On January 16, 2014, the German television network Super RTL announced their plans to air these episodes as a sixth season, which consisted of 13 episodes. Season 6, along with the other seasons and the feature film, were made available on Netflix on March 7, 2014.

While the series is designed to be an anthology of both standalone episodes and small story arcs, various events throughout inform stories, characters, and relationships to create a recognizably continuous narrative. On March 17, 2014, in recognition of the release of the complete series on Netflix, StarWars.com released the official chronological episode order for the first six seasons; this was later updated to include links to the episodes on Disney+. Regarding the seventh and final season, StarWars.com revealed that episodes five through eight are set before the season premiere "The Bad Batch".
At the time of cancellation in March 2013, there were still many episodes in development. Thirteen of these episodes were finished to become part of Season 6: The Lost Missions but there were still additional arcs that were never released. In September 2014, Lucasfilm released details of multiple story arcs from the unfinished episodes.The Bad Batch was eventually completed and aired as the first arc of season 7.
A four-episode arc continued the story of Darth Maul following the events of the season 5 episode "The Lawless". The four episodes were titled: "The Enemy of My Enemy", "A Tale of Two Apprentices", "Proxy War", and "Showdown on Dathomir" (original production codes: 6.21-6.24). According to Dave Filoni, the four scripts "came out of one of our story conferences with George Lucas". The scripts and designs for the arc were adapted into a four-issue comic book titled Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir, released in August 2014 by the publisher Dark Horse Comics. The comic was the last Star Wars comic published by Dark Horse before Lucasfilm transferred the license to Marvel Comics in 2014 and was collected into a trade paperback by Marvel in 2018.
The plot follows Darth Maul, who has been captured by Darth Sidious. He is tortured by Count Dooku for information about the Shadow Collective and the allies Maul has made. Maul escapes and heads to Zanbar to command the Death Watch army, but is followed by General Grievous and his droids. They battle Maul and the Mandalorians, who are soon overwhelmed by the droids. Maul flees and confers with Mother Talzin, who is revealed to be his biological mother, and plots to draw out Sidious by capturing Dooku and Grievous. The scheme works, and Talzin is able to restore herself to her physical form, but sacrifices herself to save Maul and is killed by Grievous. Although Maul escapes with a company of loyal Mandalorians, the Shadow Collective has fallen apart due to the conflict with Sidious, as the Hutts, Pykes, and Black Sun have all abandoned Maul.
An eight-episode arc with Asajj Ventress and Jedi Quinlan Vos was adapted into a novel by Christie Golden titled Dark Disciple, released on July 7, 2015. The eight episodes were titled: "Lethal Alliance", "The Mission", "Conspirators", "Dark Disciple", "Saving Vos, Part I", "Saving Vos, Part II", "Traitor", and "The Path" (original production codes: 6.13-6.16 and 7.05-7.08). The story follows Vos partnering up with Ventress, hoping to execute Count Dooku. Eric Goldman of IGN gave the book an 8 out of 10, saying it was great.
In September 2014, four unfinished episodes were released in completed story reel format, titled: "A Death on Utapau," "In Search of the Crystal," "Crystal Crisis," and "The Big Bang" (original production codes: 6.01-6.04). The arc takes place on Utapau with Obi-Wan and Anakin investigating an arms deal involving the Separatists and a kyber crystal. The arc also deals with Anakin's feelings after Ahsoka left the Jedi Order. It was included in the season 6 Blu-ray.
The story reels for this four-episode arc were screened on April 17, 2015, at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, and were released on the official Star Wars website on April 29, 2015. Scripted by Brent Friedman, the four episodes were later completed and aired as the first arc of season 7 (with some changes from the original story reels). On July 13, 2020, a spin-off sequel series titled Star Wars: The Bad Batch was announced; it will follow the titular group of clones working as mercenaries in the immediate aftermath of the Clone War.
