Hulu's M.O.D.O.K. dropped all ten episodes of its Season 1 at once. The stop-motion animation delivers enough hilarious moments that you'll be done before you know it, and asking when more of the big-headed villain's antics are on the way.
Patton Oswalt stars in an adult comedy about Marvel's M.O.D.O.K. (which stands for Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing), a villain who has as much trouble keeping his family together as he does destroying the world. In amusing fail after fail, M.O.D.O.K.'s wife files for divorce and he loses control of his company. By the season finale, the show takes a dark turn as M.O.D.O.K. decides to let his entire family die in order to achieve world domination. He quickly realizes none of his triumphs are worth it without his family at his side, and vows to get them back.
Will there be a M.O.D.O.K. season 2?
As of now, a second season has yet to be confirmed. However, the production team has already made plans for the next season, including character arcs. Co-creator Jordan Blum replied to a tweet about Melissa, M.O.D.O.K.'s teenage daughter, and her sexuality. "Season 1 focuses mostly on her relationship with her dad but season 2 will introduce her girlfriend," Blum says.
In another tweet, a user asks if that means a second season is confirmed. "Not yet," Blum says. "Just need enough people to watch."
What will season 2 of M.O.D.O.K. be about?
In the season one finale, M.O.D.O.K. once again meets with the alternate timeline version of himself, Anomaly. Anomaly says that the only timeline he's found in which M.O.D.O.K is successful in taking over the world is one in which his entire family is dead. While M.O.D.O.K. grapples with the monumental choice, Anomaly makes the final decision and kills his wife and kids.
As promised, M.O.D.O.K. defeats the Avengers and sits on a throne made of Iron Man's armor. He tortures Anomaly, trying to use the killer's power to bring back his family. Unfortunately, he can only view small portals that flashback to when his wife and kids were alive. Anomaly eventually dies and says there's no way for M.O.D.O.K. to bring them back. But M.O.D.O.K. won't be stopped. He's more determined than ever to revive his fallen family and bring them into the world he rules. “M.O.D.O.K. will have it all!” the character declares at the end of the episode.
But when he brings his family back, will they forgive him? Will M.O.D.O.K. manage to save his marriage? We'll just have to wait and see.
In an interview with Comicbook, Blum says he wants to bring X-Men into the next season. He'd love to write a Storm and M.O.D.O.K. scene. "The X-Men flood gates have opened," Blum says, after featuring X-Men villain Mr. Sinister in the first season. "So yeah, there are some bigger, bigger guys I'd love to have show up Season Two."
Blum also revealed there is a rough idea of what Season 2 will be about. So if/when the Season 2 announcement comes, it sounds like M.O.D.O.K.'s production team will already be hard at work.
When will it come out?
Since the show has yet to get the green light for a Season 2, it's hard to say when the next season will come. But stop-motion animation takes time. The series was first announced in February 2019, and Comicbook reported in January 2020 that a few episodes of the show were completed. At that pace, it could mean the next season is at least a year away.
Who will be in the cast?
It's safe to say Patton Oswalt will return as M.O.D.O.K. Plus, he's a writer and producer on the show. The rest of the villain's family, played by Aimee Garcia, Ben Schwartz, Melissa Fumero are likely to return as well.
