This release candidate modifies the approach for defining async thunks inside of createSlice, and improves several bits of usage and implementation around selectors.

Note that we hope to release Redux Toolkit 2.0, Redux core 5.0, and React-Redux 9.0 by the start of December! (If we don't hit that, we'll aim for January, after the holidays.)

See the preview Redux Toolkit 2.0 + Redux core 5.0 Migration Guide for an overview of breaking changes in RTK 2.0 and Redux core.

The 2.0 integration branch contains the docs preview for the 2.0 changes. Not all changes are documented yet, but you can see API reference pages for most of the new features here:

npm install @reduxjs/toolkit@next

yarn add @reduxjs/toolkit@next


Async Thunk and createSlice changes

In earlier alphas, we added the ability to define async thunks directly inside of createSlice.reducers, using a callback syntax. However, that meant that createSlice had a hard dependency on createAsyncThunk, and importing createSlice would always include createAsyncThunk in an app bundle even if it wasn't being used.

In practice, we expect that most RTK users will use createAsyncThunk, either directly or as part of RTK Query. But, we take bundle size seriously, and didn't want to force all uses of createSlice to add the 2K for createAsyncThunk to a bundle if it isn't actually being used.

Since we expect that defining thunks inside of createSlice is a less-common use case, we've settled on a compromise. The standard createSlice method does not support calling create.asyncThunk() inside even if you use the callback syntax. Instead, you need to call buildCreateSlice() to create a customized version of createSlice with the async thunk capabilities built in, and use that:

const createSliceWithThunks = buildCreateSlice({
  creators: { asyncThunk: asyncThunkCreator },

const todosSlice = createSliceWithThunks ({
  name: 'todos',
  initialState: {
    loading: false,
    todos: [],
    error: null,
  } as TodoState,
  reducers: (create) => ({
    // A normal "case reducer", same as always
    deleteTodo: create.reducer((state, action: PayloadAction<number>) => {
      state.todos.splice(action.payload, 1)
    // A case reducer with a "prepare callback" to customize the action
    addTodo: create.preparedReducer(
      (text: string) => {
        const id = nanoid()
        return { payload: { id, text } }
      // action type is inferred from prepare callback
      (state, action) => {
    // An async thunk
    fetchTodo: create.asyncThunk(
      // Async payload function as the first argument
      async (id: string, thunkApi) => {
        const res = await fetch(`myApi/todos?id=${id}`)
        return (await res.json()) as Item
      // An object containing `{pending?, rejected?, fulfilled?, settled?, options?}` second
        pending: (state) => {
          state.loading = true
        rejected: (state, action) => {
          state.error = action.payload ?? action.error
        fulfilled: (state, action) => {
        // settled is called for both rejected and fulfilled actions
        settled: (state, action) => {
          state.loading = false

Selector Changes

createSlice now adds a selectSlice field to all slice objects. This simple selector assumes that the slice has been added at rootState[] (or rootState[slice.reducerPath] if defined). This is useful for basic lookups of the slice's state.

entityAdapter.getSelectors() now accepts alternate selector creators with customized memoization options.
