Things are gearing up for everyone's favorite God of Mischief.
Filmmakers Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead have officially signed on to co-direct a majority of the episodes for the upcoming second season of Marvel Studios’ Loki.
Michael Waldron, the latter who wrote and served as showrunner in the first season, will executive produce the second season again along with Tom Hiddleston. Eric Martin, who was a staff writer on season 1, will write all six episodes.
Benson and Moorhead are best known for their smart, twisty sci-fi indie films like Synchronic, The Endless, Spring, and Resolution. The pair directed a couple of episodes of Moon Knight and things reportedly went so smoothly Marvel wanted them on other projects ASAP – the second season of Loki quickly came into play. Kate Herron served as director of the first season.
Loki is the first Marvel series to score a second season. Hiddleston is the only one officially set to return at present, but actor Owen Wilson indicated earlier this week he’s also coming back.
No word yet on if Loki season two ties into the events of the second Doctor Strange movie, but audiences can probably expect more multiversal timey-wimey shenanigans.
