***Spoiler Alert***

The finale of the Tom Hiddleston-starring Marvel spin-off was released on July 14 and appeared to confirm the show will be returning for a second run at Disney+.

"Loki will return in season 2," the stamp reads, in red capital letters.

The Marvel spin-off series has been a hit at Disney+ with the opening episode setting a new record for the streaming platform by accumulating an estimated 731 million minutes of viewing time.

The six-episode series stars Tom Hiddleston in the titular role of the Asgardian god, a role he has inhabited in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since 2011.

The first episode of the off-beat series sees Loki swiping the Tesseract in Avengers: Endgame. He is taken into custody by the Time Variance Authority, a bureaucratic organization that carries out the proper flow of time.

Here he meets the amiable Agent Mobius (Owen Wilson) who enlists Loki to find a dangerous variant who's been causing chaos all over the Sacred Timeline.

The strong cast also includes Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Sophia Di Martino, Wunmi Mosaku, and Richard E. Grant.

Further details about a second run have not yet been released by Disney+.
