The series Moon Knight is an American show produced by Jeremy Slater for Disney+, a streaming platform. The show was adapted from Marvel Graphic Novels and followed the same timeline as the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies.
Marc Spector and Steven Grant are two alter personalities of a guy with DID (dissociative identity disorder), and the series follows their adventure. Isaac Slater is the show’s head writer, while Mohamed Diab is in charge of production. The tale concerns Egyptian gods who become involved in a puzzle that Marc and Steven must solve.
The first episode of Moon Knight aired on March 30, 2022, concluded on May 4, and lasted six episodes. The show was well-received, with particular praise paid to the acting (especially Isaac, Hawke, and Calamawy), the deeper tone compared to other Marvel series, and its portrayal of identity discontent.
About Moon Knight Season 2
It was announced in August 2019 that Moon Knight would be written by chief writer Slater, with Mohamed Diab hired in October 2020 to manage the production of the four episodes. Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson supervised the remaining two episodes.
Isaac was to play the part; he utilized a variety of accents to differentiate between Spector’s many personalities. Budapest served as the primary filming location throughout April through October 2021, along with Slovenia, Jordan, and Georgia (particularly in Atlanta).
When the series was released, it was labeled as a limited series. However, we think that may have changed after a tweet from the show’s official account described the season 1 finale as “series finale” instead of just “season finale.” This suggests that we’ll be getting a new season soon.
When Will Moon Knight Season 2 Be Released?
As of August 2022, there is no launch date for Moon Knight season 2. Isaac made it quite apparent that he views Moon Knight as just a one-off, not a continuing series.
“I don’t really know,” Slater responded honestly. “As Feige, the head of Marvel, makes all those decisions.” He continued, hinting that Moon Knight could become an Avenger one day soon. “Moon Knight would be a member of the Avengers if it were up to me—which it’s not—but I think that’s the intended outcome!” As things stand now, it seems doubtful we’ll see the second season of Moon Knight anytime soon—but as Feige has said before, with the Marvel Universe, you can never say never.
Our recent sources tell us that the new season of Moon Knight will premiere in 2023, although this is unconfirmed. Isaac and Mohamed Diab, who is believed to be working on the show, excited followers with a TikTok clip from Egypt which appeared to show production had already started on Season 2.
Moon Knight Season 2 Plot
Marc Spector offers his life to Khonsu, the Egyptian god of the moon, to preserve his own. He becomes his avatar yet also shares a physical body with Steven Grant. The Moon Knight TV series is the MCU’s initial introduction to Khonsu’s version, examining Egyptian folklore and psychological trauma.
It’s not one person; it’s two. Despite having the same physical structure, Stephen Grant and Marc Spector are two separate people. The former is a museum employee obsessed with Egyptian mythology, whereas the latter is a soldier.
Khonsu rescued Marc on the condition that his body would become the god’s incarnation and serve as a human guardian for nocturnal travelers.
Where To Watch Moon Knight Season 2?
Moon Knight season 2 is the original series and can only be watched on the Disney+ platform.
Moon Knight Season 2 Cast
If Moon Knight is given a second season, Oscar Isaac would likely continue playing the iconic masked hero. That means Marc and Steven would also probably return.
It’s also possible that Moon Knight will need his protector deity once he returns. As a result, F. Murray Abraham would likely reprise his role as Khonsu, the moon god. Layla El-Faouly, played by May Calamawy, will also be hard to part with.
Arthur Harrow, the only Moon Knight figure we don’t see returning, at least not significantly, is Ethan Hawke’s. Even though we’ve enjoyed the glass-crunching lunatic, we don’t see Hawke agreeing to do any more Marvel-related work, and you know he was shot in the head.
What To Expect From Moon Knight Season 2?
The Moon Knight’s new season storylines have yet to be revealed.
Even though he isn’t one of the three most important Moon Knight characters, Jake Lockley could have a significant role in upcoming episodes. It would be weird to introduce a third identity in the season finale but not mention it again. Is Jake for or against the other personalities? He seems dangerous, based on what happened at the end of season 1.
It’ll be interesting to see how Moon Knight’s appearances in the recent seasons will impact his future. Short allusions to major Marvel Comics characters like Bushman are possible in the season, but whether or not Moon Knight makes it past Season 1 is up to chance.
Moon Knight Season 2 Trailers
