Moon Knight Boss Shares a Heartfelt ‘Thank You’ for the Show’s Success

Moon Knight director Mohamed Diab recently gave thanks for the success of the Oscar Isaac-led Disney+/Marvel Studios limited series.

On the day of the show's finale, Diab wrote in a tweet, "Thanks everyone who worked day and night on Moon Knight for 2 years to make the best show they can." Diab praised stars Isaac, May Calamawy and Ethan Hawke as well as consulting producer Sarah Goher for "being the best partners" before acknowledging fans' part in the show's success. "...More than anyone I need to thank YOU the fans who made it all worth while!" Fittingly, Diab's tweet featured a Moon Knight emoji attached to the show's hashtag.

While Moon Knight was well received by fans and critics, Isaac himself confirmed there are no plans to give the show a second season. However, Diab brought up why he thinks the antihero could come back, noting, "[Moon Knight is] an interesting character. If you are Marvel, I think the smart business decision is to keep him. The only thing is, Marvel is not traditional. If you succeed, it doesn't mean you're gonna get a Season 2. By the way, I'm kept in the dark. I have no clue. I'm just thinking as a businessman right now." Regardless of whether the series will continue, producer Goher essentially confirmed that Moon Knight will return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, cryptically remarking that Marvel Studios has "only scratched the surface" of Marc Spector's story.

Prior to both of these comments, Isaac said he wasn't sure if he would reprise the role, adding that it depended on Moon Knight's viewing numbers. "But I love playing him," the actor said. "Particularly Steven [Grant, one of Moon Knight's alter egos.] I hope I get to visit him again. I love him so much. I feel he's someone real, who lives in the world. It's been a long time since I felt that kind of connection."

As for Moon Knight meeting other MCU heroes, Diab discussed his ideas for how this would happen, saying that he could see Marc Spector and Steven Grant "driving the characters of the MCU crazy." Isaac named the Midnight Sons and Marvel Knights as his picks, while showrunner Jeremy Slater said that while he doesn't know what will happen to the character in the future, he believes Marvel plans on having Moon Knight join the Avengers.

Moon Knight is now streaming on Disney+.
