Disney+ has renewed Loki for their next season. The announcement came officially during the end credits of the last episode and season one finale. It is definitely happy news for Loki fans as he is coming back in the next season. During the mid-credits scene of the final episode, the anti-hero file was seen marked with a stamp that said, “Loki will return in season 2.” However, additional details about the upcoming Loki Season 2 were not shared.
In the live-action Marvel Universe series, Tom Hiddleston is starred as Loki. He is an Avengers villain, now turned into a hero. The storyline of the first season picks up where the Avengers Endgame left it. It follows Loki, the God of Mischief, who comes out of his Brother Thor’s shadow. Known stars such as WunmiMosaku, Owen Wilson, GuguMbatha-Raw, Sophia Di Martino, and Richard E. Grant will also appear in the show as important characters. The season is directed by Kate Herron and written by Michael Waldron. Loki is set in an adjacent world where the God of Mischief is a fish-out-of-water as he gets in trouble with the bureaucratic Time Variance Authority. This happened after absconding with the Tesseract.
Loki is the first of Marvel’s Disney+ scripted originals to score a formal renewal. Even before the news was revealed in the finale episode, Tom Hiddleston hinted towards this possibility. Quoting Tom Hiddleston, “I have learned, at this point, having said goodbye to the character more than twice, two and a half times maybe, to make no assumptions.”
However, the return of no other character has been announced yet by Disney. The release date for the next season is also not out yet. As Majors will star in Quantumania in 2023, there are high chances that the 2nd season will also be released in 2023.
Loki is the 3rd Marvel Universe’s TV series to debut on Disney+. WandaVision, was the first of the series that ended. WandaVision scored 23 Emmy nominations this Tuesday, which is an excellent beginning for Marvel’s first foray in the limited TV series category. We already know that Olsen will appear in Marvel’s upcoming movie Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness which will be released in coming March. Loki’s finale provided a perfect stage for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Tom Hiddleston’s Loki character is speculated to appear in the next Dr. Strange, but this is not officially confirmed yet. The busting finale has set the stage for the upcoming Spider-Man: Far From Home. It is rumored that apart from former villains Electro and Doctor Octopus, Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, will also appear in Marvel’s December release.
