Sith Lord Darth Vader (Hayden Christensen) is back in black, but his Master wasn’t too far behind. When Emporer Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid) made a shocking cameo at the G, fans knew that Lucasfilm had something up its sleeve with the future of these beloved characters.

With Hayden Christensen and Ewan McGregor committing so much physical, emotional, and psychological dedication in returning to their respective, iconic roles after 17 years, it’s evident that the dynamic duo aren’t leaving behind the Skywalker saga anytime soon.

Now, Lucasfilm legend Ian McDiarmid is back in the saddle, and fans are ready for a solo Vader series starring Christensen and the evil Emporer himself:

Give Hayden a #Vader series. PLEASE!

The Star Wars fanbase has spoken: it was terrific seeing Palpatine once again:

always overjoyed to see Ian McDiarmid come back to give us more Palpatine. greatest villain of all time

With countless source material, including Legends novelizations and comics of Darth Vader’s crusade through the galaxy, and the fact that Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy just said that a Kenobi season two is incredibly likely (depending on fan outreach and the logistics of a solid new story to tell), the possibilities of having another meetup between Darth Vader and Emporer Palpatine on the streaming screen is likely!

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.
