Star Wars: The Clone Wars might have come to a glorious end, but the Bad Batch is still in action. The unique squad of clone troopers, which first appeared in the final season in February, will get their own Disney Plus show in 2021, the company revealed Monday.

Star Wars: The Bad Batch will be set after the Clone Wars and the events of Revenge of the Sith, and see the group acting as mercenaries as the era of the Galactic Empire begins. When we last saw them, they'd just gotten a new recruit in the form of cyborg clone Echo.

Clone Wars executive producer Dave Filoni will return for the new show, with Jennifer Corbett as head writer.

"Our partnership with the groundbreaking storytellers and artists at Lucasfilm Animation is only beginning," said Agnes Chu, senior vice president for content at Disney Plus. "We are thrilled to bring Dave Filoni's vision to life through the next adventures of the Bad Batch."

Presumably the excellent Dee Bradley Baker will also return to voice Echo, supertracker Hunter, the incredibly strong Wrecker, knowledgeable Tech and deadly sniper Crosshair. The actor's rep didn't respond to a request for comment.
