"When I started, there wasn't a discussion of Season 2, exactly. It was just that season of Loki. As we got deeper into production, everyone was very happy, and obviously there's so much to explore with Loki. It felt like we should continue the story. So I think the cliffhanger ending came in later in the process."
Sadly, Herron has recently confirmed that she will not be back for Loki season 2, with the filmmaker instead planning to watch the story unfold with the rest of the audience.
