Disney+ has announced that it gave a green light for the second season of Star Wars: The Bad Batch before its culminating episode that will happen next week.

What is The Bad Batch?

Straits times

The Star Wars: Bad Batch came out of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, chronicling the adventures of a group of clone troopers, each has unique defects and mutations that provide them with skill sets that set them apart from other clone troopers.

The series debuted in May, and its plot revolved around the time after the events of the series finale of The Clone Wars with clone troopers executing Order 66.

The titular Bad Batch, who were freed from their clone programming, fell victim to infighting and finally decided to rise up against the Empire. One of the Bad Batch, Crosshair, joined the Empire and chased the group throughout Season One.

The series chronicles the escapade of the team as they encounter familiar characters dispersed throughout the galaxy; they are accompanied by their new member, Omega.

While The Bad Batch hasn’t been as interesting week to week as we’d hoped, it’s still good stuff for Star Wars fans to feast on until Disney+ releases bigger live-action miniseries like The Book of Boba Fett, The Mandalorian Season Three, Andor, and Obi-Wan Kenobi.

What We Know So Far

So far, we know that The Book of Boba Fett will be released in December 2021 and that Season 3 of The Mandalorian will be released in 2022. While the latter’s release date is unknown, filming has yet to begin, so we expect it to be in the second part of the year.

As a result, it’s possible that The Bad Batch will air between these two series, with a Spring/Summer 2022 release date in sight.

The Cast and Crew Returning

As of writing, there is no official announcement yet about who of the cast and crew members will be returning for the second season. Although, we expected that Dee Bradley Baker would come back to voice the squad composed of Crosshair, Tech, Wrecker, Hunter, and Echo. Michelle Ang who voiced Omega is also expected to come back depending on the finale of the series which is set to release next week.

Jennifer Corbett served as executive producer and head writer for the first season, with Brad Rau as supervisory director and executive producer, Josh Rimes as producer, Dave Filoni and Athena Portillo as executive producers, Carrie Beck as co-executive producer, and Lucasfilm as the production company. The first season was scored by Kevin Kiner.

Season Two Plot

There is no definite announcement of the plot yet for the second season of The Bad Batch as the series is still ongoing and the finale hasn’t been released yet. At this point, we will definitely have a clearer prediction of what might be the story of the second season after the season 1 finale which will premiere on August 13, 2021.

Star Wars fans will definitely love season 2 like their reactions in the first season. The Bad Batch series has received positive reviews from critics and it is one of the few animated series that are popular on the platform. Along with the Star Wars contents, the platform will also debut the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first animation series, What If…?
