In an interview with Deadline, Loki season one’s director Kate Herron revealed she won’t be coming back for the second season.
The instant hit series from Marvel Cinematic Universe, Loki, revolving around the titular anti-hero, announced it will be coming back for season two. In the season one finale, this surprising information was revealed in true Marvel style: bouncing this tidbit on the unassuming viewers in the post-credits scene.
Tom Hiddleston, Sophia Di Martino and Jonathan Majors who essay the roles of Loki, Sylvie (a variant of Loki) and Kang the Conqueror, are headed for a comeback for the season but unfortunately, the director and executive producer of season one, Kate Herron, will not be coming back.
Herron directed all six episodes of season one and brilliantly introduced all the new concepts and “Season 2 wasn’t in the — that’s something that just came out”, said Herron, adding that she is excited to watch it as a fan and is proud of what the cast and crew did on this project.
She also said, “I’m working on some other stuff yet to be announced.”
When asked if she will be involved with another marvel project, she replied saying, she is focused on her stuff at the moment. She expressed her love for Marvel and said she would love to work with them again.
Jonathan Majors will next be seen in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, reprising his role as Kang the Conqueror. Majors was first introduced in the finale of Loki’s first season, which has set a domino effect in motion.
Tom Hiddleston as Loki will be seen alongside Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange: Multiverse of Madness.
There is no new information as of now on Loki season two. The first season of the series can be streamed online on Disney+ Hotstar.
