A brand-new trailer for Star Wars: The Bad Batch‘s second season has confirmed a Fall 2022 release window for the animated Disney+ series.

The trailer and release window news was revealed at Star Wars Celebration 2022 and teases that some time has passed since the first season as our crew looks a bit older and is wearing new gear. It also looks like Emperor Palpatine and Commander Cody will factor into this season alongside a Wookiee Jedi who may or may not be Gungi.

Season 2 of Star Wars: The Bad Batch was announced ahead of the first season’s two-part finale which may have set up Palpatine’s return in The Rise of Skywalker.

The Bad Batch is just one of the many animated projects currently in the works in that galaxy far, far away and sits alongside Star Wars: Visions – which just got confirmed for a second season – Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi, and the High Republic kids’ show Star Wars: Young Jedi Adventures.

Star Wars Celebration was filled with other announcements, including a trailer and release date for Star Wars’ Andor, the official reveal of Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, a tease that Star Wars Rebels’ Ezra, Sabine, Hera, and Chopper would be joining the live-action Ahsoka series, the Star Wars: Skeleton Crew series starring Jude Law, and much more.
