The iconic Commander Cody is returning to action in the upcoming second season of Disney+'s Star Wars: The Bad Batch. His return was revealed during the Bad Batch season 2 panel here at Star Wars Celebration 2022, and served a fitting final-day announcement.
Commander Cody (or CC-2224 if you need to use his official designation) is one of the earliest Clone troopers, and became one of the most memorable due to his service under Obi-Wan Kenobi during the Clone Wars cartoon, and in the live-action Revenge of the Sith film. Played in live action by Temeura Morrison (remember, the clones were originally all clones of Jango Fett), Commander Cody was later voiced for animated projects by Dee Bradley Baker.
Dee Bradley Baker is already performing yeoman's work in Bad Batch, as he voices nearly all of the Clone troopers in all of animation.
Fans have been pining for Commander Cody to return following his final appearance in the finale of The Clone Wars. Lucasfilm considered bringing the character back for the Star Wars Rebels, but it was ultimately nixed.
"Months have passed since the events on Kamino and the Bad Batch continue their journey navigating the Empire after the fall of the Republic," reads Lucasfilm's description of Bad Batch season 2. "They will cross paths with friends and foes, both new and familiar, as they take on a variety of thrilling mercenary missions that will take them to unexpected and dangerous new places."
