Season 1 of “Hawkeye” launched on Disney+ in November 2021 with the finale episode dropping in December however there has not been any confirmation of a second season yet.  A spinoff series is currently in development featuring Echo.  Echo was just introduced in the “Hawkeye” series on Disney+.  The deaf Native American character whose real name is Maya Lopez, is played by Alaqua Cox. She has the ability to perfectly copy another person’s movements or fighting style, making her a formidable opponent on the battlefield. Not much is known about the series, but filming is currently underway and is expected to release on Disney+ in 2023.

Steinfeld has previously been rumored to return in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania however nothing has been confirmed.

In Marvel’s “Hawkeye”, former Avenger Clint Barton has a seemingly simple mission: get back to his family for Christmas. Possible? Maybe with the help of Kate Bishop, a 22-year-old archer with dreams of becoming a Super Hero. The two are forced to work together when a presence from Barton’s past threatens to derail far more than the festive spirit.

Starring Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton/Hawkeye and Hailee Steinfeld as Kate Bishop, “Hawkeye” also features Vera Farmiga, Fra Fee, Tony Dalton, Zahn McClarnon, Brian d’Arcy James and newcomer Alaqua Cox as Maya Lopez.

The series is helmed by Rhys Thomas and directing duo Bert and Bertie.

All six episodes from Season 1 of “Hawkeye” are streaming now on Disney+.
