Russian Doll co-creator, showrunner, and executive producer Leslye Headland is working on a female-centered Star Wars series for Disney+.

While the details are still unknown, it will take place in a different part of the Star Wars timeline than other projects and there will be martial art elements.

This will be the latest Disney+ original series in the Star Wars universe, following The Mandalorian, created by Jon Favreau, which is already filming Season 3 before it’s Season 2 debut date in October. The Mandalorian also has a strong female element in Cara Dune played by Gina Carano.

There are two other Star Wars series in development at Disney+, an Obi-Wan Kenobi series with Ewan McGregor and a Rogue One series based on the 2016 feature film with Diego Luna returning to play Cassian Andor.
