In case you have not watched 'Loki' there are some spoilers ahead! Kate Herron, the one who directed the newest Disney+ series 'Loki' has revealed some sad news for the fans and talked about the upcoming Season 2.

So, this summer we watched Tom Hiddleston incarnate once again the God of Mischief and saw his adventures after that plot twist that happened in Avengers: Endgame when he took one Infinity Stone. So far so good, in this new series that is part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the third installment in this format after WandaVision and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier, we meet new characters and the actor behind them like Sophia Di Martino as Sylvie, Owen Wilson as Mobius, Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Ravonna, Yunmi Mosaku as Hunter B-15 and a bunch of Loki Variants that honestly stole our hearts.

However, while all the characters are more than endearing and are expected to return for Season 2, the one behind the camera, director Kate Herron has revealed to Deadline that the second installment is not among her plans. “I’m not returning,” the director told Deadline in an interview “I always planned to be just on for this, and to be honest, Season 2 wasn’t in the — that’s something that just came out, and I’m so excited. I’m really happy to watch it as a fan next season, but I just think I’m proud of what we did here and I’ve given it my all. I’m working on some other stuff yet to be announced.”

Are any of those other things be another Marvel project? She says no. “No, I’m just focused on my own stuff at the moment. I love Marvel and I’d love to work with them again, but my outing with Loki is what I’ve done with them.”

Kate Herron, who has also directed 4 episodes of the Netflix series 'Sex Education,' also revealed how he learned that a second season was happening, and as unbelievable as it sounds, she did not know about it almost until the very end. She detailed to Collider that they shot the series in two parts due to the pandemic, but notes that the decision was made by Marvel Studios and that everyone in the series felt more than honored because it was a way of acknowledging their work.

“So I would say the decision for that came from Marvel and Disney, and I thought it was just the highest compliment to everyone's work on the show. They were just excited by the stories and by the amazing work that the writers and the actors were doing.”

Does Kate Herron agree with a second season happening? Absolutely since she already knows that there are a lot of questions to answer (nothing new when talking about Marvel) “There are so many unanswered questions. it's like, where did Renslayer go? What are B-15's memories? Who is she? And also beyond that, where the hell is Loki? Yeah, I think there's definitely more road to travel. And as everyone knows, in the comics, even with six hours, we scratched the surface of who Loki is so I think there's so much more to be explored. “
