Will there be a new episode of Ahsoka tonight on Disney Plus? Is there going to be a follow-up season?
Normally, when a miniseries concludes, there’s some kind of resolution. The heroes win and the villains run with their tails between their legs. Not here. The eighth episode of Disney Plus‘ Ahsoka ends with more questions than anything else.
The most important is Grand Admiral Thrawn escaping. He may not have superhuman abilities, but he’s leading a massive army. Some of the Stormtroopers in his command are zombies. Ahsoka Tano, Sabine Wren, and Ezra Bridger found that out the hard way. With Thrawn back, the galaxy is in danger.
On a lighter note, the heroes did gain a couple of wins. Lady Tano and Wren are back together without any animosity between them. Plus, Wren becoming more attuned to the Force may lead her to restart her training. It would make sense. However, if she does, will Wren succumb to the Dark Side? Her emotions already caused her to make a few questionable decisions this season. Who knows was could happen if she becomes more powerful?
Lastly, Ezra is back home. The reunion with Hera Syndulla was short for viewers, but worth the wait. Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Hera) and Eman Esfandi (Ezra) did a fantastic job conveying joy. Fans may have wanted to see more, but it was still a great moment. Unfortunately, it will be a while before we see what happens next.
Is Ahsoka new tonight, October 10?
There will not be a new episode of Ahsoka tonight. The eighth episode aired last week and it was indeed billed as the season finale. When Disney Plus says this is the last episode of one of their miniseries, believe them.
The next Star Wars project is expected to be Star Wars: Skeleton Crew and it won’t be released until sometime in 2024. If Grand Admiral Thrawn’s return is as important as this writer thinks, he may return in Skeleton Crew. If he’s involved, Hera and Ezra will be as well. They’ll be leading the charge to take down Thrawn and the Empire. That being said, don’t expect to see Ahsoka or Sabine Wren. They’ll both be hanging back and creating their own plan to save the galaxy.
The question is: When could we see Ahsoka Tano again?
Has Ahsoka season 2 been renewed by Disney Plus?
Disney has yet to confirm if there will be a second season of Ahsoka. The show was originally promoted as a miniseries. However, this wouldn’t be the first show to start as a limited release and go beyond. After all, other Star Wars shows like The Mandalorian and Andor were renewed for more seasons. That being said, the continuation could depend on a lot of things.
Rosario Dawson would love for a second season to happen and revealed to Empire that she is “manifesting” it, so it sounds like it could be a possibility – especially as The Hollywood Reporter revealed that a second season would depend on the show’s success. But did season 1 do well enough to invest more money into the franchise?
Lastly, and maybe most importantly, does season 2 make sense? If the Ahsoka story doesn’t need to continue in the form of a second season, then doing so would be a mistake. Just because a show or movie is popular or profitable doesn’t mean more needs to be produced. Getting out before fans become dissatisfied is the right course of action. Breaking Bad, The Wire, and The Good Place are perfect examples.
Even if Ahsoka isn’t the main character, she’ll likely be seen again in some capacity. After all, there are stories of her past that weren’t told. With Ariana Greenblatt (Barbie, Avengers: Infinity War) playing a young Ahsoka Tano earlier this season, maybe she could do it again for an entire prequel series. It would be cool to see her grow into what she is today.
Or perhaps Dawson will reprise the role in another Star Wars project in the future – there is that Mandoverse movie directed by Dave Filoni coming up. We’ll have to wait and see what’s next for the franchise.
