This past week saw the release of the first episode of the new Disney+ Original series, “Ms Marvel”, which introduces Kamala Khan, a Muslim American teenager growing up in Jersey City. An avid gamer and a voracious fan-fiction scribe, Kamala is a Super Hero mega-fan with an oversized imagination—particularly when it comes to Captain Marvel. Yet Kamala feels invisible both at home and at school—that is, until she gets super powers like the heroes she’s always looked up to. Life gets better with superpowers, right?
“Ms Marvel” will consist of six episodes, and already there is chatter about a second season. So far, from the six Marvel series released on Disney+, only one show, “Loki”, has had a second season officially announced.
But we do know that Ms Marvel’s future isn’t confined to just a single Disney+ series, as the character will also be appearing in the upcoming “The Marvels” film, which will be arriving in cinemas on 28th July 2023, along with Captain Marvel and Monica Rambeau, who was introduced in the “WandaVision” Disney+ series.
Recently, during an interview with Deadline, “Ms. Marvel” producer Sana Amanat was asked about a potential second season:
“I’ll let you know if they call me. [laughs] Let’s see how the show does before you ask me about Season 2… I mean the thing is, the show is, as far as I know, I knew when we started that… Kamala was going to end up in The Marvels. I didn’t know what was going to happen in that movie because they rightfully didn’t tell me ’cause I’m a little chatterbox. But I knew that’s what we were building to. That she had to be [ready] by the end of our show to go and do whatever it is that’s going to happen in The Marvels. And what her future in the MCU after that, you know, we’re a few years out, I’m old. I might have retired by then, who knows. Who knows what’s gonna happen if there’s a Season 2 or not.”
And in another interview with Screen Rant, Sana Amanat also spoke about a potential second season.
“I hope there are. It is laid out as a limited series for her to go off and do other things. Like, it certainly establishes [her as a hero], she will be going into [The] Marvels next, so that’s kind of there. But I will say I really hope that she is a part… you know, I hope we get a Season 2 is all I’m gonna say. I hope we’re a part of that.”
No doubt the viewing numbers for “Ms Marvel” will have some input into a potential second season of “Ms Marvel”, and with Iman Vellani being so young and being an unknown actor, it’s much easier (and cheaper) to get her to appear in more seasons of “Ms Marvel”, than an established Hollywood actor like Oscar Isaac, Tom Hiddleston and Jeremy Renner.
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, has previously said that he wants characters to move between Disney+ series and films. He’s also said some Disney+ series are designed to be a single limited season, and other shows are planned to be multi-season shows.
Hopefully, we’ll find out more details about a potential second season of “Ms Marvel” soon, but until then, we’ve still got new episodes dropping onto Disney+ during the summer.
Would you like to see “Ms Marvel” return with more seasons?
