Star Wars: The Bad Batch follows the elite and experimental clones of The Bad Batch as they find their way in a rapidly changing galaxy in the immediate aftermath of the Clone War. The first part of the two-part season finale is set to stream on Disney+ at midnight, but we’ve got more clone adventures to look forward to as Disney has announced that they have renewed the series for a second season which will launch in 2022.
“Fans have enthusiastically embraced the action and drama of Star Wars: The Bad Batch and we are excited to see the Star Wars animated universe continue to expand on Disney+,” said Michael Paull, President of Disney+ and ESPN+. “As the dedicated streaming home for the Star Wars franchise, we can’t wait for the second season of this fan-favorite animated series.” The Bad Batch creator and executive producer Dave Filoni added, “The entire Lucasfilm Animation team and I would like to thank Disney+ and our fans for the opportunity to continue telling the story of the Bad Batch.” I’m not completely up to date on the first season, but I have enjoyed what The Bad Batch has had to offer so far and I’m excited to see what their future brings.
“During the creation of the clone army, the Kaminoans made genetic experiments in an attempt to create super soldiers,” reads the official StarWars.com description of the Bad Batch. “While the plan never quite worked, four of those experiments came to form Clone Force 99, or, as they called themselves, the Bad Batch. The Bad Batch were indeed an elite group, though their methods were somewhat unorthodox. The team’s clones were wildly different from each other, with unique personalities and body types: Hunter, the stoic and strong leader; Wrecker, the hot-headed brute; Tech, the intellectual and strategist; and Crosshair, the fast, deadly master of close-quarters combat.“
