Marvel’s Emmy plans for their recent Disney Plus series have been confirmed by Variety and seem to suggest no second seasons are lined up for either Hawkeye or Moon Knight.
Both Hawkeye and Moon Knight have been submitted by Marvel in the limited series categories. Entry criteria for this category states: “The program must tell a complete, non-recurring story, and not have an ongoing storyline or main characters in subsequent seasons.” Alongside these two series, Marvel are submitting Loki in the drama categories, rather than as a limited series. Given Loki‘s post-credits reveal that “Loki will return in Season 2,” it appears the deciding factor has been the confirmation of a second season.
While Moon Knight, which stars Oscar Isaac in the title role, has been billed as a limited series all along, it had not been confirmed that this was also the plan for Hawkeye, which stars Jeremy Renner and Hailee Steinfeld. Of course, this isn’t official confirmation that neither show will ever receive a second season, but it does appear to suggest there are currently no plans in development at Marvel for a Season 2 of either of these Disney Plus series. If neither show receives another season, it will raise question about the future of Moon Knight and Kate Bishop’s Hawkeye in the MCU and whether they will only be appearing in supporting roles in Marvel’s crossover movies.
As well as Hawkeye, Moon Knight and Loki, Marvel are also submitting What If…? to the Emmys in hopes of securing the title of outstanding animated program. A second season of What If…? is already in production and a spin-off, Marvel Zombies, has also been announced.
Moon Knight recently released the third of its six episodes on Disney Plus. Here is the official synopsis for the series:
The series follows Steven Grant, a mild-mannered gift-shop employee, who becomes plagued with blackouts and memories of another life. Steven discovers he has dissociative identity disorder and shares a body with mercenary Marc Spector. As Steven/Marc’s enemies converge upon them, they must navigate their complex identities while thrust into a deadly mystery among the powerful gods of Egypt.
Starring Oscar Isaac, May Calamawy, Karim El Hakim, F. Murray Abraham, and Ethan Hawke. The first two episodes of the new MCU series is now available to stream on Disney Plus, with new episodes dropping every Wednesday.
