Season Six to Netflix
THE unaired sixth season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars will begin on the streaming service Netflix on March 7, Mashable.com reports.
The first five seasons of the animated series aired on Cartoon Network. The previous season ended with one of the main characters, Anakin Skywalker’s padawan Ahsoka Tano, leaving the Jedi Order after feeling profoundly let down by her masters and going off to seek her own path.
There’s no mention of Ahsoka in the list of 13 Season Six episodes, which are grouped under the title The Lost Missions.
According to Netflix, the upcoming season will reveal “some of the deepest mysteries of the conflict between the Light and the Dark sides of the Force.”
Among the story arcs: an intrepid clone trooper cadet will discover a shocking secret; Anakin Skywalker’s closest relationship will be tested to its limits (we figure it’s because an old flame of Padme Amidala shows up); and Yoda’s investigation of a Jedi Master’s dis- appearance could forever change the balance of power in the galaxy.
The season will culminate in a multi-part tale with Yoda finding the origin of the Force and then journeying to Korriban, the ancient birthplace of the Sith.
darth Tyranus, aka Count dooku, will be among the villains in Season Six of TheCloneWars.
