The first episode of Loki finally aired, and it’s everything we could have hoped for. As expected, Tom Hiddleston is awesome and we’re already intrigued with Mobius M. Mobius played by Owen Wilson. Fans enjoyed the first episode so much they’re already wondering about a Loki season 2.
None of the other Disney+ series so far have gotten a second season yet. WandaVision was always billed as a limited series, with only one season. The Falcon And The Winter Soldier is a little more complicated. It hasn’t been ruled out, but it hasn’t been confirmed either.
Loki will be getting six episodes for its first season, though we wish it was getting a few more. The series will explore Loki, the version that escaped during Endgame, and his time escapades. Loki is recruited by Time Variance Authority to help hunt a variant.
The head writer of the Loki series, Michael Waldron, says that “time will tell” whether Loki gets a second season. If they’re basing it on performance we have no doubt Loki will do incredibly well.
Waldron spoke with Murphy’s Multiverse where he was asked about a second season for Loki. He promises that regardless of what happens with a second season the first season of Loki will tell a full story.
“It was really always my hope and intention with this to tell a complete story with this season,” Waldron said. “Season one would stand on its own and, you know, is there more story to tell in the future? I don’t know, time will tell.”
Hiddleston has also been asked about a second season of the series while doing a press tour for Loki. It seems like even Hiddleston has no idea what happens to Loki once the credits roll for the final episode of Loki.
“At this point, I have learned that for me to have any expectations is futile and a fool’s errand. Having said goodbye to the character once, twice, three times, I do not know what the future holds. But I’m excited to find out. I think we could never have seen 10 years ahead… However, that would be to underestimate the intelligence of Kevin Feige! Maybe he did see into the future, and he predicted all this, and, in fact, he works for the TVA and reality is unfolding as it should, and we’re all just along for the ride…” he told Games Radar a month ago.
