The first season of Loki on Disney+ brought back Tom Hiddleston as the seemingly unkillable Asgardian God of Mischief. And it was a huge success. It introduced MCU fans to the Time Variance Authority, or TVA, who watch over the timeline of the known universe. Loki also formally introduced the concept of the Marvel Multiverse. Something that will play a big part in the MCU going forward. The series also gave Loki a perfect foil in the form of his variant Sylvie. Perhaps most importantly, So far, it’s the only MCU series to get a second season. But what wild adventures through the spacetime continuum will Loki’s second round include?
Here’s everything we know about the continuing misadventures of Loki Laufeyson.
The first season of Loki ended with Sylvie killing He Who Remains (Jonathan Majors), thereby erupting the Sacred Timeline and unleashing the Multiverse in full. When Loki returned to the TVA, it was altered in the timeline, and no one remembered him. Not to mention, statues of He Who Remains (or one of his variants more likely) stood tall in the TVA’s halls.
We imagine that season two will deal with the fallout of not just the events of the first season, but the events of Spider-Man: No Way Home and Doctor Strange In the Multiverse of Madness. As Kevin Feige confirmed at SDCC, the MCU is now in the midst of the Multiverse Saga, and we expect Loki season two to factor heavily into its development.
We can see our first look at footage from Loki season two in this Disney+ teaser.
Behind the Scenes
Season one writers Michael Waldron and Eric Martin are coming back as well, with Martin now the head writer instead of Waldron, and Waldron serving as executive producer. One of the creatives from season one not returning is showrunner Kate Herron, according to a report from Deadline. Co-directing several episodes in season two, also according to Deadline, are Moon Knight’s Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead. Natalie Holt is also back as the series composer.
Tom Hiddleston returns of course as the titular Loki. Also returning is Owen Wilson as Mobius, Sophia DiMartino as Sylvie, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Ravonna Renslayer. Eugene Cordero as ever-present TVA employee Casey (he’ll play a series regular in season two), and Tara Strong as the voice of Miss Minutes will also come back. No word yet on Jonathan Majors as one of the Kang variants, although the giant statue of him at the end of season one suggests we will see him. However, we will see him first in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
We learned at D23 Expo that Ke Huy Quan (Everything Everywhere All at Once is in season two of Loki, but we don’t know details about his role yet. Additionally, Deadline reports that Game of Thrones‘ Kate Dickie will likely play the villain in Loki‘s second season.
