The MCU’s latest streaming series, Loki, just aired its final episode today — and already Marvel fans can’t wait for more. If you love Loki (Tom Hiddleston), Owen Wilson (TVA Agent Mobius M. Mobius), Sylvie/Lady Loki (Sophia di Martino), and the rest of the cast, you’re in luck. Loki has just been confirmed for a second season!
The good news was confirmed creatively, with a stamp on Time Variance Authority paperwork — Loki’s variant case file, in fact — mid-way through the season finale’s end credits.
The fact that there will be a Loki Season 2 is not surprising, as reports that Marvel President Kevin Feige and his team have been pushing for at least three seasons of the hit Marvel Cinematic Universe series have been running rampant for months. So, while we expected that multiple seasons were on the way, getting confirmation straight from the source is still exciting.
Although we know few details about the upcoming season of the show, there has been confirmation that head writer Michael Waldron will return in “some capacity”. Waldron is also busy on Kevin Feige’s Star Wars movie, however, so it remains to be seen just how involved he will be in Loki’s continuing adventures in the Marvel Multiverse.
CBS-owned ComicBook.com has previously teased that Loki Season 2 could start filming in January 2022. If that proves to be true, it likely won’t debut on Disney+ until at least fall 2022.
It is not yet known if the Loki variants that were introduced into the Multiverse in Loki Episode 4 (“The Nexus Event”) and Episode 5 “(Journey Into Mystery”) — including Kid Loki (Jack Veal), Alligator Loki, and Classic Loki (Richard E. Grant) — will return next season.
Loki is officially described as:
In Marvel Studios’ “Loki,” the mercurial villain Loki (Tom Hiddleston) resumes his role as the God of Mischief in a new series that takes place after the events of “Avengers: Endgame.” Kate Herron directs and Michael Waldron is head writer.
Are you looking forward to Season 2 of Loki? Do you think it will air before or after The Mandalorian Season 3?
