Well, it seems that the God of Mischief’s upcoming series is not going to be a one-off. According to Justin Kroll at Deadline, the Disney+ series Loki will receive a second season. Kroll also revealed that Michael Waldron, who served as the head writer and creator on the first season, will return in “some capacity.”
This is the first time that we’ve heard of a Marvel Studios show getting a second season for Disney+. With the studio planning to release up to six shows a year, it really shouldn’t come as a surprise that this is happening.
As for plot details of the second season of the Tom Hiddleston led series, it’s anyone’s guess. Details at the moment for the first season are scarce as it is.
Loki’s status in the MCU at the moment is a little confusing. In 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War, he was killed by Thanos. But the following year in Avengers: Endgame, he was brought back when Earth’s Mightiest Heroes traveled back in time to the first Avengers film in 2012. The last we saw of him, he escaped the Avengers custody with the help of the Space Stone. It’s expected that this will be the setting for the series, where he went after escaping. Also, judging by the trailer, it’s expected to involve the Time Variance Authority.
No mention was given on exactly when the next season will be released. The first season is slated to drop on the Disney streaming service in May.
