Since the rise of the era of Star Wars television, fans of the space opera have had a lot of content to digest.

Unfortunately, the last overwhelmingly positive response was to the second season of The Mandalorian, which premiered in October 2020.

The rest of the content since then has had some pretty mixed receptions leaving Star Wars in a slump -- but Kenobi could be the cure.

Short-form content is probably the smartest thing Star Wars has done in a while. Beginning with The Mandalorian as its break into live-action television in 2019

Bad Batch, the spinoff of The Clone Wars, premiered in 2021, and long-time fans of the original series loved it.

The second season is likely to fix that for this show in particular, but it isn't coming for several months to a year, at least.

It's not that any of the above series fall under the category of bad television. But the second season of The Mandalorian was the last project that managed to unite the fans in near-universal praise.

That could be because the novelty of Star Wars in television form hadn't worn off yet, or it could just be that it had the perfect ratio of new beginnings and old faces.
