Willow season two still happening says creator Jon Kasdan
Willow season two hasn’t been cancelled, according to the show’s creator, Jon Kasdan.
This news comes days after a previous report from Deadline claimed that the show wouldn’t be returning for a second outing.
Kasdan put out a statement on Twitter to set the record straight and update fans on the status of the production.
“A decision was made last week to release our main cast for other series opportunities that may arise for them in the coming year. With all the TV and movies in production around the world, it feels unfair to limit an actor’s availability without a clear sense of when you’re going to need them again. It’s further trivialised by the simple reality that the scripts we’ve been working on require just as many actors with whom no such contractual hold exists.”
He goes on to say that this is also due to the slowdown of streaming productions, and that filming won’t happen in the next 12 months.
“But here’s what’s equally true: with the enthusiastic and unwavering support of Lucasfilm, and Disney, we’ve developed and written what we hope is a brain-meltingly fun, richer, darker and better VOLUME II, which builds on the characters and story of our first eight chapters (The Wyrm survives!)”
This is only part of it, but the full statement adds additional context to the situation.
While viewers might have to wait a while for season two, they can be reassured that it is indeed scheduled to happen.
Fans will get to find out what the last scene of the last episode means after all. A post-credits tease also hinted at not only a season two, but a third season as well.
Willow will be with audiences for a lot longer yet.
