It was supposed to be one and done. The Disney+ adaption of Moon Knight was always regarded as a one off, limited series. However it left things on a cliff hanger and, well, this is Disney and Marvel. The content consumption is constant. The maw needs feeding.
So it is not completely surprising that Moon Knight executive producer Mohamed Diab and the lead star Oscar Isaac have seemingly confirmed that there will be a second season. As suual, this wasn’t done via an official announcement. Instead it was via TikTok and suddenly we feel very, very old.
On Diab’s TikTok account, someone asks if there will be a second season of the show. Isaac leans into frame and asks:
“Why else would we be in Cairo?”
The show did big numbers on Disney+, and ended with the appearance of yet another multiple personality for Marc Spector to deal with.
The fan-favorite was always Marvel’s answer to Batman but the first season got bogged down in a lot of Egyptian deity mumbo-jumbo when all we wanted to see was Moon Knight kicking ass. Will a second season deliver that promise?
The first season featured Ethan Hawke as villain Arthur Harrow, F. Murray Abraham as the voice of Khonshu, May Calamawy as Layla, and the late Gaspard Ulliel. It told the story of Steven Grant, a mild-mannered gift-shop employee, who becomes plagued with blackouts and memories of another life.
Head writer and executive producer Jeremy Slater (The Umbrella Academy) tapped Diab as co-producer and director of much of the series. The executive producer roster was made up by Isaac, along with Marvel usual suspect Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito and Victoria Alonso. Brad Winderbaum, Grant Curtis, Trevor Waterson, and Rebecca Kirsch were also in for points.
