Star Wars: The Clone Wars Is Making A Comeback

In 2014, writer Brett Friedman told a fan on Twitter that scripts for Clone Wars' seventh and eighth season had been completed prior to the series' cancellation, but it remains to be seen if those stories will be used in the upcoming new seasons.

If you thought Star Wars was done telling tales in the prequel era, think again.

Over on StarWars.com, Dave Filoni also offered a little more intel on The Clone Wars revival, along with the show's long, meandering journey back to television.

The series, which began in 2008 when George Lucas made a decision to turn the first few episodes into an animated movie, covers the conflict in the galaxy far, far away that preceded the Empire. The series was loved by many fans to say the least. In the Ahsoka Tano novel, we learn that Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Ahsoka reunite for the first time since Ahsoka left the Jedi Order on Mandalore.


As Lucasfilm announced to a surprised fandom at San Diego Comic Con on Thursday, The Clone Wars - the animated series set between Episodes II and II - is getting one more season, five years after its abrupt cancelation.

"I am so happy that one of my favorite TV shows is coming back and looking better than ever", someone else commented.

There's no word yet on exactly when we'll see these new episodes, but Disney's streaming service is slated to be unveiled sometime in 2019. The sixth season, which was released exclusively to Netflix, was followed by a book titled "Dark Disciple" that was based off the direction The Clone Wars planned to go before Disney purchased the rights to Star Wars. It also makes me reflect on all the people that I got to work with over the years. "So, it's nice on several levels, and I think for the crew that's still here that worked on Clone Wars, they feel that, as well". The Clone Wars was also where we learned that the villainous Darth Maul, who battled Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan in live-action in Episode I: The Phantom Menace, survived the events of that epic lightsaber fight and ended up with mechanical legs.
