Season one of Star Wars Rebels is drawing to a close, and while we don't know exactly how episodes are left to be aired this season, we may have an idea about next season. Freddie Prinze Jr., who voices Kanan Jarrus on the show, recently tweeted an interesting behind the scenes tidbit about season two of Rebels:
#StarWarsRebels I cant wait for season 2 to start for you guys. We recorded nearly twice as many episodes. You guys are gonna love it!
— Freddie Prinze Jr (@RealFPJr) January 30, 2015
There are currently 13 episodes that make up season one, including the TV movie Spark Of Rebellion and three upcoming episodes. It's unclear whether this is all the episodes, or more are still yet to be announced. We speculated on the latest SWU Podcast that season one may continue further. If what Freddie is saying is correct, and he's certainly a trustworthy source, then that could mean that season two could be around 22 episodes in length, similarly to it's predecessor Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Season two is slated to premiere at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim in April with a special screening of the first two episodes. This has lead to speculation that season two could begin airing on television soon after. An extended season could last through the summer lead into the release of The Force Awakens.
As always, we will await an official announcement from Lucasfilm!
