Disney+ Announces New Animated Series, Star Wars: The Bad Batch For 2021

Lucasfilm creative mastermind Dave Filoni is at it again, this time with a new animated series, Star Wars: The Bad Batch set for a 2021 Premiere.

According to the press release, “The series follows the elite and experimental clones of the Bad Batch (first introduced in The Clone Wars) as they find their way in a rapidly changing galaxy in the immediate aftermath of the Clone War. Members of Bad Batch — a unique squad of clones who vary genetically from their brothers in the Clone Army — each possess a singular exceptional skill, which makes them extraordinarily effective soldiers and a formidable crew. In the post-Clone War era, they will take on daring mercenary missions as they struggle to stay afloat and find new purpose.”

Star Wars: The Bad Batch is executive produced by Dave Filoni (The Mandalorian, Star Wars: The Clone Wars), Athena Portillo (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels), Brad Rau (Star Wars Rebels, Star Wars Resistance) and Jennifer Corbett (Star Wars Resistance, NCIS) with Carrie Beck (The Mandalorian, Star Wars Rebels) as co-executive producer and Josh Rimes as producer (Star Wars Resistance). Rau is also serving as supervising director with Corbett as head writer.

 

Lucifer Season 5 Gets a Trailer

Back on August 21, Part 1 of Season 5 of Lucifer will premiere only on Netflix.  Tom Ellis returns in a season that Netflix describes as, “The stakes are higher than ever.

The Alienist: Angel of Darkness Gets a Trailer

This season, Sara (Dakota Fanning) has opened her own private detective agency and is leading the charge on a brand-new case. She reunites with Dr. Kreizler (Daniel Brühl), the formidable alienist, and John Moore (Luke Evans), now a New York Times reporter, to find Ana Linares, the kidnapped infant daughter of the Spanish Consular. Their investigation leads them down a sinister path of murder and deceit, heading towards a dangerous and elusive killer. As in The Alienist, the series shines a light on the provocative issues of the era – the corruption of institutions, income inequality, yellow press sensationalism, and the role of women in society – themes that still resonate today.

The Alienist: Angel of Darkness will premiere Sunday, July 19 with two episodes airing back to back starting at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The series will roll out as a four week event with two episodes airing every Sunday starting at 9 p.m. ET/PT through August 9.
