Ahsoka’s Journey on Disney+
The Star Wars universe continues to expand on the Disney+ platform. This time, with the release of “Ahsoka”, fans are abuzz about the episode count, storyline depth, and when they can expect the grand finale. The streaming platform, since its launch of “The Mandalorian” in 2019, has presented a variety of Star Wars shows, each unique in its own right. Yet, each show varies, not just in quality, but also in terms of episode count. While “The Mandalorian” maintained consistency with eight episodes a season, others like “The Book of Boba Fett” and “Obi-Wan Kenobi” had seven and six episodes respectively.

The Future of “Ahsoka” in the Star Wars Galaxy
While the series might wrap up this October, the universe of “Ahsoka” will not fade into obscurity. As rumors suggest, “Ahsoka” will lay the groundwork for Dave Filoni’s forthcoming Mandalorian-era film, ensuring the saga remains alive and pulsating.
How Many Episodes to Expect?
Dave Filoni’s masterpiece, “Ahsoka”, consists of eight episodes in total, aligning with the standard set by its predecessors like “The Mandalorian“. With the first two episodes premiering on August 22, and episodes 3 and 4 being released in the weeks that followed, fans can anticipate four more episodes, all releasing weekly on Tuesdays.
Runtime of the Episodes
For those curious about the length of each episode, Dave Filoni hints that “Ahsoka” will share similar runtimes to “The Mandalorian”.

The initial episodes of “Ahsoka” clocked in at an hour and 36 minutes combined, while the third episode was 37 minutes and the fourth spanned 40 minutes, credits included.
