Series starring the God of Cheating (Tom Hiddleston), Loki will have a second season. The renewal announcement was made in the credits of the last episode of the first year, released this Wednesday (14) on Disney+. Marvel’s production set a record on the platform right on its debut.
In the credits of the sixth episode, entitled For All Time. Always, a stamp appears on the character sheet with the warning: “Loki will return for season two”.
The first episode in history had 890,000 views of streaming subscriptions in the United States. The number of sessions was the highest, in a 24-hour period, ever recorded by a Marvel production on Disney+, surpassing the record for Falcão and the Winter Soldier, which had 759,000 on its opening day, March 19.
Loki’s success made the platform change the release strategy of its original series. Productions used to stream on Fridays, but the good results of the Marvel anti-hero adventure — with episodes available on Wednesdays — prompted the change in premiere dates. The new Disney+ attractions, cases of live-actions and animations, started to be presented in the middle of the week.
Loki takes place right after the protagonist steals the Tesseract in Avengers: Ultimatum (2019). He is called to give explanations at the AVT, a bureaucratic organization that exists outside of time and space, and is forced to answer for his crimes. Under the tutelage of agent Mobius M. Mobius (Owen Wilson), the protagonist must choose between facing the exclusion of reality or helping to capture an even greater threat.
The main cast of the attraction also includes names such as Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Sophia Di Martino, Wunmi Mosaku and Richard E. Grant. Michael Waldron is the main screenwriter.
