Disney almost confirms that it has no plans to develop a second season of the two Hawk Eye and moon knight.

As Variety reported, Marvel Studios is in the process of submitting its latest batch of Disney+ series for a variety of Emmy awards. Similar to Wanda Visionboth Hawk Eye and moon knight were submitted for the Limited Series category, suggesting the shows won’t continue into a Season 2. In contrast, while Marvel Studios originally planned to submit Loki in the same category, the plan has been changed due to confirmation that Tom Hiddleston’s mischievous god will return in season 2.

According to the official description of the Television Academy’s Limited Series category, a show nominated for the award “must tell a complete, non-recurring story, and have no ongoing storyline or main characters in subsequent seasons.” The Primetime Emmys have long struggled with the category, as several shows that won the award announced second seasons, questioning the award’s requirements.

While moon knight may not return for a second season, the series creators are confident that Marc Spector will play an important future role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. “[Marvel] keep expressing how much they love the show every day, but it’s not like any other show, i.e. on the other show, outside of the Marvel Universe,” said said director Mohamed Diab “That is to say any TV series, if it’s good you know you’re going to have a second season, but a Wanda Vision was great. And you didn’t get a second season, you moved on. So what I’m absolutely sure of is that Moon Knight is staying, staying long, in my opinion.”

As for the potential of Hawk EyeOn the way back, executive producer Rhys Thomas noted that while he can’t wait to see Kate Bishop’s character grow and progress in the MCU, he’s not sure it will be a second season. “I can’t talk about future plans in the tradition of secrecy,” Thomas said. “I loved walking the streets of the MCU and would love to do it again.”

As of this writing, the only Marvel Studios series that have officially confirmed a Season 2 are Loki and What if…? Although it’s unclear when Hiddleston will return, What if…? Writer AC Bradley has confirmed that the second season of the anime series is set to release in 2022.
