We’ve known that Marvel Studios was working on a Loki series for Disney+ since last fall.

Even though Loki may have died at the beginning of Avengers: Infinity War, Marvel Studios isn’t done playing with Thor’s mischievous adopted brother. Loki is one of several new shows coming to the Disney+ streaming service launching later this year, but it won’t arrive until the spring of 2021.
