1. Miraculous World: New York
2. Miraculous World: Shanghai – Even though it was released in the middle of season 4, it falls after season 3 and before season 4 in terms of the timeline. The only reason why it was released during season 4 is due to the delays caused by COVID-19.
Season 4 premiered right around a year and a half after the conclusion of season 3, and that is the longest gap between each season of Miraculous.
