The rebellion will continue on Disney X D.

The cable channel has picked up a third season of “Star Wars Rebels,” its series chronicling the events between Episodes III and IV of the movie saga. The new season has gone back into production and will premiere sometime in 2016.

“We are proud to bring our audience a third season of ‘Star Wars Rebels,’ a series that has resonated across generations.” Disney X D general manager Marc Buhaj says in a statement on “The creative team behind the series continues to do a brilliant job in delivering on the key tenets that fans have come to expect from a ‘Star Wars’ property, including adventure, hope and the battle between good vs. evil.”

Season 2 of “Star Wars Rebels” is Disney X D’s No. 2 series in viewers (1.3 million) and the kid demographics it targets, and the top-rated one among adults 18-49.

The show joins these series that have been renewed for 2016 and beyond.
