The fourth season of Star Wars Rebels will premiere this month and as the Disney XD animated series prepares to wind down, a number of fans have been wondering if Emperor Palpatine might be making an appearance in the final year of the show. Unfortunately, fans hoping that the Sith Lord would emerge from the shadows before the series comes to an end will be disappointed as Dave Filoni has confirmed that the final season will not feature an appearance by the Emperor.
Benjamin Hart of Star Wars Underworld reports that Filoni himself confirmed that news at Fan Expo 2017. Fortunately, the series will have no shortage of villains as Grand Admiral Thrawn and Grand Moff Tarkin will be returning in season 4.
