It’s been nearly 6 months since The Clone Wars came to an end, but it appears that the story is far from over in the galaxy far, far away.
Today, it was announced that Disney+ has just ordered a brand new series, titled Star Wars: The Bad Batch, and it’s set to debut on the streaming service in 2021.
The series will follow the elite group of experimental clones known as the titular “Bad Batch” – first introduced in The Clone Wars – as they try to navigate a post-Clone War galaxy. Each member of the team possesses a unique and particularly exceptional skill that will help as they take on various dangerous missions throughout the series. Their goal will not only be to survive but to find a new purpose.

“While The Clone Wars may have come to its conclusion, our partnership with the groundbreaking storytellers and artists at Lucasfilm Animation is only beginning. We are thrilled to bring Dave Filoni’s vision to life through the next adventures of the Bad Batch.,” said Senior Vice President of Disney+ Content, Agnes Chu.
It goes without saying that this new series will also be produced by Filoni.
While it hasn’t been directly stated, it appears that the show will also be a spin-off, considering its connection to the existing canonical events and characters.
