All the Echo season 2 news we’ve heard so far

[Ed. note: This post contains spoilers for the end of Echo season 1.]

Echo season 1 ends with a bang, with Echo (Alaqua Cox) going up towards Kingpin (Vincent D’Onofrio) once more after confronting him in Hawkeye. Alongside the means, she reconnected along with her roots, her household, and her sense of self, placing her on the observe to turning into a hero. She might not have all of it discovered, but it surely’s a begin — and a greater one than working along with her “Uncle” Wilson Fisk.

It’s sufficient to make you marvel the place Echo would possibly present up subsequent. So far, Echo has solely appeared in Hawkeye and Echo, however with the MCU branching farther than ever, it looks like there are numerous locations a hothead superhero may pop up — together with, doubtlessly, a second season of her personal present?

Right here’s every part we find out about Marvel’s future plans for Echo and Echo:

Is there going to be an Echo season 2?

As of this writing, Disney hasn’t confirmed if there can be a season 2 of Echo. For now, the present is being billed as a miniseries, similar to Hawkeye earlier than it. However that doesn’t essentially imply that the present received’t be coming again.

And it looks like there’s loads of room to develop in season 2: Whereas Maya spent all 5 episodes of Echo gaining her powers, it was solely in episode 4 she obtained some perception into them, and solely episode 5 the place she actually obtained to make the most of them. That’s leaving good origin story fodder on the desk, should you ask me! Between that, and her renewed bond along with her household, a possible season 2 may cowl numerous floor — even earlier than it’s a must to herald any future MCU connections Maya would possibly type in different reveals. (And even when doing so would imply disturbing the newfound peace she appears to have present in her life; value of being a protagonist, I’m afraid.)

When will Echo present up subsequent in the MCU?

So far, neither Alaqua Cox nor Echo have been confirmed to indicate up wherever else in the MCU. However there’s a Daredevil present in the works (and in the reworks) that looks like a possibility for her; in spite of everything, that they had a reasonably nice combat in Echo.

And if Hawkeye is any indication, this doesn’t should be the finish for Cox’s Maya Lopez. Hailee Steinfeld’s Kate Bishop confirmed up in a teaser scene at the finish of The Marvels as Hawkeye’s inheritor obvious, that means Echo may discover a similar slot someplace in the MCU. (Even when, for now, it’s nonetheless unclear what Kate can be doing as a part of Kamala’s workforce.)

When would possibly Echo season 2 debut on Disney Plus (or Hulu)?

If there’s an Echo season 2, it is perhaps some time earlier than it truly comes out. Echo was first introduced in November 2021, proper after Cox confirmed up as Echo in Hawkeye. With the present solely getting launched some two years later, the earliest we’re more likely to see Echo season 2 could be 2026.

What does this imply for the Marvel Highlight?

Echo was a singular launch for Marvel, not simply because it was the first one to drop on Hulu (and in full) as an alternative of Disney Plus. It was additionally the first entry in the new Marvel Highlight umbrella, one thing Echo producer Richie Palmer says Echo was the proper present at the proper time to be.

“I think it was us saying, You know what? Echo wants to be its own thing. So let’s allow it to be,” Palmer tells Polygon. “We wanted to figure out, when we were bringing Maya Lopez to life, how do we honor that aspect of the comics? How do we keep it dark and gritty and separated from everything else that was going on?”

“And then Kevin [Feige] came in, as we were editing the show, and we were seeing how dark we were pushing it. And he was saying, Don’t hold back on the violence, don’t hold back on the grit and this grounded tone, it’s what’s making this show so unique and special. So Marvel Spotlight kind of came from Kevin.”

With Highlight choices being framed as a possibility for extra informal viewing, even sans some other MCU data, it’s unclear if reveals like Echo are being designed (or promised, and even thought of for) a second season.
