Production on the second season of Marvel Studios’ Loki series is reported to begin this summer at Pinewood Studios, and it appears one of the first seasons’ biggest stars will be there when it happens. Gugu Mbatha-Raw, the British actress who played TVA judge and series antagonist Ravonna Renslayer, has confirmed that she will indeed be returning for the show’s next batch of episodes. During an interview with Michael Strahan on Good Morning America, Mbatha-Raw was asked about her involvement with the future of the Disney+ exclusive. Her response, accompanied by a huge smile, was short and straightforward:
I know there is a season two… I know that I’m in it…and that’s about all I can say!Gugu Mbatha-Raw
The last time we saw her character, Renslayer was departing the collapsing TVA to search for her own free will. It’s unknown what became of her after this, but the pages of Marvel comic books may give fans an idea of where her character arc is headed. Ravonna famously becomes the love of Jonathan Majors‘ Kang the Conqueror, with their relationship being a major plot point in his villainous storyline. It remains to be seen if the Marvel Cinematic Universe will take Mbatha-Raw‘s portrayal down this path, but her devout belief in He Who Remains seemed to be a good hint at it’s possibility.
Loki was the first Marvel-Disney+ series to get an officially announced second season renewal. There is no set release date for the next installments of the show, but with production supposedly starting soon, fans shouldn’t have to wait much longer for more information.
