Though Moon Knight was originally developed as a limited series, rumors soon spread that Marc Spector/Steven Grant/Jake Lockley might return for more. Those rumors gained some steam today when a video was posted on TikTok of director Mohamed Diab and Oscar Isaac teasing. Moon Knight season 2.
TikTok user hayaaattaaaa asked, “The question on everyone’s mind: is there a season 2?“The camera panned over to Mohamed Diab who said,”By Moon Knight?” before switching to Oscar Isaac who teased, ”Why else would we be in Cairo?” Diab then reshared the video Twitter with a captain who reads,”Moon Knight season 2?“
That first season ended with Khonshu releasing Marc Spector and Steven Grant from his service, but a mid-credits scene revealed that a third alter, Jake Lockley, continued to work with Khonshu, apparently killing Arthur Harrow (Ethan Hawke). Lots of seeds were planted that could be picked up in another Marvel Cinematic Universe project. Mohamed Diab told ComicBook.com just a few months ago that he was not sure about the second season of Moon Knight but added that if the series returns, he would like to focus on Jake Lockley.
If it were up to me, I’d start with Jake Lockley. I want to see his world. Everyone is so fascinated by him and [I want to] see what happens between those blinks and who he is and what he loves and who he loves. It is very interesting to me. But I love that the little things that we put throughout the episode made people, every single episode, wait for Jake, wait for Jake, wait for Jake. But I think so, he was introduced at the right time at the very end, knowing that con would still have a hold of them.
Moon Knight followed by Steven Grant, a mild-mannered gift shop clerk plagued by blackouts and memories of another life. Steven discovers he has dissociative identity disorder and shares a body with mercenary Marc Spector. As Steven/Marc’s enemies gather around them, they must navigate their complex identities as they are thrown into a deadly mystery among the powerful gods of Egypt.
It remains to be seen if that is true, but you want to see Moon Knight season 2?
