Marinette and Adrien: Do They End Up Together?

Last Updated on December 26, 2020

Warning: Does Contain Spoilers for Season 3 of Miraculous Ladybug for Chat Blanc and later episodes. But no worries! This post will explain the future of our Marinette and Adrien. At least, some major theories that have been going on since this show started and stated facts from the creators.

I decided to start re-watching all the episodes I had missed and enjoyed them, until I saw that the spoilers for Chat Blanc and Feliz were already out. As SOON as there was an English dub, I went for it and gobbled the episode down before bursting into tears. But before I get into too much of it and why this series has left me in tears, not to mention Marinette and Adrien’s fate, I thought I would mention a few things I loved about this episode (Chat Blanc).


“It’s bigger on the inside.” Thank you, Doctor Who reference.

Okay, onto the angst…

First off, I would rather the Gorilla be Adrien’s Father than Gabriel at this post because I’m still fuming after watching Chat Blanc. He cared enough for Adrien to let him go after Marinette and numerous times throughout the show has let Adrien go see his friends.

Of course, there’s even more angst. Because our precious sunshine child can’t seem to have an easy life. Seriously, we all wanted to know how he wasn’t a super villain and now we got to see him as one.

I mean, Plagg IS the kawami of destruction. But dang…I’m glad he’s still mostly our Adrien.

Even as Chat Blanc, he hesitated on using his powers on Marinette/Ladybug.

Look at a screenshot theory from the episode here. Credit to familyagrestefanblog (link here) for making this first. They put it best.

So, first off, I HATE Gabriel Agreste. My answer to their timeline so that Marinette and Adrien can be together is to just kill him. Maybe throw him into space with the trash like the Mayor tried to do in an earlier episode. With trash, not Gabriel.

Back in “The Gorilla”, when he chucked Adrien out the roof, he was seen to at least be slightly anxious, severely hoping that his son would transform into Chat Noir (which was merely a theory at the time, so he wanted to check it out) But here? He learns that his son really is Chat Noir, but not only does he use it for his own advantage, he acts like a cold-blooded villain to his first-born child. He exploits his findings. And is just pure evil.

Should Marinette and Adrien End Up Together?

“I would wish to fix everything so we can be in love again!” Can ya’ll believe #chatblanc is canonically a yandere??? Well, yeah. I mean after EVERYTHING he went through, it would make anyone become one.

Okay, I’m all for them ending up together. The creators have confirmed that they ARE canon and will be together by the end of the show(whether that’s season 5 or 6, we don’t know). But in the latest episode for Chat Blanc, we saw one version for what would happen if Adrien found out first. And it almost destroyed the timeline. Because of stupid freaking Gabriel Agreste. Seriously, can’t they just kill him?

Okay, fine, murder is wrong. I’m all for just sending him to rot in prison instead but I want them to do it BEFORE Adrien has to hurt anymore. In ONE episode, he was dumped, learned his mother was in house AND his father was Hawkmoth. It’s no wonder he broke.

He needs his happy ending!

I mean, LOOK at how he looked at Marinette. MARINETTE, not just Ladybug. They were perfect together. It was everything we wanted them to be and Hawkmoth had to go and freaking destroy it. Nathalie isn’t in the clear, either. She’s the one who TOLD Gabriel that his son was Chat Noir. She may be awesome at martial arts but she’s a turd and needs to leave Adrien alone.

Thankfully, this is just Season 3. Season 5 has been confirmed and there was talk of a season 6. Which means they still have time to fall together naturally. Thomas Astruc has confirmed that Marinette and Adrien will end up together(without any oblivio crap happening) by the end of the show, so we’ll have to rely on that. We know that there WILL be a reveal that won’t leave us in angry tears. In the meantime, I’m sobbing and re-reading fanfiction to get over this depressing anger.

Here are two CONFIRMED sources showing that Adrien and Marinette WILL end up together and are end game

  5. Chat is french for cat they were just using the french word for Cat was all.

  6. Really?? Is that true? And are those two gonna end up together???

  7. i dont know who wrote this article but it it cat blanc not chat blanc

  8. I hope you speed things up my little sister and I are on the break of not watching it anymore because adrian and kgamie… I mean come on a a fighter out the wazoo come up and she is licking adrian. Adrien deserves marianeete. They deserve to be left alone
    Cat blanc need to happen Without skinny boy gabriel and bunny lady interupting the show

  9. sometimes us teens get made fun of for watching the show because its a “kids show”


  11. I was horrified to see Adrian and kagami together .Same goes with Marinette and luka.I just hate it. Adrian and Marinette have to come together they are awesome fantastic and too cute together. They deserve it.

  12. i m truly happy to so many funs here and luckily coz i felt a bit awkward being obsessed with this show, its like my secret, nobody knows about, even if someone finds out, it will be like WHAT/?! HOW THE HELL YOU CAN JUST SPEND TIME FOR THIS, ITS NOT FOR YOU”, may be this right, but i cant stop it, i just felt in love with this Miraculous)) and of course it cant end up without so awaited pairing of Adrion and Marinette, it would be just the upset of century((

  13. I am so happy to see I’m not the only adult here obsessed with this show. Serious my favorite of all time “kids” show. This is the one show I can stand to watch. I was so hooked after the first season. Can not wait for the next season in 2021. I will die if marrinete and Adrien are not end game.

  14. i will be so angry if marrinette and luka end up together (same goes with adrien and kagami) marrinette and adrien are made for each other and btw i was having the same reaction as first episode i thought this is just a stupid kids show and after one seoson i was like NEXT EPISODE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!KISS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  15. Yes there is! It is going to come out by 2021.

  16. Is there a season 5? Because I want Adrien and Marinette to end up together but I just watched the last episode ( miracle queen bee) and I hated the ending when Marinette and Adrien didn’t end up together

  17. do you know if there is gonna be a season 5?because I just watched the last episode ( miracle queen bee part 2) and I got so upset when I saw Adrien and kugami and Marinette and luka and I really want Adrien and Marinette to end up together

  18. Yes you are right I also looooooooove this show but when cat noir and ladybug noo thier identities

  19. I was so upset when Gabriel aka Hawk Moth found out, he ruined everything! Everything was going so well, they were finally in love and then Natalie HAD to tell her boss(I secretly believe she loves him) that Adrien is Cat Noir and then everything just went downhill from there. I kinda grinned like an idiot when Chloe screamed her infamous line, “This is ridiculous utterly ridiculous!” When she saw Marinette run up to Adrien to give him a hug.

    Also hawk mother just needs to die, they need to kill him off!


    • oh Natalie TOTALLY loves Gabriel. I don’t know how that mess will play out by the end but I’m still mad at them both for ruining such a happy relationship (adrien and marinette) over their own personal gain.

  20. I watched this show once and was addicted. I was literally crying nearly when master fu forgot everything as he is such a kind and caring character. I personally disagree with him forgetting everything so I would recommend him coming back in the show from some potion or whatever I have not figured how yet. Can’t wait for more episodes!

    • I was sad as well. Not to mention, with Marinette being the new guardian, if/when she tops being the guardian when she’s master Fu’s age, won’t that mean she’ll forget Adrien/Chat Noir? It breaks my heart to think about. Forgetting the ones you love is just one of the saddest things to me.

      Be right back, ugly crying and need fanfiction to remind myself there can be a different ending!

  21. Oh my goodness, it’s so good to know that I am in good company of wanting Cat Noir and Lady Bug together. I do like Luka and maybe Kagami (she’s so boring and is not the right fit for Adrien). But Adrien and Marinette belong together. My kids laugh at me because I’m so obsessed with this show. I can’t wait for Hawk Moth and Mayura to be destroyed. I hate her for being stupid and allowing herself to be used by Hawk Moth who will never love her.

    • oh man, Natalie just was ruined for me in Chat Blanc. She intentionally hurt Adrien by telling his Dad that he was Chat Noir and I don’t know if I can forgive her for that. She’s in love with a crazed man who is still in love with his comatose wife.

  22. Stupidly enough, I had just caught up with the show again to see them go their separate ways, Adrian and kagami, and Mari and Luca. Safe to say I was in tears as soon as that happened I was crying very VERY angry tears by the end of the episode

  23. Do you have any link about the authors saying they will end together by the end of the show?

  24. Same here! I watch this with my 3 year old and have become totally obsessed with it.

  25. WAIT WHAT season 4 and 5 have come out already i was waiting for season 4 FOR AGES, anyone know where i can watch them 🙂

  26. I originally started watching this with my toddler because it’s something we can watch together in French, and have become completely obsessed with it.

    I was DEVASTATED by the end of season 5. What an absolute WASTE of a love story they’ve been trying to set up for 60+ episodes. I can’t tell you how comforting it is to know that they’ll end up together eventually…we just need to be patient! Thank you for writing this article!


  28. Omg I feel exactly the same… I’m 16 and when I saw the last episode of the season 3, I cried so much ! I really hope they will end up together by the end of the show or I think I’m gonna get depressed for the rest of my life Imao

    I Love this show i want that Adrian and Marinette end up together and revole their identity to only them

  30. I want Adrian/catnoir Mari/ladybug t end up together Kagami and him are a terrible match!!!

  31. It is a fantastic way to entertain the kids miraculous is my favourite cartoon in the world.

  32. I didn’t even know there was a season 4, 5 or 6. Does anybody know where i can watch them?

  33. i didn’t even know there was a season 4, 5 and 6. Where can i watch them. Does anybody know?

  34. I watched season 1 and 2 again and watched season 3 for the first time recently, and I am so sad right now. Just knowing that if they fell in love and know one another’s identities they could destroy the whole world or they may have to give up their miraculous makes me so sad. I was literally crying over all the episodes, especially Cat Blanc. I couldn’t believe Gabriel could do that to Adrien, I really thought he cared about him because of the Gorizilla episode and had some faith in him, now I don’t know what to think. I also was disappointed in Chloe, I really believed that she could be good and then she works with Hawk Moth and now Master Fu is no longer the Guardian of the Miraculous. I really hope Ladybug/Marinette and Cat Noir/Adrien get together during the show and not at the end. I want to see their relationship progress and for them to finally be with one another and be happy! They are literally my children and I love them so much. I also hope if this series ever ends they bring it back with them as adults, as seen in season 3 with adult Alix. This is by far my favorite show in the world and I find it so funny how it is listed as a kid show when I am a 15 year old with a deadly obsession. I just want season 4 to get released already, but realizing that it may take 6 months or more makes me so sad honestly. I love this show and the characters, the animation, and the storyline I just hope we get to see Marinette and Adrien discover one another’s identities and for them to be together without any problems. I do feel if Marinette discovered Adrien is Cat Noir she would’ve handled it much differently but at the same time they could only be together as Ladybug and Cat Noir and not as their true selves. This show really has me in my feels and I wish it could just last forever, but as they say all good things must come to an end :(.

  35. Master Fu, ” Those two are made for each other.”
    This has to happen otherwise I’ll be so so upset . They look so good together.

  36. I think the ending of the very last episode was total BS I don’t think a single person wanted Adrian to go with Chan and Marinette to go with Luca. They’ve said many times Cat Noir and Ladybug were meant to be and how Cat Noir is absolutely in love with Ladybug, you can’t just fall out of love. I wish Marinette/Ladybug just knew it was Adrian the whole time, she kept rejecting him over and over and didn’t give him a chance. Technically they could’ve told eachother their identities, they would just have to be careful not to transform into their abilities in front of Hawk Moth. (Like shown in chat Blanc). Speaking of chat Blanc I don’t see why Alex would start disappearing. Ladybug defeated ‘Cat Noir’ she could just do it again in the future. However she was stone, but she could use her memory. She has never lost and she didn’t seem like she struggled too hard with defeating Cat Noir. I am totally expecting a season 6 since they absolutely deserve to be together and please no ‘loss memory’ crap. Where they actually fall for eachother. Technically they did but different sides of them. Ladybug should’ve given cat noir a chance and realize Adrian and cat noir are similar since they’re the same person. I don’t know about the whole being forced to be broken up. They could just talk on the phone or something idk. They just have to be careful knowing each other’s identity and not transform while in the open. Thank you & please make a season 6. I will go continue my angry cries. I am really hoping for a season 6. Your fans want the ending that seemed like was promised in the show. Thank you again.

  37. They have to make a season 6 I want to see them going out on a date. I mean come on that would be a great episode. Marinette stumbling with her word would be great and hilarious. (Not to mention what of the other powers they can do we only saw two of them)
    P.s I have never hid under my bed to watch anything until now. I love this show.

  38. I literally just caught up with the series and just watched Chat Blanc, and I’ve never thought a kids show could be this dark and traumatizing. Also, I purely think this episode was just a lame excuse to prolong Adrian and Marinette finally getting together. Honestly, it’s getting old I’m sick of this bs. THIS SHOW CAN STILL BE ENTERTAINING WHILE ALLOWING ADRIAN AND MARINETTE TO LOVE EACH OTHER AND BE TOGETHER AS THEY RIGHTFULLY SHOULD. In conclusion, this is all I’m going to be thinking about for like forever until we finally get the new season.
