Loki season 2 release date, cast, plot, trailer, and news

We have assembled everything on the Loki season 2 release date to see when the Marvel series starring Tom Hiddleston might be back on Disney Plus.

Loki season 2 release date

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

The TV series also introduces Avengers 5‘s big bad: Kang the Conqueror. That’s right comic readers; the time-travelling despot has made his way into the MCU. Jonathan Majors makes his Marvel debut in the Loki ending as ‘He Who Remains’ – a variant of Kang the Conqueror who has shielded the MCU timeline from a multiversal war between an infinite number of Kangs. Oh, dear. Not only that but when Loki returns to the TVA to warn Mobius (Owen Wilson), he discovers that his former friend no longer remembers who he is.

To make things worse, there’s a massive statue of Kang towering over the TVA instead of the Time Keepers – meaning the Marvel villain has already meddled with the timeline. That’s not good. So with all this in mind, what can we expect from the Loki season 2 release date?

Loki Season 2 release date speculation

Loki season 2 will be released on Friday, October 6 2023. The show will be released weekly and can be watched exclusively on Disney Plus.

The vast majority of the Loki cast is set to return for the second season. That includes Tom Hiddleston as the titular God of Mischief, Sophia Di Martino as his female counterpart, and Owen Wilson as the befuddled Mobius M. Mobius.

We also know a number of our favourite TVA employees are set to return including Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Ravonna Renslayer and Wunmi Mosaku as Hunter B-15. The villain of the show appears to be none other than Victor Timely, a Kang the Conqueror variant who’ll once again be played by Jonathan Majors. He showed up in the Ant-Man 3 post-credit scene.

You’ll also be able to see Oscar winner Ke Huy Quan in Loki season 2. The Everything Everywhere All at Once star is set to become an MCU character, as a TVA archivist.

Who’s in the Loki season 2 cast?

  • 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 appears as a Time Variance Authority archivist
  • Rafael Casal
  • Kate Dickie

Hopefully, head writer Michael Waldron has plenty of other surprises up his sleeves, including more Loki and Sylvie variants. Maybe they can persuade Matt Damon to step back into the Loki costume again after his brief cameos in the Thor movies, Thor: Ragnarok and Love and Thunder.

Although hopefully, the show can find a way to bring back Boastful Loki (DeObia Oparei), Kid Loki (Jack Veal), Alligator Loki, and Classic Loki (Richard E. Grant) because they were glorious.

Loki season 2 plot speculation

As of April 2023 the Loki season 2 plot has not been confirmed. This is a Marvel series where anything is possible, thanks to all the time travel and multiverse shenanigans.

That said, the Ant-Man 3 ending did give us some clues. It seems like Loki season 2 will deal with Loki tracking down Victor Timely with the help of Mobius.

Hopefully, the bulk of the story will be about Loki trying to take down Kang’s new version of the TVA, perhaps in a similar way to how Sylvie targeted the organization back in season 1.

Glorious purpose! Best action movies

When speaking to Polygon about the future of the sci-fi series, writer Michael Waldron explained: “I think that you’re gonna see a Loki that looks at himself in a different way certainly that at the top of this.” It looks like Loki will finally get that heroic streak that the main version of the character had before Thanos snapped his neck.

Waldron also teased more from Sylvie’s backstory, saying I guess we’ll see. We certainly have our own rich backstory for her, stuff that didn’t get to make it into the show. Elissa Karasik, our episode 2 writer, wrote a lot of amazing backstories for Sylvie and everything.

So those ideas exist out there. Although when he was pressed about seeing Sylvie’s version of Thor, the writer cryptically said: “Tune in.”

Is there a Loki Season 2 trailer?

Unfortunately, Loki season 2 doesn’t have a full trailer yet. That said, we did get a glimpse of the God of Mischief in the Disney Plus 2023 trailer.

Beyond that, you can watch Marvel Assembled for some behind-the-scenes titbits. But since Loki ended in 2021, fans have had a much deeper look at the multiverse thanks to Spider-Man: No Way Home.

The sequel sees Tom Holland’s Wallcrawler face off with a horde of Spider-Man villains from different universes after he goes to Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) for help after his identity is outed by Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal).

The second post-credits scene also teased more interdimensional shenanigans with the first trailer for Doctor Strange 2, which shows the titular sorcerer faced with an evil version of himself. In fact, he looks awfully similar to Strange Supreme from Disney Plus’s animated series What If…?.

Let’s not forget that The Hollywood Reporter previously claimed that Loki would show up for a cameo in the Benedict Cumberbatch-led sequel, although Marvel Studios never actually confirmed the news.

All this is to say that Loki has paved the way for the Marvel Cinematic Multiverse since it prepared audiences by introducing variants and the idea that there are alternative versions of the same characters that populate the MCU. So hopefully, when Marvel Studios releases the Loki Season 2 trailer, it’ll tease some multiversal madness of its own.
