Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3 has only just been released, but some players will already be wondering just how long they have to enjoy the new wasteland theme and all the fresh content.

The game's current season is titled Wrecked, and takes inspiration from Mad Max and its desert wasteland aesthetic for the new area, while also introducing new cars and upgrades for them.

There's still plenty of time to complete the battle pass, defeat the bosses, and experience everything else in the newest season, but let's see when it's expected to end.

When does Chapter 5 Season 3 end?

Based on the timer on the battle pass screen for Chapter 5 Season 3, we can see that it's set to run out on Friday, August 16, 2024, meaning the season will likely end and introduce the next one that same day.

This is fairly standard for Fortnite seasons, as they tend to last a few months, with big content updates taking place throughout. 

What do we know about the next season?

We don't yet know what theme the next season will feature, or if it will kick off Chapter 6, but we'll learn more through leaks, datamining, and teasers as this season runs its course.

One big rumour is that Chapter 5 Season 4 will have a Marvel superhero theme, similar to Chapter 2 Season 4. Of course, Epic Games hasn't confirmed this theme, so take that with a pinch of salt for now.
