STAR WARS: THE ACOLYTE showrunner says she has a multiseason plan, even though the first season will tell a complete story

Disney+ released the amazing first trailer for their upcoming series this week Star Wars: The Acolyte. It sounds like it will tell a great, action-packed story, and if the showrunner Leslye Promontory has something to say about it, we’ll see the story continue after the first season. Even though the show is only slated for one season so far, we know there’s a chance it will continue if it’s well received and fans are hungry for more.

Headland spoke about his multi-season pitch for the series in a recent interview with Collider, he explained:

“I would say when I pitched it, I definitely pitched it as a multi-season show. There’s a lot of things at the end of this season that I think are narrative threads that are definitely not tied. However, I’m the kind of writer who I’m not interested in an emotional cliffhanger. I want you to feel like you had a particular kind of catharsis and emotional experience in watching those eight episodes because I like to reward the audience with that. I still think that means you can add things like: ” I want to see where this goes” and “Oh, I didn’t realize that person was related to that other person like that, and I’d like to see more.’ But there’s not something where you feel like you’re on the edge of your seat to have that catharsis, and then you have to wait two years. These things take forever to make, so I would hate to do a season that didn’t feel complete, even if it was still open for more stories.”

It’s smart to make a full first season. It will be strong this way and fans will be more likely to want to continue to see strong storytelling with these characters. As for how quickly season two could take shape, Headland explained:

“We could do it pretty quickly. We definitely have a timeline. I have a lot of ideas and, again, a lot of them are things I’ve said [Lucasfilm president] Kathleen [Kennedy] early on, in terms of where I would like the season to go and the conflicts that I see happening, particularly in season two. But I’ve been working nonstop on this for a long time, so I’ll definitely take a much-needed break before I start the writers’ room. And I would love to see how the show performs. I am very interested. I’m interested in seeing, like you said, the ratings and seeing what are the things that people… I don’t want to say it’s a reaction to fan reaction, but you get feedback at the end of the season, which is kind of nice to say simply: ‘Okay, those people hated it.’ That doesn’t mean we don’t do it, it just means we’re armed with the information that that was an unpopular thing. So we can do it anyway, but knowing these things, I think, is really good. I think he would like to start it immediately. They are very happy with the series. But I need a break.”

The series is the protagonist Amanda Steinberg as a former Padawan and dangerous warrior who is hunting and killing Jedi. She is joined by Squid game‘S Lee Jung JaeWho he also plays the Jedi Master Manny Giacinto, Jodie Turner-Smith, Rebecca Henderson, Charlie Barnett, Dean-Charles Chapman, Carrie-Anne Moss, Margherita Levieva, Joonas SuotamoAND Amy Tsang.

The story is described as “a mystery thriller that will take viewers into a galaxy of dark secrets and emerging dark side powers in the final days of the High Republic era.” The High Republic is set 100 years before the start of the Skywalker Saga.

In The Acolyte, “An investigation into a shocking crime wave pits a respected Jedi Master (Lee Jung-jae) against a dangerous warrior from his past (Stenberg). As new clues emerge, the boys travel down a dark path where sinister forces reveal that all is not what it seems…”

Star Wars: The Acolyte will premiere on Disney+ on June 4.
