Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 has been a blast so far, but some players are starting to wonder when the current season will come to an end – and when Season 2 will begin.

Chapter 3 of Fortnite kicked off with a bang, introducing an entirely new map to explore, the long-awaited Spider-Man crossover (complete with a web-swinging item), and another Battle Pass with some epic neon Super Level Styles.

While there’s still plenty to come in Chapter 3 Season 1, including some exciting pop-culture crossovers, it’s always tempting to look ahead to the next major update. To do that, we need to know when the current season is set to end.

Here’s everything we know about Chapter 3 Season 1’s end date – and what you can expect from Season 2 when it arrives.


When does Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 end?

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 is currently scheduled to end on Saturday, March 19, 2022.

The most recent season ended on a Saturday too, with a huge live event known as The End, so this seems about right – and suggests we could be in for another big finale event!

Of course, there’s always a chance that Epic Games could extend the season, which is something they have done in the past, but this seems unlikely as most recent seasons have ended on schedule.

When does Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 start?

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 is expected to begin on Sunday, March 20, 2022.

While new seasons have traditionally started on Tuesdays, Chapter 3 Season 1 broke the mold by launching early on a Sunday, and it seems likely that this will be the case with every season going forward.

What will happen in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2?

There are no official details about what will happen in Chapter 3 Season 2 yet, but based on the events of the current season, there are a few ideas floating about.

Some players have speculated that there could be a war between The Seven and the Imagined Order. With the two sides currently fighting for control of the Island, it’s definitely building up to something big.

It’s also likely that we’ll be introduced to the remaining members of The Seven: The Origin and The Sisters. Two skins were recently included in a survey sent out to players, and they look like they could fit the bill.

What’s going to be in the Chapter 3 Season 2 Battle Pass?

It’s still too early to tell what’s going to be in the Chapter 3 Season 2 Battle Pass, as Epic Games usually remain tight-lipped about this until launch day – and leaks won’t start rolling in until closer to the time.

Having said that, there are already some rumors and speculation about what it could feature. One theory is that we might get a Star Wars season, similar to the Marvel season, or at least a Star Wars character in the Battle Pass.

With the current Battle Pass starring the popular Marvel superhero Spider-Man, Epic Games will no doubt want to make sure the next one is just as big. Whatever it contains, it’s safe to expect at least one famous crossover character.
