Star Wars: Will Samuel L. Jackson Return As Mace Windu?
Okay, so the idea of Samuel L. Jackson/Mace Windu returning to Star Wars is not new.
In fact, “Jules Winfield” himself likes to fuel the fires of rumors, speculation that has Master Windu wandering the galaxy like Caine.

Will Windu Return?
WeGotThisCovered.com’s Christian Bone reported:
The incoming Obi-Wan Kenobi TV show is set to be the treat that fans of the prequels have been waiting for. While the Sequel Trilogy pretty much side-stepped everything to do with George Lucas’ traditionally maligned movies, the Disney Plus series will bring back Ewan McGregor’s former Jedi Master and continue his adventures past Revenge of the Sith. What’s more, the signs are pointing to it resurrecting various other prequel characters, as well…
And now, we’re hearing from our sources – the same ones who said the Obi-Wan series will also feature a young Luke and that Rey was Palpatine’s [SPOILERS], both of which have since been confirmed – that Samuel L. Jackson will likewise be included via flashback, reprising his role as fan-favorite Mace Windu. Of course, Jackson recently expressed a desire to play Windu at least one more time and while we thought this was a reference to his surprise vocal cameo, alongside McGregor, Christensen and many others, in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, this was hardly a proper return.

However, for my money, the greatest Mace Windu scene on TV has already happened:
