HAWKEYE Is Now Billed As "Comedy Series" For Awards Campaign; Could Season 2 Be Coming?

Hawkeye was originally promoted as a Limited Series on Disney+, but based on Marvel Studios' "For Your Consideration" campaign, that might have changed. Does it mean we're eventually getting season 2?

Hawkeye was a hit with fans when it arrived on Disney+ last year, and there was immediate speculation about when and where we could see another team-up between Clint Barton and Kate Bishop. The show was way too much fun to be a one-off, but the fact that it was billed as a Limited Series by Marvel Studios pointed to us getting six episodes and nothing more.

Well, something appears to have changed as the For Your Consideration campaign for the show now describes it as a Comedy Series. That means it won't compete in the Limited Series category, and this might be a strong indication that there are tentative plans for a season 2.

It would be pretty perplexing to not do something else with Clint and Kate, especially as the Hawkeye finale saw them come into their own as a team. The Avenger looked set to train his protege after taking her home for the holidays, and there were enough dangling plot threads that it wouldn't be remotely difficult to continue this story (and hopefully bring back Jack Duquesne).

Marvel Studios has yet to announce its Phase 4 slate and, with Disney+, we usually get release date announcements when the first trailers drop. That's been the case with shows like Ms. Marvel and She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, anyway, but fingers crossed some Hawkeye season 2 news is coming.

"Marvel Studios is once again sleigh-in' it with Hawkeye," we said in our review of the show last year. "[It's] an unmissable Christmastime team-up bringing holiday cheer to the MCU with top tier storytelling delivered in the Mighty Marvel Manner and a bold, brilliant new hero in Hailee Steinfeld's Kate Bishop."

Would you like more Hawkeye action from Marvel Studios?
