The Star Wars franchise has spawned multiple television series. Two animated series were released in the mid-1980s. Further animated series began to be released in the 2000s, the first two of which focused on the prequel trilogy-era Clone Wars. After Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm, only The Clone Wars was kept in the canon of continuity of the episodic Star Wars films. Two additional half-hour animated series were created: Rebels, which ties into the original trilogy, and Resistance, which ties into the sequel trilogy. An additional series spun off from The Clone Wars, titled The Bad Batch, debuted on Disney+ in 2021.
The first live-action series in the franchise, The Mandalorian, premiered in November 2019.
