and looking towards The Bad Batch Season 2
Hi everyone, I appreciate that I’ve slacked off a little with the newsletter but with a demanding day job sometimes our creative projects fall by the wayside. Well we are coming into the new year and with my subscriber numbers growing more and more and above my expectations I want to put some focus into talking about Star Wars a bit more going forward. I do have a blog here but writing about Star Wars here seems to make more sense to me and gives me another avenue to try. I hope you have all had a good Christmas and if you are currently off work for the holidays are having a relaxing break. The biggest news to look forward to for me is the upcoming Bad Batch season 2 that kicks off on the 4th January, so we aren’t that far away from another Disney+ Star Wars series!
I loved the first season and the trailer for season 2 looks more action and fast paced. Clone Force 99 are still looking for purpose and Omega seems to have grown up a bit more and it’s good to see her skills are improving. I’m curious to know if we’ll get a season 3 already given the timeline we are working with. In parts of the trailer it certainly looks to have a darker tone and as per the first season I imagine it’ll be mix of lighter and darker episodes.
Here’s the list of episodes that we’ll see
January 4, 2023 — Episode 201 “Spoils of War” & Episode 202 “Ruins of War”
January 11, 2023 — Episode 203 “The Solitary Clone”
January 18, 2023 — Episode 204 “Faster”
January 25, 2023 — Episode 205 “Entombed”
February 1, 2023 — Episode 206 “Tribe”
February 8, 2023 — Episode 207 “The Clone Conspiracy” & Episode 208 “Truth and Consequences”
February 15, 2023 — Episode 209 “The Crossing”
February 22, 2023 — Episode 210 “Retrieval”
March 1, 2023 — Episode 211 “Metamorphosis”
March 8, 2023 — Episode 212 “The Outpost”
March 15, 2023 — Episode 213 “Pabu”
March 22, 2023 — Episode 214 “Tipping Point”
March 29, 2023 — Episode 215 “The Summit” & Episode 216 “Plan 99”
Did you get any Star Wars merchandise for Christmas that you’d like to share in the comments? I got one of the Lego sets that’s been on my list for a while - Obi-wan Jedi Starfighter. As I’ve gotten less space over time I tend to prefer these smaller sets that you can do in a couple of hours and you can put on the shelf not taking up too much space. I’d love a collector series AT-AT or Razor Crest but I have nowhere to put them.
Have a great week and may the force be with you.
