Vengeance and justice may be coming back.

The first season of Moon Knight was a satisfying treat that left fans wanting more. While there may be still no news about it, we are hoping that the next season will be picked up. Here is everything we know about Moon Knight Season 2.

Moon Knight Season 2 Release Date: When Will the Second Season of Moon Knight Come Out?

There is still no set release date for Moon Knight Season 2.

The series has yet to get its green light, which means there are no updates on when the series will be coming out.

The first season of Moon Knight premiered on March 30, 2022, and if the second season follows the same trend, it may premiere sometime in early 2024 at the earliest.

Recently, this month, Moon Knight director and executive producer Mohamed Diab spoke to Arabic Marvel (an interview translated to English by The Cosmic Circus) about the potentiality of a second season coming to fruition:

"Marvel has determined it from the first day. Marvel's series projects are all six episodes except for special projects like WandaVision. The usual format is six episodes. Loki is the only series they said will be in two parts from the first day."

Considering that Marvel's big boss Kevin Feige even previously confirmed they always end up planning the future phases of the MCU ahead of their release, here's what Diab had to say about their plans for a possible Season 2:

"Marvel's way is not the usual way where if the project succeeds, I say let's renew it for a second season. It's their plan, successful or not, they have a plan."

To reiterate, the MCU's current plans for the next two years revolve around Loki Season 2, Echo, Daredevil: Born Again, Agatha: Darkhold Diaries, and Ironheart, with Wonder Man following closely right after.

Moon Knight Season 2 is not yet approved, so we do not know when the series will start shooting. We have been receiving mixed messages about the status of the season.

In an interview Isaac made with the RadioTimes, he talked about his arrangements with Marvel:

"You know, I think we approached it as, ‘This is the story, and let’s just put everything out on the table on this story'. There’s definitely no official plans to continue it. I think it would depend on what the story is. I love being Steven. I just love it. It’s just like, physically, it’s so much fun to be him. So, you know, if there was a story that really made sense, I’d be happy to be part of it."

A TikTok post from user @hayaattiaaa in August showed Oscar Isaac and Mohamed Diab giving fans hope:

The question on everyone’s mind: is there a Season 2?” She asked.

“Why else would we be in Cairo?’ was Isaacs's enthusiastic response.

By October, in a different interview with Collider, Isaac readdressed his statements about Moon Knight Season 2.

"We can’t definitively say that. I need my teasing abilities. Can’t drain me of those. What a cock tease I am. Always been.
"No, I hope so. We’ll see what happens. But at the moment, there’s no official word… Moon Knight was so amazing, but also so incredibly draining. I just put every bit of myself into that.
"Every bit of output I could. That it’s just been a year of input, just taking stuff in as opposed to having to put anything out other than headphones. So at the moment, I’m going to do a play next year and then we’ll see what happens after that."

Back in 2022, head writer Jeremy Slater told The Playlist that he "honestly has no idea" if a Season 2 is even possible.

He added, "I haven't had any conversations with Marvel. I think a lot of those decisions are ultimately going to be in the hands of Kevin Feige because he's the guy with the master plan."

Oscar Isaac may reprise the leading roles (yes, roles) in the series. He may still be playing American Mercenary Marc Specter and British nerd Steven Grant, along with playing their superhero alter egos, the caped Moon Knight and the suited Mr. Knight.

In an interview with Deadline, Isaac talks about taking a creative leap with Moon Knight:

"I felt like there was an opportunity to do something super unusual, on a massive stage, with these incredible resources. To find a way to do this strange character study and have this weird, psychedelic journey that's ultimately about trauma, and to do that within this genre and this framework just seemed like too good of an opportunity to pass up.
"You kind of pour your heart into the things you do for the sake of doing it - not even for the result. You put that stuff in there out of a sense of play and a sense of fun and excitement because it means something to you, and whether that shows up literally on camera is kind of beside the point.
"I think the idea is that it infuses depth. You just feel the depth of it. All the detail, all the texture, all of that stuff, someone in a rush — which you definitely were always in — you could kind of let that stuff fall to the side, especially when you have six hours of the show to make, which is always just so wild. And to still find the space and the interest to infuse everything you could with some sort of meaning, it's just so great."

Aside from Isaac, the cast of the second season may potentially include May Calamawy as Layla El-Faouly. We may also still hear F. Murray Abraham as the voice of Khonshu.

We may also meet more Egyptian gods in the second season, with Antonia Salib potentially still voicing the cutest hippopotamus goddess, Tawaret.

Moon Knight Season 2 may still be based on the comic created by Doug Moench and Don Perlin.

Jeremy Slater created the show for television, however, on October 18, 2023, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that the Moon Knight head writer Jeremy Slater left the project, which could lead to the doom of ever seeing Moon Knight Season 2 come to fruition.

We may see the directors return for Season 2, including Mohamed Diab, Justin Benson, and Aaron Moorhead.

Moon Knight Season 2 Plot: What Will be the Plot of the Second Season of Moon Knight?

The post-credits scene on the last episode of the first season showed us what happened to Arthur Harrow and Ammit.

When Marc Specter chose to let Ammit and Arthur live, it felt like a good setup for Season 2, with Ammit returning seeking vengeance. But then, we see Arthur picked up from the mental institution he was housed in by a mysterious figure.

After being unceremoniously thrown into a limousine, he is greeted by Khonshu, who introduces the mysterious figure as Jake Lockley - Marc Specter’s second alter and the third person to inhabit the body.

Jake decides to finish off the job, killing Arthur before driving away.

Moon Knight seemed like Marvel’s shot at producing an experimental series, successfully interweaving Egyptian mythology into an unpredictable storyline that somehow still makes sense by the end. Following this line of thought, it can be quite difficult to speculate which direction Season 2 will take.

Moon Knight is also a very flexible superhero who can easily adapt to different stories and styles, depending on which writer will be taking the lead on each project. Since they are also a part of an even wider Marvel universe, anything is possible with Moon Knight.

We can imagine them being a part of the Avengers or even being a villain fighting against other Marvel superheroes, depending on which personality is holding the helm of the body.

Jake Lockley has the most potential to be the villain, especially since he seems to be the most violent personality out of the three.

Lockley’s existence may be a crucial plot point in season 2, which may revolve around Marc and Steven fighting to find out who is stealing time in their body from time to time.

In a statement released with, director Mohamed Diab shared that he was still unsure of Moon Knight’s future and his involvement in the project.

First of all, I want to tell you that I'm kept in the dark as you. I know nothing about what's going to happen. And I'm not just saying that I'm not pulling a Toby McGuire on you.
The thing is, I am sure that Moon Knight is here to stay. Is it going to be a film? Is it going to be a TV show? Is it going to be just joining another character in the next journey? I don't know. I wish I'm part of that story. One day, expanding that world.
If it was for me, I would start with Jake Lockley. I want to see his world. Everyone is so intrigued about him and see what happens in between those blinks and who he is and what he love, and who he love. It's very interesting for me. But I love that the small things that we put all through the episode made people, every episode, waiting for Jake, waiting for Jake, waiting for Jake. But I think it; he was introduced in the right time at the very end, knowing that con should still have a hold on them

Layla is another potential focus of the plot. When Diab spoke with Deadline, he shared what we can expect from the goddess’ Tawaret’s Avatar.

We kept it open, because this could be Layla's beginning. I want it to be a temporary avatar. Having her partner with someone completely different from her, (like) Tawaret, would be so interesting and they can drive each other crazy.Her learning does she need to be a superhero now or not, because she hates the idea right now, or maybe she needs to learn it's important or not. There's so much room to go there, I don't know what's going to happen.
