Loki Season 1: Finale
Loki’s freshman finale, which aired in July 2021, pitted Loki and Sylvie against He Who Remains, an omniscient being who warned that his death would spark an all-out, multiversal war, with the emergence of infinite variants of himself. Despite these warnings, Sylvie killed He Who Remains anyway, causing chaos on the Sacred Timeline.
As previously stated, director Kate Herron, who directed all six episodes of Loki’s first season, will not return for Season 2. “It’s a lot for one director to do six hours, especially in the Marvel way,” she told TVLine last year. We lacked the showrunner system. We ran it like a big movie, which I’ll be eternally grateful for because it was a huge opportunity for me. But I threw a lot of things at it.”
Loki Season 2 is Officially Confirmed…
Fortunately, yes. Loki has been officially renewed for a second season on Disney+. The exciting news was revealed during the finale’s end credits when a case file was stamped with the words “Loki will return in season 2.”
What Is Loki Season 2 Cast?
We now know that villain-turned-hero Loki and Sylvie, as well as Owen Wilson’s Mobius, will return in season 2. Also likely to return are Gugu Mbatha-Ravonna Raw’s Renslayer and Wunmi Mosaku’s Hunter B-15. Majors could certainly reprise his role as He Who Remains/Kang the Conqueror, but his future is uncertain given his confirmed appearance in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantum Mania.
Deadline also confirmed that Blindspotting’s Rafael Casal will play an undisclosed but significant role in season 2.
Loki season 1 director Kate Herron will not return to lead the second season, she has revealed. she said, “I’m really proud to have been part of Loki’s story. I gave it everything in my heart and my soul. I’m excited to see what fresh eyes will bring.”
Even so, Herron hinted that fans can expect a bigger storyline for Di Martino’s Sylvie in the next chapter: “We leave her in the Citadel, and she looks shell-shocked and full of pain, and she’s on a much earlier part of her journey [than Loki] in terms of self-healing, so I think it’ll be really fun to see where she ends up going.”
When Will Season 2 Be Released?
Disney has yet to confirm an official release date for Season 2, and with so much still to come in the MCU, pinpointing an exact timeline is difficult. Because Majors is set to star in Quantumania in 2023, the next season of Loki is likely to arrive before or around that time.
The second season is currently in production, and DiMartino, Wilson, and Hiddleston were recently spotted dressed up at a McDonald’s.

What Does The Ending Mean For The MCU Going Forward?
Michael Waldron, Loki’s head writer, spoke with Marvel.com about Majors’ unexpected appearance. “Knowing that Kang was going to be the next big cross-movie villain, and because he is a time-traveling, multiversal adversary, it just made so much sense,” he explained. “I came up with that big multiversal war mythology and pitched it to our producers one day in the room.” ‘Yeah, let’s go for it,’ they said. We knew we’d end up meeting the man behind the curtain. And then it was up to us to make sure that meeting delivered.”
Marvel fans, buckle up. The universe is in jeopardy once more, and this time Steve Rogers isn’t there to restore order. It’s going to be an exciting ride.
