Disney+ show to end with third season
The Disney+ series Star Wars: The Broken Batch has been extended for a final third season, which will air in 2024 and conclude the story of Omega, Crosshair and the rest of Squad 99 in the early days of the Galactic Empire. The animated series' renewal for a third season was announced by its executive producers Brad Rau, Jennifer Corbett and Athena Yvette Portillo at Star Wars Celebration on Monday, April 10, 2023.

Ahead of the second season premiere, the show's producers talked about coordinating with other series of the era, such as Star Wars: Andor and Obi-Wan Kenobi. "Where we are in The Broken Batch, the Empire era starts a little early, and we're quite far away from Obi-Wan Kenobi and Andor. But that doesn't mean that some of the storylines we have don't have an impact on those shows. We do rely on the Lucasfilm Story Group, who are with us whenever we have story conferences, and they comment on storylines if some of them go into territory that might affect something that's either in development or being filmed at the moment. So, we are aware of that. But so far we haven't been told, "No, you can't do it because of that". It's really more of a collaboration and just checking that we're telling better stories without affecting other upcoming events," Jennifer Corbett explained.
