Loki season two finds some momentum as directing duo Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead (The Endless, Resolution) are to spearhead the Marvel series, via Deadline. The new change comes after original director Kate Herron (Sex Education) departed the series after season one.
According to Deadline, the second season of Loki was confirmed during the end credits of the season one finale, and Marvel Studios started developing the new season back in August. The studio was also in search of a new director. However, the series is probably not expected to return until 2023.
Star Tom Hiddleston (The Thor series, Avengers) and season one writer Michael Waldron (Loki, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness) will serve as executive producers of season two, and Eric Martin (The Other Mother) will write.
Plot details are being kept under wraps, but it is expected that Loki season two will pick up from the cliffhanger in the finale, where Loki finds himself in a very different TVA led by Kang the Conqueror (Jonathon Majors).
Loki will be the first Marvel-Disney+ series to receive a second season, following What If…? which is set to debut its second season this year. All other series that ran in 2021 were limited series. So far, Hiddleston is the only cast member confirmed to return.
Benson and Moorhead had previously worked on The Twilight Zone on Paramount+ and Archive 81 on Netflix. At Marvel Studios, the duo worked on a couple of episodes of Moon Knight, starring Oscar Isaac (Dune, X-Men: Apocalypse), which is set to premiere on March 30.
Sources close to Deadline said that Marvel executive Kevin Feige was so impressed with their work on Moon Knight, he tapped them on for Loki season two.
Loki season two will stream on Disney+. Season one can be streamed now.
