As the fan favorite villain from the Marvel Cinematic Universe prepares for his glorious solo-project, producers on Loki are teasing the show may last more than a single season. According to ComicBook, Loki producer Nate Moore (executive producer, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier) has described the vast mythology and comic book lore that the series intends to cover as being fodder for a multiple-season show.
Moore spoke to IndieWire about the upcoming series, stating “The one that comes to mind — and that probably isn’t a secret — I think there’s a lot of storytelling in Loki that’s really irreverent and clever and cool, but also lends itself to multiple seasons in a way where it’s not a one-off.” (ComicBook)

“Tom Hiddleston,” Moore continued, “I think, is doing some of his best work on that show. It really is kind of amazing. I think of all the great stuff he’s done, but this show is going to show such different sides and really the true scope of his range. I think that show is going to surprise a lot of people.” (ComicBook)
If Loki does become a series with multiple seasons, it will become the first Marvel Disney+ Original show to do so, as WandaVision has been all but confirmed to be a single season series and there is currently no word on whether The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will return for a second season after the series concludes on April 23. This is reflected in the way that Disney is submitting its two existing Marvel shows to the Emmys’ nomination board. According to ComicBook, WandaVision has been entered into consideration for the limited series category, making it a clear one-and-done show. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is will be submitted to the nomination board as a drama series, leaving some ambiguity for the future of the show.

Loki is set to begin streaming on Disney+ on June 11. The series will see Tom Hiddleston (Avengers: Infinity War) return as Loki and will follow the god of mischief as he assists the Time Varience Authority, led by Owen Wilson (The Royal Tenenbaums), to fix the timelines destroyed when Loki stole the tesseract in the 2012 timeline featured in Avengers: Endgame.
