The second season was officially confirmed in April 9, 2013 by FremantleMedia. It was confirmed that the second season would have more 26 episodes, each having around 23-30 minutes.
In December, two videos were released in FremantleMedia's official website and eventually they were found by fans. The trailers showed few deleted scenes from the second season, but it mostly featured scenes from the first season. The first trailer featured Kirby Kowalski narrating the events of the second season and giving a brief explanation about Max and Steel's relationship, and the second trailer mostly featured scenes about first season and reused the same scenes from the first trailer. The first trailer was also available in a DVD released in 2015 that came with the toys.
The second and official trailer was released first in the official website of Max and Steel and few days later on YouTube. In this version, the whole trailer focused in the events happening in the second season and announced the Ultralink Invasion app, which also spoiled few important details of episodes.
With the premiere of the second season, a new toy line was released by the end of 2013. It featured new characters and focused in the Ultralink Invasion, as the word "invasion" is seen in every title for every subline.
In Latin America, there were three sublines released, being those:
- Aerial Invasion: When the forces of evil launches their attack from above, Max Steel quickly transforms into Turbo Flight Mode and uses his amazing aerodynamic ablities. Max's T.U.R.B.O. Energy throws him to the space with lightning speed and powerful artillery-tech maintain the invasion under control.
- Aqua Invasion: The entire planet is under threat of invasions and even the oceans aren't safe. Max can use his amazing and turbofied maneuvers, being offensive or defensive, floating or submerged on the depths, successfully defending the oceans against the aquatic invasion.
- Land Invasion: Mega villains, monsters and mayhem are a part of the daily work for Max Steel, so when a ground invasion occurs, nor the most powerful invaders can fight against Max's T.U.R.B.O. Energy and sophisticated weapons that Max uses to protect Earth from all kinds of enemies.
Meanwhile, there were more 6 inch toys released worldwide. The toy line had the same time as Latin America's line, as each character came with a mini figure of an Ultralink and there was a panel labelled "Ultralink Invasion". After the second half of 2014, the toys becames slightly more sofisticated, gaining more articulation and details. There were other toys planned to be released, but they never hit the shelves due to unknown reasons.
- Toxzon, alongside with Extroyer, made only five appearences in this season, which are less appearences than in the previous season.
- In the finale of this season, the Ultralink Invasion accords.
- Max Steel unleashes new Turbo Modes, like Turbo Heat Mode, Turbo Rocket Mode, and Turbo Spike Mode.
- Steel unleashes his first Turbo Mode, Turbo Mimic Mode.
- Season 2 forced more into the Ultralinks than any other villain from the series.
- Unlike the first season, the second didn't aired on Disney XD.
- Before the actual premiere of Season 2, there were lots of rumors about a character named Dark Titan, that supposdedly would be Max's evil counterpart, having similar abilities with his own energy, as well an Ultralink similar to Steel. Electrix, Bio-Constrictor and Dragonelle were planned to return. However, Mattel, as well some of the workers, confirmed that there were no plans involving Dark Titan, nor other characters of the old series.
- The opening of the second season has a callback to Supermania when Max appears using his Turbo Super Mode.
