Will there be a Loki Season 3?
Whilst Loki Season 3 has yet to be confirmed, it's definitely a possibility that there could be a third instalment. Speaking to IndieWire in April 2021, executive producer Nate Moore explained they had envisioned "multiple" seasons.
Moore said: "I think there’s a lot of storytelling in Loki that’s really irreverent and clever and cool, but also lends itself to multiple seasons in a way where it’s not a one-off.
He continued: "Tom Hiddleston, I think, is doing some of his best work on that show. It really is kind of amazing. I think of all the great stuff he’s done, but this show is going to show such different sides and really the true scope of his range. I think that show is going to surprise a lot of people."
