On March 11, 2013, Lucasfilm announced that Detours would be postponed until a later date as the company furthers development of the Star Wars sequel trilogy, as they reconsidered whether releasing a comedy series prior to the project "makes sense".[4] As of September 20, 2013, 39 episodes have been completed, with an additional 62 finished scripts.[1]
