Trivia

  • Season 6 was first officially announced by Dave Filoni in the Star Wars Insider magazine, though head writer Christian Taylor stated in September 2011 that they had already written through the season.

Release after cancellation

Because of the October 2012 acquisition of Lucasfilm Ltd by The Walt Disney Company, The Clone Wars ended its contract with Cartoon Network, and no information regarding Season Six was released until news came on StarWars.com on March 11, 2013, which stated that no more seasons would air, but individual Clone Wars arcs would be produced as a proper finale to the series, which they only named "Bonus Content."

Initially, it was confirmed that the Bonus Content would consist of two story-arcs, one pertaining to Rush Clovis—originally set for Season 5—and the other pertaining to Clone Trooper Tup killing a Jedi General under mysterious circumstances. It was later announced, by release of another clip, that a third arc would be among the content, delving into the mystery of Jedi Master Sifo-Dyas. Afterwards, an arc pertaining to Yoda was announced, but an interview with Tom Kane stated that the Yoda preview and Sifo-Dyas preview were from the same arc. At the Star Wars: Celebration Europe II convention in Essen, Germany from July 26 to July 28, 2013, Dave Filoni and artist Pablo Hidalgo hinted at a fourth "Bounty Hunter" story-arc to be released as well, which would show the fates of the likes of Boba Fett, Cad Bane, and Aurra Sing. However, this arc ultimately did not appear in the season; scattered reports state that this story was not released due to continuity conflicts with upcoming films.

But on October 11, 2013, Dave Filoni announced on his Facebook page that production for all remaining The Clone Wars episodes had finished and they would all be released, possibly on television, sometime in early 2014. The content was rumored to be released on Apple TV. Filoni also announced that a four-episode arc from Season Six would be adapted into a comic, titled Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir.

On January 16, 2014, Super RTL (a television network in Germany) announced that it would be airing the Season Six episodes on Saturdays starting on February 15. On February 13, Lucasfilm announced that Season Six, along with all seasons prior and the feature film, would be available on Netflix on March 7, 2014 under the name of "The Lost Missions."
