Good news, STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS fans: the sixth and final season of the animated series will start streaming on Netflix on March 7th, 2014. All 13 new episodes (called "The Lost Missions") will be available on the streaming service, but that's not all. The first five seasons that aired on Cartoon Network, director's cuts of episodes, and the animated movie will also be available. Check out the official announcement from Netflix below.

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 director’s 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, they’ll be able to see more of The Clone Wars than ever before as Netflix will also stream the director’s cut of seasons 1 – 5.

“Stars Wars is one of the most iconic franchises of all time and this series joins a long line of Disney content that Netflix members are and will continue to enjoy for years to come,” said Ted Sarandos, Netflix chief content officer. “The Clone Wars marks an important moment as Netflix welcomes more and more first-run content from The Walt Disney Company and its subsidiaries.”

Star Wars: The Clone Wars is the first time any Star Wars content has been available for Netflix streaming members. The deal follows a recent announcement from Netflix and The Walt Disney Company to bring multiple original series based on Marvel characters to the service in 2015. Netflix will be the exclusive U.S. subscription television service for first-run, live-action and animated movies from the Walt Disney Studios including titles from Disney, Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar Animation Studios, Marvel Studios, Disneynature and Lucasfilm beginning in 2016. Netflix members can currently enjoy a wide range of Disney, ABC Entertainment Group and Disney Channel films and TV shows across the 41 countries where Netflix operates.

A clip from the upcoming episodes has also been released, featuring Yoda and a cameo from Qui-Gon Jinn (Liam Neeson). The new episodes will focus on the aftermath of Ahsoka leaving the Jedi order, and they will also reveal why some Jedi fade away after they die, and others don't. I've only seen a few episodes of STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS, but I know some are huge fans of the show, and most were disappointed when it was canceled last year. It's always shitty when a show you love has been canceled, but at least now you'll be able to enjoy one final season of STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS.

One aspect I would love to know is...

Will they be addressing the unfinished Darth Maul- story arc? My favorite SW character...felt so great to see him back (if even for just a few ep's.) So I hope they @ least finsh it proper.

Looking forward to it.

This series is a major, major step up from the prequels. I found myself getting a bit emotional for the clone troopers in regards to some of the darker episodes where they question why they're being used as cannon fodder. (These guys are 'clones' but each of them have their own personality). Definitely some excellent voice acting and writing that gives us the Star Wars we experienced with 'A New Hope' and 'Empire Strikes Back.'

I'm looking forward to seeing how they close out this series,

I'm looking forward to seeing how they close out this series, and possibly looking to buy the 6 seasons on blu-ray when it is available.

This was a good show. I haven't seen the entire series to date, only up to season 4. But this is great news as I've heard the 5th season ends on a huge cliffhanger and fans will be able to get some closure on the series. Personally, I'm never angry when a show gets cancelled. I just hate it when a show gets cancelled and no one gives them the time to wrap things up for fans.

Netflix does it again

Whenever Netflix disappoints me by losing dozens of films in "My List", they comeback with great content. I'll finally be able to catch up on this since I stopped watching after season 2.

Excellent

I never got around to watching any of the Clone Wars series, so I'm definitely looking forward to watching this on Netflix.

Awesome!

I thought the series was cancelled. The ending of the fifth season was ok, but not enough to wrap up the story. Great news.
