The Bad Batch Season 2 Has Had Its Release Date Confirmed By A Disney Plus Help Center Employee
A Disney+ staffer appears to confirm that Star Wars: The Bad Batch's previously announced Season 2 debut date will remain after all.
The Bad Batch, a spinoff of Star Wars: The Clone Wars last season, had its Disney+ debut on May 4, 2021. 16 episodes made up Season 1, which ended on August 13, 2021. Disney+ formally renewed The Bad Batch for Season 2 just before the first season's conclusion.
The Bad Batch chronicles the ongoing adventures of Clone Force 99, a group of genetically altered, faulty Clone Troopers. Additionally, the show helps to fill the chasm between Star Wars Rebels and The Clone Wars.
Early in June of last year, the Disney+ webpage announced that the second season of Star Wars: The Bad Batch will premiere on Wednesday, Sept. 28. However, The Bad Batch's second season was conspicuously absent from Disney+'s list of new programming for the month of September 2022, raising questions about whether it had been postponed. However, one of the streaming service's workers appears to have made things obvious.
An exchange they had with a member of the Disney+ Help Center team has been published by a Reddit user. The worker confirmed that the Sept. 28 launch date for The Bad Batch Season 2 is accurate. This date is still mentioned on Disney's Australian website, another user in the comments noted. Some people believe that Disney+ will officially reveal its debut date during the upcoming D23 Expo, which starts on Friday, September 9.
The Bad Batch's debut season garnered generally positive reviews from reviewers and viewers; it now has a "Certified Fresh" Rotten Tomatoes rating of 86 percent. The agreement among reviewers says, "Fans will love delving further into this diabolical group of characters, even though The Bad Batch's wonderfully illustrated journey may be to lore heavy for casual viewers." The Bad Batch Season 1 presently has an 81 percent viewership rating.
