STAR WARS: Deleted Social Media Post May Have Confirmed Lucasfilm's Plans For AHSOKA Season 2 STAR WARS: Deleted Social Media Post May Have Confirmed Lucasfilm's Plans For AHSOKA Season 2

Prior to last night's Ahsoka finale, Lucasfilm sent out some social media posts which have left fans convinced news of a second season is imminent. You can find more details about that after the jump...

Yesterday evening, the finale of Ahsoka premiered on Disney+. The question now is, was it a season or series finale? Lucasfilm has yet to announce plans for additional episodes and we continue to hear conflicting reports about whether we'll get Ahsoka season 2 before Dave Filoni's planned Star Wars movie. 

No clip was released for this latest instalment but the show's various social media accounts did share a video earlier recapping the events of the penultimate chapter.

As io9 (via has pointed out, though, it was originally accompanied by text which read, "get ready for the series finale of @AhsokaOfficial tonight." The site later reached out to Lucasfilm for comment and, while they refused to say anything, the posts have since been updated or replaced to read "season finale."

So, what's happening? It could be a simple mistake and, if so, that suggests it was a season rather than a series finale. Alternatively, Lucasfilm may have felt that announcing it as a series finale (meaning there will be no season 2) would risk spoiling how the story ended.

Unfortunately, last night's finale didn't end with any sort of season 2 announcement similar to when The Mandalorian season 2 teed up The Book of Boba Fett. It did, however, make it clear that there's still lots of stories left to tell before Filoni's movie heads our way.

Stay tuned for updates as we have them. 

Set after the fall of the Empire, Ahsoka follows the former Jedi Knight Ahsoka Tano as she investigates an emerging threat to a vulnerable galaxy. 

In addition to Rosario Dawson in the title role, the series stars Natasha Liu Bordizzo as Sabine Wren, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Hera Syndulla, the late Ray Stevenson as Baylan Skoll, Ivanna Sakhno as Shin Hati, Diana Lee Inosanto as Morgan Elsbeth, David Tennant as Huyang, Lars Mikkelsen as Grand Admiral Thrawn, and Eman Esfandi appearing as Ezra Bridger. 

Ahsoka was written by Dave Filoni, who executive produces alongside Jon Favreau, Kathleen Kennedy, Colin Wilson, and Carrie Beck. Directors include Filoni, Steph Green, Peter Ramsey, Jennifer Getzinger, Geeta Vasant Patel, and Rick Famuyiwa. 

Seven of eight episodes of Ahsoka are now streaming on Disney+.

Was a great season from start to finish

I think it had something to do with the writers strike and viewership, apparently it got approved for season 2, but now it’s the SAG strike. Hopefully this gets resolved soon.
FireandBlood - 10/4/2023, 11:50 AM
It was a bittersweet ending that simultaneously wrapped up Ahsoka’s arc while opening the door to a whole new beginning for the franchise. They effectively just rebooted Star Wars without erasing a thing.

@LucasFilm -

Damn good finale. And that final shot.
FireandBlood - 10/4/2023, 11:53 AM
@GhostDog -

bkmeijer1 - 10/4/2023, 4:57 PM
@GhostDog - I'm so glad to see Hayden show up in Star Wars stuff again. Wish he appeared in the sequels, but I guess both the New Jedi Order and Heir to the Empire movies can make up for it
TheVandalore - 10/4/2023, 11:56 AM
I found the finale to be very enjoyable yet almost entirely disappointing. Actually, that's how I'd describe the entire show. I enjoyed it... but it didn't really do anything substantial enough for me. I don't get why a lot of these shows seem to hold back the goods. Like... just do the coolest things... this didn't feel like the coolest things.
bkmeijer1 - 10/4/2023, 12:00 PM
@TheVandalore - I'm not caught up yet, but so far the show for me isn't necessarily dissappointing. It all just kinda goes the way I expect it to go without doing anything surprising.
Usernametaken - 10/4/2023, 2:06 PM
@TheVandalore - 8 épisodes and we have the story equivalent of the first act of a movie...
It's slow, the dialogues are 75% useless and delivered slowly.

Dave filoni wrote this like it's a children's tv show.

I'm not interested by anything this dude will make after this.

@Usernametaken -

In traditional Star Wars format this season would be the first film in a trilogy.

WarMonkey - 10/5/2023, 6:40 AM
@Usernametaken - I was real excited and hopeful for this show but I feel the same as you now. There was no story except for Sabine's in the entire season and I ended up hating her character. Loved her in Rebels. Remove Sabine's stupid-ass Jedi story and this could have been 1 or 2 episodes. I have less than zero faith in Filoni now and am convinced he's been stealing credit for others work all these years.
theprophet - 10/4/2023, 11:57 AM
Give filoni the keys....[frick] kennedy
ClintThaHamster - 10/4/2023, 12:02 PM
@theprophet - Kennedy was an Executive Producer on Ahsoka.
kg8817 - 10/4/2023, 4:52 PM
@ClintThaHamster - Stan Lee was an Executive Producer on The Avengers, Infinity War, Endgame, and dozens of others.

It’s a superficial title and holds no authoritative merit.
theprophet - 10/4/2023, 4:53 PM
@ClintThaHamster - Avi Arad was execitive producer in alot of spiderman films including Across the Spider verse, that title doesnt really mean anything....the show was written by Filoni.
ClintThaHamster - 10/4/2023, 5:01 PM
@theprophet @kg8817 - But that's the title she has on every Star Wars show and movie. She has zero writing or directing credits. So, if her title on the show you liked "doesnt really mean anything" and "holds no authoritative merit," wouldn't that be true of her having the identical title on the shows you don't like?
ReverseFlasher - 10/4/2023, 11:58 AM
Whats with the comments these days… everytime i write a long comment it says successfully posted then is not, effectively wasting like 5-10 mins of my time.

Just wrote a long review of the last two episodes only for it to be wiped from existence, awesome thanks for wasting my time and energy.
bkmeijer1 - 10/4/2023, 12:00 PM
@ReverseFlasher - sometimes when I return to the article, my previously unseen comment is suddenly visible. Think it has to do with servers and loading times or something
ReverseFlasher - 10/4/2023, 12:19 PM
@bkmeijer1 - huh havent ever noticed mine reappear later, but will def check it out this time, thanks.

And thanks for not making some sarcastic comment, fully expected that after hitting submit lol
bkmeijer1 - 10/4/2023, 2:25 PM
@ReverseFlasher - it's not always the case it reappears though, so don't take me up on it 100%.

As for the comment, even now that you mention it, I can't even think of a sarcastic one to make.
WarMonkey - 10/5/2023, 6:48 AM
@ReverseFlasher - This has happened to me a few times. I now am in the habit of copying text before I hit the Submit button to be safe.
bkmeijer1 - 10/4/2023, 11:59 AM
Really cool and all, but why is there a link to a sister site with a pretty big spoiler in the title on an non-spoiler article on this site?
ClintThaHamster - 10/4/2023, 12:06 PM
@bkmeijer1 - Are you talking about "Who Is Abeloth? Season Finale Seemingly Introduces The Star Wars Franchise's New Big Bad - SPOILERS." Because . . . SPOILER ALERT . . . no, it doesn't.
bkmeijer1 - 10/4/2023, 3:52 PM
@ClintThaHamster - I was, but now that I have watched the finally I also know isn't a spoiler.

I went and read the article though, and even it's a theory that is pretty far-reaching, it's not the weirdest one I read. Don't think it's gonna be relevant though
knomad - 10/4/2023, 12:25 PM
In the UK, "seasons" are called "series." Don't read too much into this. I'm sure Ahsoka has been another SW cash cow.
BlackStar25 - 10/4/2023, 12:36 PM
Thought Ahsoka was good....just incredibly safe and predictable. Either way...I liked what they setup in the end.
bkmeijer1 - 10/4/2023, 4:59 PM
@BlackStar25 - safe is definitely the right word to describe it. It never really did anything truly surprising. Kinda just how you'd expect it go
Cap1 - 10/4/2023, 1:01 PM
Bar episode 6, yet another pitiful Star Wars Disney show. Visually flatter than a ruler, Filoni has reduced all the characters to smouldering and the rare smile which left barely an ounce of depth or hint of emoting between them, painfully wooden and stilted dialogue, horrifically staged dramatic/emotional beats, horrifically staged show in general, no sense of urgency or stakes, wafer thin characters, doesn't help that Ahsoka is about the most boring character in the entirety of Star Wars thanks to Filoni's direction of Rosario Dawson which has to be 'smoulder a lot, smirk knowingly sometimes, act like you found out your line just before the camera started rolling, do very little else.' Wholly soulless, dull, cringe inducing stuff. Genuinely gobsmacked by the praise. Better than Mando S3, but so is being kicked in the balls. Keep Filoni on as an ideas guy sure, keep him well welllllll away from all filmmaking aspects, please, unless you want some dude who it looks like found out what a camera was yesterday
Cap1 - 10/4/2023, 1:07 PM
lmao thats a shit ton more on my phone. Sorry for a poorly written war and peace folks
DavidMullich - 10/4/2023, 1:10 PM
@Cap1 - I agree. Episode 6 was the only one I really liked and I'm puzzled by all the praise for the show. Filoni does have some good ideas -- certainly better than J.J. Abrams -- but the characters either have bland personalities or they just don't do or say anything interesting. The only exceptions are Baylon Skoll and Huyang. The pacing of the show is off too. There are some exciting moments, but also periods of overly long dialogue pauses or characters not doing anything interesting.
Cap1 - 10/4/2023, 1:43 PM
@DavidMullich - aw man the incessant dramatic pauses in the dialogue made me wanna pull my hair out. Real shame about Ray Stevenson cos as you say, he was one of the very few high points. Pacing was abysmal, didn’t know if it was coming or going. Purely on a visuals standpoint it was just so grey and ugly, Filoni’s obsession with the volume is gonna be his doom. Dreading his film (if he ends up making it)
AnthonyVonGeek - 10/4/2023, 1:41 PM
Magical Samurai sword, zombies and locations that looked like they were stolen from Lord Of The Rings. Didn’t hate it but was definitely disappointed with it.
Plus how did Ahsoka get both lightsabers back right after the big fight? One minute one saber is cut in half and on the ground of the temple that was being destroyed and the next scene shes shows up to the turtle people with both sabers are hanging from her belt? 🤷‍♂️🤣
FireandBlood - 10/4/2023, 1:51 PM
@AnthonyVonGeek - She literally has a lightsaber bench in her ship, which earlier on the episode they literally showed when Ezra built a lightsaber on the fly within minutes. Stands the reason she did the same between scenes.
AnthonyVonGeek - 10/4/2023, 2:37 PM
@FireandBlood - so right after the fight her most important thing to do was take time to go build another saber instead of seeing what all happened?
FireandBlood - 10/4/2023, 2:40 PM
@AnthonyVonGeek - Right after the fight, she went after Thrawn, failed to stop him, then we saw her with her lightsaber because between her failing to stop Thrawn and the closing shots, there was nothing else she could do.
WarMonkey - 10/5/2023, 6:55 AM
@AnthonyVonGeek - I thought sabers were difficult to build and only force users could do it. In the new Disney canon it's a Lego set to put together in minutes apparently like in the Disney parks. Plus the most rare resource, Kyber Crystals, are abundant on her ship I guess.
McMurdo - 10/4/2023, 3:05 PM
Ezra is a caricature. Thrawn a caricature. An incompetent Gideon 2.0. No emotional fallout for Sabine screwing the GFFA for Ezra...he doesn't care at all because he's a caricature. Filoni is writing shallow animation get to the next scene moments and it makes Rebels and Clone Wars feel DEEP. this finale SUCKED. episode 6 was great and then two hours of shallow happenings where contrivance after contrivance helps push the runtime to its end. What a let down.
HeavyMetal4Life - 10/4/2023, 3:17 PM
Really good finale. The fights were great, Night Troopers and zombies awesome, etc.
But we need season 2 confirmed asap, cause that is exactly what this story and lore needs before we move onto the Heir to the Empire movie. The Shin Hati and Baylan threads in particular kind of took a back seat the last few episodes, and those need to be further fleshed. Especially the stuff that is apparently teasing Abeloth, that's a major thread.
bkmeijer1 - 10/4/2023, 5:09 PM
@HeavyMetal4Life - we're definitely getting another season before Filoni's movie I think. For both The Mandalorian and Ahsoka, as there is ample time before 2026 (the earliest we'll see a theatrical Star Wars movie) to do so.

Also, zombie stormtroopers are pretty cool. Think I finally found my reason to start listening to the Death Troopers audio book on Spotify.
bkmeijer1 - 10/4/2023, 5:03 PM
I quite enjoyed the show, but I really dislike it when shows leaves stuff so open-ended (which pretty much every show annoyingly does nowadays). This isn't just leaving a few loose threads you can fill in yourself, it's a full-on sequel tease. So there better be a season two.
