No doubt Disney will reward the show by not airing the final episodes and pretending the show never existed.
CW had a good run. Not many recent animated shows in America can claim they had made 108 episodes.

Re: Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Five News and Discussion

That's ten more than Enterprise had, and one more season than the Trek series got from its network. I'd have let CW run for one more year to tie up more loose ends and give certain characters more proper resolutions and sendoffs in the buildup to the Jedi Purge and the birth of the Empire, but whaddya gonna do.

The fans don't run shows, the producers and the networks do. 108 episodes isn't too shabby for any series (animated or otherwise) set in the depths of outer space. Not that many in television history have outdone that.

TMNT 2003 would probably hold the record with seven seasons / 156 episodes + one movie

Other than shows that have been running since the 90s, Simpsons, South Park etc

You do realize that the EU is probably going to get flushed in 2015 by Episode VII considering way less people read the tie-ins than will likely see that movie, right?

I expect the EU to be turned into an alternate universe when EPVII is released. That way the hundreds of books/comics that fans have read/bought will still "count", but it won't interfere whatever plans they have for the SW universe after EPVII.

Has Star Wars ever used the concepts of time travel and parallel universes before? I know there have been some What If?-type stories, Star Wars Infinities or something, exploring hypothetical alternate outcomes of the movies, but were those intended as events that "actually" happened in other branches of the multiverse or just as "imaginary stories"?

I don't understand how that has anything to do with what I said.

Because every time you complain about The Clone Wars its basically about how it doesn't respect the EU enough or something.

It's surprising how rarely SW has done anything involving time travel, since it's usually such a staple of the genre.

And they don't seem to have done anything with alternate/parallel timelines per se. All the Infinities-type stuff seems to be presented merely as "imaginary stories." So it doesn't seem there's any precedent for the idea of the extant EU being declared a "real" parallel branch of the multiverse.
