"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. City of Blades by Robert Jackson Bennett...
In our latest Rebels Report podcast we interviewed The Clone Wars writer Brent Friedman who worked on four seasons on the show only two of which have aired as seasons four and five.
Brent revealed that they had completed writing on seasons six and seven including a series finale story arc. He went on to say that there were enough episodes written that the show could have also included an eighth season.
According to Brent the season 7 finale arc was hotly debated in the writers room. Just how was the series going to end is a question that fans may not ever get the answer to.
While it doesn’t seem likely that they will ever revisit the series in the animated form after the bonus content is released I would love to see them release novelizations of these unaired story arcs, a “Making of” book by J.W. Rinzler or even a compilation book of the un-aired scripts.
