Lucasfilm has now revealed the official release date for Star Wars: The Bad Batch. This is the animated series that takes place after the events of The Clone Wars.

Star Wars: The Bad Batch will be streaming exclusively on May 4th, 2021 on Disney+. We will also get the second episode three days after on May 7th, 2021.

"The series follows the elite and experimental troopers of Clone Force 99 (first introduced in Star Wars: The Clone Wars) as they find their way in a rapidly changing galaxy in the immediate aftermath of the Clone War. Members of Bad Batch, as they prefer to be called — a unique squad of clones who vary genetically from their brothers in the Clone Army — each possess a singular exceptional skill, which makes them extraordinarily effective soldiers and a formidable crew. "
