NEW YORK -- The saga will continue.

Cartoon Network said Monday that it would carry a second season of "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" from LucasFilm Animation. The new season will begin in the fall.

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.

" 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' is like nothing else on television and has delivered for us on all levels. It has helped us launch a great new night of action-adventure on Fridays," said Stuart Snyder, president and COO of Turner Animation, Young Adults & Kids Media.
