Loki Creator Hints Season 2 Could Have More Episodes

Posted 2022/04/22 10 0


Marvel Studios is currently on a hugely successful run with its Disney+ TV series. That is likely to continue with the second season of Loki, which is now in development with original series writer Michael Waldron. While it is still going to be some time before we see Tom Hiddleston return as the God of Mischief – barring a surprise appearance in either Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness or Thor: Love and Thunder – but when he does return for Loki season 2, there could potentially be a longer outing planned for the Disney+ show.

While Waldron wasn’t going into specifics, in an interview with The Playlist, he was asked whether the new season of Loki would look to stick to the six-episode run of the first. Waldron gave very little away by saying, “Time will tell.” Although not confirming or denying the length of the series, it is a sign that this kind of thing is in no way set in stone, and if the story requires it then any series could adjust its length to accommodate that.

During the discussion about Loki and his place in the MCU in the future, Waldron went on to say that the original series had “a million different endings” when it was expected to be a limited series. However, as other movies in the MCU developed, including the Waldron written Doctor Strange sequel, it became clear that there was more story to be told.

Loki Season 2 Will Continue The Character’s Multiverse Adventure

There is currently very little known about what the second season of Loki will hold or how it will fit into the MCU multiverse story that is going to be a big part of the next two years’ movies. With the first season ending on a cliffhanger that saw Loki being separated from Sylvie and discovering that Kang the Conqueror is now part of his world after Kang’s variant He Who Remains was killed by Sylvie, there are a lot of ways the story could go. What makes it interesting is the link of variants to Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and of Kang to Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, which could make both of those movies very important to the new season of Loki for different reasons.

What adds to the intrigue is that at one point, Jonathan Majors’ He Who Remains/Kang was not part of Loki’s finale. Without him, the series would have been pretty much a standalone series, with only limited connections to the wider Marvel Cinematic Universe story. How connected the series will remain is something that we can only wait and find out, but Moon Knight directors Aaron Moorehead and Justin Benson have said that it will be unexpected.

“[What’s] funny is, it does feel like Marvel would be willing to walk away unless it actually is something that they felt the unexpected. Like from Moon Knight, and especially because Moon Knight is a character where nobody knows almost anything about him yet… And everybody at Marvel and ourselves gets really excited when we are presented with the unexpected. We also, of course, hope that people watching feel the same way and we’re gonna bring all that to Loki.”
