Starring Amandla Stenberg as twins Osha and Mae, "The Acolyte" follows a Jedi Master (Lee Jung-jae) as he investigates a series of crimes and encounters a dangerous warrior from his past (Stenberg). As the story unfolds, they delve into a dark realm where sinister forces threaten their understanding of reality.

The series also features a star-studded cast including Charlie Barnett, Dafne Keen, Rebecca Henderson, Jodie Turner-Smith, Carrie-Anne Moss, Manny Jacinto, Dean-Charles Chapman and Joonas Suotamo. Created by Leslye Headland, the series is set towards the end of the High Republic era, roughly 100 years before "Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace".

Headland's previous credits include co-creating the Netflix hit "Russian Doll" as well as writing and directing the films "Bachelorette" and "Sleeping With Other People".
