Miraculous Ladybug Watch Order

One of the things that fans of Miraculous Ladybug often talk about is the watch order of the series. That’s because there seems to be some sort of disconnect between the event timelines and where each episode falls.

In fact, a lot of fans have come up with their own episode watch orders based on what they have observed as far as which episode comes first. However, the important part here is that there is no need to go a lot into the details because you’ll still understand the series regardless of which episode in the season comes first. We decided to present you with the chronological watch order however as Thomas Astruc commented several times that this production order (the order in which the episodes were written and produced) represents the continuity the best. Enjoy!

1. Season 1 – Chronological order

Season 1 of Miraculous Ladybug first premiered in 2015 and concluded in 2016. It is the first season that tells the story of Miraculous. In some areas, season 1 of Miraculous premiered in 2017.

Note: The final episode, Volpina, was meant to be released as the finale of the season in terms of its story, and the original episodes were meant to be watched after. However, for the sake of continuity, it is best to watch the origins before the first episode.

3. Season 3 – Chronological watch order

Season 3 started premiering in December 2018, but it had a two-month delay that saw the next episode premiering in February 2019. Fans need to watch season 2 before season 3 because there are plenty of references to season 2 in this season. The season concluded in November 2019.
