The first look at Season 2 of the Star Wars animated series The Bad Batch came through a trailer released at Star Wars Celebration and while it came with a Fall 2022 placeholder, no firm release date was given. One Take News has come across a date and it looks like it’s coming a little sooner than most expected.
According to the report, the next round of adventures for Clone Force 99 will kick off on September 28th. It seems that a listing on Disney+ has included a banner with a release date.
The new season looks to take place after a bit of a time jump from the end of Season 1, as Omega has aged up a bit and the gang is sporting new grey and orange armor. The trailer also revealed that Gungi, a fan-favorite Wookie Jedi from The Clone Wars animated series, will be part of Season 2, leading to some pretty fun theories about what might go down.
A September release for The Bad Batch means that Lucasfilm will have two Star Wars properties streaming simultaneously, with the 12-episode first season of Andor scheduled for a two-episode debut on August 31st. In addition, Marvel Studios will also be streaming She-Hulk during the same window, giving fans plenty of content to consume.
