When does Diablo 3 Season 32 start?

Diablo 3 Season 31 has recently kicked off, bringing back the Forbidden Archives theme (aka Kanai’s Cube-o-Rama) to the chaotic enjoyment of all. That said, we know the wheel of the seasons constantly spins, so we ask it and ourselves: when can we expect the next Diablo 3 season? By our estimates, Diablo 3 Season 32 will start Friday, July 12, 2024.

Season 30 launched on January 12, 2024 and Season 31 kicked off on April 12, not only maintaining the three-month seasonal cadence that the Diablo 3 team announced but also triggering a really cool date phenomenon with 2024 as a leap year. Don’t worry though — it’s not a virtual Groundhog Day and we’ll break the cycle in the fall; we can expect future seasons to continue like this, every three months, bringing an old seasonal theme back to the game.

Future seasons will still have still have the Altar of Rites and Visions of Enmity, which were first introduced to the game in Season 28 and Season 29, respectively. Themes will rotate in from past seasons. However, while we can anticipate rewards, we can’t predict what theme will come up next as theme reuse has not been linear:

  • Season 30 reintroduced Season 25’s theme (the Lords of Hell) and granted Season 18’s Blood Shard portrait frame and All Hallow’s pennant, but no end of journey rewards.
  • Season 31 reintroduced Season 20’s theme (the Forbidden Archives) and grants Season 19’s full cosmetic rewards — the Eternal Woods portrait frame and Dream of Piers pet for completing Chapter 4 in the Season Journey, and the Valor portrait frames and Angelic Goblin pet for completing the seasonal journey.

So, while we can assume that Season 32 will grant the rewards of Season 20, we don’t know which returning theme will crop up. Maybe we’ll even see theme combinations again — the addition of Season 14’s double treasure goblin spawns to Season 15’s double Horadric Caches from bounties was quote enjoyable! For now, revel in the adventures of Season 31’s Kanai’s Cube-o-Rama. We’ll see you in Season 32, starting July 12.
