Hardcore fans who aren't content with watching a few episodes here and there should know that there are two essential shows for Ahsoka's character:

The former is a seven-season series that follows Ahsoka from the beginning of her new life as Anakin's Padawan, up until the devastating Order 66.

While the show isn't only about Ahsoka, she's a central character, not only as Anakin's foil but also in her own right.

In the latter, Ahsoka isn't the main character but her arc is really important and it sets up the plot for her own show.

Optional additional series that feature Ahsoka include:

3) Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi

4) The Mandalorian

5) The Book of Boba Fett
