In a few weeks, Star Wars: The Clone Wars will return, but in an unlikely and unconventional form, airing its final season on Netflix. Starting at the beginning of March, all seasons of The Clone Wars (plus the feature film) will be available on Netflix to cap off the premiere of the sixth and final season of the popular animated series. Now the episode titles for all of season six’s 13 episodes are now available, along with a brief synopsis for each.
While the tail end of season five’s episodes played off of old Alfred Hitchcock movie titles, serving up “Sabotage” and “The Jedi Who Knew Too Much,” season six’s titles aren’t nearly as clever. Check out the episode titles below:

- Episode 02: Conspiracy
Clone Cadet Tup is undergoing a medical examination in the sterile laboratories of Kamino to find the motives for his shocking attack on the Jedi Master. For the examination to succeed, cadet Fives must enter the depth of Tup’s mind, where he finds a secret code manipulation in the cloning program of the Republic.

On Moriband, the homeworld of the Sith, the time has come for Yoda to pass his final test. Only then will he learn the best-kept secret of his order, but first a most powerful enemy awaits.
A few days ago, Lucasfilm released a trailer that featured the storylines and characters to feature in season six. While the final season will tie up Ahsoka’s exit from the Jedi Order storyline, it will also introduce the idea that Clonetroopers aren’t merely mindless replicas, but rather fully thinking individuals. Sadly, Jar-Jar Binks also makes an appearance.
Season six will also feature an epic showdown with the Sith and Darth Sidious’ Order 66 that will lead into Revenge of the Sith. The main element that will directly tie into the rest of the Star Wars saga is the “appearance” of Qui-Gon Jinn, and how the animated series relates to the end of Revenge of the Sith, which teased the ability for fallen Jedi Knights to “come back” as wise ghosts through the Force.
Once Clone Wars finally gets its proper send-off, the same production team will re-team for Star Wars: Rebels, which will premiere on the Disney Channel this fall. Rebels takes place between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, focusing on the origins of the Rebel Alliance against the Galactic Empire.
Star Wars: The Clone Wars will be available for streaming on Netflix Instant on March 7.
