi season 2 to follow a weekly release schedule, likely of six episodes, too. But this is wishful thinking for the minute. Right now, you can find the first season of Obi-Wan Kenobi on Disney Plus.
