Is Star Wars Rebels set to come to an end at the end of this season?

Is Star Wars: Rebels coming to an end? It’s looking likely according to online chatter among the online fan community.

It might not necessarily come as a shock given how quickly the series has been moving, not to mention the events of the recently released movie Rogue One.

If it doesn’t come as a shock though it will certainly come as a disappointment but it’s already been reported that Dave Filoni is working on another animated series set in the SWU.

Dork Side Of The Force reports: “As TVWeb notes, Rebels was renewed in November of 2015 for season 3. Logically, a renewal for season 4 should have come at a similar time in 2016. But it didn’t.

“So, is season 3 Rebels’ last?

“It looks likely. The writing has been on the wall since we first learned that Rebels would be set between Revenge and Hope. That essentially left both Rebels and Rogue One with expiration dates, as you can’t easily begin running shows concurrently with films that have already occurred. If Rebels ends with some sort of showdown with Thrawn, the upcoming Star Wars Celebration in April would be the perfect time to announce both the end of Rebels. SWCO would also be an ideal venue for the announcement of the launch of a new Star Wars animated series, which Rebels creator Dave Filoni is reportedly working on.”

We’re really loving Rebels right now, especially after the release of Rogue One and we hope there’s nothing to this report.

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
