The final episode ended with a bang and a massive surprise for all fans of the franchise with a few notable characters finally making appearances. During the closing moments of Episode Vi, as Obi-Wan was journeying the Tatooine desert, a mysterious entity surfaces out of nowhere, which was then revealed to be none other than Qui-Gon Jinn, played by prequel trilogy icon Liam Neeson.

The hair-raising cameo lasted for only 10 seconds and while it may have looked like it was only included for that much-needed fan service, Qui-Gon's return might be setting up something more.

Now, the question of everyone's mind is: will Obi-Wan Kenobi actually spawn a second season? It's worth noting that there have been rumors floating around that Lucasfilm has in fact greenlit Season 2 but the show's creators have kept mum about it.

Well, if you watched the finale closely, the surprise encounter between Obi-Wan and Qui-Gon might have teased the story's continuation and there's a good chance that Liam Neeson will make more appearances in the franchise in the foreseeable future.

All episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi are available for streaming on Disney+.
