The Watcher first took the spotlight in the MCU during Season 1 of 2021's What If...?, with the character serving as the narrator and guide for all nine alternate timeline episodes across the Multiverse.
And while he's already set to progress heavily as a character in future seasons of the MCU's first animated outing, the Watcher is far from limited in where he can go across the Marvel Studios timeline.
The Watcher's Unexpected Comeback on Disney+
In the trailer, Baby Groot took control of the Guardians' Benetar ship, blasting forward at full speed as he donned a tiny pair of goggles on his wooden head.
In the next shot, he flew past the Watcher, who looks ahead at the ship as it blasted its way through the cosmos.
The full trailer for I Am Groot Season 2 can be seen below, with the Watcher coming in at the 34-second mark:
What Role Will the Watcher Play in I Am Groot?
Looking at the first season of I Am Groot, the Watcher's role in this new season should be minimal after Baby Groot largely had the spotlight to himself last time around.
Fans could potentially get a small tease for the upcoming What If...? Season 2 should this series of shorts get particularly ambitious, but it shouldn't be expected at this point.
The big question now is just how involved the Watcher will be as Baby Groot takes on his next set of short adventures, especially with runtime already coming in short supply as it is.
Season 2 of I Am Groot will debut on Disney+ on September 6.
