The show has enlisted John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum executive producer Joby Harold to write, THR confirmed on Thursday (April 2).

The show was put on hold in January to “rethink its story. Hossein Amini had been working on the project, which a source said was potentially trodding on ground to similar to The Mandalorian, with the Jedi master Obi-Wan looking over Luke Skywalker –– perhaps mirroring how the Mandalorian watches over Baby Yoda in the popular Disney+ series that launched Lucasfilm into a new era of live action Star Wars TV shows,” according to the report.

Mandalorian director Deborah Chow will direct the Obi-Warn series, which does not yet have a release date.

This big star is possibly joining the cast of The Mandalorian.
