Moon Knight Season 2 Release Date – “Moon Knight” is a Disney+ miniseries created by Jeremy Slater based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name. As part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe continuity, it follows Marc Spector and Steven Grant – two identities of individuals suffering from dissociative identity disorder – as they become embroiled in an Egyptian god mystery. Slater is a head writer, while Mohamed Diab leads the directing team.
Oscar Isaac stars as Marc Spector/Moon Knight; Steven Grant as Mr. Knight, May Calamawy as May Calamawy, Karim El Hakim as F. Murray Abraham; Ethan Hawke as Ethan Hawke; Ann Akinjirin as David Ganly; Khalid Abdalla as Gaspard Ulliel; Antonia Salib as Fernanda Andrade; Rey Lucas directed four episodes in October 2020 while Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead joined them as directors from January 2021 onwards respectively for two other episodes. Isaac used different accents to distinguish between Spector’s identities throughout filming, primarily in Budapest plus Jordan, Slovenia and Atlanta, Georgia locations.
Moon Knight’s first season was indeed met with mixed reviews, with some hailing the performances and darker tone while others critiqued its pacing and lack of character development. Nevertheless, its popularity and positive reception to certain aspects (such as Oscar Isaac’s performance) indicate there may still be interest in this character and potential for another season. Ultimately though, much will depend on who is available from the cast and crew, Marvel’s plans for their character’s future, and other Marvel projects’ successes.
Moon Knight Season 2 Release Date
As of March 2023, no release date for season 2 of Moon Knight has been announced. Production on the new season began in August 2022, and reports suggest it could arrive sometime during Spring 2023, following the same schedule as its predecessor or potentially in 2024.
On Actors on Actors, Oscar Isaac revealed his lack of familiarity with Moon Knight before taking on the role. Although he collected comics when younger, he had never encountered the character before then. Additionally, Oscar noted the difference in process between feature film and limited series as he portrays Moon Knight in the latter.
Moon Knight writer and producer Jeremy Slater shared his ambitions for the character with Total Film; however, he remains uncertain if Moon Knight will join Avengers. Slater noted that it ultimately lies with Kevin Feige as, Marvel’s boss, to make such decisions. If it were up to him alone, Moon Knight would undoubtedly be part of the Avengers team; however, he cannot guarantee this outcome.
Isaac revealed in a 2022 interview with Collider that there has yet to be an official announcement about a second season for Moon Knight. However, he expressed openness to continuing the story in the future. While it remains uncertain if another season happens, Feige has previously declared nothing is off limits within Marvel Cinematic Universe, so anything is possible.
Moon Knight Season 2 Plot Summary
The potential plotline for Moon Knight season two is expected to continue Marc Spector’s adventures as Moon Knight. In the first season, Moon Knight faced off against Harrow and his cultists; however, several other storylines could be explored in this sequel series.
While many fans would love to see Moon Knight face off against Werewolf by Night, the series could adapt the Shadow Knight storyline instead. In this arc, Marc’s brother Randall returns as the mighty Shadow Knight and transforms into an evil version of Khonshu’s avatar – Moon Knight! This plotline could add an exciting new dimension to the character while providing fans with an exciting direction for the series.
Moon Knight Season 2 Cast Details
Oscar Isaac is expected to return as the lead character in Moon Knight season 2, though which personality(s) he’ll play is unpredictable. F. Murray Abraham could possibly voice Khonshu, the moon god; Layla El-Faouly’s May Calamawy may make a return too, though Ethan Hawke likely won’t reprise his role as Arthur Harrow given his demise in season 1.
