Unfortunately, fans of the series will have to wait a bit for their next trip on the Marauder. Although The Bad Batch was supposed to premiere later this month on September 28, the internet was full of rumors that season 2 will be delayed. Now it’s official – Per Looper’s source at this year’s D23 Expo, new episodes of Star Wars: The Bad Batch will air on January 4, 2023. In addition, the second season will have a total of 16 episodes. which corresponds to the number of episodes of the first season. The first season was filled with references to other storylines in the franchise, a strategy that not only helps pinpoint the time period but also leaves a treasure trove of Easter eggs for longtime fans of the Star Wars universe.
While this news is discouraging, it is far from surprising. The clone-led series isn’t the only Star Wars show to face scheduling setbacks. Andor, which features the backstory of Rogue One hero Cassian Andor (Diego Luna), has also been pushed back from its original release date (via television line). We hope that the premiere of the second season of “The Bad Batch” will pass without incident in the new year.
