Marvel Studios’ Loki, starring Tom Hiddleston as the titular God of Mischief, will return for a second season, and a new premiere date has been revealed.
According to a report from Star Wars news source The Bespin Bulletin about the forthcoming Disney+ series Ahsoka, we now have a new release window for Loki Season 2. According to the rumor mill, the premiere of Ahsoka on the streaming service would occur “much later in the Summer,
” following the premieres of two other upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe series: Secret Invasion (in May) and Loki Season 2 (in the fall). In June of 2021, Disney+ debuted the first episode of Loki, Season 1.
MCU fans still have a while to wait until Loki returns with new episodes on Disney+, but the show’s second season was recently teased in the post-credits scene of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. There,
Loki (Tom Hiddleston) and Mobius M. Mobius (Owen Wilson) travel back in time to the early 20th century to track down another Kang variant named Victor Timely. Even though Jonathan Majors’ Kang is said to have a significant role in the new episodes, it is currently unclear how this scene will fit into the season’s larger narrative.
Date Of Season 2 Of Loki’s Release
Nonetheless, the premiere date for Loki Season 2 has not been set in stone. A second season of the Marvel action-adventure series Loki is rumored to premiere around the middle of 2023.
The Loki television series is based on the same-named Marvel Comics series. The first season premiered on Disney+ Hotstar on June 9, 2021.
Michael Waldron directed the pilot episode, and Kevin Feign, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Stephen Broussard, Tom Hiddleston, Kate Herron, and Michael Waldron served as executive producers for the first season at Marvel Studios.
The co-writers of Season 2 and Season 1 (Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson) are credited with directing. The second season is also a Marvel Studios production, just like the first. The second season will feature the return of Tom Hiddleston, Tara Strong, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Sophia Di Martino, and Owen Wilson.
Loki’s season 2 Storyline
A catastrophic event that established alternate realities capped off Season 1. Many have speculated that it was this scene—and Wanda’s role in the film—that directly set the stage for the mayhem of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Because of the Scarlet Witch’s status as a Nexus Being, a connection between the two would have made a lot of sense.
Later, in December 2021’s Spider-Man: No Way Home, the multiverse and its effects were depicted with heroes, villains, and multiple variants of characters being pulled through to our universe by Doctor Strange after a spell went wrong. This meant that they were coexisting in the same historical era.
The recent release of Doctor Strange, however, has effectively put an end to those rumors, much like Wanda’s efforts to extinguish America Chavez. The events of Loki weren’t even important enough to warrant a post-credits scene.
In a recent interview with Deadline, Michael Waldron, the screenwriter for both “Dr. Strange” and “Loki,” discussed why he decided to keep the films apart. Waldron said, “To me, it felt like we had the biggest best bullet in Wanda,” when asked how he felt about Kang not being in Doctor Strange.
Working with Sam (Raimi), I suggested, “We can’t let another movie have that fun, we need to make the decision to make Wanda the antagonist in this film.”
Season 2 Of Loki’s Cast And Characters
In the past 12 months, Marvel has confirmed that almost all of the Season 1 cast will be returning. Tom Hiddleston plays Loki in the teaser, and Owen Wilson plays Mobius. Sophia di Martino plays Sylvie, and Eugenio Cordero plays Casey. Gugu MBatha Raw plays Ravonna Renslayer, and Wunmi Mosaku plays Hunter B-15.
One Ke Huy Quan (Everything Everywhere All at Once) is rumored to be joining them as a TVA worker under the codename Ouroboros (or “Bo” for short). Likewise, Kate Dickie (Game of Thrones) has reportedly joined the cast in a villainous role; if internet rumors are to be believed, she may be playing an older version of Sylvie. Last summer, Blindspotting’s Rafael Casal was spotted on set dressed as a TVA prisoner.
It seems likely that Jonathan Majors will return as yet another variant of He Who Remains, who is himself a variant of Kang the Conqueror, though we have no concrete evidence of this. In the second post-credit scene of “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania,” Majors reprises his role as Kang as Victor Timely, who gives a presentation to Loki and Mobius.
Is There A Trailer For Loki Season 2?
A second season of Loki was among the many shows discussed at Disney’s D23 Expo, held from September 9-11, 2022. Kevin Feige, Marvel’s head of television, revealed that after the shocking events of Season 1, Loki is still trying to make sense of everything.
In spite of the fact that Marvel has yet to release a teaser for Loki Season 2, the company debuted a first-look teaser trailer at D23. We haven’t seen a preview of the new season just yet, but hopefully, that won’t be for too long. Recently, Disney+ released a trailer for 2023, which included a few seconds of footage from the season.
Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Eugenio Cordero, Tara Strong, Owen Wilson, Sophia Di Martino, and Jonathan Majors all return from the first season, and Tom Hiddleston reprises his role as Loki from the film series.
