The latest Star Wars series has been off to a great start since premiering on Disney+ earlier this month just in time for May the Fourth. The Bad Batch, which is a spin-off of the long-running and beloved show The Clone Wars, follows the titular group, otherwise known as Clone Force 99, as they navigate life after the war ends. The Galactic Empire has now begun, and they need to determine what they feel is their responsibility and what is morally right.
Already, we’ve lost Crosshair to Tarkin and his soldiers back at Kamino, as we learned that his inhibitor chip was keeping him in line to follow orders. As for the others, they’ve fled the scene alongside a new addition named Omega. Omega is a young girl who seemingly fits in with the Bad Batch simply because she’s also a bit of an outcast, but as we recently learned, she’s actually the target of someone presumably very powerful.
As we speculate who’s after Omega, let’s break down when we can expect the next episode of The Bad Batch to drop. Will episode 5 debut on Disney+ this week?
When is the next episode of The Bad Batch?
Fortunately, the debut season will continue this week without any interruptions, meaning The Bad Batch episode 5 will drop this Friday, May 28, only on Disney+.
There’s set to be 16 episodes total in The Bad Batch season 1, meaning Star Wars fans will be lucky enough to get new episodes through August! While the finale date is not confirmed, we’re expecting it to be released on August 13–that is, if there aren’t any breaks in the release schedule.
The Bad Batch episode 5 release time
We can also expect the next episode of The Bad Batch to drop at its usual timeslot of 12:01 a.m. PT / 3:01 a.m. ET. This is the normal release time for most Disney+ shows.
What do you suspect will go down during this week’s episode? Only one way to find out! Keep watching the new series every Friday and keep up with our Star Wars: The Bad Batch coverage on Dork Side of the Force!
