The Star Wars saga ends again ... this time with the final season of Clone Wars

Ahsoka, sweetheart, you’re doing so well

If the end of one Star Wars saga didn’t sate you, don’t worry: there’s another Star Wars saga wrapping up next month.

The final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars premieres on Disney Plus on Feb. 21. Like other Disney Plus shows, the episodes will drop weekly. The seventh season is set to have 12 episodes.

The animated show takes place in the time between Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, originally focusing on Anakin Skywalker and his padawan Ahsoka, but eventually expanding to a whole cast of characters, including the clones themselves. Clone Wars aired on Cartoon Network starting in 2008 and soon became incredibly popular. In 2013, though, Cartoon Network decided to “wind down” the series in order to focus on sequel series Star Wars: Rebels. Eventually the show moved to Netflix, where the sixth season premiered.

Disney announced that a seventh, final season was in the works during 2018 San Diego Comic-Con. The trailer focuses primarily on Ahsoka, as she turns away from the path of a Jedi, now disillusioned with the war. Plenty of other characters — both exclusive to the show and not — appear, but the final face-off is with Darth Maul himself. Dun, dun, dun.

First-time viewers can check out the original six seasons of Star Wars: The Clone Wars on Disney Plus. See the official final season poster below.
