‘Star Wars: The Bad Batch’ Renewed For Season 2 At Disney+
Disney+ proves you can’t keep a bad clone down, as the streaming service announces ‘Star Wars: The Bad Batch‘ will return for Season 2.
‘Star Wars: The Bad Batch’ follows the elite and experimental clones of the Bad Batch as they find their way in a rapidly changing galaxy in the immediate aftermath of the Clone War. Members of Bad Batch – a unique squad of clones who vary genetically from their brothers in the Clone Army – each possess a singular exceptional skill that makes them extraordinarily effective soldiers and a formidable crew.
“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,” commented the exec producer and god-like overseer of Star Wars animated series, Dave Filoni.
The series renewal doesn’t come as a huge surprise, given the amount of critical acclaim the show has been given. The adventures of “Clone Force 99”, who were first introduced in ‘The Clone Wars’ Season 7, with the addition of Omega, another young female clone, a uniquely unmodified replication of Jango Fett’s original template, continues the brilliant work of Filoni and his team from the epic ‘Clone Wars’ final season.
Hunter, Echo, Tech, and Wrecker (and any other clones) are voiced by Dee Bradley Baker, with Michelle Ang providing the voice of Omega. Other cast includes Rhea Perlman as Cid, with familiar guest voices from ‘The Clone Wars’ and ‘Rebels’ such as Stephen Stanton as Admiral Tarkin, Ming-Na Wen as Fennec Shand, Andrew Kishino as Saw Gerrera, and Corey Burton as Cad Bane.
The series 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’) and Jennifer Corbett (‘Star Wars Resistance’, ‘NCIS’) with Carrie Beck (‘The Mandalorian’, ‘Star Wars Rebels’) as co-executive producer and Josh Rimes as producer (‘Star Wars Resistance’). Rau is also serving as supervising director with Corbett as head writer.
Part 1 of the two-part finale of Season 1 of ‘Star Wars: The Bad Batch‘ will be available to stream tomorrow on Disney+ UK.
