    The Bad Batch will make its debut on Disney Plus on May the 4th, and even though we have known the release details for the show for a while now, we didn't really know how long it will be running. Since the show will be dropping a weekly episode, every Friday, except for this week, when two episodes drop, one on Tuesday (the 70-minute premiere) and the next one on Friday, a logical (yet disappointing) answer would have been six episodes, since that would place the last episode of the series on June 4, a week before Marvel's Loki show for Disney Plus drops.



    However, those who are excited about the Clone Wars spin-off series can now sigh in relief, because the total episode count is gonna be much higher than that. We already knew that was not the case, since Kevin Kiner said in an interview last month he’d just finished scoring the 14th episode. In a new interview with CNET, Brad Rau, who directed the series, said that there will be 16 episodes. He also weighed in on the possibility of a second season:



    This places the season finale for The Bad Batch on August 13, 2021. Whether or not a making-of documentary on the series is coming out next, remains to be seen. After that, Star Wars: Visions will be coming out before The Book of Boba Fett closes the chapter of 2021 Star Wars by December. Visions is set to have 10 episodes, so unless Boba Fett premieres before December, which is unlikely given the title card at the end of The Mandalorian season 2, we won't be having back-to-back Star Wars shows on Disney Plus for the rest of the year.

    The episode count, however, was not the only remarkable quote from that interview. Writer Jennifer Corbett was asked about the inclusion of the young Omega, which she used to fuel a lot of speculation:



    Speaking of The Bad Batch, yet another clip just dropped online. While it is labeled as a featurette, it is basically a collection of short clips from the episodes while the characters are introduced one by one via voice-over. Check it out:

    The Bad Batch officially drops tomorrow, on May the 4th. Look forward to our review of the first episode in the morning, but if you are already hungry for some first reactions, here is ours (non-spoiler):

    Aftermath is the title of the premiere episode, which is 70 minutes long.
