    Star Wars: The Bad Batch Renewed for a Second Season Ahead of Finale
    Disney+ has officially renewed Lucasfilm's latest sci-fi animated
    series Star Wars: The Bad Batch for a second season, which has been
    slated to debut in 2022. The early renewal comes ahead of the first
    season's upcoming two-part finale, with the first part premiering
    tonight at midnight (PT), exclusively on Disney+.

    "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+," President of
    Disney+ and ESPN+, Michael Paull said in a statement. "As the
    dedicated streaming home for the Star Wars franchise, we can't wait
    for the second season of this fan-favorite animated series."

    Executive producer Dave Filoni added, "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."

    Star Wars: The Bad Batch features the voices of Dee Bradley Baker
    as the clone troopers and Ming-Na Wen, who is reprising her as
    Fennec Shand, a character who was first introduced in
    The Mandalorian. Joining them are Archie Panjabi, Michelle Ang,
    Bobby Moynihan, Freddie Prinze Jr., Sian Clifford, Taran Killiam,
    Seth Green, and many more.

    The series follows the elite and experimental clones of the Bad
    Batch (first introduced in 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. 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 which makes them extraordinarily effective
    soldiers and a formidable crew. In the post-Clone War era, they
    will take on daring mercenary missions as they struggle to stay
    afloat and find new purpose.

    Star Wars: The Bad Batch hails from executive producer Dave
    Filoni, who has been an integral force in the Star Wars universe
    this past decade due to his incredible work in Star Wars animated
    shows such as The Clone Wars, Rebels, and Stars Wars Resistance
    as well as in the live-action prequel series The Mandalorian.

    The series is executive produced by Athena Portillo, Brad Rau, 
    and Jennifer Corbett, and Carrie Beck, with Josh Rimes set as a
    producer. Rau is also serving as a supervising director with
    Corbett as head writer.
