The 2018–19 Pro Tour season is the twenty-fourth Pro Tour season. It started on 21 September 2018 with the 2018 World Championship.

It is a transitional season, with Pro Tours changing name to Mythic Championships in 2019; the phasing-out of the Pro Points system following Grand Prix Seattle on June 23, 2019; the final World Magic Cup event; and the final Pro Tour Team Series season. The first event of the season, Pro Tour Guilds of Ravnica, did not award Mythic Points, making it an aberration as the results did not count towards Worlds.

With the introduction of Magic Arena, there were three additional Arena Mythic Championships interwoven to the four tabletop Championships in the year. While the system was designed to arrange itself into the calendar year, this plan was reversed going forward, which resulted in 17 month season alongside a partial 7-month season in 2020. The season will culminate in the 2019 World Championship that will be held in February 2020.

As another result of this length, there were two Hall of Fame inductions - once at Pro Tour Guilds of Ravnica for Seth Manfield and Lee Shi Tian, and once at Mythic Championship Richmond for Reid Duke.
