Hayden Christensen and Ewan McGregor are ready to go for another season of Obi-Wan Kenobi, making it clear in numerous interviews that they’re both not retiring their lightsabers any time soon.

While Lucasfilm has not confirmed if the limited series will get a sophomore season, every Star Wars fan wanted to see a little more of Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker before the series came to a close:

I want my boy Hayden Christensen back!
Why Obi Wan is so short? I will watch them again and again from now.

With Ian McDiarmid returning as Emporer Palpatine for the finale of Obi-Wan Kenobi, it’s possible that fans could be getting a deeper look into the inner workings of Darth Vader’s turmoil as a Sith Lord as he grapples with his twisted past, loss of his love Padmé Amidala (Natalie Portman), and his betrayal of the Jedi Order.

With Christensen keen on making more stories within the Star Wars universe, fans can only hope for a coming announcement soon.

The story begins ten years after the dramatic events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, where Obi-Wan Kenobi faced his most significant defeat—the downfall and corruption of his best friend and Jedi apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, who turned to the dark side as evil Sith Lord Darth Vader.
