Loki’s the first second season for any Marvel Studios-produced Disney+ series yet unlike other shows that try to keep a consistent team throughout, a completely new team is taking over. Kate Herron, the director who initially pitched the show, has left with Moon Knight directing duo Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead taking over. Even head writer Michael Waldron has passed the torch to Eric Martin. Luckily, one member remains according to a new report.
According to Inverse, it looks like composer Natalie Holt is set to return in the second season to bring back the iconic soundtrack that defined the series. She’s been quite busy with work on Obi-Wan Kenobi and going on to tackle Batgirl next, but it’s great to know she’ll also be back for Loki after giving it its distinctive sound. So, we might expect the same direction of the soundtrack for the series as we had in the past.
We still know very little about the direction of this series, but the base concept is probably one of the few that could potentially keep going no matter where the MCU continues to evolve. With the multiverse unleashed after the actions of Sylvie in the first season, who knows what trouble the TVA and a once again stranded Loki might have to face.
With a new team at the helm, it does seem like we’ll get some twists and new additions for this season to make it stand out from the previous one. Whatever direction they take, we can’t wait to see how it might tie into the overarching tease of Kang the Conqueror’s arrival implies.
