‘Star Wars Rebels’ Final Season Will Air Mostly as Double-Episodes
We’ve waited months for intel on Star Wars Rebels’ fourth and final season, and there’s good news and bad for the October premiere. A new Disney XD schedule reveals exactly when each new episode will air, but the final season will go quickly with all the double-airings.
Even as Rebels premieres commonly last a full hour, and the Season 4 debut on Monday, October 16 will similarly air both halves of “Heroes of Mandalore,” a full 2017 schedule confirmed a surprising number of double-airings. The dual-episode approach will last through November, breaking for the holiday until the final episodes premiere in 2018:
Monday, 10/16 – “Heroes of Mandalore” Parts 1 & 2
Monday, 10/23 – “In the Name of the Rebellion” Parts 1 & 2
Monday, 10/30 – “The Occupation” and “Flight of the Defender”
Monday, 11/6 – “Kindred” and “Crawler Commandeers”
Monday, 11/13 – “Rebel Assault”
It isn’t clear if the remaining 2018 episodes will similarly double-up through the “top-secret series finale,” but we also know episodes will air five times a day on Mondays: 12:30 A.M. ET/PT, 3:00 A.M. ET/PT, 7:30 A.M. ET/PT, 5:30 P.M. ET/PT, and 9:00 P.M. ET/PT.
Elsewhere, Star Wars Rebels Season 4 will feature the Star Wars: Rogue One returns of Forest Whitaker’s Saw Gerrera and Genevieve O’Reilly’s Mon Mothma, with Katee Sackhoff reprising her Clone Wars role of Bo Katan, and Warwick Davis voicing Thrawn’s bodyguard, Rukh. Other reports have even suggested that OG Star Wars alum Ian McDiarmid might reprise his role as Emperor Palpatine.
We’ll hear more of Star Wars Rebels’ fourth and final season in the coming weeks, so watch the first trailer again below, and stay tuned.
