It’s been a big week for Star Wars, especially on Disney+, with the series finale of Star Wars: The Clone Wars racing to an epic finish, and even news of a third season of The Mandalorian already in pre-production. Now, Variety has broken more news from the Star Wars universe, with a new, unnamed, “female-centric” series coming to the streaming service.
The new series will be headed by Leslye Headland, the co-creator, showrunner, and executive producer of the critically-acclaimed Netflix series “Russian Doll.”
No exact details on the plot are known yet, but according to Variety, sources say it will be a female-centric series that takes place in a different part of the Star Wars timeline than other projects. Headland is said to be attached to write and serve as showrunner on the series, with the show currently staffing. (Many fans, including myself, are antsy at the thought of this potentially being the rumored Doctor Aphra project or an Ahsoka stand-alone series, but considering that this takes place “in a different part of the Star Wars timeline”, I’m more inclined to say it could be the former.)
Disney+ is proving to be the ultimate home for new Star Wars content, with two other series already in the works, including an Obi-Wan Kenobi series starring Ewan McGregor and a Cassian Andor (Rogue One) prequel series starring Diego Luna, and we can’t wait to see what comes next.
