Moon Night Season 1 ended on May 4th, the 6th episode of the MCU series hit Disney+.
As the first season of the Marvel series draws to a close, there’s usually some sort of spin-off or second season news on the horizon, with Loki immediately announcing that we’ll get a Season 2 in its final episode of season 1.
In concluding Moon Night, a glamorous finale scene offered lots of twists and turns and left the door open for future adventures featuring the show’s characters, creating a lot of talk about a possible Season 2.
However, director Mohammad Diab has made it clear that Season 2 of Moon Night is up in the air.
“We don’t know if there is a next season,” Diab told.
“Marvel doesn’t go with a conventional way, so even if they like the character and want to expand the world, it could be Season 2, it could be a standalone movie, or he could join another superhero ride,” he added.
“I’ve been kept in the dark, just like the fans,” Diab added. “We never discussed it a Season 2, but one day it’s going to be an expansion, but I don’t know what it will be like.
“However, after an official tweet promoting the trailer for season 1’s final used the word “Series Finale” before replacing it with “Season Final,” rumors of a second season took social media by storm.
So, will Moon Night rise again? Here’s what you need to know about a possible Moon Night Season 2.
Will Marvel’s Moon Knight be back for 2nd season?
As it now stands, Disney has only projected Moon Knight as a limited series, which will not offer a 2nd season.
And in an interview, Moon Night’s actor Oscar Isaac confirmed that there are no tough sequel plans.
However, the post-credit scene of Moon Night introduces us to Jake Lockley – the 3rd major Moon Night personality – so it is clear that Marvel wants to take the character of Moon Night’s story forward.
It remains to be seen, however, whether this will be in the form of a follow-up Disney Plus series, or whether the character may appear in another MCU project up front.
Despite the rumors on social media, we don’t know if Moon Night will return. But in a universe where Marvel can bring 3 generations of Spider-Man, we can certainly keep cross our fingers.
Even if we do get a 2nd season, at that point the next instalment would likely take at least a couple of years to appear.
Which of the Moon Night’s cast is likely to return for 2nd season?
Possible returnees include Moon Night cast members:
- Oscar Issac as Moon Knight (Marc Spector/Steven Grant/Jake Lockley)
- May Calamawy as Scarlet Scarab (Layla El-Faouly)
- F Murray Abraham as Khonshu
Oscar Isaac had previously told Variety that his Marvel contract expired after Moon Knight’s 6th episode, meaning he isn’t obliged to return for future MCU projects.
However, recently talking about how there is no tough sequel plan, Isaac said that he will definitely be open to playing the role again.
“So, you know, if there was a story that really made sense, I’d be happy to be part of it,” Issac said.
“I love being Steven,” he added. “I just love it. It’s just like, physically, it’s so much fun to be him.
However, in the post-credit scene Harrow is killed-off, we suspects that he’ll return – but we can’t blow it away.
Plot speculation of Moon Knight’s season 2
There is still no word on the details of the plot of the 2nd season of Moon Night.
However, we can visualize that Jack Lockley, the 3rd major personality of Moon Knight, could play a significant role in future episodes.
Even if 2nd season doesn’t come to fulfilment, and Moon Knight appears in other Marvel stories moving forward, we can certainly picture some big MCU crossovers.
Is there a Moon Knight’s 2nd season trailer?
Hold your water! It’s too early to expect new footage for Moon Knight’s 2nd season.
