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 SFFGazette.com) 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+.
