It looks like ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ really is the end of the road for this iteration of ‘Star Wars’ as most of the cast have stated that they are done with the galaxy far, far away once this picture arrives. The latest to shoot down hopes of seeing further adventures of their character is Oscar Isaac.
When asked if he would star in a ‘Poe Dameron’ Disney+ series, he replied:
Even after co-star, Keri Russell teased him about getting paid $3 million per episode, he stated that he was “Cashing in my chips,” meaning that he was done with this role and was walking away.

The first-ever live-action ‘Star Wars’ show, ‘The Mandalorian,’ is rolling out currently on Disney+ and has been a massive success. ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ starring Ewan McGregor and ‘Cassian Andor’ starring Diego Luna are also in the works. That’s in addition to the original movies and various animated series that are already offered. Plus, Disney+ is delivering a new season of ‘The Clone Wars’ and even a game show, ‘Jedi Temple Challenge’. So even without ‘Poe Dameron’, ‘Star Wars’ fans won’t be lacking in things to watch.
Fans will get one last appearance from Isaac as Poe in ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’, directed by J.J. Abrams with a script he co-wrote with Chris Terrio.

Grant as Allegiant General Pryde, Greg Grunberg as Snap Wexley, Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker (Force Ghost), Billie Lourd as Lieutenant Connix, Ian McDiarmid as Emperor Palpatine, Lupita Nyong’o as Maz Kanata, Daisy Ridley as Rey, Keri Russell as Zarii Bliss, Joonas Suotamo as Chewbacca, Kelly Marie Tran as Rose Tico, Jimmy Vee as R2-D2, Billy Dee Williams as Lando Calrissian, and Dave Chapman and Brian Herring as BB-8.
