At the Star Wars Celebration in London, Lucasfilm announced that “Star Wars: The Bad Batch” will return for a third and final season on Disney+ in 2024. The company has not given an exact release date.
The series follows Clone Force 99, also known as the Bad Batch, a group of elite clones in the wake of Order 66 and the rise of the Empire. The end of Season 2 left fans reeling after the death of team member Tech and the capture of Omega.
The company made the announcement on the fourth day of the Star Wars Celebration 2023 event. On Friday, Lucasfilm announced that the Star Wars spin-off “The Acolyte” will premiere on Disney+ in 2024. The series is set at the end of the High Republic era, before the events of the main Star Wars films. Amandla Stenberg and Lee Jung-jae will play the lead roles.
Lucasfilm also announced today that the “Ahsoka” series will debut in August 2023. The upcoming shows will join the growing roster of live-action Star Wars series on Disney+, including “The Mandalorian,” “Andor,” and “The Book of Boba Fett.” In addition, the company revealed that the second season of “Andor” will debut in August 2024.
Lucasfilm also announced three Star Wars movies, one of which will feature Daisy Ridley’s return as Rey. The film is set 15 years after the events of “The Rise of Skywalker” and revolves around Rey forming a new Jedi Order. One of the films goes back to the beginnings of the Jedi, while the third film focuses on the New Republic and the interconnected stories from “The Mandalorian”, “The Book of Boba Fett”, “Ahsoka” and other Disney+ series. Disney and Lucasfilm have not announced release dates for any of these films.
