Who’s in the cast of Loki?
Tom Hiddleston once again reprises his titular role as the Asgardian chaos agent,
The show will follow Loki’s adventures after he grabbed the Tesseract and flew back into time in space in Avengers: Endgame.
The cast also includes Owen Wilson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Sophia Di Martino, Wunmi Mosaku, and Richard E. Grant.
Kate Herron serves as the as director and Michael Waldron as head writer.
Speaking at San Diego Comic-Con in 2019, when Loki was first announced, Hiddleston teased, “You guys saw Avengers, right? So he’s still that guy,”
“And just about the last thing that happened to him was he got Hulk-smashed. So there’s a lot of psychological evolution that is still yet to happen…”
“This is new territory, a new world, new challenges, and I cannot wait to get started.”
Will there be a second season of Loki?
American film and TV producer Kevin Feige has been a very busy man over the past year and now has at least 17 projects on the go, ready to be released over the next two years.
And while a new season of television is expected every year, Kevin recently explained that all of the approaching Disney+ shows (including Wandavision and Falcon and the Winter Soldier) will “vary” – with some as one-offs and others with a “couple of years” between production.
He explained: “It will vary. There are some shows that have been built to further expand our storytelling and then go into features.”

The 47-year-old president of Marvel Studios added: “There are some shows that, while always interconnected, are being built with multiple seasons in mind.
“So it’ll vary the way a lot of I think great TV now varies, whether it’s a couple of years between seasons of Game of Thrones or Stranger Things, or one-offs like Queen’s Gambit.
“One of the fun things about streaming is the rules are loose, which allows for you to just follow creatively where you want to go.”
