Loki Season 2: the God of Mischief Is Coming Back for More Time-bending Adventures!
Loki is coming back on our screens!
The Marvel show seems to be the only live-action series that has gotten a second season up to this point, but definite facts are hard to come by. Everything we know with certainty would be that Loki will return, along with the rest of the cast.
We all have finally gotten the update on Loki season 2 and are really happy as we’ve been waiting for over a year after the series debuted on Disney+.
The alternative form of Loki is transported to the unknown Time Variance Authority (TVA), a regulatory institution that operates outside of time and space and oversees the chronology, following stealing the Tesseract just after the events of Avengers: Endgame.
They offer Loki the choice of having his face obliterated from existence owing to his status as a “time variation,” or helping to restore the timeline and avert a larger threat. Loki becomes entrapped inside his own time-traveling crime thriller.
So, let’s see how much we know about the upcoming season.
Loki Season 2: When Is the Show Releasing?
Although season two is undoubtedly on the way, no definite release date for Loki has been announced as of yet.
The second series was supposed to begin filming in January 2022, according to industry publication Production Weekly, and there haven’t been any confirmations about this on media platforms or from Marvel themselves.
Season 2 is already “underway” and “being created it as we speak,” according to Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige, who informed Collider in August 2021 – and it could imply anything at all from “the story is now being written” to “Tom Hiddleston is finishing up his scenes already.” Nevertheless, we do understand that the second part is ready to begin filming, according to a Deadline interview.

To put things in perspective, season 1 premiered in June 2021, so if you throw in factors like significant post-production, special effects, and also, the shooting and script rewrites, the show will not debut for season 2 until the start of Spring 2023. So we Loki fans have to wait a bit longer for the God to return.
Loki Season 2: What’s the Storyline of the Show?
The storyline of Loki season 2 is now being kept a secret. That’s all fine because we can imagine it a little.
Sylvie simply immediately started a multiversal battle. We’re going to see an unlimited number of Kangs smash apart the MCU, according to Kang’s episode-long exposition of his intentions. This tale was partially resolved in Spider-Man: No Way Home as well as Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, both of which featured multiversal adventures or what you call ‘mishaps’.
The sequel to Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, which itself is confirmed to feature Kang and a multiverse-related narrative, will most likely shoulder the burden of Loki’s wrath.
Sylvie sends the God of Mischief towards the TVA headquarters in another timeframe, one in which Kang has indeed vanquished, at the end of Loki season 1. So it’s highly possible that we’ll be seeing Loki shortly after the happenings in the show, as the newly nice-guy struggles to keep up the TVA on anything that occurred when Sylvie killed Kang.
As for the one-horned, whenever we meet up again, she’ll have to explain herself. Perhaps, just maybe, this really is the turning point in her life that taught her to trust, paving the way for the ultimate Sylvie-Loki dynamic duo of our fantasies. And we’ll see them attempt to repair the devastation they’ve caused, encountering superheroes including Doctor Strange anywhere along the road.
Season two will provide Loki with a slew of new difficulties and, hopefully, a lot lesser exposition. First and foremost, the God of Mischief will have to discover what is happening with this updated TVA version. Assuming Kang has always dominated this reality or changed history in some way, how will he persuade Mobius to join him?
And it isn’t just Kang he has to be concerned about. They Who Remain has evolved from He Who Remains, implying that there are an endless number of time-traveling villains to struggle with. The very worst part is that, as a result of that heinous betrayal, Loki no longer has Sylvie on his side. In a way, things are looking bad for Loki in season 2.
Who Will Be Seen Again in the Series?
The return of Tom Hiddleston, Owen Wilson, plus Gugu Mbatha-Raw has been confirmed. Mbatha-Raw recently stated that she’ll be reprising her role as Ravonna Lexus Renslayer during an interview on GMA, and Hiddleston also told Jimmy Kimmel that the entire ensemble is coming, so prepare to see more familiar characters.
Considering the way season one concluded, we may expect Wunmi Mosaku to reprise her part as Hunter B-15, Tara Strong to voice Miss Minutes’ voice, Owen Wilson to take his place as Mobius M Mobius, and Sophia Di Martino to reprise her role as Sylvie in Loki season 2.
Also, don’t be shocked if Jack Veal returns as Kid Loki at some time, whether in a Loki season 2 or as part of a Young Avengers venture. With several people lined up, Marvel’s legacy team would only be a question of time, and we’re hopeful Kid Loki will become a member of it, much like in the comics.

Kate Herron, the showrunner, confirmed her leave from the series, indicating that she had no plans to return for a season 2. Herron told Deadline, “I’m extremely excited to see it as a viewer next season.” “I’m really pleased with what we accomplished here, and I gave it my best.”
As directors, Justin Benson, as well as Aaron Moorhead, have joined the team. Both will “co-direct a bulk of the episodes for the second season,” as per Deadline. The team recently helmed two episodes of the MCU’s Moon Knight, wherein Oscar Isaac plays a superhero with a dissociative identity disorder. Michael Waldron and Eric Martin, who wrote the first season, are set to return, however, Martin will take over as lead writer from Waldron.
Unfortunately, we don’t have any information regarding the trailer, so for now let’s enjoy the trailer of Loki season 1.
