The series was in production of a sixth season but was cancelled shortly after the Season 5 finale because of Disney's buyout of Lucasfilm, who wanted a tv show on their own network and did not want to invest in a ChannelHop for one starting to wrap up. The episodes in production were [[TheResolutionWillNotBeTelevised released as a Netflix exclusive]], with unproduced story arcs adapted into other mediums: ''ComicBook/DarthMaulSonOfDathomir'' served as a comic-book adaptation of a four-episode storyline and ''Literature/DarkDisciple'', starring Asajj Ventress and Quinlan Vos, was released on July 7th, 2015.

That poster is a much better representation of the series. Not some calendar with stock art.

'''Yoda:''' No longer certain that one ever does win a war, I am. For in fighting the battles, the bloodshed, already lost we have. Yet, open to us a path remains, that unknown to the Sith is. Through this path, victory we may yet find. Not victory in the Clone Wars, but victory for all time

The series is a SpiritualSuccessor to the ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsCloneWars'', the 2003-2005 mini-episode AnimatedSeries created by Creator/GenndyTartakovsky. While having no writers or producers in common other than Creator/GeorgeLucas, it [[AdaptationExpansion borrows many design and plot elements from its predecessor]] while having a longer format to build on the characters and stories. [[Creator/DaveFiloni Dave Filoni]] (previously known for his work on ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'') is director and head writer. The series premiered as a theatrical film, which originally started as a [[FiveEpisodePilot four-part]] opening episode arc for the series, but was converted into a CompilationMovie after Lucas screened the episodes himself. The movie was critically panned and subject to fan backlash, but the series itself has been better received ([[PopularityPolynomial along with the movie itself, once it came out on DVD]]), likely because it is shown in the medium for which it was intended. A major advantage of the television format and [[AdoredByTheNetwork choice timeslot]] is the inclusion of PG-13 level content. [[AnyoneCanDie Characters are killed]] [[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath in unsettling and dramatic fashion]], and some adult language and mild sexual content have [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar slipped in under the radar]]. Like ''Clone Wars'', episodes feature [[AscendedExtra more obscure Jedi]], [[ADayInTheLimelight stories centered entirely]] [[LowerDeckEpisode around Clone Troopers]] and sometimes even the politicians. In ''Star Wars'' history the Clone Wars was a violent struggle between the secessionist Confederacy of Independent Systems (The "Separatists") and the Galactic Republic. The Republic did not previously have a unified military, but ''Episode II: AttackOfTheClones'' revealed that a secret conspiracy had provided the Republic with a fully stocked and trained army composed of cloned soldiers with which to pursue the war. Members of the Jedi Order serve as the generals of the clone army, with their own legions and loyal clone commanders. In the pilot movie Anakin Skywalker is forcibly given a Padawan, Ahsoka Tano, and they deal with the various battles and adventures fought during this epic war. ''Episode III: RevengeOfTheSith'' [[DoomedByCanon has already shown how the war will end]], but the series traces how events lead up to that conclusion as well as touching upon story threads that span from the distant past and to the original trilogy. The series was designed as an anthology format with AnachronicOrder as an intentional stylistic choice. Each season there is a [[HalfArcSeason loosely connected]] StoryArc (most two or three part episodes) while the "{{Filler}}" tends to jump around to any point in the timeline. This has resulted in some {{Story Arc}}s being told almost in reverse. As the series progressed, it shifted away from filler and more towards story arcs; to the point that Season 5 was composed of five four-part stories. The series was in production of a sixth season but was cancelled shortly after the Season 5 finale because of Disney's buyout of Lucasfilm, who wanted a tv show on their own network and did not want to invest in a ChannelHop for one starting to wrap up. The episodes in production were [[TheResolutionWillNotBeTelevised released as a Netflix exclusive]], with story arcs with completed scripts adapted into other mediums, with ''ComicBook/DarthMaulSonOfDathomir'' serving as a comic-book adaptation of a four-episode storyline and ''Literature/DarkDisciple'', starring Asajj Ventress and Quinlan Vos, was release on July 07th, 2015.

To date, this series [[EndOfAnAge is the final installment produced by George Lucas prior to selling the franchise to Disney, and brings the prequel era to a close after fifteen years]]. Because of Lucas' involvement, ''The Clone Wars'' is the only non-theatrical ''StarWars'' production to be considered as canon going into the Disney era. The follow up animated series ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsRebels'' takes place around 15 years later and carries some of the same production staff.
