New Female-Centric 'Star Wars' Disney+ Series in the Works from the Co-Creator of Netflix's 'Russian Doll'
Leslye Headland, the co-creator, showrunner, and executive producer of Netflix’s Russian Doll will create the new Disney+ series.
The exact plot is being kept under wraps but according to sources, it will be a female-centric series that takes place in a different part of the Star Wars timeline. Headland is attached to write and be the showrunner on the series, and they are already staffing the writers' room.
Headland is a co-creator, executive producer, and showrunner for the critically-acclaimed Netflix series Russian Doll. She currently has an overall deal with Fox 21 Television Studios which is now owned by Disney.
This news is just fresh after the announcement that The Mandalorian Season 3 is already in the works. This series will be the fourth Star Wars Disney+ series in development along with The Mandalorian, the untitled Cassian Andor series, and the Obi-Wan Kenobi series.
It looks like there are no signs of slowing down for Disney+ when it comes to original Star Wars content. I have a feeling this isn't the last time we will be reporting that a new Disney+ Star Wars series is in development.
