Of all the TV shows on their way and being hyped and discussed, the one currently generating the least buzz is The Bad Batch, but that could be about to change as Cinelinx land upon an interesting tidbit of rumour regarding a familiar face that could become a part of the show, coming off the back of last weeks very welcome return in The Mandalorian.

On top of getting her live-action debut in The Mandalorian Chapter 11, Bo-Katan will return to her animated roots as well! At this point in the Star Wars timeline, this would be shortly after her role in the Siege of Mandalore (seen in the final season of The Clone Wars) and well before she took hold of the Darksaber in Star Wars Rebels.

It’s a relatively unexplored time, could definitely help fill in some gaps about what exactly happened to Mandalore during the age of the Empire. How exactly that all ties into The Bad Batch and what those specialized Clone soldiers are up to, hard to say. Perhaps it has something to do with the titular Clones seeking out their original, Mandalorian, heritage after feeling listless in the wake of the Clone Wars.

An animated return for Bo-Katan coming after her live action appearance in The Mandalorian, would be fascinating, further cementing the intent of Lucasfilm to show that be it live action, animated, drawn or written, the weave of stories within the GFFA are all part of the same tapestry.
