The Bad Batch Season 2 Trailer
The trailer is here. Yay for that! You can watch it right over here. According to the Disney+ press release, ‘The second season of “Star Wars: The Bad Batch” consists of 16 episodes and is set to premiere this fall exclusively on Disney+.’
The Bad Batch Season 2: What can we expect?
Disney+ has left a little hint in its press release. They said,’ Months have passed since the events on Kamino and the Bad Batch continue their journey navigating the Empire after the fall of the Republic. They will cross paths with friends and foes, both new and familiar, as they take on a variety of thrilling mercenary missions that will take them to unexpected and dangerous new places.’ Jennifer Corbett in the recent Star Wars: The Bad Batch Season 2 panel has confirmed that ‘some time has passed ‘ between the 2 seasons. She did share some more information which can bring on some spoilers. Hence we are refraining from it.
Apart from the storyline, The Bad Batch will have a new look and the clip itself gives out that. For instance, the Bad Batch’s armor has got some patchwork while Omega is sporting her own helmet. Brad Rau is definitely proud of this new innovation and it is evident in his words. He said in that same panel,’ We iterated on these characters to get that kit-bashed, worn-through feeling, which really mirrors where they’re at at this point, very early on in Season 2.’
When asked if Crosshair be redeemed, Rau teased with an even mysterious answer, ‘ Does he want to be redeemed right now? He’s a very interesting guy.’

- The Bad Batch (includes Hunter, Wrecker, Tech, Crosshair, and Echo; also known as the Clone 99) — Dee Bradley Baker
