Marvel’s Hit-Monkey Season 2: Extended or Canceled?

November 17, 2021

the Hulu– Marvel’s hit adult animated series Monkey follows Monkey, a Japanese snow monkey who goes on a revenge mission to destroy the people who killed his tribe. Monkey is accompanied by the ghost of Bryce, an assassin who joins his tribe before being killed by his enemies. After his death, Bryce becomes Monkey’s ubiquitous companion, helping him become the eponymous hit monkey by training him and helping him finish off those who have harmed his tribe.

Created by Will Speck and Josh Gordon, the series portrays the expedition of Monkey and Bryce, which also makes them think about their own nature. The series is based on the Marvel comic book character of the same name. When it premiered in November 2021, the series received positive reviews and was recognized for its compelling storytelling, originality, and style. After a spectacular first season, you’re probably wondering what happens to the second season. So here’s everything we know about Marvel’s hit Season 2 Monkey!

Marvel’s hit Monkey Season 2 release date

The full-length ‘Marvel’s Hit Monkey’ Season 1 landed on Hulu on November 17, 2021. The first season consists of ten episodes with a running time of 22-27 minutes each.

As for season two, here’s what we know. Neither Hulu nor Marvel Studios have made an official announcement about the future of the series. However, the makers Will Speck and Josh Gordon have expressly expressed their wish to continue the series beyond the first season. In an interview given in November 2021 before the series premiere, Speck and Gordon revealed that they have already planned the second and third seasons in detail.

While the creative duo did not forget to make it clear that there are no formal commitments on the part of the streamer or the studio, the characters and storyline have a sequel after the first season. So if Hulu and Marvel are happy with the viewership and overall performance of the series, we can hope for another episode.

With the creators already planning the future story arc, it shouldn’t be long before the series returns to screens, assuming it’s picked up for another round. So if the animated series gets the green light soon, we can expect season 2 of Marvel’s hit Monkey to come out sometime in the first quarter of 2023.

Marvel’s Hit Monkey Season 2 Voice Cast: Who Can Be There?

If the series is renewed, we can assume that the cast will remain the same for the second season. That means we’ll hear the voices of Fred Tatasciore and Jason Sudeikis as protagonist Hit-Monkey and Monkey’s mentor Bryce, respectively. Olivia Munn (Akiko), Ally Maki (Haruka) and Nobi Nakanishi (Ito) could also return. It is likely that George Takei will continue to voice Shinji Yokohama.

Marvel’s Hit-Monkey Season 2 Plot: What Can It Be About?

Season one begins with Bryce arriving in Tokyo where he is set to assassinate a prime minister candidate. Bryce is injured on the job and ends up in the mountains to be treated by a tribe of monkeys. But Bryce’s enemies track him down and kill him along with the entire tribe, except for Monkey, who survived the disaster. As a result, Bryce’s ghost begins to visit Monkey and train him to take revenge on the people who wronged him. As Hit-Monkey continues his rampage, he meets Lady Bullseye, who takes things to a whole new level. But with Bryce’s help, Hit-Monkey tries to finish what it started.

If the series is extended, Lady Bullseye will be the focus of the second season. With her ego being hurt by the hit monkey, we can expect the super villain to develop all her strength in the coming season. In the November 2021 interview, the series’ creators confirmed that there will be much research into Bullseye’s character should the series get the green light for a second season. However, we can assume that Bryce will continue to mentor Hit-Monkey as he begins to understand the intricacies of the crime syndicates even better. If the makers stick to the elements of the original comics, we could see in a possible second season how Hit-Monkey kills the assassins.
