Disney+ has released a trailer and key art for Season 2 of the Lucasfilm Animation series Star Wars: The Bad Batch. The popular CG-animated series about a genetically mutated group of mercenaries kicks off its all-new two-episode season on January 4.
In the new season, months have passed since the events of Kamino, and Bad Batch continues his journey navigating the Empire after the fall of the Republic. They will cross paths with friends and enemies, both new and familiar, as they take on a series of exciting mercenary missions that will take them to unexpected and dangerous new places.
Season 2 stars Emmy Award nominee Dee Bradley Baker (American Dad!) as the voice of Bad Batch and Emmy Award nominee Michelle Ang (Fear the Walking Dead: Flight 462) as the voice of Omega. Emmy Award winner Rhea Perlman (The Mindy Project, Cheers) returns to guest star as the Cid, Noshir Dalal (It’s a pony, The owl house) returns to guest star as Vice Admiral Rampart, and Emmy Award winner Wanda Sykes (Upshaw’s, Blackish) makes his guest debut in the series as Phee Genoa.
The series is executive produced by Dave Filoni (The Mandalorian, Star Wars: The Clone Wars); Athena Portillo (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels); Brad Rau (Star Wars Rebels, Star Wars resistance); Jennifer Corbett (Star Wars resistance, NCIS); and Carrie Beck (The Mandalorian, Star Wars Rebels) with Josh Rimes (Star Wars resistance, Star Wars: Visions) and Alex Spotswood (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels) as producers.
