WhenLucasfilmshould have fully dedicated to the productionObi-Wan Kenobi TV show, the studio has left the Obi-Wan Kenobi show suspended by reason of worry about the shows plot.

Despite the fact that the production is now on hold and only four episodes will be cast, the actorEwanMcGregorstill holding his place as well asChowis also staying as the director of the show, however, a new script team is getting recruited.
The decreased number of the shows episodes just explains the up and down of the Lucasfilm effort to put McGregor back on his foot.

Still, now it is too early to believe this news of cutting down 2 episodes from the show is a wise decision or the downfall of the studio. The Obi-Wan fans would never be happy with this news since they might need to wait a bit longer for the TV show release, and they may likely strain out their interest from the series entirely.
