The 2020 Chicago Cubs season will be the 149th season of the Chicago Cubs franchise, the 145th in the National League and the Cubs' 105th season at Wrigley Field.

Following the 2019 season, the Cubs announced that Joe Maddon would not return as manager for the Cubs in 2020.[1] On October 24, 2019, the team announced that former Cub David Ross was hired as the team's next manager.[2]

The season will also serve as the debut season for the team's brand new cable television network, the Marquee Sports Network, which will debut in February 2020.[3] All Cubs games, except for those subject to national broadcasts (on FOX, TBS and ESPN), will be aired on Marquee all season long.[3]
