Despite being billed as a limited series since it was announced, and despite Marvel confirming they would campaign the series in all of the Emmy’s Limited Series categories, Moon Knight may not actually be a limited series after all.
After weeks of speculation as to when we might see Marc Spector, Moon Knight, and all of his other alter egos again, we may have just gotten the biggest indication of a planned second season yet.
Monday, Marvel unveiled a teaser for the sixth and allegedly final episode of Moon Knight, which airs this week. And while it’s mostly comprised of footage fans have seen in the first five episodes, the biggest revelation comes at the end of it.
One of the final title cards in the teaser reads “Season Finale Streaming Wednesday.”

Whoever edited the piece together could have put the words “Series Finale” or even just “Finale” but they didn’t. We’re sure this means that Moon Knight’s arc in the MCU is just beginning.
Given the fact that the series has felt like a total standalone project since its debut, and that there haven’t been too many connections made to the rest of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe so far, it makes sense that we get to the character venture off outside his corner of the world and potentially meet some other supernatural superheroes.
Unfortunately, we won’t know for sure until Wednesday when (hopefully) we say the words “Moon Knight Will Return” post-credits.
What do you think this means? Sound off below!
Based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name, Moon Knight will follow the adventures of a former U.S Marine with dissociative identity disorder (DID), named Marc Spector, who becomes the avatar for the ancient Egyptian moon god Khonshu and a crime fighting mercenary after discovering his statue.
The Umbrella Academy‘s Jeremy Slater is both the series’ showrunner and lead writer, while Mohamed Diab, Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead (Synchronic), and potentially even George Clooney will all divvy up directing duties on its six episodes.
