Marvel Indirectly Confirmed ‘Moon Knight’ Season 2 — Swaps Series Finale to Season Finale

Marvel fans have been in delight for the past few weeks as they enjoy the intriguing story in Marvel Studios’ newest Disney+ series Moon Knight starring Oscar Isaac, Ethan Hawke, and May Calamawy.

Five episodes have already been released to date, and the sixth and final episode will release on Wednesday, May 4, 2022. And with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness releasing just a few days later, on May 6, 2022, the MCU fans are surely in for a treat.

Additionally, the fans’ happiness has been getting higher after Marvel Studios indirectly gave a positive response to some fan queries about “Will Moon Knight return for Season 2?” Yes, it seems Moon Knight will return for a second season.

However, that might not have been the initial plan all along at the Marvel Studios office, as the show had been advertised as a six-episode event or limited series.

Besides, in mid-April 2022, Variety exclusively reported that the Marvel execs. had planned to submit their two Disney+ shows, Moon Knight and Hawkeye, for the limited series category at Emmy Awards.

As per the Television Academy rules and regulations, the official criteria to compete in limited series is: “The program must tell a complete, non-recurring story, and not have an ongoing storyline or main characters in subsequent seasons.”

But, it now seems like the plans have been changed for Oscar Isaac-led Moon Knight, just like it did with Tom Hiddleston and Sophia Di Martino-led Loki — which was ultimately revived for a second season, as revealed in the season finale’s mid-credits scene.

Now let’s talk about how Marvel seemingly confirmed Moon Knight season two. While releasing a short trailer for Moon Knight’s final episode, Marvel Studios’ official Twitter handle first used the words “epic series finale” in the caption, meaning Moon Knight would be a limited series.

The same thing was done by the official Twitter handles of Moon Knight and Disney+. But, just some minutes after those tweets were made, they were deleted, and another tweet was made with some changes.

Those three official Twitter handles changed only one thing — they replaced “epic series finale” with “epic season finale.” And that one subtle change led fans of the comic book-inspired show to wonder and express their views.

One enthusiastic fan wrote, “oh my @MarvelStudios, deleted the tweet that said, ‘SERIES FINALE’ are changed it to ‘SEASON FINALE.’ Please tell me we getting a season 2!!!!!  I need more Oscar Isaac, more more more!! #moonknight.”

“Calling it a ‘season finale’ as opposed to ‘series finale’ in the original tweet before it was deleted implies we’re getting another season….Moon Knight season 2 announcement incoming!” another fan wrote.

One fan did some research and tweeted, “With WandaVision and TFaTWS [The Falcon and the Winter Soldier] they always said ‘Finale of’ but for Moon Knight they first said ‘Series Finale’ then changed it to ‘Season Finale.’ Yeah, we’re getting a second season LESSSGOOOOO.”

Some fans have also been hoping to get a similar season two announcement as Marvel Studios did with Loki. Let’s hope everything turns out well.

As for what the future holds for the character of Moon Knight in MCU, Oscar Isaac – who plays the lead role of Marc Spector [aka Moon Knight] and his alter Steven Grant – told Variety, “We all agreed that this [show] is what we’re going to focus on. This is the story.”

As he went on, he mentioned that the future of Moon Knight depends on whether people like the show or not, if the audience wants to see more of the character, and if the production crew finds a story that’s worth telling.
