New Female-Led Star Wars Series Coming to Disney Plus

There's a new female-led Star Wars series in development for Disney+ from Russian Doll co-creator Leslye Headland, Variety reports.

No details have been officially announced yet, but sources told Variety that Headland will reportedly serve as showrunner and co-writer for the untitled Star Wars series, and that "it will be a female-centric series that takes place in a different part of the Star Wars timeline than other projects".

There are currently two Star Wars TV series available at Disney+: The Mandalorian, which will premiere its second season this fall, and the final season of the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Disney is also developing live-action Star Wars titles centered around Rogue One's Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) and Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor).

Headland is known for directing multiple episodes of Russian Doll Season 1, a Netflix series nominated for 13 Emmy Awards, ultimately winning three.

It would be exciting to see a new female-led Star Wars series not connected to the Skywalker Saga, but details are still unclear about the upcoming show's story.
