Moon Knight has aired its six episodes and ended season 1 as of yesterday, but as with most of these Marvel Disney Plus series, the question of whether Moon Knight returns for season 2 is…nebulous, at best. Other Disney Plus shows transition into movies. Others are meant to be miniseries, which is how Moon Knight was once described. So what’s going on here?

The showrunner and cast, including star Oscar Isaac, have some thoughts on season 2, which does not officially exist yet, and may not come to pass, depending on what Marvel and Disney want to do. Spoilers follow.

Here’s Oscar Isaac, Marc/Steven/Moon Knight himself, speaking to RadioTimes:

“You know, I think we approached it as ‘this is the story.’ And let’s just put everything out on the table on this story. There’s definitely no official plans to continue it. I think it would depend on what the story is.”

“That being said, I love being Steven,” he said. “I just love it. It’s just like, physically, it’s so much fun to be him. So, you know, if there was a story that really made sense, I’d be happy to be part of it.”

This echoes the idea that Moon Knight was originally scripted as a miniseries, and yet the ending does seem to indicate there could be more to come.

Layla actress May Calamawy, who become an Egyptian superhero in the final part of the finale, also had similar thoughts:

“I’ve not heard anything. So if there [are plans], I’m yet to hear. If there were, I would, yeah, I’d consider returning. Of course.”

Showrunner Mohamed Diab seems to be pitching season 2 with a bit more enthusiasm, given how it ended, and who it introduced.

“Just imagine what’s to come,” he told Marvel.com. “I can’t wait to see what’s going to happen with the third completely different character with a completely different background.”

That is obviously something that would need a second season to flesh out. Diab also went on record talking about how they turned down a bunch of MCU cameos so they could exist as their own entity, rather than having fans trying to spot crossovers to the larger universe.

Again, Marvel is all over the place when it comes to plans for furthering its Disney Plus series. Only two shows so far, Loki and What If…? officially have second seasons coming. Hawkeye, despite high acclaim and second season potential, has had nothing announced about when the next time might be that we see Kate Bishop. But Moon Knight? Moon Knight is just asking for a season 2, even if the cast is being somewhat subdued about the prospect for now. We’ll see what Disney says after all the numbers come in, perhaps.
