Share this:

In 2019, Marvel Studios unveiled their Phase 4 slate for the first time to a packed Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con. Along with announcing multiple films and shows for Disney+, one of the projects they revealed was the premiere of the animated series; “What If…?”. That show would become the pilot project for what would eventually become a subdivision of Marvel Studios known as Marvel Studios Animation. This division would develop several other animated projects set in the MCU, as announced at their panel last year in SDCC . This included productions such as I Am Groot, X-Men’97, Spider-Man: Freshman Year, and Marvel Zombies. Although most of these shows are slated to premiere at some point next year, most have a second season already in development. One such project is I Am Groot. And we can now share when fans can expect the next series of adventures starring everyone’s favorite little tree, Baby Groot in I Am Groot season 2!

Exclusive: I Am Groot season 2 premiere date and Vin Diesel’s return

The Cosmic Circus have heard from our trusted sources that the second season of I Am Groot will release in the Fall this year. Our sources stated that I Am Groot season 2 is expected to premiere in early September. This would place the release of season 2 as the next MCU project following Secret Invasion, which is currently airing on Disney+. It would also release prior to the highly anticipated second season of Loki in October and Echo in November.

The first season of I Am Groot premiered last year on August 10th on Disney+. The season consisted of five original shorts starring Vin Diesel as Baby Groot in some adorable new misadventures. The Cosmic Circus can also confirm via our sources that Vin Diesel will return to voice the titular character again for the second series of shorts. But he’s not alone.
