It's a great day for 'Loki' fans, or just Marvel Cinematic Universe fans in general, with the arrival of the final episode of the Disney+ series landing today.
What makes today even greater though, is the reveal that 'Loki' season two is definitely in the pipeline at the streaming service. Revealed halfway through the end credits of the final episode of season one, there is a stamp placed on the anti-hero's case file which reads: "Loki will return in season 2".
Now, we haven't yet been able to catch the sixth and final episode of the series, so we can't yet speculate as to what capacity 'Loki' will return in. Will Tom Hiddleston's "regular" Loki survive long enough to return, or will Sophia Di Martino's Sylvie/Lady Loki helm the next series? Will they team up? Or will Richard E. Grant get his wish granted and be back for a Classic Loki and Alligator Loki series?
In the build-up to its release, the team behind 'Loki' hinted that the series could spawn multiple seasons and spin-offs. And given how successful the six-episode series has been, Disney would be mad not to cash in on more god of mischief madness.
Marvel Studios VP of Production and Development, Nate Moore, previously said to IndieWire that because 'Loki' is so "irreverent and clever and cool" that it "lends itself to multiple seasons in a way where it's not a one-off".
In other Disney+ news, the streaming service managed to claim 71 Emmy Award nominations for the upcoming ceremony this September. 'The Mandalorian' came out on top with 24 nods, pipping 'WandaVision' to the post with its 23 nominations. 'Loki' will have to wait until next year until it will be eligible to be included.
The entire season one of 'Loki' is available to stream on Disney+ now.
