Actor Oscar Isaac and the rest of the “Moon Knight” cast have shared what they know about the fate of the latest Marvel Disney+ live-action superhero series and it doesn’t look good.
However, that doesn’t mean that fans should give up hope entirely.
According to Comicbook.com, Marvel Studios shared one last trailer for the finale before it aired earlier this week. According to the outlet, the initial tweet used the wording “series finale.” The tweet was reportedly deleted and replaced with a new tweet saying “season finale.”
That has led many fans to believe that “Moon Knight” will get a second season. However, the cast doesn’t seem to think so.
Oscar Isaac Says There Are ‘No Official Plans’ For Season 2
In a recent interview with RadioTimes.com, the “Star Wars” alum revealed that there are no plans for a second season of “Moon Knight.”
“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,” he explained.
“There are definitely no official plans to continue it,” he added. “I think it would depend on what the story is.”
The “Scenes from a Marriage” actor revealed that Isaac was only signed on for one season of the show. However, he did seem to be open to returning to play Marc Spector, Steven Grant, and Jake Lloyd.
“That being said, I love being Steven,” Isaac went on to say. “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.”
Ethan Hawke, who plays Arthur Harrow, and May Calamawy, who plays Layla El-Faouly, also echoed what Isaac said about a potential future season.

Calamawy also seemed to cast doubt on a second season, although she is ready to return to the Marvel universe.
“I’ve not heard anything,” Calamawy said. “So if there [are plans], I’m yet to hear. If there were, I would, yeah, I’d consider returning. Of course.”
Hawke asked, “Do you want to play the same character for long periods of time?”
“Most actors don’t,” Hawke noted. “But if you’re making audiences happy, your opinion changes.”
In a separate interview, Hawke brought up the fact that a second season of “Moon Knight” doesn’t have to be greenlit in order for fans to see their favorite characters again. It’s possible that the characters could return in a standalone film, or appear in another Marvel ensemble film.
When asked if “Moon Knight” was a limited series or a continuing story, Hawke replied, “The good news is that it’s possibly both.”
He added, “It lives and breathes on its own merits, it functions as a limited series, and if people are engaged and excited by it then it could be the origin story of a larger thing.”
The “Moon Knight” director and executive producers have also weighed in on the possibility of a second season. Their comments can be seen here.
