"Giving new and existing fans the final chapter of Star Wars: The Clone Wars has been our honor at Disney+, and we are overjoyed by the global response to this landmark series. 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."
―Agnes Chu announcing The Bad Batch[src]

Star Wars: The Bad Batch is an animated television series that acts as both a sequel to and a spin-off of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. It will focus on the group known as Clone Force 99. It was announced on July 13, 2020 and premiered on Disney+ on May 4, 2021.[1] The first season will have sixteen episodes[2], and its musical score was composed by Kevin Kiner, who previously worked on Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels.[10]

Official description

The series follows the elite and experimental clones of the Bad Batch (first introduced in The Clone Wars) 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.[1]


"During our first year on Disney+, our animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, saw tremendous success with its epic seventh and final season. Building on the legacy of The Clone Wars, our new animated series The Bad Batch, follows the specialist commandos of Clone Force 99 as they embark on new missions in a rapidly changing galaxy."
―Kathleen Kennedy, on The Bad Batch during the Disney Investor Day 2020[src]

The series was announced on July 13, 2020, along with the producers and writers attached to the show.[1] The first trailer was unveiled at a Disney investors presentation on December 10, 2020.[11] A second trailer was released on March 30, 2021.[12]
