The Bad Batch To Get A Third And Final Season

The Bad Batch will get a third and final season, this was revealed earlier today at Star Wars Celebration in London. A SWCE exlusive trailer was also shown which reveals that Palpatine will return in season 3, as well as Fennec Shand who was featured in season 1 and Wolffe.

However, the way animation is produced it is misleading to assume the season was greenlit just “now” or even recently. The fact that they could already show a teaser trailer means the season has been in (post) production for quite a while now, rendering takes quite some time. The dialogue was probably recorded more than a year ago, before Disney knew what the ratings for season 2 would be. Let’s just hope the producers were given advance notice that this will be the final season, so they can bring things to a proper conclusion. The Bad Batch will return for the final season in 2024.

Let’s also hope that showrunner Jennifer Corbett won’t waste time on random fetch quests and treasure hunts in season 3, since half of season 2 was entirely pointless, with the other half however delivering good to very good episodes that prove The Bad Batch could have been excellent if they had focused more on the actual plot.

Tales of the Jedi will also return. This was announced previously at SWCE.

Palpatine will return in The Bad Batch season 3

It’s finally time to talk about the Bad Batch season 2 finale, which consists of three parts. Now The Bad Batch season 2 was very, very uneven, to put it mildly, but the season does go out with a bang and not a whimper and it goes in directions few people probably predicted it would go. In fact, this multi episode arc is in many ways better than anything we have seen in The Mandalorian season 3 so far.

The Bad Batch season 2 does its best to make its version of The Empire Strikes Back and thus the Bad Batch and the viewers are left behind defeated, with a (seemingly) dead team member and Omega in Imperial captivity. And then there’s a final reveal that will have viewers scracth their heads.

So there’s a lot to unpack, read my spoiler-review and let’s discuss The Bad Batch season 2 finale by clicking here or on the banner!

We still need to talk about the last The Bad Batch episode: “Pabu”. It’s yet another filler and the archetypical “false paradise” episode where the heroes find a place that tempts them to stay for good.
“Pabu” is by far my least favorite episode this season, which is saying something, since we already had quite some filler episodes this season. Well, there is one major development in “Pabu” at least, so that’s something.

So let’s talk about season 2 episode number 13 out of 16. Or 29 out of 32 overall. And chances are there will never be an episode 33. We will see. Click here to read my spoiler review and let’s talk about “Pabu”.

Better late than never… it’s high time we talk about the most recent The Bad Batch episode. It’s this season’s second solo Crosshair episode, meaning the Bad Batch are completely absent and instead the episode focuses on the sole Clone Force 99 trooper who decided not to defect and to stay loyal to the Empire. But what has that given Crosshair in return? “The Outpost” is a pretty tragic tale about the clone who abandoned everything, because he only wanted to be a soldier who follows orders. Until he reached his breaking point… “The Outpost” is yet another of those The Bad Batch episodes you can watch without having seen most of season 2, in fact, if all you watched is the previous season 2 Crosshair episode and remember the basic events from season 1 you’re good to go. The episode is absolutely worth your time!

With The Mandalorian on Disney+ now The Bad Batch takes somewhat of a backseat, so reviews for the animated quasi sequel to The Clone Wars will always follow in the days after it is released for the remaining couple of episodes. However, as it turns out I actually liked the latest The Bad Batch episode a bit more than The Mandalorian season 3 opener. If you gave up on The Bad Batch before I cannot fault you, season 2 has been filled with pointless episodes about nothing and the only good episodes were without the Bad Batch as main characters, or they were even completely absent, and here I talk about the one Crosshair episode and the Senator Chuchi two-parter.
However, it seems The Bad Batch will shed some light on Palpatine’s secret cloning project that is still ongoing decades later when the now Imperial Remnant is after Grogu. Metamorphosis shows us the very beginnings of this project. The episode also has some space horror / Alien vibe and later quotes good old Godzilla. In short: Metamorphosis may very well be worth your time actually! And once again, you needn’t have watched a single season 2 episode to tune in, if the last episode you watched is the season 1 finale, then that is all you need.

So read my spoiler review for Metamorphosis and let’s discuss the 11th season 2 episode of The Bad Batch!

In case you wonder why there was no Bad Batch review last week… it turns out The Crossing and Retrieval are a two-part episode, so I wanted to review both episodes at once, which, in my opinion, makes more sense than discussing each episode individually. And yes, it’s mostly back to normal procedure this time, with yet another fetch quest for Cid. But things are a bit different this time, since we get some actual messages in the episodes instead of just pointless action.

Omega is pretty angry and sad after Echo’s departure and lets everyone know about it. And she hasn’t even hit puberty yet. Meanhwile Cid has the Bad Batch play space miners and we get some wild west vibes with pretty vistas of a Space Grand Canyon. But throughout the course of the two episodes eveything turns into Oliver Twist in space… so there are quite a few things to talk about! Click here or on the banner to read my spoiler review for both episodes and let’s discuss the latest Bad Batch adventure!

If you have avoided The Bad Batch thus far you should make an exception for the two-parter released today. Because what we get is not The Bad Batch, but more something in the best tradition of The Clone Wars, even featuring a new main character who was in several The Clone Wars episodes previously: Pantoran senator Riyo Chuchi, and she is actually awesome. She also gets help from none other than Bail Organa and Rex.

The Bad Batch clones only make an appearance in the second episode, but even then only in a subplot and the focus is still very much on things like the Imperial senate, political intrigue, senator Chuchi, the fate of the clone troopers, Admiral Rampart’s schemes and of course the Emperor himself, who is two or three steps ahead of everyone else. So yes, Palpatine makes an appearance in The Bad Batch and he is voiced by Ian McDiarmid. In short: this is actually worth your time and the episodes are about an important event! You don’t even need to have watched any The Bad Batch episodes, none of the previous episodes matter here really, other than the season 1 finale, which serves as the background, but the events of that are summarized here again, so you know what it’s all about: the destruction of Kamino and how the Empire covered it up.

So read my spoiler review for today’s episodes and let’s discuss it all, just click here or on the banner!
