Star Wars characters who should get a spin-off series: Finn

The third of the three primary protagonists from the sequel trilogy, the character of Finn may arguably have the most untapped potential for his own story in the Star Wars galaxy, and it would surely make for a good live-action series.

When we first met Finn, he was called FN-2187, a Stormtrooper working for the First Order, before he would go on to abandon the Order, help Poe Dameron escape from captivity, and eventually join the Resistance.

His backstory was explored a bit more in The Rise of Skywalker during his conversation with Jannah, another ex-stormtrooper, that they were conscripted into the First Order as kids but deserted after getting a “feeling” from the Force that what they were doing was wrong.

Many fans felt that Finn’s personal character arc went largely unexplored, and John Boyega, the actor who portrayed him, agreed with that sentiment, stating that Finn had a lot of potential that Disney failed to capitalize on, including several teases that he may have been Force-sensitive.

Boyega has stated recently that he was open to returning to the Star Wars franchise, and giving him his own series to further explore his character could be a great way to make a return.

Finn could hypothetically be given his own story where he is the primary focus, possibly reuniting with Jannah to hunt down any remaining First Order outposts and freeing any children the First Order had kidnapped and trained to be future soldiers.

Doing a show based around this could help Finn to further confront his past as a member of the First Order, and give him a more substantive story than what he was given in the sequel trilogy.
