It’s been more than seven years since Star Wars: The Clone Wars ended its original run, but the story of the Star Wars saga’s clone troopers is far from over. The series was given an additional, story-ending seventh season on streaming service Disney+ a year ago, and now the new series Star Wars: The Bad Batch returns to that tumultuous period in the franchise’s timeline.

Premiering on Star Wars Day, May 4, Star Wars: The Bad Batch follows the members of Clone Force 99, a group of clone troopers  introduced in the final season of The Clone Wars whose genetic mutations during the cloning process gave them unique abilities — and also earned them the nickname “The Bad Batch.” The series picks up as Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine (secretly Sith Lord Darth Sidious) issues Order 66, the command that forces the clone troopers to turn against the Jedi, setting the stage for the eradication of the Jedi Order and the creation of the Galactic Empire.
