15Star Wars: The Clone Wars
George Lucas’ Star Wars empire has trickled into an expanded universe since the original trilogy, and it continues to spawn new stories in various mediums. For those fans who are fully invested in the world of
Star Wars, new additions are viewed with the utmost scrutiny. Despite this fact, The Clone Wars—an animated series originally airing on Cartoon Network—has become a fan favorite.
Upon its premiere, the show brought in almost four million viewers, and for good reason. Taking place between Episodes I and II, the series features a number of beloved characters like Obi-Wan, Anakin, Yoda, Darth Maul, and Ashoka. Aside from the familiar CGI faces, The Clone Wars is also surprisingly engaging for an animated series, with excellent writing and story development.
While it was reported back in February that the animated series would be leaving in early March, The Clone Wars has stuck around for an additional three months. Now it appears that the show’s up for renewal again, although it’s unlikely it’ll get saved a second time. You better binge it, just to be safe.
