Gugu Mbatha-Raw Confirms ‘Loki’ Season 2 Return
On Monday, it was reported that season two of Marvel Studios’ Loki would begin production this Summer Pinewood Studios in England. While details on the series is unknown, one of the stars has confirmed a return.
While speaking with Good Morning America, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, who played Ravonna Renslayer, judge of the Time Variance Authority who oversaw the TVA on behalf of “He Who Remains” in season one, confirmed that she will be returning to for a second season, saying “I know there is a season two… I know that I’m in it…and that’s about all I can say!”
Last we saw Renslayer, who ultimately became the antagonist, she used a TemPad and opened a Timedoor, and grabbed her bag. As she was walking towards the Timedoor, Owen Wilson’s Mobius asked her where she was going, and she replied that she would be searching for free will. With that, Renslayer walked into the Timedoor and left the TVA.
Details on Loki season two are being kept under wraps; however, director Kate Herron will not be returning. Loki was expected to be a one-season run but was changed during production ultimately having the studio make changes to the final episode to open the doors for another season. The finale teased the introduction of the multiverse, which was explored further in Spider-Man: No Way Home, and even more Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which Tom Hiddleston will return as Loki.
Marvel Studios’ Loki features the God of Mischief as he steps out of his brother’s shadow in a new series that takes place after the events of Avengers: Endgame. Hiddleston returns as the title character, joined by Owen Wilson, Mbatha-Raw, Sophia Di Martino, Wunmi Mosaku, and Richard E. Grant. Michael Waldron is head writer. Loki, Marvel Studios’ original series, launched on Disney+ Wednesday, June 9, with all six episodes now available to stream now.
