Will There Be More Episodes of Ahsoka?
There is plenty to be excited about in Ahsoka's eight-episode run. And given that fans will be getting one-third of the entire series in one day, August 23 just became the biggest day of the summer for Star Wars fans.
A five-week run may seem short (especially after the gargantuan 12-episode Season 1 of Andor); however, Ahsoka feels a bit more like a mini-series akin to Obi-Wan Kenobi rather than the typical TV show.
This show is as much the beginning of something new as it is an epilogue for the beloved Star Wars Rebels.
Sure, characters and narrative threads will play into the future of the MandoVerse story which Ahsoka finds itself planted firmly in the middle of, but the series will likely feel like an extra chapter of an already existing story rather than the start of a new one.
There is a real chance these eight episodes are all fans get when it comes to Ahsoka.
Ahsoka debuts on August 23 on Disney+.
