The first season of Ahsoka ended on a cliffhanger. Ezra Bridger returned to the known galaxy after hitching a ride on Grand Admiral Thrawn’s ship. He reunited with Hera Syndulla while Thrawn and the Great Mothers traveled to Dathomir. However, Sabine and Ahsoka stayed behind on Peridea with no obvious way to leave the far-flung planet and return home. Then there were the matters of Baylan Skoll exploring a mysterious connection to Mortis and Shin Hati searching for her own path among Peridea’s roving bandits. All that to say, a lot is up in the air. Happily, Dave Filoni is officially developing Ahsoka season two.

Lucasfilm shared this news in tandem with an announcement about a new upcoming Star Wars movie. The studio is making The Mandalorian & Grogu, a feature film going into production this year. Filoni will serve as executive producer on the movie, which Jon Favreau will direct. The company stated that The Mandalorian & Grogu will lead Lucasfilm’s ongoing feature-development slate. That includes the announced films with Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, James Mangold, and Dave Filoni at the helm. Lucasfilm said Filoni “is also currently developing Ahsoka Season 2.”

Ahsoka season two will presumably pick up where the story left off. Thrawn must have some interesting plans in mind with the Great Mothers. He has an army of zombie stormtroopers at his disposal! But perhaps most importantly, the Imperial Remnant is in chaos. They need a strategic mind like Thrawn’s to re-establish control over the galaxy.

The New Republic is also kind of in chaos. Season one of Ahsoka made it clear that bureaucracy is already weighing the burgeoning government down. It doesn’t seem like the new ruling force took the right lessons from pre-Galactic Empire times. While Hera and Ezra try to build a stronger New Republic, Sabine and Ahsoka have a lot to figure out. But hey, they have Huyang on their side, and that sassy droid is always willing to help.

Regardless of what happens, we look forward to seeing all our friends from Star Wars Rebels continue to thrive.
