Star Wars Rebels Season 4 looks to bring the beginning of the end to the series in a big way, as the final season of the show will start things off with a bang with a pair of two-part episodes and a new weekly schedule.
According to Jedi-Bibliothek, the names of the first six episodes of Rebels Season 4 have been revealed:
- Episodes 1 & 2: “Heroes of Mandalore: Part 1 & 2” (October 16, 2017)
- Episodes 3 & 4: “In the Name of the Rebellion: Part 1 & 2” (October 23, 2017)
- Episode 5: “The Occupation” (October 30, 2017)
- Episode 6: “Flight of the Defender” (October 30, 2017)
What’s really interesting is here is that the release pattern suggests that we’ll be getting two episodes a day from here on out. WIth a season of 16 episodes, this means that the series could hypothetically conclude on December 4 – which is actually before The Last Jedi hits theaters – provided, of course, that none of those pesky hiatuses enter the picture. (Two hiatuses, or days where only a single episode airs, could be permitted in this case.)
But what’s also interesting is when these episodes are airing – Monday nights. And instead of there being a standard premiere time for each episodes, the episodes will be shown over the course of the day they premiere:
Sure – premieres are Mondays and broadcast times are 12:30a, 3:00a, 7:30a, 5:30p and 9:00p.

Star Wars Underworld is also reporting that those who don’t want to wait until thirty after midnight can beat the broadcast to the punch by a whole twenty-nine minutes if they have the Disney XD app, which allows fans to watch episodes on the go.
