Disney Plus: Loki Season 2 premiere date announced
Since the beginning of Phase Four of the MCU, we’ve gotten a lot of television series added to the ever-expanding universe from Loki to Moon Knight, Ms. Marvel, and Hawkeye. But up until now, all of the series we’ve seen have only been one season long.
That is about to change. The second season for Loki, which was announced at the end of the first season for the show, finally has a release date.
Loki Season 2 will premiere in 2023
The second season of Loki will premiere later this year, on October 6. Loki was something of a departure from the usual formula that most of the Marvel series on Disney+ followed, since they started premiering in 2021.
While most seasons of Marvel television on Disney+ told a contained story, almost as if they were being developed as extra-long movies with a distinct beginning, middle, and end, Loki intentionally didn’t wrap up the storyline by the end of the last episode. It left audiences with a cliffhanger, waiting for a season two that was promised in the mid-credits of the final episode.
The second season of Loki was filmed last year and wrapped up principal production in October of 2022. For those who don’t want to wait until October to get their next glimpse of Loki, some footage from the upcoming season has actually already been released.
For those who stayed to watch the credits of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania earlier this year, the post credits scene was a little bit of footage taken from the upcoming season of Loki. In the footage, Loki and Mobius discover Kang, going by the alias Victor Timely in a Victorian Era presentation.
Loki seems terrified to see Kang in the footage, which makes sense given his encounter with He Who Remains at the end of Loki season one.
What happened in the first season of Loki?
For those who need a refresher of Loki season one, the season ends with Loki discovering He Who Remains, a multiverse variant of Kang who is behind the power of the Time Variance Authority. When things go wrong in the Citadel at the end of Time, Loki is thrown back to discover that the present seems to have changed as the result of his and Sylvie’s actions.
Given what we know of Loki, and what we’ve learned about how the MCU plans to use the character of Kang, it looks like season 2 will feature Loki and Mobius tracking down Kang variants throughout the newly created multiverse, as well as some new characters. We’ll find out how much of this is true when the series begins on October 6.
