The first season of the animated series has introduced a number of exciting characters, new and old. From first-generation female Jango Fett clone, Omega (Michelle Ang) — who is changing the face of cloning as we know it in the Star Wars franchise — to the return of Clone Wars fan-favorites like Captain Rex (Dee Bradley Baker) and bounty hunter Cad Bane (Corey Burton), The Bad Batch has enriched the Star Wars story throughout its first season.

Set directly after the execution of Sheev Palpatine’s Order 66 directive, The Bad Batch is diving into a previously unexplored era within the Star Wars timeline — the weeks and months during which the shift from Republic to Galactic Empire took hold across the galaxy.

Fans are excited about the news, sharing their reactions to the Star Wars Tweet.

Valentijn058 is hoping (perhaps too optimistically) that The Bad Batch finale follows what Filoni and Jon Favreau’s The Mandalorian Season 2 finale episode did with the surprise announcement of Ming-Na Wen and Temuera Morrison’s The Book of Boba Fett:

I think we get another animated show this year about Captain Rex tbh. They show would be called REX. They are going to announce it at the finale episode of the bad batch. @disneyplus @starwars if i am right, DM me

At this time, we don’t know for sure when The Bad Batch Season 2 will be set, but if it follows The Mandalorian‘s precedent, not much time will pass between the first and second seasons.

Are you glad The Bad Batch is coming back for Season 2?
