The Genshin Impact 2.4 update will see the return of Xiao, Ganyu, and Zhongli. Find out when their banner reruns will release. 

Genshin Impact banners are constantly refreshed with every new update, giving players the opportunity to spend their Primogems on the latest characters. While many travelers will be hoping to add Shenhe and Yae Miko to their rosters – there are a few 5-stars that will be returning. 

As with most gacha games, Genshin Impact features reruns where previously released characters are made available again. This is particularly good news for players who missed certain banners or didn’t have enough Intertwined Fates


Fortunately, the recent Genshin Impact 2.4 livestream and banner leaks have given us some news on the upcoming reruns.

As of writing, Shenhe is the next new 5-star that players will be able to roll on, with the banner starting on January 5, 2022After these reruns have been released, miHoYo will likely be adding the remaining new characters to the game. 

The remaining Inazuma character is Yae Miko. However, once the Chief Priestess has been released, players will be able to get their hands on a number of previously released characters.

The Xiao banner rerun will soon be here.

The Xiao banner rerun will appear in the 2.4 update, which releases on January 5, 2022. His banner will appear alongside Shenhe’s and marks the second time he has been made available in Genshin Impact. As an Anemo Adeptus, Xiao is no stranger to a challenge.

In fact, the polearm unit can often be seen leaping into the air and decimating his foes with deadly AoE wind-based attacks. This makes him a great DPS and sub-DPS unit for all kinds of team comps. As a result, saving Primogems for Xiao’s banner rerun could be imperative for many travelers.

Ganyu banner rerun

The Ganyu rerun banner “Adrift in the Harbor” will release on January 25, 2022Ganyu has quickly become one of the most powerful characters in the game, and as a result, many players will be wanting to add the Cryo bow user to their roster when her banner goes live. 


The Plenilune Gaze excels at dealing huge amounts of crit damage to frozen enemies, making her an essential pick for any player looking to maximize their DPS. 

Zhongli banner rerun

The Zhongli banner rerun is one of the most anticipated rereleases in Genshin Impact.

Zhongli’s banner rerun will appear in the 2.4 update alongside Ganyu on January 25, 2022. The 5-star polearm character pummels his foes with Geo-based attacks, while also shielding his allies from danger. Not only is Zhongli capable of unleashing some ludicrous damage, but he also ensures your team remains healthy throughout the toughest of fights.

This makes Zhongli an incredibly popular pick amongst any team that is looking to increase survivability, while also adding even more DPS to their comp. If you have yet to unlock Zhongli, his 2.4 rerun will give you the perfect opportunity to claim him. 


So, there you have it, every Genshin Impact banner rerun that will be available in the future. We’ll be updating this post with details as and when we get them.
