Marvel’s superhero series Loki will return for season two at Disney+. The news was confirmed in Wednesday’s season one finale during the mid-credits scene.
The scene shows Loki’s case file being branded with a stamp: “LOKI WILL RETURN IN SEASON 2”. The streamer didn’t reveal further info beyond that.
The news comes after Tom Hiddleston, who stars as Loki in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, hinted at season two in a recent chat with Deadline.
“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,” said Hiddleston.
The story of Loki takes place after the events in 2019’s Avengers: Endgame and sees the titular character creating a new timeline after he steals the Tesseract. This gets him in trouble with Time Variance Authority, an organization that monitors timeline. At this point, the God of Mischief is offered a choice to either help fix his wrongdoings or get erased from existence.
The series, which also stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Wunmi Mosaku, Eugene Cordero, and Owen Wilson, among others, emerged as a big hit for Disney+. It was a critical success while having the most-watched premiere on the streamer.
Loki is the first Marvel series to get a season two order at Disney+. WandaVision, which centers on characters Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch and Vision, wrapped up in March and is considered to be a limited series. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, featuring Sam Wilson/Falcon and Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier, had its season one finale in April. However, there is still no confirmation regarding the new episodes.
