Disney may have just hinted that more Hawkeye is coming to our small screens. On its For Your Consideration website, the Company has changed the Marvel TV Series’ Emmy Awards intentions from Outstanding Limited Series to Outstanding Comedy Series. That’s correct; The show has been removed from the limited category, meaning Hawkeye Season 2 is now possible.
With the official change, it’s very likely that Disney is hinting that Kate (Hailee Steinfeld) and Clint (Jeremy Renner) could be back on the alert in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as this isn’t the first time such a development has occurred . Previously, the sci-fi series Loki was listed as a limited series. As any MCU fan now knows, this listing was primarily a red herring as the show ended on a major cliffhanger, and indeed Loki season 2 is now on the way.
While Hawkeye didn’t feature any significant cliffhangers that can’t be covered in the upcoming Echo spin-off series, it does feel like Disney is up to its old tricks and an announcement could be around the corner.
Hawkeye was well received when it was released late last year. Our Anthony McGlynn called the final episode an “exciting finale” in his Hawkeye review. Currently, freshman season holds an impressive 92% on Rotten Tomatoes, so it would be understandable if Disney were keen to keep the sharp-eyed shooters on its slate.
This is all speculation at the moment. However, director Rhys Thomas has also previously hinted that he’s more than open to a return to the MCU. “The show that comes out, you never know how it will be received, and it’s been amazing to see how warmly people have embraced it and enjoyed it,” Thomas told Collider.
“And it’s been great to see Hailee’s character being embraced and anchored so firmly in the MCU. I’m genuinely excited for where this character goes next. And yes, I loved walking the streets of the MCU and would love to do it again.”
