The second season of Star Wars: The Bad Batch is one of the most anticipated Star Wars shows of 2023, with fans desperate to learn what becomes of the titular rag-tag group of mercenaries. But who are the voice actors for the upcoming show, and who will they be playing?
What is Star Wars: The Bad Batch Season 2?
Star Wars: The Bad Batch is a spin-off of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. It follows a group of highly-skilled clone troopers dubbed the Bad Batch. These clones, Hunter, Wrecker, Tech, Crosshair, and Echo, are labeled as such because each suffers from unique genetic mutations, making them stand out against the other clone troopers.
In the aftermath of the Clone War, these troopers become mercenaries and take on various missions as they try to make ends meet. But, the tumultuous period means that these missions often don’t go as planned, throwing the Bad Batch into massive, pivotal events within the Star Wars universe.
The first season of Star Wars: The Bad Batch landed on Disney Plus in 2021, with the show receiving praise from fans and critics alike. The show’s second season will run for 16 episodes, with new episodes airing weekly until the finale on March 19, 2023.
