The Bad Batch Season 2 Announced For 2022, Two-Part Season 1 Finale Begins Tomorrow

Lucasfilm has announced today via their various social media accounts on Twitter and via this post on StarWars.com that Season 2 of The Bad Batch animated series is officially a go for Disney+ sometime in 2022! Tomorrow will see the beginning of the two-part finale for the debut season which will undoubtedly leave us wanting more of the adventures of Clone Force 99 in Season 2 and beyond.

Series writer Jennifer Corbett and director Brad Rau confirmed back in May that Season 1 would include a total of 16 episodes and while they wouldn’t comment on the possibility of future seasons of The Bad Batch, they didn’t shut the door completely on the topic either.

Check out the announcement copied below along with a teaser for Season 2’s arrival embedded beneath it!

Clone Force 99 will return for another mission.

Today, Disney+ announced the second season of the critically-acclaimed animated series Star Wars: The Bad Batch, 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 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,” added executive producer Dave Filoni.

Star Wars: The Bad Batch follows the elite and experimental clones of the Bad Batch (first introduced in Star Wars: The Clone Wars) — and their young charge, Omega — as they find their way in a rapidly changing galaxy in the immediate aftermath of the Clone War. Star Wars: The Bad Batch is executive produced by Dave Filoni (The Mandalorian, Star Wars: The Clone Wars), Athena Portillo (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels), Brad Rau (Star Wars Rebels, Star Wars Resistance), Jennifer Corbett (Star Wars Resistance, NCIS), and Carrie Beck (The Mandalorian, Star Wars Rebels), with Josh Rimes (Star Wars Resistance) and Alex Spotswood (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels) serving as producers. Rau is also the supervising director, and Corbett serves as head writer.
