The XFL has an official return date. Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson announced that the football league will return in the spring of 2022.

"As owners, we’re proud to champion our XFL players, coaches, cities and fans into an electrifying 2022 season!," Johnson tweeted. "It’s an uphill battle - but we’re hungry, humble and no one will outwork us. A league of culture, passion & purpose."

Johnson partnered with RedBird Capital to buy the XFL in August. Johnson and RedBird Capital CEO Gerry Cardinale paid $15 million for the failed football league. They reportedly split the cost.
