We’re less than a week away from the premiere of season two of The Bad Batch, and even though the series seems to be flying under the radar a bit, recent promotional material has been showcasing the main team of heroes, made up of a group of modified and enhanced clones in the aftermath of Order 66.
Part of that was a new 30 second promo spot that was released today, showcasing each member of the team with some brief new footage:
It takes a look at the team as a whole, but also the individual members. There’s Hunter, Tech, Omega, Echo, and Wrecker. Hunter is the squad leader who has enhanced tracking abilities. Tech is able to hack and slice into most anything. Echo spent time as a Separatist prisoner, through which he came to possess cybernetic enhancements. Wrecker possesses exceptional strength. And Omega is the final clone specimen, causing her to be a prized target. Together, the group makes up Clone Force 99, but they have to make their way in a rapidly changing galaxy. Order 66 has happened, meaning the Republic has fallen and the Empire has risen. The Bad Batch aren’t loyal to the Empire (except their former comrade, Crosshair), but they’re trying to figure out exactly how they fit in to a galaxy that is changing all around them – and seemingly moving on from a need for the clones at all.
The Bad Batch premieres on January 4, 2023, and will feature 16 episodes in its second season, just like the first. It stars Dee Bradley Baker as the voice of the clones and Michelle Ang as the voice of Omega, and it is executive produced by Dave Filoni, Athena Yvette Portillo, Jennifer Corbett, and Brad Rau.
In addition to the promo spot, a series of character posters have been released for the series, showcasing many of the main team:
