Star Wars: The Bad Batch is an animated series from Lucasfilm that serves as both a sequel to and spin-off of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. The first season will consist of sixteen episodes. It debuted with "Aftermath", a special 70-minute premiere, on May 4, 2021 on Disney+.
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.
