Fans of Star Wars animation recently got confirmation that The Bad Batch is getting another season. Lucasfilm took to Twitter simply to say that season two is indeed on the way, and we can expect to see it premiere sometime in 2022.
The season-one finale, “Kamino Lost,” featured an undersea struggle for survival, with Squad 99 and their wayward brother Crosshair working together, as the ruins of Tipoca City sank beneath the waves. All told, the show’s off to a great start, having delivered the best inaugural season in the history of animated Star Wars—as gorgeous as Resistance and as charming as Rebels.
Look for Bad Batch season two sometime in the second half of next year.

What’s ‘The Bad Batch’ about?
The Bad Batch follows a squad of misfit clone troopers in the wake of Order 66. Throughout the course of the first season, they watch enlisted soldiers gradually replace their clone brothers as the galaxy falls to the tyranny of the Empire. They take on mercenary work for a Trandoshan named Cid; they have run-ins with some of the most ruthless bounty hunters in the Guild; they aid the fledgling rebellions on Ryloth and elsewhere. The show brings in familiar faces from The Clone Wars, Rebels, The Mandalorian, and so on—but it does a good job of maintaining focus.
Hunter, Wrecker, Echo and Tech are the remaining members of the Batch after their brother, Crosshair, sided with the Empire when Order 66 struck Kaller. Back home on Kamino, they rescue an adolescent clone named Omega—an unaltered clone of Jango Fett, like Boba, who happens to be female. She often acts as the squad’s conscience as they navigate a dark time marked by oppression and uncertainty all across the galaxy.
