Such an achievement will always bring happiness and a sense of accomplishment, however, the wrapping of Loki was completed in a sentimental location.
The British director states that she completed the post-production of the show at the exact same table where she crafted the original pitch for the show just two years prior.
Herron goes on to explain that the show had finished filming prior and that she had just finished post-production elements. She notes that this was the original deadline for the show and that this work takes a long time.
Loki has been a huge hit so far with viewers, smashing previous records of 5-day viewership.
The Marvel show amassed an astounding 2.5 million US household views in those five days, beating The Mandalorian, WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Solider.
In fact, the series was viewed by 890k households on the first day on the platform alone.
Comparing this with the likes of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier which gained 759k viewers and WandaVision which gained 755k, it can be confidently said that Herron’s creation is a smashing success.
Loki will only have 6 episodes, with no indication of whether a season 2 will follow or even if a season 2 can follow.
