That devious mischief god Loki has pulled his/their wiliest bit of trickery yet: getting renewed for a second season on Disney+. During the credits of the Marvel streaming show’s season-one finale on Wednesday, there is a shot of a Time Variance Authority dossier stamped with the words “LOKI WILL RETURN IN SEASON 2.” The series stars Tom Hiddleston in a reprise of his villain role from the Thor and Avengers movies, and its general conceit of timeline fuckery and infinite possible universes theoretically allows for it to play for multiple seasons. In a video posted on the official Loki Twitter account, star Tom Hiddleston introduced the finale episode, thanking fans and saying the finale will have “many answers to your questions,” and “likely many more questions.”
They also posted a video from the “voice of Miss Minutes,” who apparently isn’t a real talking clock-lady? What in the whole heck?!
Update, July 16, 12:45 p.m.: While the God of Mischief (and all his variants) will be returning for season two, Loki director and executive producer Kate Herron will not be at the helm. “I always planned to be just on for this and to be honest, season two wasn’t in the — that’s something that just came out and I’m so excited,” Herron told Deadline. “I’m really happy to watch it as a fan next season, but I just think I’m proud of what we did here and I’ve given it my all.”
