Though Marvel hasn’t stated something official but, it’s sounding more and more seemingly that the just-concluded second season of Disney+ TV sequence Loki can be its final. Each star Tom Hiddleston and sequence author Eric Martin have given statements to press surrounding the present’s just-released second-season finale, expressing a way of finality towards the story of a time-tossed model of the beloved Marvel villain, and his encounters with the mysterious Time Variance Authority.
Take, as an example, feedback Hiddleston made on The Tonight Present final night time, telling Jimmy Fallon and his viewers that the present’s finale isn’t simply the tip of two seasons of TV, however “a conclusion to 6 movies, and 12 episodes, and 14 years of my life.” Which feels like the types of factor you say while you’re not essentially fielding too many requests to place the horns again on and provides one other speech about “wonderful goal,” proper?
In the meantime, Martin, who’s each an govt producer and head author for the sequence, gave an interview to CinemaBlend final week that, once more, didn’t explicitly say “We’re completely not doing a 3rd season,” however implied it about as a lot because it’s potential to. “We approached this as like two halves of a e-book,” Martin stated. “Season one, first half. Season two, we shut the e-book on Loki and the TVA. The place it goes past that, I don’t know. I simply wished to inform a full and full story throughout these two seasons.”
That’s earlier than we get into the textual content of the episode itself, which, with out stepping into spoilers, fairly successfully concludes the story of Loki (in a approach that this reviewer, at the very least, discovered surprisingly satisfying). There’s additionally the truth that Loki getting a second season was a fairly bizarre outlier within the first place; Disney+ has all the time handled its Marvel reveals extra like miniseries than conventional TV, doing six-episode restricted runs. Loki is the one one to have truly acquired a second season up to now, even when the Moon Knight followers are nonetheless sniffing round for a potential continuation, and Kathryn Hahn’s WandaVision spin-off remains to be within the works.
