Secret Invasion is set to premiere on Disney+ in just under two weeks, and it's probably fair to say that this "game-changing espionage thriller" is one of the most anticipated Marvel Studios shows yet.
Director Ali Selim describes the series as a "six-hour movie unto itself" with a defined conclusion during an interview with Total Film, but that doesn't mean there's no room for the story to continue in a second season.
"When it ends, I hope you feel satiated and complete. And as Marvel does so excellently, you also feel like 'Oh, it could go in this direction.'"
Selim also takes us quite close to spoiler territory by revealing that at least one, maybe more, characters will be killed-off over the course of the six episodes.
"Nick Fury is alive and continues to battle, I don’t think that’s a spoiler alert. And there are some characters that are no longer with us and some characters that live to see another challenge. I would love to see that challenge become season two."

"In Marvel Studios’ new series Secret Invasion, set in the present day MCU, Nick Fury learns of a clandestine invasion of Earth by a faction of shapeshifting Skrulls. Fury joins his allies, including Everett Ross, Maria Hill and the Skrull Talos, who has made a life for himself on Earth. Together they race against time to thwart an imminent Skrull invasion and save humanity."
