March 30, 2022, saw another superhero join the Marvel Cinematic Universe through the Disney+ miniseries, Moon Knight. The main character played by Oscar Isaac, Marc Spector, suffered from Dissociative Identity Disorder. Owing to this, the actor got to play a bunch of different roles in the same show and from the same body, putting all his acting skills to use.
While the miniseries received a mixed response from critics and fans alike, the majority of it was positive. Anyone who saw Moon Knight would agree with the fact that the miniseries was different and a bit darker than what the MCU has set the tone for all these years. After the season finale aired on May 04, 2022, fans of the superhero were already wondering when they would see him on their screens again. A new report has the answer to that.
When is Moon Knight Season Two Coming Out?
Created by Jeremy Slater, Moon Knight ended its first season after just six episodes. Thanks to the brilliant execution of the characters by the actors, especially the lead Oscar Isaac, fans were super curious as to when the show will be returning to the screens with a season two. After all, who doesn’t want to see more adventures of Marc Spector and Steven Grant?
Now, thanks to a scooper on Twitter who goes by the username @EmberOnCulture, fans have a rough idea about when the multiple personalities of Isaac’s character will return. According to the report, Moon Knight season two will be released sometime before Avengers: Secret Wars, a movie set in MCU’s Phase 6. No official confirmations have been made, though.

Marvel’s disappointing Phase 4 ended with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever releasing in theatres and The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special releasing on Disney+. Since Phase 4 has officially been concluded, it’s going to take no time for the MCU to jump straight into its fifth phase with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania releasing on February 17, 2023, which is just a month and a few days away!
Do We Know an Exact Date?
Unfortunately no, but speculations are always welcome, right?
During the San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel announced a number of projects for Phase 5 but Moon Knight season 2 was nowhere to be found on the list. Neither was it seen in the Phase 6 announcements. This flies right in the face of the report which clearly mentions the second season releasing before Secret Wars, a Phase 6 film. However, let’s not forget that there were a bunch of “untitled” projects set to release between Fantastic Four, Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, and Avengers: Secret Wars.
@EmberOnCulture’s report sits well in these terms and Moon Knight season 2 could very well be one of the title-less projects of Phase 6. Since Secret Wars is planning to be one of the biggest movies in the entirety of MCU with a lot of superheroes showing up for battle, it only makes sense that Moon Knight could be a part of the team as well. Another scooper, MyTimeToShineH had previously revealed that The Kang Dynasty will also include the new superheroes in the lead. Moon Knight could show up here, as well.
Apart from Moon Knight, EmberOnCulture’s report also mentioned that Ms. Marvel will also be getting a second season before Secret Wars. This makes Moon Knight, Ms. Marvel, and Loki the only three miniseries to get a second season, for now. We can’t wait to see how all the phases unravel one after the other, and especially how Marc and Steven plan on becoming the heroes who save the world from rogue Gods.
Moon Knight season one is available to stream on Disney+ and Avengers: Secret Wars will release on May 01, 2026.
