Will Ahsoka get a second season after that finale? (spoilers)10/06/2023
This post contains spoilers for episode 8 of Ahsoka, “The Jedi, the Witch, and the Warlord.”
When we last talked about Ahsoka, it was the mid-season point, right before “Shadow Warrior” aired. I *loved* that episode. It was so jarring to see just how young Ahsoka was when she first fought as Anakin’s padawan during the Clone Wars. It’s one thing to watch a 14-year-old fighting in a galactic war in animation, but the live action really highlighted that she was still just a child. Ariana Greenblatt (Barbie, Avengers: Infinity War) did a spectacular job as young Ahoska and that shot of Christensen blinking back and forth between Anakin and Darth Vader gives me chills even thinking about it right now. And she became Ahsoka the White! “Shadow Warrior” was the best episode of the season. I’d love to hear what others think. How is everyone liking Eman Esfandi as Ezra and Lars Mikkelsen’s live-action Thrawn? Before I get to the season finale, here’s a tl;dr version of what happened in the finale. Witches and homecomings and zombie stormtroopers, oh my!
Apparently it’s spooky season in the “Star Wars” universe as well, with the season finale of “Ahsoka” going full zombie while opening a new corner of the franchise’s mythology.
After a slow start, the latest “Star Wars” show really started cooking midseason by sending its heroes to another galaxy: Former Jedi Ahsoka Tano (Rosario Dawson) rides a hyperspace whale to the distant planet Peridea where she met up with friend and apprentice Sabine Wren (Natasha Liu Bordizzo).
They found Sabine’s long-lost friend Ezra Bridger (Eman Esfandi) and tussled with Grand Admiral Thrawn (Lars Mikkelsen) ― a paunchy but steely officer who’s kind of the Empire’s Next Big Thing ― and his allies, a trio of cosmic witches called the Great Mothers.
In the end, “Ahsoka” veered a little close to “The Empire Strikes Back,” as the villains gained an important win and the good guys split up, with wars seemingly coming on two intergalactic fronts.

There was so much packed into the finale! I bawled when Chopper recognized Ezra and he said, “Hera, I’m home,” and loved the scene between Huyang and Ezra talking about Kanan while building the lightsaber. Thoughts on that final shot with Force Ghost Anakin? How do you feel about Morgan Elsbeth’s fate? She held the Blade of Talzin, received the Gift of Shadows, and just when she thought she’d made it, she was then tossed aside by Thrawn as just another pawn in his game. And zombie soldiers?! Are those coffins holding the bodies of the Witches of Dathomir? Overall, I really loved the arc with Dark Jedi Baylan Skoll and Shin. I’m dying to see what their paths are. I’m so sad that we won’t get more of Ray Stevenson (R.I.P.). He was fantastic. If the show gets a second season, they have to recast the character, right? There’s no way they leave his character on a mysterious quest to mountains carved as the Father, Son, and Daughter from the Mortis Trilogy and not continue that storyline especially since Abeloth is speculated to be a big bad in future Mandoverse shows. If you haven’t watched the “Clone Wars” episodes of the Mortis Trilogy (season 3, eps 15-17), I highly recommend them. I also love that we saw Morai (the creature that looks like an owl) again and that the Daughter’s head wasn’t on her stone body yet, as her essence was transferred to Ahosoka in “Clone Wars.” This all feels like a potential Season 2 could be heavier and I am here for it!
So will “Ahsoka” get a second season? Although it hasn’t been officially confirmed yet, there are reports that a second season is currently in development. I love these characters and I really want to see them all reunited to kick some butt across the galaxy, so I hope we get one. Dave Fionli is directing a movie that ties all of the Mandoverse shows together that’s currently scheduled for a December 2026 release. That’s plenty of time to release another season. What are your thoughts on the finale and the season overall?
