Season Two kicks off Saturday, March 11, with back-to-back episodes that place the two teams at odds with one another before they put aside their differences to face The High Evolutionary. Also, the accidental activation of an ancient weapon puts our heroes in the crosshairs of evil aliens.

There will also be six new two-minute shorts airing on Disney XD's app, YouTube channel and  video-on-demand platforms that follow the Guardians as they collect souvenirs while exploring Earth. The first episode shows the team attempting to leave Earth, but their spaceship the Milano is weighed down from all the collectibles Drax, Gamora, Star-Lord and Rocket Raccoon sneaked on board. Other Marvel characters set to guest-star in the shorts include M.O.D.O.K. and Man-Thing.

The second season of Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" premieres Saturday, March 11, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Disney XD.
