Cartoon Network could soon be losing one of its highest rated shows following Disney's purchase of Lucasfilm. "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" has been a consistently solid performer ever since it premiered in 2008, but now it will likely be leaving the network at the end of its 2013 season.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cartoon Network and Lucasfilm make deals to renew "The Clone Wars" on a yearly basis. Thus, the spinoff cartoon is only set to run through the end of the 2012-2013 season. Representatives for both Lucasfilm and Cartoon Network said a decision about where "The Clone Wars" will end up won't be made until closer to the send of season 5 in 2013.
During a conference call Wednesday, Disney CEO Bob Iger admitted that Disney Xd would be a great home for a "Star Wars" show, though he didn't specifically cite "The Clone Wars" as the one that could end up there. »
