Star Wars: The Bad Batch isn’t as good as clone Wars or Rebels, but the series does a good job of giving a view of the Star Wars universe in the aftermath of Order 66. With that said, we’ve got a good feeling about season 2. It usually takes a season for child characters on Star Wars to stop being annoying, so this could be the moment that Omega comes into her own.

The first trailer for season two of the series just dropped and it sets up an action-packed set of new episodes, new voice actors (including Wanda Sykes), an appearance by Rex, and the beginning of a larger goal for our team than just survival and protecting their child. The Bad Batch starts streaming on Disney+ January 4, 2023.
