Moon Knight is an American television miniseries based on the Marvel Comics superhero of the same name produced by Jeremy Slater for the streaming service Disney+. It is Marvel Studios’ sixth television series in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), and it follows the events of the films in the franchise. Mohamed Diab leads the directing crew, with Slater as the head writer.
May Calamawy, Karim El Hakim, F. Murray Abraham, Ethan Hawke, Ann Akinjirin, David Ganly, Khalid Abdalla, Gaspard Ulliel, Antonia Salib, Fernanda Andrade, Rey Lucas, Sofia Danu, and Saba Mubarak star alongside Oscar Isaac as Marc Spector / Moon Knight and Steven Grant / Mr. Knight, two alters of a man with dissociative identity disorder (DID). Slater was hired in November after the series was announced in August 2019.
In October 2020, Diab was hired to direct four episodes, with Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead following in January 2021 to direct the other two. At the time, Isaac had been cast in the lead role, and he employed a variety of accents to differentiate between Spector’s multiple personas. From April to October 2021, filming took place mostly in Budapest, as well as Jordan, Slovenia, and Atlanta, Georgia.
Is There Going to Be a Second Season of Moon Knight?
#MoonKnight As #OscarIsaac once said he can play anything from a Priest, Rabbi or a Minister but for me the sane Marc Spector, the soft Steven Grant or even the brutal Jake Lockley is enough for me to look into his potential.
A truly MARVELous performance !!

Aside from the apparent Twitter mishap, there has been no official confirmation from Marvel that Moon Knight will return for Season 2.
Moon Knight has been stated as a “limited series” by both Isaac and Hawke in interviews, making it more like WandaVision than Loki (which was given a second season before the first ended). Moon Knight will, however, return, and not just on the big screen, according to director Mohamed Diab. Diab detailed his reasoning in an interview with SFX.
Although it may sound more like a “wish” than a “truth,” the audience’s response to the series appears to be positive. Isaac’s Moon Knight is the freshes face in a cinematic universe nonetheless packed with familiar faces, and maybe that will be enough to keep the franchise alive.
When Will the Second Season of Moon Knight Be Released on Disney+?
If Moon Knight isn’t simply a phase, expect a second season to take at least a couple of years to come out. Because Marvel has more ideas than Marc does personalities, Moon Knight will have to wait in line behind all of the other new and returning shows set to premiere on Disney+.
Who Will Appear in The Second Season of Moon Knight?
Oscar Isaac admitted to Variety before his Marvel debut that he was “reticent” about joining the MCU:
He laughed, “I had heard of the golden handcuffs.” “Fortunately, we’ve all agreed that we’ll concentrate on this [show]. This is how it goes. And, if there is a future, I believe it will be determined by whether or not people enjoy it, whether they want to see more, and if we can find a compelling story to tell.”
Since then, Isaac has spoken openly about the potential of a second season with The Radio Times, noting that:
“I believe we approached it with the mindset of “this is the story,” and “let’s just lay everything out on the table.” There are no official intentions to keep it going. I believe it would depend on the story.”
But, as Isaac went on to remark, all hope is not lost: “Having said that, I adore being Steven. It’s fantastic. It’s almost as though being him is so much fun physically. So, if there was a tale that made sense, I’d be delighted to be a part of it.”
What Will Be the Plot of The Second Season of Moon Knight?
Moon Knight is purposefully strange and experimental, at least for Marvel, making it more difficult to predict what will happen next.
However, considering that Jake Lockley — the third major Moon Knight character – makes his first appearance in the post-credits sequence, we expect him to continue to play an important part in the future. But, in the eyes of the other alters, is he a friend or a foe? Jake is clearly someone you don’t want to mess with, as evidenced by the final “shot” in season one.
Brief allusions to legendary comic book villains like Bushman may also pay off in the future, but all of this is presuming Moon Knight returns for a second season.
We wouldn’t be surprised if Moon Knight — and possibly Layla as Taweret’s superheroic new avatar — only appeared in other MCU stories from now on, given the show’s lackluster reception and present status as a limited series.
And that could be a lot of fun. Moon Knight, like Batman, may be molded into a variety of styles depending on the writer at hand. So, while we can readily image the Fist of Khonsu fighting alongside street-level heroes like Daredevil, we can also imagine him facing off against – or alongside – the Avengers, depending on his mood.
When Can We Expect a Trailer for The Second Season of Moon Knight?
We keep begging Khonsu to hurry things up by fast-forwarding over the evenings, but even then, we don’t expect to see any new Moon Knight video for a while. That’s provided the show is renewed at all.
The first season of Moon Knight is now available on Disney+.
