Is a Star Wars TV show in the works at ABC?

Big news for Star Wars fans! During the Television Critics Association semi-annual press tour this week, ABC's Entertainment President, Channing Dungey suggested a Star Wars TV show could be a possibility since Disney acquired the franchise in 2012. 

According to Entertainment Weekly, Dungey is not only interested in the idea, but have actually been in talks trying to make it a reality. Dungey stated:

“Oh, as a fan, I would absolutely love to say ‘Yes,’” she said. “The conversations with Lucas, we have had conversations with them and will continue to have conversations with them. I think it would be wonderful if we could find a way to extend that brand into our programming.”

All of us here at On the Mic are huge Star Wars fans, and the idea of a continual expanding Star Wars Universe is just music to our ears. Disney has already had great success with Star Wars Rebels, so there's not any reason to think that a potential live action Star Wars TV show wouldn't be a success as well. Let's keep our fingers crossed that this becomes a reality.
