Everyone's favorite wee!clone-turned-bounty hunter will show up in the new Star Wars television series.  IGN reports that producer Rick McCallum spoke with Star Wars Insider magazine and gave away a few choice tidbits about the upcoming TV series, the biggest of which is that Boba Fett will be a major part.

McCallum said, "The series will be about brand new characters, a group of people we haven't seen yet, except Boba Fett, who will be an instrumental part of it. The series will also showcase other bounty hunters.
"  The series will focus on "what happens to an empire. It's a much darker, much more character-based thing."  He says the series won't be as plot-driven as the films.

The hardest part for the team is making the series "look like a feature on a television budget, with all new characters, new environments, new planets, and trying to keep the storyline alive for a lot of people."

While McCallum said he hopes they'll have the scripts ready by the end of next month, there's no way right now to know how much the WGA strike will impact the feasibility of getting this show off the ground.  Since the goal seems to be the Fall 2009 season, at least they have a little breathing room.
