Even before the first episode of Star Wars Rebels concluded on DisneyXD, Lucasfilm has been given the go ahead for season two.

“The global expectations for this series could not have been any higher,” said Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer of Disney Channels Worldwide. “And I am proud to say that the team at Lucasfilm has delivered something that has surpassed even that incredibly high bar – artistically and thematically.”

Considering that Star Wars Rebels is part of the new Star Wars continuity, this is an even greater reason for Star Wars fans to watch the series and be excited about what is coming next season and how these will tie into the Star Wars movies.  If you didn’t get a chance to watch the pilot premiere, take a listen to Zach Woolf’s review of the one hour event.

The series officially kicks off on October 13, 2014 at 9:00 PM on Disney XD.

    I wasn’t all that surprised when I heard they had renewed the series before it even aired. Clone Wars did pretty well, and there are a LOT of fans that wanted something that took place after the fall of the Republic, so it seems reasonable to me.

      I agree. Clone wars got better as the series went on, around 3-4th season it go really good and I hope Rebels catches that pace quicker.

        Since they won’t have to tiptoe as much around the characters like they did with the cast being mostly existing characters on Clone Wars, I’m cautiously optimistic.
