It doesn’t appear that the XFL will be returning to television anytime in the immediate near future.
PWInsider reports that the current plan is to have the league return in 2020. This will give them time to build the proper infrastructures for a proper launch. This would include the hiring of coaches, players and other jobs needed to successfully kick off the league.
When the XFL launched the first time, it was done within a year’s time. It appears Vince McMahon’s Alpha Entertainment wants to make sure all the bases are covered this time around to prevent any disasters.
