Today, Disney+ released the final episode of the Marvel Studios’ ‘Moon Knight’, the series which introduces us to Steven Grant, a mild-mannered gift-shop employee, who becomes plagued with blackouts and memories of another life, he 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.
There have been questions about if there will be a second season of ‘Moon Knight’ and currently Disney hasn’t confirmed if or when ‘Moon Knight” will continue with more seasons.
When the series originally debuted on Disney+ Oscar Isaac told Variety about his future in the MCU:
“I had heard of the golden handcuffs. Luckily, we all agreed that this [show] is what we’re going to focus on. This is the story. And if there’s any kind of future, I think it just depends on if people like it, if people want to see more, and if we find a story that’s worth telling.”
With Oscar Issac telling The Radio Times, about a potential return to our screens as Moon Knight:
“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.”
The first indication that ‘Moon Knight’ won’t return for a second season is that Disney has submitted the show in the limited series category at the Emmys. This is usually an indication that ‘Moon Knight’ will be a one and done show.
However, that doesn’t mean this is the end of Moon Knight inside the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as the ending of ‘Moon Knight’ and the post-credit scene in the finale, it has been left wide open for ‘Moon Knight’ to return.
‘Moon Knight’s’ director Mohamed Diab told Collider that “Moon Knight is staying, staying for a long time.”
There have been some shows that have been submitted to the Emmys as limited series and have gone on to have more seasons including ‘Big Little Lies’ and ‘Hornblower’.
But also, Moon Knight could easily appear in another series, that goes by a different name, such as how Daredevil appeared in “The Defenders”. And with Disney building up its own supernatural team involving Blade, Black Knight and Werewolf By Night, it’s likely that Moon Knight could appear in other Marvel films and Disney+ series.
