The animated series follows the Bad Batch clones and Omega, a mysterious clone who escaped the Empire with Clone Force 99. “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,” states the series description. The Bad Batch clones were first introduced in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and the storyline takes place after the turbulent aftermath of the Clone War.
“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,” said executive producer Dave Filoni in a press release.
Season one’s two-part finale is set to begin tomorrow, with the previous episodes now streaming on Disney+.
