On This Day: March 7, 2014


By Ciaran Duggan,

Star Wars: The Clone Wars began airing its sixth season on Netflix on this day in 2014.

Just one year prior "The Clone Wars" had been cancelled on Cartoon Network and it seemed that the show would never re-surface.

Once it was public knowledge that 'The Clone Wars' had come to an end, Dave Filoni publicly came out to say that there would be a sixth season of the Clone Wars named 'Bonus Content'.

Filoni revealed this in an official Star Wars announcement, a video which amassed over a million views.

The sixth season consisted of 12 brand new episodes, including an arc about Order 66 and a spiritual journey which Master Yoda embarks on.

All previous five seasons of 'The Clone Wars' were made available to view on Netflix too.

Recently there have been rumors circulating that 'The Clone Wars" time on Netflix (Germany, USA and Canada) may well be coming to brisk end today. These reports remain unconfirmed, but it tells us "The Clone Wars" may not have long before it is removed from Netflix.

This would be a shame because "The Clone Wars" remains an important influence for creation of new Star Wars content, just look at the inclusion of Rebel freedom fighter Saw Gerrera in Rogue One and Ahsoka Tano in Star Wars Rebels.

Let us know your favourite memories of Star Wars The Clone Wars season six in the comments below.
