Disney+ has released the Star Wars: The Bad Batch Season 3 trailer, teaser poster., and release date, with the trailer revealing the surprising return of Star Wars: The Clone Wars fan-favorite Asajj Ventress in the animated series’ final season. Ventress’s return is surprising since she supposedly died in the 2015 novel Star Wars: Dark Disciple, created from a story meant for an unproduced Star Wars: The Clone Wars episode. In that novel, Ventress, formerly a Sith assassin and apprentice to Count Dooku, became close with the Jedi Knight Quinlan Vos. After Ventress’s death, Quinlan buried Ventress in the waters of her home planet, Dathomir, home of the Nightsisters (though not their original planet, we now know). Could the necromantic energies associated with that planet have resurrected Ventress? Or is this another example of Dave Filoni overriding canon established by Star Wars publishing to suit the needs of television?

Star Wars: The Bad Batch Season 3 will premiere on Disney+ on February 21st. The trailer is included below.

What is Star Wars: The Bad Batch Season 3 about?

Star Wars: The Bad Batch Season 3 picks up where Season 2 left off. The Bad Batch is still reeling from losing one of their members, Tech, and determined to rescue Omega from capture at Mount Tantiss.

According to a press release from Disney+, in Star Wars: The Bad Batch Season 3, “the Batch will have their limits tested in the fight to reunite with Omega as she faces challenges of her own inside a remote Imperial science lab. With the group fractured and facing threats from all directions, they will have to seek out unexpected allies, embark on dangerous missions, and muster everything they have learned to free themselves from the Empire.”
