The new spin-off series “Star Wars: The Bad Batch” is coming to us in 2021 and follows the success of the animated series “Star Wars: The Clone Wars”. We are thrilled to have a new animated Star Wars show to watch and are gathering as much information as we can about this series. Here’s what we know so far.
First seen in The Clone Wars, this show follows the elite and experimental clones of The Bad Batch as they find their way in a changing galaxy around them. This batch is a squad of clones who vary genetically from the Clone Army. In the post-Clone War era, they will take on daring mercenary missions as they struggle to stay afloat and find new purpose.
Currently we don’t know how many episodes there will be, but we know we hope lots.
