Speaking at the Television Critics Association tour ABC president Channing Dungey noted that talks were ongoing with Lucasfilm about the project. “Oh, as a fan, I would absolutely love to say ‘yes.’ 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,” he told members of the press, although he added to The Wrap, “It’s all a little bit hush, hush…That company [Lucasfilm] exists under a huge banner of secrecy. If you thought Marvel was secretive, Lucas takes it to a whole other level… We don’t have an official timeline yet.”
There has been talk of a Star Wars TV series ever since production wrapped on Revenge of the Sith, but the sale of Lucasfilm seemed to bring things to a close.
