The Mandalorian To Obi-Wan, Every Star Wars TV Show Confirmed So Far

With last year’s The Rise Of Skywalker concluding the Skywalker Saga chapter of the Star Wars universe, it is now time to look ahead to the future of the franchise.

Although several movies are already in the pipeline, following the launch of new streaming service Disney+ and the success of hit show The Mandalorian, Star Wars is increasingly looking to branch out into television.

Finding a home on Disney+, the world of Star Wars television shows will be vastly expanding over the next few years, with returning characters prominently featuring on the line-up.

Here is every Star Wars show confirmed so far.

The Mandalorian Season 2 (And 3)

The Mandalorian

Disney+

Following a hugely successful first series, it was to no one’s surprise that The Mandalorian was renewed for two more seasons with the second starting this year on 30th October.

Whilst we are still awaiting a trailer for season two, we know to expect more of The Child, a.k.a. Baby Yoda, being adorable, and everyone’s favourite bounty hunter, The Mandalorian himself, being mysterious.

Dave Filoni, Carl Weathers, Peyton Reed and Robert Rodriguez have directed instalments of the coming series, and it has been reported that we can expect Rosario Dawson to join the cast as a live-action Ahsoka Tano.

And much to the delight of fans, Boba Fett is making his return to Star Wars in the second season too!

The Bad Batch

Disney+

Earlier this year Lucasfilm announced that a Clone Wars animated spin-off series titled The Bad Batch will land on streaming service Disney+ next year, which will follow the rag-tag gang of defective clones.

As we learnt in Clone Wars, this group of soldiers all have unique powers and psychological issues, with the new show joining them on their journey after Order 66 is announced.

The show is headed up by Star Wars veteran Dave Filoni, with Brad Rau (Star Wars Rebels) serving as supervising director and Jennifer Corbett (Star Wars Resistance) as head writer.

Cassian Andor Rogue One Spin-Off

Lucasfilm

After making an impact in Rogue One, Diego Luna will return as alliance intelligence officer Cassian Andor in his own spin-off series for Disney+.

Described as a ‘spy thriller’, the show is a prequel to the hit movie and is set ‘during the formative years of the Rebellion’ with Cassian setting out to ‘restore hope to a galaxy in the grip of a ruthless Empire’.

And we are happy to report Alan Tudyk will be back as his hilarious sidekick droid K-2S0!

Originally meant to go into production last year, shooting got delayed to this year, but with the pandemic it is currently unknown when work on the series will be begin.

Ewan McGregor Obi-Wan Series

Lucasfilm

Oh, hello there! That’s right, the beloved Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi is indeed getting his own Disney+ series with actor Ewan McGregor stepping back into the role.

Aside from a brief voice cameo in The Force Awakens, McGregor hasn’t played Obi-Wan since 2005’s Revenge Of The Sith but appearing at Disney’s D23 event last year, he confirmed he is excited to be returning.

Following Obi-Wan on his adventures between Revenge Of The Sith and A New Hope, Deborah Chow, who has worked on The Mandalorian, has signed on to direct whilst the script has recently gone through rewrites.

Untitled Leslye Headland Series

Lucasfilm

The masterminds over at Lucasfilm have confirmed that a ‘female-centric’ brand new Star Wars show is in development which will hit Disney+ in the coming years.

Although all plot details are currently under wraps, we do know that Russian Doll showrunner Leslye Headland will helm the project, also acting as writer and executive producer.

There are currently rumours that popular Clone Wars character Ahsoka Tano will be getting her own spin-off with this project being it, but in Variety’s report about the Headland series it claimed the show takes place ‘in a different part of the Star Wars timeline than other projects’, meaning it probably won’t feature Tano, but instead a new character.
