Star Wars: The Clone Wars will definitely be returning for a fifth season, it's been revealed...

Dave Filoni, supervising director of the animated Star Wars spin-off The Clone Wars, has confirmed that a fifth season will be coming our way.

Through Facebook, Filoni was discussing the return of Death Watch, a rather nasty splinter group of Mandalorian warriors, to the award-winning show's most recent episode. The Mandalorians first appeared in The Clone Wars back in season two  (Boba Fett wore Mandalorian armour, in case you didn't know). He told fans:

"I hope you all enjoy the episode tonight. I think the Death Watch has gotten significantly cooler, and we are going to build on that next season."

In an audacious piece of casting, Battlestar Gallactica's Katee Sackhoff (Starbuck) voices the deadly Bo-Katan in the aforementioned episode, A Friend In Need, which aired in the US on Friday. Filoni also explained that her character will return in the next season adding that a preview of what's to come will be shown at Celebration VI (the official Star Wars convention) in August.

Currently, there are no broadcast details for The Clone Wars season four in the UK after Sky Movies dropped it earlier this year.
