Best Viewing Order For Star Wars: The Clone Wars

By
The Clone Wars

First airing in 2008, the Star Wars animated series The Clone Wars has become one of the most beloved parts of the franchise’s canon. Set between the second and third of the prequel movies, the show gives fans a better look at the events that took place during the fabled war.

The show aired for six seasons, one each year until 2014, at which point it took a long hiatus before returning for its conclusion. In 2020 with the launch of Disney Plus, fans finally got their conclusion to the story with the final season consisting of 12 episodes airing between February and May.

If you’ve yet to check out the show and are planning to dive into it now, there is actually a better way to follow along with the story than to jump in from the very first season.
