Marvel Studios' Emmy Plans Seemingly Confirm HAWKEYE And MOON KNIGHT Won't Be Getting Second Seasons
While Moon Knight has been billed as a "limited series" from the start, Marvel Studios has also seemingly confirmed that Hawkeye was another one-and-done project for Disney+. Read on for further details...
Variety has shared some insights into Marvel Studios' Emmy plans which might just confirm future plans (or not) for some of the shows we've seen from them on Disney+. WandaVision may have missed out on the top prize last time, but it still dominated with 23 nominations, and Kevin Feige and company are understandably looking for the same level of success next time around.
After announcing plans for a second season in the finale's post-credits scene, you probably won't be shocked to learn that Loki will no longer be submitted as a limited series. Instead, it will compete in the highly competitive drama categories, but Hawkeye and Moon Knight will not.
They're each being pushed as limited series; Moon Knight has been billed as a one-off from the start, but fans were hopeful for more Hawkeye after those stellar six episodes. The door is seemingly closed on Clint Barton and Kate Bishop getting another TV team-up as the Television Academy rules and regulations state that, "The program must tell a complete, non-recurring story, and not have an ongoing storyline or main characters in subsequent seasons."
Aside from Loki, Hawkeye, and Moon Knight, What If...? will be pushed for outstanding animated program.
There are bound to be big plans for Kate Bishop in the MCU moving forward, while we also find it doubtful that Marc Spector's story will wrap up for good a few weeks from now.
It's interesting that Marvel Studios is introducing these characters in their own TV shows, only to seemingly use them as supporting players in other projects going forward. Extended introductions are great, but will it really be that satisfying for the new Hawkeye or Moon Knight to be relegated to sixth on the call sheet in the next Avengers movie? Of course, it's possible they'll get their own movies.
Either way, in Marvel Studios we trust!
