It looks like Star Wars streaming has begun to slow down a bit. Since the release of The Mandalorian in late 2019, fans have been getting plenty of shows. Following The Mandalorian was The Clone Wars finale season, The Bad Batch, The Book of Boba Fett, and the non-canon Visions. All of these additions have been very well received, but it appears that fans won’t see The Bad Batch season 2 until 2023.
The news has not been confirmed by Lucasfilm or Disney, but it was noticed by a fan on Reddit. User BZPJMJ64noticed that issue 209 of Star Wars Insider had removed the Spring 2022 release teaser and replaced it with “coming soon.”
That change lets us fans know that The Bad Batch Season 2 won’t be released anytime soon, so fans will have to wait to uncover more about Omega’s life and how the Empire used the Kaminoan’s top scientists for Palpatine’s cloning obsession.
But this change in the release doesn’t necessarily mean all bad news.

The show most likely got pushed back to make room for the live-action shows set to release this year, like Kenobi and Andor. Kenobi will officially release on May 25th, 2022, and the spy-thriller series, Andor, is scheduled to release in late Summer 2022. These shows are major headliners, and although The Bad Batch has already been established, it won’t pull the subscriber numbers that live-action will.
The show can fit into the Fall scheduling and premiere after Andor, that is, if The Mandalorian season 3 doesn’t fill that spot.
Star Wars fans can look forward to new content scheduled to release this year. What are your thoughts? When do you expect to see The Bad Batch season 2?
