With viewers still reeling from the show’s shocking ending twists, creator Jessica Gao has shared her thoughts on a possible sequel. Season 2 of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law The most recent Marvel Cinematic Universe series recounted the origin tale of Bruce Banner’s lawyer cousin Jennifer Walters, who gains Hulk powers after his blood becomes polluted with hers. Jennifer navigates her position as an advocate for super-powered beings, like Tim Roth’s Abomination, while also figuring out her own role in the world as a hero and trolls with a sinister purpose for her.
Tatiana Maslany played the eponymous character in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, starring Ginger Gonzaga, Jameela Jamil, Josh Segarra, Mark Ruffalo, Tim Roth, Benedict Wong, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Jon Bass, and Charlie Cox. While its visual effects and some of its storylines divided audiences, the MCU show ultimately received rave reviews from reviewers because of its formula-breaking writing, along with the fully meta final episode, wherein Jennifer meets the Kevin Feige-inspired artificial intelligence K.E.V.I.N. and totally rewrites the “initial” finale plans. Unlike most other MCU ventures, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law didn’t finish with any huge cliffhangers for its eponymous hero, leaving many fans wondering if the show will be renewed for a second season.
Following the series finale, ComicBook.com spoke with Jessica Gao about She-Hulk: Attorney at Law’s season 2 prospects. The creator of the MCU show did not clarify whether conversations for the show’s future were taking place, rather expressing a need to take a rest before continuing and compared creating the series to childbirth. Gao stated the following:
“I feel like this must be what it feels like for people who have had kids. This is how my favorite kids describe when they have their first baby and then everybody’s like, are you going to have another kid? And they’re like, I literally just gave birth. I’m in labor in delivery. I just gave birth. I’m still on a hospital bed. Give me a second. And that’s how I feel right now.”
Could Season 2 of She-Hulk take place without Jessica Gao?
With no viewership data to base the success of the show on, it’s uncertain what She-Hulk: Attorney at Law’s chances are for season 2, especially given the MCU series’ caustic blowback. Even if Marvel Studios chose to move onto another chapter of the series before Gao was ready, that doesn’t imply the project couldn’t continue without its original creator. Loki season 2 is now in production, with Eric Martin, a writer under creator Michael Waldron, now directing the writer’s room after the prior head writer went on to focus on developing Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Kevin Feige’s Star Wars, and now Avengers: Secret Wars.
If Loki season 2 lives up to expectations following its praised premiere, it may serve as evidence that a She-Hulk: Attorney at Law season 2 might go along without Gao if she wasn’t ready to rejoin the MCU. However, with writers like Michael Waldron and Jeff Loveness, who wrote Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and signed on for Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, having multiple projects at the studio, it appears likely that Marvel would want to try and bring Gao back if interested in renewing the show for a season 2. While fans wait for more information, they may watch She-Hulk: Attorney at Law season 1 on Disney+, which is currently available in its entirety.
