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.
