Currently, there’s no word on whether or not The Book of Boba Fett will be getting a second season, but the show’s stars have expressed hopes for a return. Recently, Ming-Na Wen (Fennec Shand) tweeted about the “first season” coming to an end, which led people to think a second season had been greenlit, but she later clarified her statement.

“Everyone jumped to conclusions when I called it the first season. What else would I call it?!!” Wen tweeted. “To clarify, it doesn’t imply there’s a 2nd. But I’m keeping my fingers crossed! Enjoy all the chapters of [The Book of Boba Fett].”

As for Morrison, the actor has his own hopes about where the show can go. Decades after Mace Windu’s apparent demise in Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith, Morrison wants to put a bounty on the potentially still alive Mace Windu.

“I owe him big time for my dad. He’s done. He’s done,” Morrison told IMDB‘s On the Scene. “I’ve got my eye on him. He’s top of the list, in fact.” When Wen suggested “slow torture” at the hands of Master Assassin Fennec Shand, Morrison said, “Definitely, yes.”

The Book of Boba Fett is now streaming on Disney+. Star Wars Celebration is taking place May 26th through May 29th. You can check out the panel schedule here.
