Chances of the Star Wars Rebels season 4 renewal seem doubtful as the case against it builds up. Find out why another season for the series is unlikely.
Star Wars Rebels recently teased the return of Saw Gerrera to the animated series. He made his debut appearance during the two-part episode Ghosts of Geonosis last January.
Teasers also revealed the comeback of Obi-Wan Kenobi and his likely confrontation with Darth Maul. Yet in spite of these spoilers, it would seem season 3 might be the last for Star Wars Rebels.
Star Wars Rebels Season 4 Rumors
Admittedly, Disney and Lucasfilm have yet to confirm rumors about the Star Wars Rebels season 4 renewal. However, various clues appear to build a strong case against it.
Interestingly, the season 3 renewal came in November 2015. Hence, many would expect a Star Wars Rebels season 4 renewal to have happened around the same time. Then again, it did not.
According to TV Web, the delay could possibly be due to plans for a new Star Wars animated series to take its place. Rebels creator Dave Filoni is reportedly working on a new show. Apparently, he stepped into a larger position last year.
As it turns out, he now manages future animation development for Lucasfilm. Hence, the assumption of an announcement at the upcoming Star Wars Celebration in April. Incidentally, the current season ends on March 25. Nonetheless, its finale promises to be a spectacular ending with the reported showdown with Grand Admiral Thrawn.
However, rumors aside, three seasons was the intention for Star Wars Rebels from the start given its time period. According to the dorksideoftheforce, like Rogue One, the animated series has an expiration date since it takes place between Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: A New Hope.

Lucasfilm released the trailer for episode 15 and offered a sneak peek of Sabine’s first encounter with her mother. As revealed, their reunion was not like most happy family events, as her mother wants her thrown in a cell to await trial. However, the Darksaber in Sabine’s possession could possibly change her mind.
