Good news for Star Wars fans, the Cartoon Network has announced it is giving the go-ahead for a second season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

The CG-animated series has been a ratings blockbuster for Cartoon Net. It scored the most-watched premiere for a series in the network’s history when it debuted Oct. 3, and has won its 9 p.m. Friday time period among boy demographics ever since. “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” will conclude its first season on Friday, March 20.

While I understand the reason behind having season breaks, there is a lot of money tied up in Star Wars related material.  Considering George Lucas wants this series to run five years, the company might be able to capitalize by extending these seasons to 40 plus episodes per season.

    My five-year-old will be incredibly excited. My wife, however, will not.
