Michael Waldron-created Marvel series ‘Loki‘ will be airing very soon; it’s now official!
As loyal fans know, the series, based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name, was officially announced for the first time back in November 2018. At that time, it was also declared that Tom Hiddleston would reprise his role as the titular character from the film series. Since that date, the fanbase of the character created by writer Stan Lee has been waiting for the series.
Shortly after this exciting announcement Disney CEO Bob Iger said in a statement that the series would be centered on ‘Loki’ and the series would show the relationship between him and his brother ‘Thor.’ After that, filming for the series, starring Owen Wilson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and Wunmi Mosaku alongside Hiddleston, had started back in January 2020 in Atlanta, Georgia, however, it was halted due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Fortunately, back in September, the production started again, and the entire shooting completed just in a month. After that, Disney announced the release date of the series; ‘Loki’ is coming out on June 9, through Disney+!
Will ‘Loki’ be released weekly?
Television series produced by Marvel Studios and written by Waldron and Kate Herron will consist of 6 episodes, and the new episodes will be airing weekly through Disney+, after debuting on June 9. As fans might remember, in 2019, it was confirmed that the first season of the series would run for six episodes which are 45 minutes in length.
Besides, we have a piece of good news; the second season which has been set to begin filming in January 2022, is now in development.
