- "I've written, like, twelve, sixteen [episodes] now? Because we're three years ahead of you guys. We've already written Season Six."
- ―Christian Taylor, in September 2011
The sixth season of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series was in production as of October 2012, when Series Supervising Director Dave Filoni confirmed that his crew had begun working on scripts and designs for the season in Star Wars Insider 137. Prior to that announcement, then-head writer Christian Taylor stated in September 2011 that they had already written through Season Six. In 2013, the television series was pulled from Cartoon Network after airing its fifth season, making Season Five the final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
Release after cancellation
It was announced on March 11, 2013 that active production on future episodes for Cartoon Network had ceased, but that the studio was continuing production on as yet unreleased story arcs. Since then, clips have been shown from episodes that would have been part of Season Six and will still be released, despite the series being pulled from Cartoon Network. At Celebration Europe II, Filoni, during the panel "Secrets of Star Wars: The Clone Wars," implied the small possibility that Season Six might end up being shown on television in the future.
On October 11, 2013, Filoni announced that his crew had completed production on the remaining The Clone Wars episodes and that they will be released in early 2014. The medium through which they will be released has yet to be specified.
