‘Willow’ creator Jon Kasdan remains optimistic about season 2, but not for at least a year
willow Creator Jon Kasdan expects to see a second season of the fantasy series, at least for now, following the news that the fantasy series is ending. Reassuring fans that season 2 is being written, and hopefully it will eventually air, it won’t air for at least the next 12 months.
“Last week the decision was made to release the main cast for other series opportunities that may occur next year,” he wrote, challenging deadlines and other online reports about the end of the series. He feels that as a final cancellation, “I’m pretty sure neither I nor the people at Lucasfilm really characterized it, or characterized it, if asked.” added.
As deadline noticethe series will not continue in its current form as the cast has been released, but Willow remains a key IP in the Lucasfilm library, so we may return in the future.
“With all the television and movies in the world being produced, it feels unfair to limit the availability of actors without a clear understanding of when they will be needed again.” The scripts we’ve been working on are further trivialized by the simple reality of requiring as many actors (from the first season) as no such contractual retention exists. Nothing prevented Annabelle Davis from appearing in another show, but it’s better to believe that Mims will appear in every Volume 2 chapter.
Citing an industry-wide slowdown in production of streaming shows, Kasdan said Willow “will not resume filming for the next 12 months.”
