LOKI Season 2 Scheduled To Begin Production Next Month With "Entire Cast" Set To Return
During last night's upfronts, Marvel Studios' chief Kevin Feige revealed that production on the second season of Loki is scheduled to commence in a few weeks, with the "entire cast" set to return.
So far, Loki is the only MCU-set Disney+ series to be given a second season, which isn't much of a surprise when you take its impressive viewing figures into account.
During last night's Disney Upfronts, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige confirmed a recent report that the first season of Loki set the record for the most-watched Marvel series on the streaming service, adding that he believes the show's success was down to a “bold swing.”
Feige said he felt the “wild ride paid off,” before announcing that production on Loki's sophomore run is scheduled to begin in a few weeks with Tom Hiddleston and the "entire cast" set to return.
This isn't exactly a massive surprise, of course, but it's nice to have confirmation that the whole gang will be back in action.
The season finale of Loki concluded with Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino) following through on her plan to kill "He Who Remains" (Jonathan Majors), splintering the Sacred Timeline and causing the rebirth of The Multiverse in the process. We then saw the God of Mischief (Hiddleston) arrive at what he believed to be the familiar surro9unding of The TVA, only to discover that he'd actually entered a reality ruled over by another Kang Variant.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness scribe Michael Waldron will not return, with Eric Martin, who penned "The Nexus Event" and "For All Time. Always" episodes, taking over as Head Writer.
