Nowadays, mini-series only remain mini-series if they are not too successful. With the new Star Wars hit Obi-Wan Kenobi there is a high risk of extension. Director Deborah Chow has now commented on this.

Lucasfilm boss Kathleen Kennedy was much more direct and encouraged the audience to provide the necessary arguments for an extension: “If we see a lot of engagement and people really want more from ‘Obi-Wan’ then we’ll certainly think about it because the fans are important to us.
