After Star Wars Rebels returns on February 18 with “Legacy of Mandalore,” there will only be a six episodes left until the end of season three. The season will wrap up with a 2-part finale on March 25, three weekends before Star Wars Celebration kicks off in Orlando, Florida.
Following Sabine’s voyage home in “Legacy of Mandalore” and the team attempting to rescue a rebel spy in “Through Imperial Eyes,” the Ghost crew need to transport an important Rebel leader in “Secret Cargo.” I can’t help but think that this leader is Mon Mothma, who briefly appeared in the mid-season three trailer. Then, the crew find something odd is going on with Chopper and AP-5 in “Double Agent Droid.” Things continue to escalate when Ezra sees a vision of Maul in “Twin Suns” and when the Rebel base on Atollon is discovered by Thrawn and his forces in “Zero Hour: Parts 1 and 2.”
Episode 318: “Secret Cargo”

When a routine refueling mission goes wrong, the Ghost crew find themselves transporting an important rebel leader across the galaxy, pursued by Imperial warships.
Episode 319: “Double Agent Droid”

Episode 321: “Zero Hour: Part 1”
Air date: March 25, 2017
In final preparations for their attack on Lothal, Phoenix Squadron’s plans are disrupted when Grand Admiral Thrawn discovers their location.
Episode 322: “Zero Hour: Part 2”
Air date: March 25, 2017
Trapped on Atollon with the rebel base under siege, Hera and Kanan fight to keep the squadron alive, as Ezra attempts to rally help from an unexpected source.
Some fans were shocked to see that the Maul vs. Obi-Wan episode will not be the season finale. It’s important to remember, however, that Maul is not the focus of the series. The series follows the Ghost crew and the particular cell to which they’re attached, something Thrawn has been trying to hunt down since the start of the season. It makes sense that it all comes down to this discovery.
Although nothing has been officially announced yet, fans attending Star Wars Celebration Orlando in mid April might be the first to see the season four premiere of Star Wars Rebels. That’s been the case in the past, but many are also wondering whether season four will be the last season or if there’s more to come? We’ll just have to wait and see.
