We'll be seeing more of the rogue Mandalorians from tonight's episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars in the series' next season, supervising director Dave Filoni confirmed via Facebook. Filoni's latest note to fans, which includes a character sketch of Katee Sackhoff's Death Watch lieutenant, Bo-Katan, also contains these little tidbits:
I decided to leave her helmet on [for A Friend In Need, airing tonight] and do a more developed, expressive face in season five. So, for a little sneak peak at what?s to come, I did this quick illustration for all of you. It gives you a glimpse of her face, and who knows, if you can make it to Celebration 6 in Orlando you might get to see more Death Watch action than ever before.
So there we go. Not only will Sackhoff's character and her fellow Death Watchers be back next season, but we'll probably get a very interesting preview of their return at Celebration VI. If you can't make it to the convention, count on us for coverage of this and other information about The Clone Wars Season 5.
