Marvel has come to mean many things…
It means entertainment, great heroes, captivating villains, imagination, endless possibilities.
Indeed, the Marvel name has grown to become a seal of approval for majority audiences. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never heard of the characters; Guardians of the Galaxy proved that we didn’t necessarily need to have any prior knowledge to have a good time.
So, when Hit-Monkey arrived on Hulu, it was a no-brainer to tune in.
Created by Will Speck and Josh Gordon, the series is based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name and stars Fred Tatasciore in the titular role.
Jason Sudeikis, George Takei, Olivia Munn, and more also lend their voices to this outrageous adult animation.
With so much talent behind it, has Hit Monkey season 2 already been confirmed?
Is Hit-Monkey renewed for season 2?
No, neither the creators nor Hulu have confirmed whether Hit Monkey has been renewed for a second season.
All 10 episodes were released simultaneously on the platform on Wednesday, November 17th 2021. With that in mind, it’s arguably still quite early to expect concrete renewal news.
Often streaming services tend to observe the viewing figures over the following month (post-release) to consider whether greenlighting another season is warranted. If the statistics and fan reception are positive, they tend to press on.
Even with the Marvel name behind a project, success isn’t always a guarantee.
Nevertheless, that hasn’t stopped the creators from addressing their plans for the series’ potentially bright future…
“There’s a lot to be had there”
While in conversation with ScreenRant, both Will Speck and Josh Gordon shed some light on the path ahead.
Will explained that they “don’t have any future plans” in that there are “no commitments” fixed at the moment. However, he added: “… in terms of a bible for the next 10 seasons, we have it very handy if you’d like to hear about it. [Laughs]”
Josh Gordon elaborated, addressing that there are definitely two seasons worth of material in the tank:
“Certainly the second and third seasons were enormously detailed and drawn out. We wanted the first season to work as its own complete meal and it really does sort of operate almost like an extended feature in that way, where it has a very strong beginning, middle and end and it does stand alone.”
He continued: “But in terms of where these characters would go, including Lady Bullseye, there’s a lot to be had there.”
What do audiences think?
Although the critics have been somewhat divided, there are clearly plenty of audiences who love the show.
A number of fans have wasted no time in flocking to Twitter to voice their hopes for a second round of Hit-Monkey.
