The sixth and final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars will be available exclusively on Netflix in the US and Canada starting March 7th. Netflix is also gaining streaming rights to all previous seasons as part of a newly announced deal with Disney/ABC. This marks the first time Star Wars content has been part of the company's instant streaming catalog. The Clone Wars ran for five seasons on cable before it was unceremoniously canceled when Disney bought out Lucasfilm.

But production on a sixth season was already underway, and Lucasfilm vowed that it would see the light of day — just not on TV. The 13-episode final season has been titled The Lost Missions and promises to answer "some of the deepest mysteries of the conflict between the light and the dark sides of the Force." Netflix is your only option in North America, but as Re/code notes, German viewers will be able to see it on SuperRTL as early as this weekend. Late last year, Netflix and Disney announced a partnership that will bring four original superhero shows based in the Marvel universe to the streaming service.
