After time-travelling in Endgame and returning to the life of a family man after leaving vigilantism behind, the long underdeveloped Hawkeye finally has own solo entry in the MCU with the eponymous Hawkeye, streaming on Disney+.
This new series centers around Jeremy Renner back again as Avengers veteran Clint Barton who’s tracked down by a young sharp-shooter fan Kate Bishop, played by Hailee Steinfeld. While Barton tries to focus on his family, he finds himself having to team up with Bishop as they’re under attack by local criminals during Christmas in New York City (Die Hard vibes, anyone?). While Barton attempts to return home to his family before Christmas, Bishop is looking for guidance on how to become a superhero like Barton.
Here’s everything you need to know to binge the entire first season of one of the most highly-anticipated MCU series of 2021.

Hawkeye Rating, Runtime, Number of Episodes and Cast
Hawkeye has a TV-14 rating with high-intensity action scenes, and you can watch all six episodes of the series with new episodes dropping weekly on Disney+. Episodes will vary in length, from 40 to 50 minutes. Jonathon Igla, who’s worked on both Mad Men and Masters of Sex, serves as creator and showrunner.
The show also stars Tony Dalton, Fra Fee, Brian d’Arcy James, Aleks Paunovic, Piotr Adamczyk, Linda Cardellini, Simon Callow, Vera Farmiga, and Alaqua Cox. The series picks off after the events of 2019’s Avengers: Endgame — as Barton must face the consequences of his time spent as the vigilante Ronin after his family was taken from him during the Snap.
If you’re wondering what’s up next for Phase Four of the MCU, blockbuster Eternals has finally premiered, and the new Spiderman movie Spider-Man: No Way Home is coming soon to theaters on December 17. Before streaming Hawkeye you can catch up on all the other Marvel movies and shows available on Disney+ here.
When Does Hawkeye Season Two Premiere?
As of right now, unfortunately, Marvel hasn’t announced anything about future Hawkeye seasons. But if we do end up with another season, it likely won’t be until after 2023, since that’s when Echo, the Disney+ series starring Hawkeye’s Maya Lopez (Alaqua Cox), comes out on the streamer. Echo doesn’t currently have a release date either, so there will likely be a bit of a wait.
