According to Deadline, a second season is on the way and Michael Waldron will return to oversee the story for the yet-to-be-confirmed second instalment. He will also write the script for the Kevin Feige-produced Star Wars movie.
Tom Hiddleston is returning to play Loki in the TV series. ""I know this character now. I feel that the audience knows him. And playing him - and playing him truthfully, but presenting him with new challenges, which then I'd have to change him in different ways, is the most exciting aspect of it," he told MTV.
"You've got his very specific gifts. His intelligence, treachery, his mischief, his magic, and then seeing him come up against more formidable opponents, the like of which he has never seen or known. I wish I could tell you what happens, but I can't."
Loki is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), sharing continuity with all the other films of the franchise. The series takes place after the events of the film Avengers: Endgame (2019), in which an alternate version of Loki created a new timeline.
Owen Wilson, Sophia Di Martino, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Sasha Lane, and Wunmi Mosaku also star. Filming began in January 2020 in Atlanta, Georgia, but stopped in March 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. Production resumed in September 2020 and the show is still on track to premiere later this year.
In other Marvel news, there are several films in phase 4 of the MCU that are set to premiere later this year. As things currently stand, Black Widow, starring Scarlett Johansson, will be Marvel's next blockbuster on 7th May 2021.
Two months later Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings will be released on 9th July 2021. In the latter months of the year, Eternals, which was originally slated to be released in November 2020 will premiere 5th November 2021. Finally, the untitled Spider-Man: Far From Home sequel will be out in time for Christmas on 17th December 2021.
