Kate Herron, Director of Season 1 of Loki on Netflix, has confirmed that the show’s finale has been completed. Kate had previously hinted at this in a tweet back in June. Back then, she said that “the season is almost over, and we are working hard to get it perfect.” With just two episodes left, Kate tweeted again to confirm that the final episode was done.
“The LOKI season finale was just finished,” Kate posted on June 20th.
The news will please many fans who have been waiting for an update from Kate about whether or not the first season would be returning for another run.
Marvel Show “Loki” Release Date
Marvel TV series “Loki” aired its first episode on Disney+ on 9th June 2021. The first season will comprise six episodes. And stars Tom Hiddleston as the titular character, with a supporting cast that includes Elizabeth Olsen, Rachael Taylor, and more. Kate Herron has directed all six episodes, which have been written by Jantje Friese (who won an Emmy for her work on Black Mirror).
About the show
The show follows Loki after he saves Earth from Thanos’s invasion in Avengers: Infinity War at great personal cost. Not only does this mean his time in space with Thor. But it also means abandoning his position; as king of Asgard – one thing fans can be sure of is that there are going to be plenty of sparks; with his brother, Thor. Kate Herron has said of the show that “Loki is not a hero,” and “the series will explore both sides of him.”
I know it sounds like things are going to get real, but Loki’s sidekick in this story – who he often relies on for advice or moral support during tough decisions – may be even more important than you think.
The other cast have been equally eager; to talk about how much they love working alongside; Tom Hiddleston (who some fans might recognise from BBC One dramas The Night Manager and John le Carré’s Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy). James D’Arcy, who plays Loki’s right-hand man turned nemesis Sigurdsson says:
The story will follow the Norse god of mischief and chaos, who is banished to Earth by his father, Odin. Loki has spent a good part of his time in exile trying to find a way back home, but he also finds himself entangled with new threats that could have destructive consequences for both Asgard and Earth.
Director Kate Herron about Loki’s finale
Kate Herron was quoted as saying, “I’m thrilled we get to explore other parts of this complex character,” when she spoke about her decision to direct season one’s finale episode on June 20th(as mentioned previously). She is a British TV director with experience in both theatre and film and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Kate has directed episodes of Doctor Who, The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, Jekyll & Hyde, Misfits, and many more great series!
In season one, we will explore the consequences Loki faces for his actions while he’s on Earth. With him trying to find ways back home – He’ll also be entangled in new threats that could have devastating consequences for Asgard.
Did Kate Herron release any spin-off ideas about Loki’s Season finale?
In Kate’s words: “I’m not sure, I think that the finale is going to be quite self-contained. I can’t really tell you what else might happen after it.” Kate was also asked whether she has any spin-off ideas for Loki and her answer was a simple one-“No.” Kate knows how much we love Loki, so maybe there is some hope of seeing him again in future seasons!
Kate Herron said: “It would have been interesting if he had discovered his human side. But then that wouldn’t be your standard superhero story either.”

Is Marvel’s “Loki” worth binge-watching?
Yes! Kate Herron does an amazing job of bringing Loki to life in a new and exciting way. The show might be over now, but there is still plenty for you to binge-watch. Unlike the Marvel movies, Kate spent two years on this project, so it was able to go into detail that we have never seen before in other Marvel properties.
The only disappointment I got from watching “Loki” were questions left unanswered by the end of Season One. These could all be answered if Kate was given another season or spin-off series with his character.
