After the release of season 2, speculation has arisen about the production of I Am Groot season 3, which would feature more short adventures for Groot in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). I Am Groot is a series of standalone shorts that first premiered on August 10, 2022, focusing on the youngest member of the Guardians of the Galaxy. While the first episode takes place before 2017’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, most of the other episodes are set after the film but before its post-credits scene.
Discovered Regarding Season 3 of I Am Groot
The popularity of I Am Groot can be attributed to its adorable protagonist and the fact that the stories are short and entertaining. Despite some debate about the series’ canonicity to the wider MCU, with director James Gunn stating that he doesn’t consider it canon to his MCU projects, I Am Groot seems to fit perfectly into the timeline between Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and its post-credits scene.
Although there is no official confirmation about a third season of I Am Groot, creator Kristin Leopore revealed that 30 different storylines were presented to Marvel Studios for each season, indicating that there are plenty of ideas for future shorts. With the quick and painless production process for these episodes, it is highly likely that further adventures with Groot will be produced in the MCU’s future.
If a third season is developed, Vin Diesel is expected to return as the voice of Groot, as he has done a fantastic job bringing the character to life. There is also a potential for other Guardians of the Galaxy characters, such as Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper) and the Watcher (voiced by Jeffrey Wright), to make appearances in season 3.
The stories in I Am Groot have been unpredictable, featuring Groot in outlandish and fantastical situations. Season 3 may explore a slightly older version of Groot, as viewers have already seen him transition from Baby Groot to Teenage Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’s post-credits scene.
If the series follows a similar release pattern, I Am Groot season 3 could premiere in the fall of 2024 on Disney+. However, the ongoing WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes may affect the production and involvement of the voice cast. Nonetheless, making Groot’s escapades a consistent fixture would be a smart choice for Marvel Studios, especially since I Am Groot may be the only new Guardians of the Galaxy content for a while.
In conclusion, the potential for I Am Groot season 3 in the MCU is promising, with the popularity of the series and a wealth of storylines to explore. Fans can look forward to more adorable and entertaining adventures with Groot in the future.
