- Season one of Marvel’s Disney Plus series titled “Loki” concluded in July.
- There’s more to look forward to when the show returns for its second season.
- Tom Hiddleston will reprise his role as Loki, but Kate Herron won’t return as the director.
Season one of Marvel’s “Loki” came to an end in July, but there’s plenty more left to be explored when the Disney Plus series returns for season two.
The six-episode first season, starring Tom Hiddleston as the titular God of Mischief, concluded with a jaw-dropping finale that left viewers with many unanswered questions.
Here’s what we know about season two.
Hiddleston said that his character will probably continue searching for Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino), his variant
On the finale, Loki and Sylvie finally reached the ominous Citadel at the End of Time and met He Who Remains (Jonathan Majors). After kissing Loki, Sylvie sent him away to the Time Variance Authority HQ — though it appears to be one from another timeline, where the versions of Agent Mobius (Owen Wilson) and Hunter B-15 (Wunmi Mosaku) don’t know who he is.
With no one standing in her way, Sylvie killed He Who Remains and unleashed the multiverse.
“I don’t think he will stop searching [for Sylvie] now,” Hiddleston told Empire Magazine, according to Screen Rant. “He feels that this is something he has done, a mistake that he has made, and he’s invested in setting it right.”
Season 1 director Kate Herron won’t be returning
“I always planned to be just on for this, and to be honest, season two wasn’t in the — that’s something that just came out, and I’m so excited,” she told Deadline. “I’m really happy to watch it as a fan next season, but I just think I’m proud of what we did here and I’ve given it my all.”
It’s also unclear if head writer Michael Waldron will pen the second season.
“You know, it remains to be seen,” Waldron told Insider’s Jason Guerrasio. “Time will tell.”
The release date hasn’t been announced yet
In August, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige told Collider that “it is underway” and they’ll soon begin looking for a director.
“We’re developing it as we speak,” he said. “The hope is that much of the same team will return. Kate is going on to bigger and better things, so the director search will begin shortly.”
Hiddleston also shared his enthusiasm for where the show will go, telling Marvel.com: “I am so grateful that we got to do season one, I still am not quite able to process that we get to have another go at this. I am so excited by the possibilities. We are already in discussions. Deep, deep, deep discussions. I can’t wait to get started.”
