13 episodes for the 6th and final season head to Netflix starting March 7
Netflix has announced some good news for fans of the Star Wars franchise. Netflix says that it has signed a licensing agreement with Disney/ABC TV group that will see Star Wars content coming to the streaming network for the first time.
The agreement will make fans of the animated Star Wars: The Clone Wars series very happy. Netflix will be the exclusive place to see the sixth and final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars dubbed The Lost Missions starting on March 7. The final season will have 13-spisodes. Whether all 13 episodes will be offered at once is unknown.
Along with the final season of the animated show, Netflix will also become the exclusive streaming destination for the past seasons of the show. That past season content will include Director's Cut episodes not seen on TV and a full length feature film.
"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."
I hope that the deal for The Clone Wars opens the door for more Star Wars series. I would love to think that the long rumored Star Wars live action TV series might someday wind up on Netflix as an exclusive. Netflix has already tipped that it will be getting original shows based on Marvel characters.
