Get ready, clone fans: Lucasfilm has announced the Disney+ date for the second season of Star Wars: The Bad Batch, the fan-favorite spin-off from the animated Clone Wars series.

As revealed by Dave Filoni during the Saturday morning Lucasfilm presentation at D23 Expo 2022 in Anaheim, California, the second season of the show will debut with a two-episode premiere on January 4, 2023.

That’s not all, when it comes to Star Was animation, either; the upcoming Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi series will launch October 26 on Disney+, with all six shorts released at the same time, including stories featuring Ahsoka Tano and Count Dooku.

Both shows will be available exclusively on Disney+.

Catch up on this and all the big news, reports, interviews, and galleries of the weekend with Popverse's D23 Expo 2022 coverage round-up.

In some ways, D23 Expo is a three-day live version of Disney's streaming service Disney+. TV shows, movies, and specials from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Lucasfilm, 20th Century Studios, National Geographic, and more are on the streaming service.
