Loki season 2 cast, plot, trailers, reviews, and more news

The Loki season 2 release date has come and gone, and we're loving the Marvel series starring Tom Hiddleston's God of Mischief. Here's the cast, plot, and more.

Loki season 2 release date: Variants of Loki run around his head.

When was the Loki season 2 release date? When Loki arrived in 2021, Marvel fans had no idea he would change the face of the multiverse forever. The Trickster God’s adventures with the Time Variance Authority give him a new (glorious) purpose in life, and he even fell in love with a variant of himself, Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino).

The Marvel Cinematic Universe‘s best TV series also introduced Avengers 5’s big bad: Kang the Conqueror. He made ripples as ‘He Who Remains’, a variant who shielded the MCU timeline from a multiversal war between an infinite number of Kangs (more on that in our Loki ending explained).

To make things worse, there’s a massive statue of Kang towering over the TVA instead of the Time Keepers in season 2 episode 1, meaning the Marvel series‘ timeline had already seen some changes. That’s not good. So with all this in mind, what did the Loki season 2 release date bring, and who’s in the cast?

Who’s in the Loki season 2 cast?

The vast majority of the Loki cast returned for season 2, including Tom Hiddleston as the God of Mischief, Sophia Di Martino as Sylvie, and Owen Wilson as the befuddled Mobius M. Mobius.

A number of our favorite TVA employees also return, including Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Ravonna Renslayer and Wunmi Mosaku as Hunter B-15.

The overarching villain of the season is none other than Victor Timely, a Kang the Conqueror variant. He showed up in the Ant-Man 3 post-credit scene.

You’ll also see Oscar-winner Ke Huy Quan in Loki season 2. The Everything Everywhere All at Once star joined the Marvel characters as a TVA archivist nicknamed O.B.

Here is the Loki season 2 cast list:

  • Tom Hiddleston as Loki
  • Owen Wilson as Mobius M. Mobius
  • Sophia Di Martino as Sylvie
  • Jonathan Majors as Victor Timely
  • Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Ravonna Renslayer
  • Wunmi Mosaku as Hunter B-15
  • Eugene Cordero as Casey/Hunter K-5E
  • Tara Strong as Miss Minutes
  • Ke Huy Quan as a Time Variance Authority archivist
  • Neil Ellice as Hunter D-90: A TVA Hunter
  • Rafael Casal as Brad Wolfe
  • Kate Dickie as General Dox
  • Liz Carr as Judge Gamble

Loki Season 2 release date and reviews

Loki season 2 was released on Thursday, October 5, 2023, and met with mostly positive reviews.

Season 2 was under a lot of pressure, but as noted in our Loki season 2 review, it can bear it. The Digital Fix’s Tom Percival wrote that “it replicates the off-beat energy and sizzling character dynamics of the first season while adding new layers of intrigue to the ongoing narrative.”

The new season, at the time of writing, sits in the 80s on Rotten Tomatoes critics meter, with a consensus that reads, “Loki’s dizzying, dazzling second season may rely on sleight of hand to distract from its slightly less satisfying storyline, but the end result still contains enough of that old Marvel magic to entertain.”

What is Loki season 2 about?

In Loki season 2, Sylvie tries to experience life truly for the first time while Loki and Mobius deal with the aftermath of He Who Remains’ death.

Loki finds himself time slipping and dealing with the dangers of an overloaded Temporal Loom in season 2, and from there on out we’ve got the chaos of branching timelines and the threat of Kangs to worry about.

Executive producer Kevin R. Wright also discussed the plot in a behind-the-scenes featurette ahead of the release. Wright explained that in season 2, we see Loki undergo some emotional reflection as he leans into being a hero instead of a villain.

“We introduce this whole new corner to the MCU and these new characters. Rest assured, our Loki will be with our Mobius, and they will be dealing with the consequences of the first season,” Wright said.”Loki has always been a villain – what we want to explore is also Loki finding out what heroism really looks like.”
