Loki season 3: the MCU show's head writer is already talking about the possibility (or lack thereof)

Season two offers a definitive end to the Trickster God's adventures in time.

Do you know what TV needs more of? Endings. Every story needs one, even if the characters go on to do something else in the future. Some characters get multiple endings. Loki, for example, has faked his death or been inadvertently resurrected multiple times over the years, but it looks like the Disney+ TV show is finally drawing a curtain on everyone’s favorite trickster god.

Loki Head Writer Eric Martin didn’t officially rule out the possibility of a season 3 of the show – there is nothing that the executives at Disney like more than milking their intellectual property for all it is worth – but he made it clear during an interview with Cinema Blend that the story he wanted to tell with the character is effectively closed.

“We approached this as like two halves of a book,” Martin explained when asked about the future of the Loki show. “Season one, first half. Season two, we close the book on Loki and the TVA. Where it goes beyond that, I don’t know. I just wanted to tell a full and complete story across those two seasons.”

The season two Loki finale is still firmly in our minds, so of course we’re curious if there is more story here to tell. A Loki season three hasn’t been officially confirmed as happening or not yet, so we just have to wait to see what happens. The show’s approach to time travel and the MCU Multiverse has been refreshing and fun, but it is also good to see a story come to a planned close. Tom Hiddleston’s Loki could always pop up in future Marvel projects, possibly getting back to his roots as a villain, but this chapter of his story has been closed.
