Hawkeye season 2: Release Date, Cast, Plot, and Latest Update!
Hawkeye season 2 Release Date: Hawkeye, like WandaVision and Falcon and the Winter Soldier before it, has been billed as a limited series, so a second season appears unlikely. However, Marvel can be even more devious than Yelena, especially when it comes to the future of their major superhero ventures. So, let’s just say that not all hope is lost.
Both Loki and What If…? were not renewed until their first seasons had finished airing on Disney+, and even if an announcement for season two never comes, it doesn’t mean Hawkeye’s on-screen career is over.
Variety believes a second season is on the way, noting that the series was nominated for an Emmy in the comedy category, which is usually reserved for ongoing shows rather than one-off mini-series.
In fact, there is a limited series category Moon Knight has been submitted there – and the comedy category features stiff competition from the likes of Barry and Ted Lasso, so Disney’s decision to include Hawkeye in the mix is certainly intriguing.
“It’s exciting to hear fans clamoring for a season two,” directing duo Bert and Bertie told Buzzfeed in response to questions about season two. We are powerless to intervene. That’s when you know you’re doing something right and people are really happy.
“They’ve been along for the ride, and they want more. More Kate, Yelena, and everything. Because it’s the Marvel Cinematic Universe, these stories must go on, right?” Grab some hot sauce and join us at Digital Spy as we investigate how “these stories” might continue in Hawkeye season two and beyond.
Hawkeye season 2 Release Date
Most TV shows have a second season 12-18 months after the first, but Marvel shows are part of a much larger plan that includes the MCU as a whole.
As a result, it’s more difficult to predict when a story like Hawkeye will return, or if it will be renewed at all. It’s just as likely that these characters could pop back into a film or someone else’s TV show instead. If Hawkeye season two is made a reality, we expect new episodes to be released in 2023 at the earliest.
Hawkeye Season 2 Cast
The biggest unknown about Hawkeye season two is Jeremy Renner’s involvement. In many ways, season one has prepared Hailee Steinfeld’s Kate Bishop to take over for the original Hawkeye in the future.
While Hailee’s return is almost certainly a foregone conclusion, we shouldn’t rule out Jeremy just yet. According to producer Trinh Tran, Renner may still have a future in the MCU (though we imagine his involvement will be less prominent in the future).
Tran explained to CinePOP: “There are always new stories to tell, especially when it comes to Clint Barton. There’s so much more to discover. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens, but working with Jeremy is fantastic. He adores his character, and he is the only one who truly understands who Clint Barton is. I believe there are options. We’ll see.”
There’s also a big question mark surrounding Kingpin, as played by Vincent D’Onofrio in both Hawkeye and Daredevil on Netflix too. In the final run of Matt Fraction’s iconic Hawkeye comic, Kingpin assembled a number of criminal leaders and declared: “It would appear we are in the Avenger-killing business.” However, Echo turned the tables on screen in the Hawkeye finale by shooting him off screen, seemingly killing him instead.
But is Kingpin actually dead or will he return one day, injured but very much alive? Our money’s on the latter. Did you see how he shrugged off all those arrows to the chest? If so, then expect to see him return in Hawkeye season two and/or Echo’s spinoff show. Hopefully, Kate’s new BFF, Yelena Romanoff (Florence Pugh), will stick around to help with some hot sauce in hand too.
“In the tradition of secrecy, I cannot speak to future plans,” director Rhys Thomas told Collider. “Again, you never know how a show will be received, and it has been amazing to see how warmly people have accepted and enjoyed it. And it’s been fantastic to see Hailee’s character embraced and firmly planted in the MCU. I’m excited to see where that character goes next. And, yes, I enjoyed walking through the streets of the MCU and would gladly do so again.”
Renner has previously been even more coy, telling GamesRadar, “I don’t have a crystal ball, and I’m not a fortune teller. But, with Hailee and these characters, I believe it opens up the possibility of six great episodes for this type of television event. After that, I’m not sure. However, these six episodes are quite exciting.”
Speaking of Steinfeld, she expressed her excitement at joining the MCU, stating that Hawkeye season one is only the beginning of her journey.
“I can tell you that [Kate’s] story is just getting started in this show that I am so excited to be a part of, and I am just so excited to be playing a character that people have been waiting to see on the big screen for a long time,” Steinfeld said (via GamesRadar). “I consider myself extremely fortunate.”
Hawkeye Season 2 Plot
Hawkeye’s first season purposefully left things open, implying that Clint Barton, along with his new partner, Kate Bishop aka Lady Hawk, Hawk Eve, Hawk Shot, and Lady Arrow, may continue as Hawkeye.
It remains to be seen whether that story continues in Hawkeye season two, but one thing is certain: Kate’s upcoming involvement with the Avengers. Marvel has been teasing a Young Avengers team for some time now, which means that Hailee Steinfeld’s character could soon end up on the big screen alongside Wanda’s children, Ant-daughter, Man, and plenty more new heroes who look set to replace the golden oldies.
The consequences of Hawkeye’s first season will also be felt in Echo’s new spinoff show, which Marvel has already confirmed. By the end of season one, Alaqua Cox’s character had been redeemed, positioning her to be a morally dubious vigilante in the vein of Marvel’s Netflix roster when her new show premieres.
