It’s happening! The final season of The Clone Wars is just around the corner and there’s a new trailer to hype up fans.
Now, if you’re thinking, “Wait, I thought The Clone Wars already had a final season?” You are… sort of correct. The popular animated show first aired on Cartoon Network in 2008 and ran for five seasons. And if you’re like, “But wasn’t there an animated The Clone Wars movie that released in theaters?” The answer is yes but we don’t really talk about it.
Then, in 2012, Disney bought Lucasfilm and decided to end the series, which didn’t sit well with fans. Disney replaced The Clone Wars with new animated shows called Rebels and Resistance. But The Clone Wars fans rallied so hard that Netflix paid for a sixth and, at the time, final season aka “The Lost Missions” to air in 2014.
Then Disney announced Disney+ and things changed. At the 2019 D23 Expo, Disney announced it was bringing the series back one last time. But supervising director Dave Filoni tells EW this really is the last season.
“It is,” he says. “It will conclude the story that [George Lucas] and I started together. There could be stories after that that take place with a lot of those characters. But especially for me directing Clone Wars, being that hands on, I wrote and directed the final four episodes. It’s the end of something I feel really good about.”
Since Disney was originally responsible for The Clone Wars’ end on Cartoon Network, it’s nice to see them bringing the series to a fitting conclusion now that the company has its own streaming service. The seventh and actual final season will air in February 2020 on Disney+ and will feature 12 episodes. According to Filoni, will see Darth Maul and Ahsoka Tano returning to battle called “the Siege of Mandalore.”
