Moon Knight is one of the latest Marvel shows to debut on Disney+, featuring Oscar Isaac as the titular hero with multiple personalities.
The first season of the show introduced fans to the complex and mysterious world of Marc Spector, a former mercenary who becomes the avatar of the Egyptian moon god Khonshu.
The show also featured Ethan Hawke as Arthur Harrow, a cult leader and Moon Knight’s nemesis, as well as May Calamawy as Marlene Alraune, a museum curator and Marc’s love interest.
The first season of Moon Knight ended with a cliffhanger, as Marc and his alter ego Steven Grant managed to free themselves from Khonshu’s control, only to discover that there was a third personality, Jake Lockley, who was still under the god’s influence.
Jake, who was revealed to be the one who killed Harrow in the post-credits scene, also seemed to have a connection to a mysterious woman named Gina.
So, will there be a second season of Moon Knight? And if so, when will it premiere? Here’s everything we know so far about Moon Knight season 2 episode 1.
Will There Be a Moon Knight Season 2?
Officially, Marvel Studios has not confirmed that Moon Knight will continue with a second season. However, there have been some hints and rumors that suggest that the show is not over yet.
For one thing, Marvel Studios accidentally tweeted that the last episode of the first season was the “series finale” of Moon Knight, before deleting the tweet and replacing it with “season finale”. This could imply that the show is indeed planned to have more than one season, or at least that Marvel is considering the possibility.
Another clue comes from Oscar Isaac himself, who said in an interview with ComicBook.com that he had “some specific conversations” with Marvel about the future of his character, although he did not reveal any details.
He also said that he was open to returning as Moon Knight, either in another season or in a movie. “I love the character, I love the world, I love the people I worked with,” he said. “So, yeah, I would love to keep exploring it.”
Director Mohamed Diab also seemed confident that Moon Knight would return, and not just on the big screen. In a video shared in September 2022, he and Isaac teased that season 2 was in the works, when asked why they were in Cairo, Egypt. “Why else would we be in Cairo?” Isaac said.
One rumor indicated that season 2 of Moon Knight was set to come at some point before Avengers 5, which now gives the show almost three full years to return after Avengers 5 was delayed until May 1, 2026.
Moon Knight Season 2 Episode 1 Release Date
Assuming that Moon Knight does get a second season, it will most likely be a while until it premieres on Disney+, given the busy schedule of Marvel’s upcoming shows and movies.
The next two years are set to bring Loki season 2, Echo, Daredevil: Born Again, Agatha: Coven of Chaos, Ironheart, and more, while other shows like Wonder Man and Secret Invasion could also debut in that time frame.
Therefore, the earliest possible release date for Moon Knight season 2 episode 1 would be sometime in 2025, unless Marvel decides to fast-track the production.
However, if we follow the pattern of other Marvel shows that have been renewed for a second season, such as Loki and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, we can make a rough estimate based on the gap between the first and second seasons.
Loki season 1 premiered in June 2021, and season 2 is expected to arrive in late 2023, which means a gap of about two and a half years. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier season 1 premiered in March 2021, and season 2 is expected to arrive in early 2024, which means a gap of about three years.
Based on this, we can speculate that Moon Knight season 2 episode 1 could premiere in late 2024 or early 2025, if the show follows a similar timeline.
Of course, this is just a guess, and Marvel could surprise us with a different release date. Until then, we can only hope that Moon Knight will return soon, and that Marc Spector will find a way to deal with his multiple personalities and his connection to Khonshu.
