·4 min read

Fans may not be getting any new “Star Wars” movies in the near future, but that’s just because the future of the galaxy — at least for now — is in television. And there are a lot of shows coming to the universe.

“Obi-Wan Kenobi” marks the newest series in the franchise, which concluded on June 22. The show takes place 10 years after the events of the prequel trilogy, and according to director Deborah Chow, tells a close-ended story. So, it seems that “Star Wars” will finally be moving beyond the Skywalker saga.

But what exactly is in that beyond? Let’s run it down. Below, you’ll find all the information we have about the upcoming slate of “Star Wars” TV shows, from “Andor” to “Ahsoka” We’ve got release dates, episode counts and all the names you’ll become familiar with.

Andor” follows Diego Luna’s Cassian Andor five years before the events of 2016’s “Rogue One,” and has been described as “spy thriller.” According to showrunner and writer Tony Gilroy, the series will introduce fans to who Cassian was before he joined the rebel cause.

The series will launch with 12 episodes in total, and a second season has already been ordered, consisting of 12 more episodes. Season 2 is set to begin filming in November, and its episodes will lead up directly to the events of “Rogue One.”

Back in 2020, Lucasfilm announced that a series centered on Lando Calrissian would be among the slew of series joining the universe, with the space playboy once again portrayed by Donald Glover, who brought him to life in “Solo: A Star Wars Story.”

Since then, there has been no movement on the series. But, according to Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, it’s still in the works. In a recent interview with CinemaBlend, Kennedy said that Glover himself is currently the hold-up on the new series.

“It’s not for lack of trying. It’s just that he’s a very busy guy,” she said. “He’s got another series, and I think one other thing, and then he’ll come our way. So patiently waiting.”
