Loki Season 2: Will It Or Won’t It?
The Season 2 speculation surrounding Loki speaks volumes to Tom Hiddleston’s performance as Marvel fans’ favorite anti-heroic trickster. Loki has died so many times and returned that it’s only right to assume there’s even more to his story. Now, the speculation has gotten so loud that Hiddleston had no choice but to throw his perspective out there. While speaking to Total Film about a possible second season, the Loki star said:
At this point, I have learned that for me to have any expectations is futile and a fool’s errand. Having said goodbye to the character once, twice, three times, I do not know what the future holds. But I’m excited to find out. I think we could never have seen 10 years ahead.
Tom Hiddleston’s character has been resurrected and killed so many times over the last decade. And now, even he is unsure what the MCU has in store for him and Loki. The actor’s apparent uncertainty speaks to the truly unpredictable nature of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Marvel Studios’ plans for it.
The studio has made it noticeably clear that shows such as Loki serve the purpose of pushing the MCU forward by telling specific stories that link to the films. With this in mind, a second season may not be necessary.

The time-traveling nature of Loki might allow for another season. Especially, after the events of Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness and that rumored timeline-diverging adventure in Spider-Man: No Way Home. Considering the direction Kevin Feige and Marvel seem to be going with the multiverse, Loki Season 2 could fit right in with those plans. But before fans can get a second season, they need to watch the first season when it arrives on June 9th on Disney+.
