The Clone Wars may have ended for good, but more animated Star Wars is on the way. Lucasfilm has revealed that Star Wars: The Bad Batch, a brand-new animated series, is coming to Disney+ in 2021. As fans might be able to decipher from its title, The Bad Batch will follow the elite and experimental clones that were originally introduced in The Clone Wars.

“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,” explained Lucasfilm. “In the post-Clone War era, they will take on daring mercenary missions as they struggle to stay afloat and find new purpose.”

“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,” said Agnes Chu, senior vice president, Content, Disney+. “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.”

  1. Wish it was a game and not another cartoon. But, Dave Filoni has had a good run with Clone Wars and Rebels, so it might work out. I mean, I’d probably still be watching Rebels if it hadn’t ended… so maybe.
