Disney XD and Marvel confirmed this week that season two of the Guardians of the Galaxy animated series is going to continue very soon. New episodes will debut on the network on Saturday, March 11. The occasion will be marked by a one-hour premiere of two back-to-back episodes.
Additionally, Marvel has also confirmed there will be six, new animated shorts on the adventures of the five main characters of the Guardians starting on February 27. These shorts will be available on the Disney XD app, VOD, and Disney XD’s YouTube channel.
The first episode on Saturday, March 11 at 9:00 p.m., EST/PST, will be “Stayin’ Alive.” In this episode, when the Guardians are trying to dispose of Thanos’ asteroid, they find it has been taken to a secure facility that happens to belong to the Avengers.
In “Evolution Rock” at 9:30 p.m., EST/PST, the Guardians and Avengers now have to team up to find the secrets that are inside Thanso’ Asteroid. So it looks like the two back-to-back episodes will feature a fun team-up with the Avengers.
