Since the abrupt ending of Star Wars: The Clone Wars on Cartoon Network last season, fans have been left wondering what would happen to all the produced episodes of what would have been the show’s sixth season. Well, the answer is finally here, as Lucasfilm has announced that all 13 episodes of Clone War‘s sixth season, now called “The Lost Missions,” will come to Netflix on Friday, March 7th, as will all the previous five seasons of the show (and the original 2008 movie.) This is over one hundred episodes of content, and all in their uncut form not before seen on television.
Many mysteries left dangling from the end of the series are said to be resolved in these last episodes, including the mystery of the mental conditioning for the Clone Troopers that results in “Order 66″ and the wiping out of the Jedi Order in Revenge of the Sith. One loose plot thread not being resolved on the show is the final fate of Darth Maul, which will be resolved in comic book form instead in May from Dark Horse Comics.
The press release from Netflix:
The Galactic Republic, Disney/ABC Television Group, Lucasfilm and Netflix Inc. today announced the highly anticipated debut of the sixth and final season of the Emmy® Award-winning series Star Wars: The Clone Wars exclusively to Netflix members in the U.S. and Canada on Friday, March 7. Accompanying the 13-episode new season dubbed The Lost Missions will be the entire Star Wars: The Clone Wars saga, which includes several directors cut episodes never seen on TV as well as the feature film. This multi-year agreement also makes Netflix the exclusive subscription service for the entire Star Wars: The Clone Wars series.
In these eagerly anticipated episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, some of the deepest mysteries of the conflict between the light and the dark sides of the Force are revealed. An intrepid clone trooper discovers a shocking secret, Anakin Skywalker’s closest relationship is tested to its limits and what Master Yoda discovers while investigating the disappearance of a Jedi could forever change the balance of power in the galaxy. Fans will not only be able to watch the thrilling finale, theyll be able to see more of The Clone Wars than ever before as Netflix will also stream the directors cut of seasons 1-5.
