The good news? Two arcs have been planned for the "bonus" content. The bad news? Neither bring closure to the cartoon series.
Source: Noooooooo! Lucasfilm is canceling Clone Wars without revealing Ahsoka's fate
Earlier this month, we learned that Disney wouldn't be renewing the popular cartoon series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, that had aired on Cartoon Network for five seasons. Today, The Force.Net is reporting that the "bonus" content hinted at by Lucasfilm video from Clone Wars co-showrunner Dave Filoni, will be just two arcs (including the three part Clovis arc that was pushed to be in "season six").
After that NO NEW content will be made for the show. So those looking for any more finality to characters such as Rex, Ahoska Tano, or Assaj Ventress? You aren't going to be getting any closure. Darth Maul's fate? Sorry you're not going to get any details what happens next either.
If that blow wasn't enough, the site is additionally reporting that Lucasfilm itself (including the division that made the show, Lucasfilm Animation) is going to be downsized. The reason? Disney wants to prioritize Episode VII and Sequel-related work over anything else.
