We're past the halfway point in Fortnite Season 8 so it's only natural that we start looking towards what's next and that includes the content of the Season 9 Battle Pass. Granted, we're well aware of the possibility that Chapter 3 is coming soon and could mean Season 9 is skipped over, but we're currently planning for both outcomes!

In the event that Season 9 is next up, we're going to take a look at what could feature as part of the Battle Pass and we'll keep you up to date with any developments we learn over the coming weeks.

Fortnite Season 9 Battle Pass Headliner

With each new season, the Battle Pass brings us well over 100 new items to earn across the base tiers, special tiers and 'secret characters'. We see no reason why Fortnite would change the formatting of the Battle Pass again so soon, especially when the current one is so well received.

When we look towards who will headline the Season 9 edition, we have to think big. Goku has been a rumoured addition for some time now and he could arrive sooner rather than later. It would continue a strong anime theme that will be added to with Naruto now confirmed as releasing in Season 8.

Beyond this, Spider-Man is also a strong candidate given that there are potentially game files that already point to his existence within the game files.

Fortnite Season 9 Release Date

Fortnite Season 9 will begin on or around Monday, 6 December. We know that the final day of Season 8 is Sunday, 5 December but we don't yet know how the transition will happen.


As we already mentioned, there is a belief that Chapter 3 could be next which may result in the black hole returning and a longer period once this season ends.

It's unlikely that servers will stay down too long though as Epic will want to capitalise on a busy period for them in December and compete with the likes of Halo, Battlefield and Call of Duty.
