Star Wars: The Bad Batch is coming to an end. During this year’s Star Wars Celebration, Lucasfilm announced that the animated series has been renewed for a third and final season that will arrive on Disney Plus in 2024.

The Clone Wars spinoff follows a group of experimental clone troopers, known collectively as Clone Force 99, who became fugitives after resisting the Order 66 command that brainwashed their counterparts into viewing Jedi as traitors. The show’s second season just wrapped up last month, and the fans at the Star Wars Celebration got a first look at what’s to come with an in-room teaser trailer.

The teaser, which Lucasfilm has yet to post online, opens with Emperor Palpatine, who’s once again voiced by Ian McDiarmid, and teases the appearance of Dr. Royce Hemlock and The Mandalorian bounty hunter Fennec Shand. There are also “glimpses of several worlds and characters, including Republic commandos, clones, Rex,” and “plenty of giant creatures,” according to Lucasfilm.

We still don’t know the exact release date for The Bad Batch’s final season, but, with Star Wars: Visions Volume 2 set to premiere in May and Star Wars: Ahsoka making its debut in August, we’ll have plenty of Star Wars content to keep us busy until we find out.
