The Bad Batch Release Info
Star Wars: The Bad Batch will debut on Disney + on May 4th, 2021, a date affectionately known as Star Wars Day amongst the franchise’s legion of fans. May the Fourth (Force) Be With You, for anyone out there who needs further explanation.
The second episode will release a few days later on Friday May 7th. All subsequent episodes will release on Fridays. The episode count for the first season is still unknown.
The Bad Batch follows Clone Force 99, a group of elite clone troopers with genetic mutations, on a series of mercenary missions following Order 66 and the Clone Wars. The group consists of members Wrecker, Tech, Crosshair, Echo, and its leader Hunter.
The series will also feature Fennec Shand, a character featured prominently in The Mandalorian, with actress Ming-Na Wen returning to voice the role. Based off the official trailer for the series, fans have heavily speculated that Commander Cody will be returning, this time leading an elite force of storm troopers for the Empire.
