What Will Happen in The Bad Batch Season 3?

As The Bad Batch continues to explore the gray area between Star Wars' prequel trilogy and the original trilogy, Season 3 adds a new layer to that story by returning to the grand scheme laid out by Emperor Palpatine.

This largely comes through via Project Necromancer, giving fans the earliest look at the answers to the mystery behind "somehow, Palpatine returned," which became one of the biggest talking points of Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker.

Meanwhile, Omega and Crosshair finally escape their imprisonment using Palpatine's visit for their getaway, although Omega remains in danger due to her blood being a necessary ingredient for Project Necromancer.

The coming weeks will also bring some epic moments in the Star Wars saga for returning characters like Fennec Shand and even Asajj Ventress, setting plenty of questions for The Bad Batch's final run.

The first three episodes of The Bad Batch Season 3 are now streaming on Disney+.
