“The Bad Batch” should rather be a bridge between “The Clone Wars” and “Star Wars Rebels“act. The period between Order 66 and the start of the rebellion was in “Star Wars”-Universum so far only little lit.
That “Star Wars: The Bad Batch” also refers to “Star Wars Rebels” became clear in episode 1, after all three characters appeared who are important in “Star Wars Rebels”: Saw Gerrera, Moff Tarkin and a young Caleb Dume, who bears the name Kanan Jarrus in “Rebels”.
