Things are looking good for Marvel’s upcoming Loki TV series: according to THR, the show has landed a showrunner. Rick And Morty‘s Michael Waldron has officially signed up to helm the series.

As well as serving as showrunner, Waldron is also set to write the pilot, act as show creator and executive produce the series.

No casting news has been confirmed but actor Tom Hiddleston is expected to reprise his iconic role as Loki for the series (despite having been killed off at the start of Avengers: Infinity War). The series will air on Disney’s upcoming streaming service Disney+.

The Loki series isn’t the only Marvel TV project currently in the works for Disney+: the studio is also working on The Vision And Scarlet Witch, which will revolve around, um, the Vision and also Scarlet Witch (and will be helmed by Captain Marvel writer Jac Schaeffer), as well as a a series focusing on a team-up between Falcon and the Winter Soldier (with Empire‘s Malcolm Spellman set to write). Paul Bettany, Elisabeth Olsen, Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan are expected to reprise their roles.
