The Bones Have Spoken: Disney Cancels ‘Willow’ After One Seaon

(L-R): Graydon (Tony Revolori), Boorman (Amar Chadha-Patel), Dove (Ellie Bamber), Kit (Ruby Cruz), Willow Ufgood (Warwick Davis) and Jade (Erin Kellyman) in Lucasfilm’s WILLOW exclusively on Disney+. ©2022 Lucasfilm Ltd. & TM. All Rights Reserved.

The Disney Plus streaming series Willow, which served as a sequel to the 1988 cult classic film of the same name, has been cancelled after just one season.

The series saw Warwick Davis return as Willow Ufgood and picked up the story of Elora Danan 20 years after the defeat of Queen Bavmorda. Co-showrunner Jonathan Kasdan worked for years to get the sequel series made, having broached the subject during conversation with Davis and Ron Howard, who directed the original film, during production on Solo: A Star Wars Story.

As Deadline reported, though the series won’t continue, the IP itself remains of interest at Lucasilm; however, as Disney looks to cut back on its programming budget across the board, a second season of Willow wasn’t in the cards.
