Fans of Days of our Lives' Christopher Sean (ex-Paul Narita) who also happen to be fans of the Star Wars franchise have cause to celebrate: the soap opera alum's animated series Star Wars Resistance has been picked up for another season.
Sean took to Instagram with the news, writing: "So excited to announce we are renewed for season two! This show is only getting better and better. Definitely tune in, everyone!"
The actor, who has Japanese heritage, also took the season renewal news as an opportunity to state how important it is for him to be representing Asian Americans on-screen.
"I'm so proud to be a part of this team," he writes. "Huge steps forward. Honored to be representing #AsianAmericans in a Galaxy Far Far Away... #Inclusion matters. We are all equal, not one more important than the other."
