He recorded 18 disposals in a round 1 loss against Greater Western Sydney when the season began in late March, but under extraordinary conditions imposed on the league as a result of the rapid progression of the coronavirus pandemic into Australia.
In what the league planned would be the first of a reduced 17-round season, the match was played without crowds in attendance due to public health prohibitions on large gatherings and with quarter lengths reduced by one fifth in order to reduce the physical load on players who would be expected to play multiple matches with short breaks in the second half of the year. Just three days later, the AFL Commission suspended the season for an indefinite period after multiple states enforced quarantine conditions on their borders that effectively ruled out the possibility of continuing the season as planned.
After an 11-week hiatus, Stewart contributed 20 disposals in a round 2 win over Hawthorn when the season resumed in early-June. Stewart would play in all 4 of Geelong’s 2020 finals including the 2020 AFL Grand Final, where Geelong would go down by 31 points to Richmond.

Already contracted until 2021, Stewart would go onto to sign a new contract which would add three years to his existing deal keeping him at Geelong until the end of 2024.
Stewart entered the 2021 AFL season ranked in the ‘elite’ category among the league’s defenders by the AFL’s official statistical partner Champion Data. Stewart’s 2021 season shaped to be his best season yet. His numbers in disposals and marks were at a career high. He was named in the AFL media’s mid-season All-Australian team on a back pocket. In round 14, Stewart had a career best game in Geelong’s after the siren win to the Western Bulldogs.
In the match, Stewart tied the record for the most intercept marks in the last 20 years, with 10, and had 15 intercept possessions in total. It wasn’t just about his defensive efforts however; finishing with 27 disposals and six score involvements, he was able to launch several Cats attacks, including one last-quarter goal. Stewart was praised by many after the game including his coach, “It’s one of the best games I’ve seen a half-back flanker play,” Chris Scott said post-game.
For his effort he received 9 AFL Coaches Association Player of the Year votes. On the 14th August Stewart injured his foot at training in a marking contest. The 28 year old underwent surgery after suffering Lisfranc damage. This meant that Stewart would miss the rest of the season, including Geelong’s finals series.
