Renewed Or Cancelled?
Willow is the latest fantasy series that takes a beloved franchise and adds in a dose of teen angst and a longform story. After finishing all 8 episodes, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know:
What is Willow Season 1 about?
20 years after vanquishing queen Bavmorda and the forces of evil, sorcerer Willow Ufgood is back and leads a group of misfits on a dangerous rescue mission. With Airk off in the dangerous lands with the Crone, it’s up to arrogant Kit, her knight-in-training Jade, prisoner Boorman and Prince Graydon to join the Chosen One, Elora, to save the day.
We have extensive coverage of Willow across the site, including a full season review and recaps for every episode. You can find those HERE!
Has Willow been renewed for season 2?
At the time of writing, Willow has not been renewed for a second season. In fact, it has been confirmed by Empire that the show has been cancelled.
Generally Disney and other streamers gauge numerous metrics before renewing a show, including how many people initially watch it and then looking at the drop-off rate. With some shows, cancellations or renewals happen quickly (ala. Squid Game, Bridgerton & Irregulars) Other times, it can take months before Disney make a decision over a show’s future.
So far, Willow has had a pretty poor reaction, both from critics and audiences alike. Unlike Blood Origin, another fantasy show released this month, Willow has had a softer reaction from the fanbase but it’ll be interesting to see what the audience think of this one at the end.
Given the ending, and Disney’s reluctance at renewing many of its shows recently, we predict that Willow will not be renewed for a second season.
We’ll be sure to update this section with accurate details over the coming weeks and months when we know more!
What we know about season 2 so far:
Barely anything is known about season 2 at this point, given Disney have not green-lit a sequel. However, we do know that Warwick Davies is up for another round of magic and fantasy, while the writers are apparently begging Disney to green-light this one.
But as mentioned above, this will not be renewed. We’ll be sure to update this page in the future when more information is known though!
