Fans were thrilled to learn that there was a seventh and final season of ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars‘ coming to finish the story. We’ve all been wanting more details of the climactic installment and now we’ve learned when we can start to watch it! Not only that, but showrunner Dave Filoni who is responsible for this epic saga is weighing in on the seventh season and confirms that it will be the final one as well.
The details of these final 12-episodes came up during this year’s D23 where we learned that February of 2020 is when ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ will be released on Disney+. Now, we’ve recently been hearing reports that these shows will be released episodically and not all at once for a giant binge-watching fest so we can assume the release should likely be spread over three or more months. This last part has yet to be confirmed for ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ but it seems that it will likely be the case. We’ll keep you updated as we learn more.
As to this truly being the final season? Filoni directly weighed in with:
“It is. 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.”
The show initially came to a close with the fifth season in 2012, but that wouldn’t mark the end of the Clone Wars. At the time, Netflix and Disney still had a good working relationship, and the streaming network paid for a sixth season to drop in 2014. Things went quiet after that, and now, finally, we’ll be able to see this tale come to a proper conclusion.
