The third season of ‘Star Wars Rebels‘ has another ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ character returning! At the Sydney Comic-Con, the Katee Sackhoff (‘Battlestar Galactica’,’Oculus‘) confirmed she is set to reprise her role as Bo-Katan Kryze though she didn’t delveing into details on how or why she’ll be making an appearance.
For those unfamiliar with the character, Bo-Katan Kryze is a Mandalorian warrior who played an interesting role in the original series. She was part of a Mandalorian splinter group called the Death Watch under Pre Vizsla. However, when Darth Maul having killed her leader, she ended up helping out Obi-wan Kenobi so there is a chance we’ll see her helping with the Rebels but that alliance may have only proven to be temporary.
On top of that great casting news, we’ve also learned the episode titles for the first six for the upcoming season!
01-02: “Steps into Shadow, Parts 1 & 2” – USA: 24/09/2016
03: “The Holocrons of Fate” – USA: 10/01/2016

It sounds like we’re going to have some space battles and dogfights to look forward to. Though, “The Last Battle” has a chilling ring to it. It makes you wonder whose last battle it will end up being.
Star Wars Rebels Season 3 Synopsis:
Having established a secret base on Atollon, the Ghost crew, now led by a more powerful Ezra, strengthens the rebel fleet by acquiring new resources and recruits eager to stand against the Empire. However, the Imperial efforts to eliminate the rebellion are now being led by the coldly analytical Grand Admiral Thrawn, whose strategic, tactical, and cultural insights make him a threat unlike any they have faced before. In Season Three, Ezra and Sabine take on new roles and challenges as the rebels prepare for their biggest mission yet — a direct assault on the Empire.
‘Star Wars Rebels’ will premiere on Disney XD on September 24th at 8:30pm ET
