It’s been reported that Loki will be confirmed as bisexual in his upcoming series, with a season 2 already on the cards. Here’s everything we know about the show so far.

After Loki’s tragic death at the beginning of Avengers: Infinity War, fans refused to believe it was the end for the trickster. After all, he’d already ‘died’ twice before in the MCU and made it back alive.

With this track record, it came as no surprise that Avengers: Endgame gave the fan-favorite one more chance at life, but unraveled all of his character development in the process.

That being said, it did open up the opportunity for Loki to be the star of his very own series.

When will the Loki series be released?

Production for the first season of Loki was paused earlier this year due to the ongoing health crisis. However, it has recently resumed over in Atlanta, Georgia, with the show being expected to arrive on Disney Plus in spring 2021.

Loki has already been confirmed for a second season too, which will start production under the working title ‘Architect’ in January 2022.

Loki cast and plot

Tom Hiddleston will be returning to his role as Loki and will be joined by Owen Wilson, whose character is still unknown.

Richard E. Grant has also joined the cast, along with Sophia Di Martino, who has been spotted on set as a possible Lady Loki.

Having taken the Tesseract and escaped The Avengers in 2012, the show will pick up with Loki in an alternate timeline, taking fans through different time periods and possibly the multiverse in a post-Endgame MCU.

The show is also set to confirm that Loki is bisexual, according to reports from We Got This Covered, with him having both male and female love interests.

The TVA prison jumpsuit Loki is seen wearing in this short snippet references the ‘Time Variance Authority’, which is yet to have made an appearance in the MCU. Their main purpose is to keep an eye on time-travelers interfering with different timelines, which would tie in well with Loki causing trouble across history.

This will also link to Doctor Strange’s Multiverse of Madness, much like WandaVision and Spider-man 3.

Though there is no set date in place for the return of the God of Mischief, there are hopes that a trailer or images may arrive soon, building excitement for his return to the MCU.

Kate Mara reveals why she never returned to American Horror Story

Kate Mara has opened up about the reason she never returned to American Horror Story, and she thinks it has something to do with the character she played.

When the first season of Ryan Murphy’s hit FX series American Horror Story debuted back in 2010, it featured cast members that would go on to become synonymous with the franchise — stars like Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson, and Jessica Lange.

But one big name who never made a comeback was Kate Mara. In the first season, dubbed Murder House by fans, she played Hayden McClaine, the 22-year-old student and mistress of Ben Harmon who ended up meeting a grisly end when she threatened to expose their affair.

Mara’s had starring roles in Fox thriller 24, Netflix’s House of Cards, and the 2015 Fantastic Four reboot, so her star power certainly isn’t up for debate. Why then, hasn’t she ever returned to American Horror Story?

Kate Mara says fans “hate” her AHS character

Well, in a new interview with Collider, Mara revealed that it’s been radio silence since Murder House; she’s never been asked to come back, and she thinks it has something to do with the poor reputation of Hayden among fans of the show.

“No one invited me, I don’t know, I wasn’t invited back,” she said when asked why she hasn’t revisited the show since the first season.

“I don’t think people loved my character very much on that show, [but] I loved playing her. Who doesn’t want to play a sex-crazed ghost? But most people hate me on that show… which I take as a compliment.”

Fans are torn over Mara’s absence from the show, with one tweeting, “Bring her back Ryan [Murphy] I swear to God,” and another confessing, “I feel bad about it, but she played the part so well I can’t even look at her without getting p*ssed off.”

In a show where the villains are often remembered as the most iconic characters, it’s surprising Mara hasn’t been asked back. Hopefully that will happen soon, especially as Mara has popped up on other Ryan Murphy shows including Pose and Nip/Tuck.

Filming is currently underway on the next season of the show, and it’s expected to arrive in 2021. We’ve rounded up everything we know about Season 10 of American Horror Story, including cast members and potential themes.
