@07jonesj - It's a guess and a logical one to make if they are mainly doing 4 part arcs. It's not fact, its a guess, speculation at present. We do need to take into account any possible move to a different network too and money that CN may have to pay extra to acquire the rights to air more episodes which now that Lucasfilm is owned by Disney, disney may not be so willing as to do that. I actually hope I'm wrong, but there are times when seasons have been shortened for other shows for various reasons. so it isn't uncommon. Ergo, its about how much CN can buy and air and before a possible move. If my speculation is correct then I'm sure it will be addressed in more of an official capacity soon.
