Disney+’s latest Star Wars adventure is an animated series that fans did not see coming — Star Wars: The Bad Batch.

Already nearly midway through the season, the episodes have been making a splash among Star Wars fans. And in just a few episodes alone, they’ve added so much to the depth and breadth of Star Wars’ lore that it certainly makes for a series you won’t want to miss out on.

The series follows the adventures of Clone Force 99 — Hunter, Echo, Tech, Wrecker and Crosshair, as well as their new recruit, the young female clone Omega. With the galaxy rapidly changing around them, the clone force must navigate their way around this new society in the age of the Empire and find their place in this chaos now that the Clone Wars are over.

So far, episodes have typically been airing weekly on Disney+, releasing on Fridays at 3 a.m. ET, and there will be 16 episodes total in the series. To see when each episode of The Bad Batch airs, you can check out the full schedule below.
