The Clone Wars

The first season of Star Wars: The Bad Batch consists of sixteen episodes. It debuted with "Aftermath", a special 70-minute premiere, on May 4, 2021 on Disney+, and concluded with "Kamino Lost" on August 13, 2021.


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.


On July 13, 2020, announced an all-new animated series set to debut on Disney+ in 2021 titled Star Wars: The Bad Batch. On December 10, 2020, the official Star Wars YouTube channel released a sizzle reel for the series, alongside announcements of several other Star Wars TV series airing on Disney+.
