Our favorite Marvel villain and shit starter is back everybody. Season 2 of Loki is set to premiere on October 6th, and picks up on the cliff-hanger ending that we all were left with at the end of Season 1, which spanned six episodes. Seeing as though we just got the very first footage of Season 2's opening scene recently at Destination D23, we figured now might be a good time to give you an update on everything we know about the new season from the trailer and release date, to what we can expect while watching, and of course answer the question: when is Loki season 2 coming out? It's been a long and anticipated road to this new season, and many of us have been on this Loki journey since 2011. If in the meantime you need to catch up on the MCU, you can do so using our regularly-updated Marvel movies guide, and you can check out some of the other Marvel villains we're fond of here.
When is 'Loki' Season 2 Coming Out? Everything We Know
We've got all the deets in time for the premiere on October 6th
Is there a Trailer for 'Loki' Season 2?
What is the background of Loki the character?
As we said, Loki has collectively been our favorite shit starter since his introduction by way of 2011's Thor. Portrayed by Tom Hiddleston, we were supposed to hate him, but we wound up doing the opposite, and now we have a full-blown series that has quickly become beloved in the heart of Marvel lovers (or even just Loki lovers for that matter). Make no mistake, this is a relationship that has gone on for over a decade, and it's not ending anytime soon as far as we're concerned.
When is 'Loki' Season 2 coming out?
You can expect for Loki Season 2 to arrive on the streaming device of your choice on October 6th, 2023 via Disney+, which continues as part of series creator and lead writer Michael Waldron's overall deal in the platform. Still no word yet at the time of this writing if we're getting a two episode season-premiere, but that confirmation should be coming rather soon seeing as though we are less than a month out.
Where does 'Loki' Season 2 currently fall in the MCU?
Ah! The Big Question! We are now technically in Phase 5 of the MCU with the release of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania which means two things—if you haven't already, now might be the time to watch the aforementioned, and... that Season 2 of Loki is going to officially fit into the Phase 5 arc. Don't worry, you've still got some time to catch up!
Where did Season 1 leave off?
Season 1 of Loki ended with the major cliffhanger of with Loki approaching the TVA organization heavily referenced throughout the season, and finding out that the org is being ran by a variant of Kang the Conqueror that is a stranger to everyone. This, of course, comes after the murder of He Who Remains (Jonathan Majors), the nice version of Kang by Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino), who has also gone missing, which in turn has shaken the MCU up big-time.
Who's in the 'Loki' Season 2 cast?
Of course, we've got Tom Hiddleston leading the pack as Loki, alongside Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Sophia Di Martino, Owen Wilson, Eugene Cordero, Wunmi Mosaku, and Tara Strong all returning from Season 1. There's also going to be the addition of Jonathan Majors to the cast, but it's still TBD how much screen time he's going to be getting exactly.
Who's writing 'Loki' Season 2?
Series creator Michael Waldron actually wasn't on lead writing duties for Season 2 as his hand's are currently tied up. Don't worry though, the show is in good hands with co-producer Eric Martin taking over the writing duty reigns. Writers Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead (Moon Knight) also served as writers for Season 2.
'Loki' Season 2 premieres on Disney+ on October 6th, 2023.
