In one respect I am a little disappointed. I was hoping to catch them each, individually, on TV. It was going to be an event. Now, much like Arrested Development, the upside is I can watch as many as I want without the wait. It is still a win for this fan of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Here is the official word from Star Wars.com on when the full series and “The Lost Missions” will arrive on Netflix. 

Press Release: Exclusive Licensing Agreement with The Disney/ABC Television Group Brings Star Wars Content to Netflix Streaming Members for the First Time

The Galactic Republic, Disney/ABC Television Group, Lucasfilm, and Netflix Inc. today announced the highly anticipated debut of the sixth and final season of the Emmy(r) Award-winning series Star Wars: The Clone Wars exclusively to Netflix members in the US and Canada on Friday, March 7. Accompanying the 13-episode new season dubbed "The Lost Missions" will be the entire Star Wars: The Clone Wars saga, which includes several director's cut episodes never seen on TV as well as the feature film. This multi-year agreement also makes Netflix the exclusive subscription service for the entire Star Wars: The Clone Wars series.

In these eagerly anticipated episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, some of the deepest mysteries of the conflict between the light and the dark sides of the Force are revealed. An intrepid clone trooper discovers a shocking secret, Anakin Skywalker's closest relationship is tested to its limits, and what Master Yoda discovers while investigating the disappearance of a Jedi could forever change the balance of power in the galaxy. Fans will not only be able to watch the thrilling finale, they'll be able to see more of Star Wars: The Clone Wars than ever before as Netflix will also stream the director's cut of seasons one to five.

"Stars Wars is one of the most iconic franchises of all time and this series joins a long line of Disney content that Netflix members are and will continue to enjoy for years to come," said Ted Sarandos, Netflix chief content officer. "The Clone Wars marks an important moment as Netflix welcomes more and more first-run content from The Walt Disney Company and its subsidiaries."

Star Wars: The Clone Wars is the first time any Star Wars content has been available for Netflix streaming members. The deal follows a recent announcement from Netflix and The Walt Disney Company to bring multiple original series based on Marvel characters to the service in 2015. Netflix will be the exclusive US subscription television service for first-run, live-action, and animated movies from the Walt Disney Studios including titles from Disney, Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar Animation Studios, Marvel Studios, Disneynature, and Lucasfilm beginning in 2016. Netflix members can currently enjoy a wide range of Disney, ABC Entertainment Group and Disney Channel films and TV shows across the 41 countries where Netflix operates.

Such great news! Can't wait!

Greta news. I was planning on waiting til the Marvel series dropped to join Netflix but I may have to do it sooner

Bob totally agree with you. Yeah the Netflix model is cool for some but there's something about the communal wait for each episode, the build up and anticipation amongst fans. The ability to discuss and dissect each individual episode as opposed to have them drop all at once and everybody watching at their own pace and leisure.

Happy to see this but I'm more of a blu-ray guy over Netflix. My worry is that it will take forever to be released on blu-ray as Netflix original series don't have a good release track record.

Agreed, I think only House of Cards has been released on Blu so far.  This is some bullshit, they better drop that thing on blu.

I'm okay with this.  Watched all of Fringe on Netflix and just started Breaking Bad, and I'm okay with the "Netflix model" because I am a busy, career man, and like to watch a couple of episodes in a row when I have some free time.  I don't have time for the long waits like we used to do in the pre-digital age and wind up just watching all my show on PVR anyways, long after the seasons are over.    I never found Clone Wars Seaons 1-5 "must watch" epsiodes anyways (I have seen all five seasons BTW).  Certainly nothing in the way of Breaking Bad, which I definitely could watch in one sitting if I had no life...

Been reading on some forums that Disney is really gung ho with this Netflix deal they made and will probably not release this on dvd/blu-ray to ensure viewership is limited on Netflix. Hope it's just a rumour.

Only House of Cards got the home video release but Orange is the New Black as recently announced so there is hope.

I'd be surprised if Disney doesn't release these on Blu-ray also. They are a business just like any other and the bottom line of any business is to increase its revenue. Sure you will have new subscriptions to Netflix that will generate a steady stream of revenue but there will still be audiences that for one reason or another will not be interested in a Netflix subscription so why not get some money out of their pockets by offering this final season on Blu-ray / DVD? After all, production cost is pretty low to produce the disc versions. So I wouldn't worry either way. Just my $0.02.

 True, Disney is a business, but Netflix is a business too.  I doubt Netflix would be interested in this deal if Disney was going to simultaneously drop this on Blu-ray.  Who's going to join Netflix to see this if they can go to Redbox and rent it for $1.50... besides If it gets released on blu ray...everybody will be streaming it (Vudu, Cinema Now, Amazon etc).  

Don't understand why people would be opposed to signing up with Netflix in order to see this.  What does it cost to stream movies on Netflix...$7 a month (I have Netflix, but I'm not sure, because they automatically deduct the cost from one of my credit cards).  For the cost of 3 or 4 blu-ray disks you can get Netflix for a whole year...watch Clone Wars and House of Cards, Orange is the New Black and Breaking Bad...on all your devices.  Streaming, downloading and cloud storage is the wave of the future. Disks are going to eventually go away.

 "Streaming, downloading and cloud storage is the wave of the future. Disks are going to eventually go away."

Not true, there will always be a market for owning items vs. getting them off a cloud. It may shift the balance of where money is spent but owning items will always be there. Oh, and thanks for telling me where I should spend my money.  Have to love the youth today, always willing to spend another persons money. You want to spend seven bucks a month more power to you but I'll spend my money elsewhere. I won't go off on a rant but you fail to see the appeal to mass audience that likes to own something.  I'm glad you are not in charge of marketing something.

If we do see this on bluray it won't be till 2015 to go with everything else that will be star wars.  Didn't it take a year for each season to come out on disc?

Ill wail for another way to watch them, it always comes up.
