Lucasfilm released the first trailer for The Bad Batch Season 3, which is going to debut on February 21st with a three-episode premiere.

The trailer is pretty great, which you can check out below. It even packed in a major character reveal that already has fans wondering what the flip is going on. Asajj Ventress, a character once thought dead thanks to a Star Wars novel, is seemingly alive and the creative team is assuring fans that her canon lore is still legit.

“We love Asajj Ventress. She’s a character that we’ve been wanting to tell more stories about. We don’t want to spoil anything, but want fans to know that any new storytelling with Ventress will align with the events of Star Wars: Dark Disciple.”

Brad Rau BB Supervising Director

Take a deep breath fan boys and girls, they got you and our former bald lady with dual red blades.
