‘The Bad Batch’: Michelle Ang Currently Recording Omega’s Parts for Season 2
Back in early August, it was announced The Bad Batch would return for a second season in 2022, and we haven’t heard much about it since then. We now know season 2 is currently recording dialogue, as actress Michelle Ang confirmed on Instagram.
In a post on Tuesday, Ang, who voices Omega, expressed her excitement over being back in a proper studio, which might hint that she had to record her sessions for Season 1 remotely during the height of COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns in 2020. Here is Ang’s post:

The second season of The Bad Batch will be one of the (tentative) eleven Star Wars projects Lucasfilm is planning to release over the “next several years” on Disney Plus. As of now, it is the only animated series scheduled for 2022, though the animated movie A Droid Story might come out next year too.
Three live-action series are planned for next year, and that doesn’t even count The Book of Boba Fett, which, as we learned on Tuesday, will debut on December 29, 2021, meaning that all episodes but one will come out in 2022. Ahsoka and The Acolyte are expected to go into production in the first half of 2022, meaning they wouldn’t hit the streaming platform until 2023.
Currently no other series set for a 2022 release have premiere dates. It is very possible we get some announcements on this front in a few weeks, during Disney Plus Day (November 12).
Miguel Fernández is a Spanish student that has movies as his second passion in life. His favorite movie of all time is The Lord of the Rings, but he is also a huge Star Wars fan. However, fantasy movies are not his only cup of tea, as movies from Scorsese, Fincher, Kubrick or Hitchcock have been an obsession for him since he started to understand the language of filmmaking. He is that guy who will watch a black and white movie, just because it is in black and white.
