Star Wars: The Bad Batch Season 2 Release Schedule: When is Episode 1 Coming to Disney Plus?
Star Wars: The Bad Batch returns to Disney Plus on Wednesday as the second season of the CGI animated series kicks off with a two-episode premiere. It brings back the genetically enhanced clone squad introduced in the final season of The Clone Wars after they fled the Empire and became mercenaries.
The show starts on Wednesday January 4th and we will be getting episodes every week until March 29th. Star Wars fans’ Wednesdays will be packed in March as The Mandalorian season 3 begins this month.

Is there a trailer for The Bad Batch season 2?
Yes, and more than one. Lucasfilm released the first trailer during Star Wars Celebration Anaheim last May and a second one in December.
Where is The Bad Batch located in the Star Wars timeline?
The show takes place between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope in the early days of the Empire’s reign. In terms of animated series, it takes place between The Clone Wars and Rebels (it also takes place before the live-action show Obi-Wan Kenobi).
All of the Star Wars movies and shows are on Disney Plus, so you can catch up as you please.
Should I watch The Clone Wars before The Bad Batch?
The Bad Batch picks up multiple storylines from The Clone Wars’ seven seasons, leaving you occasionally at a loss when characters appear that clearly have a long history. However, you can still follow the Core Clone Squad’s main stories, Omega and Crosshair.
You should definitely watch season 1 before you start the second – there are 16 episodes, and they’re all available on Disney Plus.
