We may have just learned when the next season of Loki will begin production. According to the casting agency Backstage, filming for the second season will start sometime over the summer in the United Kingdom. If true, then this would likely put the Tom Hiddleston-led series in line to be released on Disney+ sometime in 2023.
Of course, the first season of Loki premiered on the streamer last June and concluded, after six episodes, on July 14. In the final moments of the cliffhanger finale, Sylvie (played Sophia Di Martino) betrayed Hiddleston’s Loki and killed the Kang variant known as “He Who Remains” (played by Jonathan Majors). This resulted in the Multiverse being sent into chaos and everyone at the TVA forget who Loki is.
Loki is one of two Marvel Studios produced shows (What If…?) to get a second season on the Disney streaming service. It’s currently not known if there will be a third season.
Days after the finale was released, it was revealed that director Kate Herron would not be back for the sophomore season. In the coming months, I’m sure we will learn who her replacement will be.
Before we see him in the second season, Hiddleston will appear as the God of Mischief in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (May 6, 2022). It’s also been reported that Di Martino’s Sylvie and Owen Wilson’s Mobius will also be in it.
