The clone trooper-centric CGI animated series is coming back next year.

The Bad Batch meet Omega

At least some of the Bad Batch will return in season 2.


As Star Wars: The Bad Batch gears up for the two-part season finale kicking off on Disney Plus on Friday, Disney revealed that the CGI animated series will return to the streaming service for a second season in 2022.

The show follows a squad of genetically enhanced clone troopers who debuted in the final season of The Clone Wars. They defy the Galactic Empire and become mercenaries following the events of Revenge of the Sith, running into rogues like bounty hunter Fennec Shand (as seen in The Mandalorian) and figuring out their place in a changed galaxy.

"The entire Lucasfilm Animation team and I would like to thank Disney Plus and our fans for the opportunity to continue telling the story of the Bad Batch," executive producer Dave Filoni said in a release.
