Two years ago on March 7, 2014, the "bonus content" was released on Netflix as "The Lost Missions." These 13 episodes featured some of the best episodes of the series, and showed how the quality of the animation and storytelling continued to improve as the series went along.
Over the past two years via The Clone Wars Legacy, LucasFilm has released twenty more episodes in various formats. Eight episodes have been released as story reels, via StarWars.com. Four episodes were adapted into the comic mini-series "Star Wars: Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir." Eight episodes were adapted into the novel "Star Wars: Dark Disciple."
There are still dozens of stoires that remain untold. See the recent post "Approximately 36 Clone Wars Stories Remain Untold" for more details.
