The first episode of “Star Wars: The Bad Batch” arrives on Disney+ on Star Wars Day, May 4th, and if you’ve been wondering how many episodes there are going to be, the show’s director Brad Rau has finally revealed how many episodes are in the first season of the Disney Plus show.
While speaking with CNET, Brad Rau was asked how many episodes there are in this season and if there will be multiple seasons:
We have 16 episodes in season 1. We can’t confirm any more than that, but we have high hopes. We love these characters. We’d love to keep telling the stories.
Up until recently, we only knew that 14 episodes of the show were being released, due to the show’s composer revealing he was working on episode 14 on social media.
Now with confirmation coming directly from the director, we can now look forward to new episodes of the animated series arriving on Disney+ every Friday until mid-August.
“Star Wars: The Bad Batch” follows the elite and experimental clones of the Bad Batch (first introduced in “The Clone Wars”) as they find their way in a rapidly changing galaxy in the immediate aftermath of the Clone War. Members of Bad Batch—a unique squad of clones who vary genetically from their brothers in the Clone Army—each possess a singular, exceptional skill that makes them extraordinarily effective soldiers and a formidable crew.
