Even though the Clone Wars are over, Clone Troopers are still very important in that faraway galaxy. In season 2 of The Bad Batch, the adventures of Clone Force 99 will continue.
Clone Force 99 is a group of mismatched troopers genetically engineered to have traits that make them better soldiers. Even though it took a while for the first 16 episodes to figure out what they were for, the show eventually found its place in the Star Wars universe.
This could have significant consequences for The Mandalorian. Hunter, Tech, Wrecker, Echo, Crosshair, and Omega, a young sidekick, will try to find their place in a universe where the newly formed Empire is starting to throw its weight around in season 2 of “The Bad Batch.”
So, now that we know the show will be back on January 4, 2023, we've sent our troopers on a covert mission to tell you everything you need to know about The Bad Batch season 2, including when it will come out, what it will be about, who will be in it, and more. Season 1 spoilers are coming up.
The Bad Batch Season 2: Storyline
The Martez sisters first appeared in The Clone Wars, so their appearance in season 1 was a vital sign that they were part of some kind of resistance movement. Their contact looked a lot like Bail Organa, the leader of the Rebel Alliance and Leia's adopted father.
(However, we know from Star Wars Rebels and Andor that the Alliance won't come together for more than a decade, so there's a limit to how important the Bad Batch can be in its formation.)
We also think that season 2 of The Bad Batch will tell us more about Omega, the unique female clone of Jango Fett who is traveling with Hunter, Tech, Wrecker, and Echo. Even though she is still a child, she is older than the members of Clone Force 99.
Like their Clone brothers, the Kaminoans sped up their growth. Omega knows that the Batch was made with “desirable” genetic changes to make them better soldiers. She also knows that she still has much to learn about her past.
We can also expect to learn more about what happens to the Clones after the Empire makes them stop working. “We won't let that storyline go untalked about, that's for sure,” said Rau.
The trailer shows that Clone Troopers Rex and Gregor, who were in season 1, will be back for more Bad Batch action. Commander Cody, who fought with Obi-Wan Kenobi in Revenge of the Sith, will also show up.
The Bad Batch Season 2: Release Date
On August 5, 2021, just before the two-part season 1 finale, Disney Plus confirmed (via StarWars.com) that the show will return. For a long time, it seemed like The Bad Batch season 2 would come out this year.
The trailer debuted at the Star Wars Celebration in May and hinted at a “Fall 2022″ release date, which was later set for September 28, 2022. We discovered that the wait would be a little longer at Disney's D23 event in September.
Dave Filoni, who made The Bad Batch and is in charge of Ahsoka, told Deadline that the second season of The Bad Batch will come out on January 4, 2023. The first two episodes of the new season will be shown together for the first time on Disney Plus.
The Bad Batch Season 2: Cast
Dee Bradley Baker is back to voice the main characters Hunter, Tech, Wrecker, Echo, Crosshair, and any other clones they might meet. Michelle Ang will be back as Omega, and Rhea Perlman will be back as Cid.
The Bad Batch Season 2 Trailer
In May 2022, at the Star Wars Celebration, the first actual trailer for The Bad Batch season 2 came out. It shows that a lot of time has passed since the end of season 1 (Omega's hair is longer, and Clone Force 99 has better armor), and it also hints at a few essential plot points for the new season.
We'll talk about those in the next section of the story. Star Wars fans can also see Commander Cody, a character from Revenge of the Sith, Clone Commandos, and Gungi, a Wookiee Padawan who first appeared in The Clone Wars episode “The Gathering.”
