Herron, who pushed for Loki have some recognition of the canon quirkiness of the main character, said Deadline during an interview that she would not return despite the series announcing a season two.
“I always planned to be fair for that, and to be honest, Season 2 wasn’t in the – it’s something that just came out, and I’m so excited,” she said. declared. “I’m really happy to watch him as a fan next season, but I just think I’m proud of what we’ve done here, and I gave it my all. I’m working on other stuff that hasn’t been announced yet.
She went on to say, “I’m just focused on my own business right now. I love Marvel and would love to work with them again, but my date with Loki is what I did with them.
Herron has been very accessible on social media, which has been both a blessing and a curse. She was able to provide insight into the battles she’s had to get the weird characters in the MCU recognized.
“I think everyone wanted to recognize it,” she said. “It was really about giving care and consideration and doing it the right way. I think everyone knew it was going to be a pretty big moment. So it was really about doing it in a respectful way. And honor it.
However, fans have also chosen, at times, to make it their scapegoat for other failures in the series. All this ignores that she had limited control over the primary choices.
In an interview with Variety she explained that even the cliffhanger wasn’t something that was initially part of the fabric of the story:
“When I first started, there was no discussion of Season 2, exactly,” she says. “It was just this ‘Loki’ season. As we went deeper into production, everyone was very happy, and there is obviously so much to explore with Loki. It was like we had to continue the story. So I think the end of the cliffhanger came later in the process.
Loki polarized to the point that everyone is still trying to figure out if it was good or not. I think that’s one of the things that really interests me about the show. While I certainly agree with most of the reviews, I also think Tom Hiddleston did a great job wearing this show. I hope that even with Herron leaving, the things she fought for, gender parity and some bi representation, won’t be lost as he moves on to a second season.
