Star Wars: The Bad Batch will be back in 2022, as Disney+ has announced its fan favorite CG animated series, about a genetically mutated group of mercenaries, will return for a second season of soldiering next year.
“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.”
Series executive producer Dave Filoni commented, “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.”
The Bad Batch is set after the events of Revenge of the Sith and follows the missions of a squad of clone troopers that were first introduced in the final season of The Clone Wars. These genetically mutated mercenaries are voiced by Dee Bradley Baker (Captain Rex, Clone troopers), Ming-Na Wen (as a younger version of Fennec Shand, reprising the character she plays in The Mandalorian), Stephen Stanton (Admiral Tarkin) and Andrew Kishino (Saw Gerrera).
