Loki Season 2 Release Date Status, Cast, Plot And Everything You Need To Know

When Might We Expect To See The Second Season Of Loki On Disney+?

Have no fear!

During the first season’s end credits in July of 2021, it was revealed that Loki would return for the second season. There has been no announcement of a premiere date for the MCU series as of August 2022. Hiddleston responded to the news of the confirmation by telling Marvel.com: “I still can’t believe we get a second chance after the success of season one. The potential outcomes have me giddy with anticipation. Presently, we are engaged in conversation. Talks that go on and on and on in-depth. I’m itching to get going.”

A second season “would not be possible without the audience,” he continued. “Surprises in the first season would be great. Additionally, I anticipate even more in the upcoming season two.” However, it’s probably safe to say that even Loki himself would have a hard time making Season 2 even stranger than Season 1.

Michael Waldron, the writer and producer of Loki, said (via Polygon), “We had an alligator drinking champagne out of a kiddie pool.” “That was the pinnacle of weirdness, the highest point imaginable! I see a lot of potential in that area “… I mean, he makes some valid points.

He continued, “We’re always wanting to outdo ourselves, but hopefully it’s always motivated by character.” “Also, no notion is too weird, as I was reminded once again by [Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness]. You could have Stephen Strange take over his own body in a script, and if it’s good enough, you could even film it. In a positive way, that inspires me to take risks.”

Season two is “underway” and “being developed as we speak,” Kevin Feige of Marvel Studios told Collider in August 2021, which could mean anything from “the story is now being written” to “Tom Hiddleston is done his scenes already.” Tom was spotted in July 2022 wearing the character’s trademark inky black haircut on site, suggesting filming has begun, though when it will wrap up is anyone’s guess.

As things stand, the earliest we can hope for is sometime in May or June of 2023, making that the middle of spring. Maybe you could have a word with someone at the TVA and they could speed things up for us.

Loki Season 2 Cast

A lot of information about Loki season 2 has been kept under wraps, as is common for Marvel shows. Therefore, there is currently no official news on who might be joining the upcoming time-hopping excursions. Tom Hiddleston has to be on board because what is Loki without Loki? Having Season 2 take place in London is convenient for the show’s main character. It was simply a scheduling coincidence, I believe, but I couldn’t be more excited about it,” Hiddleston stated on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

In addition, the actor stated that the next season will feature an abundance of Casey, Lady Loki, and alligators imbibing wine from a kiddie pool. Cordero confirmed (through CBR) that more Casey will be coming. Since I don’t know anything, I can’t even [tease]. There are a ridiculous number of logins and passcodes I need to enter before I can view the sites I’m on, plus the way everything works, things are always changing in an awesome way.

I’m looking forward to contributing further; how exactly, I can’t say at this time. So, sure, brace yourselves; I think you’ll enjoy it. No, it’ll be fantastic; don’t worry. Ravonna Renslayer, played by Gugu Mbatha-Raw, will also be back, however, the actress told Digital Spy in December 2021 that she had no idea what was in store for her character. ‘I really don’t know where it’s heading,’ she admitted. For a game that manipulates time like Renslayer, there seem to be endless possibilities. So, um, I’m not sure.

For the most part, I haven’t… I’m trying to keep an open mind about it. Over the past five months, I’ve been putting in a lot of time and effort on something else. Therefore, I am unsure. To some extent, I’m ready for the next act. What happens next, time will tell. The door is always open to me (a movie). To be honest, I have no idea where this is headed. In light of the events of the first season, we may also assume the following actors will return for Loki Season 2:

  • Wunmi Mosaku as Hunter B-15
  • Tara Strong as the voice of Miss Minutes
  • Owen Wilson as Mobius M Mobius
  • Sophia Di Martino as Sylvie

Kid Loki may also return at some point, so don’t be shocked to see Jack Veal in the role again. This might be in Loki Season 2 or another Young Avengers effort. We’re crossing our fingers that, much like in the books, Marvel’s legacy team will eventually form, and that Kid Loki will be a part of it.

We’d want to see more than just that Loki come back, though. In a brief but famous portrayal of Classic Loki in a Golden Age comic book style, Richard E. Grant won over a legion of followers. Grant told Entertainment Tonight that his character could come back one day, despite the fact that this variant sacrificed himself to help Sylvie and Loki escape The Void.

He concluded that “anything” may happen. Grant admitted that he “wouldn’t say no” to returning, despite his uncertainty as to how this would be possible after “going out with such a bang.” To paraphrase, “I think that because his sacrifice is so enormous and it’s going out with such a bang, how do you top that if he had to come back? Sorry, I have no idea. That’s actually outside my sphere of expertise. But if you asked me, I wouldn’t say no. In other words… Rafael Casal, star of Blindspotting, has also been spotted on location, though his role is being kept under wraps until Marvel officially confirms his casting.

What About The Talent Behind The Camera?

Director Kate Herron recently told Collider that she was still extremely focused on season one when asked if she was keen to return for a second season. I’ve been immersed in this story for two years, and I can’t help but think about it constantly. As far as my mind is concerned, there is nothing else going on besides this show, into which I poured my heart and soul.

Kate, along with Michael Waldron, was instrumental in creating this show, making her confirmed departure before season two all the more of a shock. The Hollywood Reporter quotes her as saying, “I always wanted merely to do these six [episodes].” According to Herron, “we were treating it like a movie and running it like a movie.” This wasn’t something we were doing in the showrunner system. I put my whole heart and soul into directing these six episodes, and it was a lot of work. Everything I cherished about the Marvel universe went into it. Her final words were, “I just feel like my part is done, but I’m really excited to see where it’s going to go next.”

Obviously, too.

There will be more than one Jonathan Majors playing the role of He Who Remains in Lovecraft Country. One may count on Jonathan to reprise his role as the main antagonist(s) indefinitely throughout Season 2.

Loki Season 2 Plot

The first season concluded with the expected cataclysmic event that initiates parallel universes. Many have speculated that it was this scene—and Wanda’s part in the film—that precisely set the stage for the mayhem of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. A natural connection between the two may have been made given that the Scarlet Witch is a Nexus Being.

Later, in December 2021’s Spider-Man: No Way Home, heroes, and villains, as well as various permutations of characters, are drawn through to the primary reality by Doctor Strange after a spell goes awry, illustrating the multiverse and its impact. Now they were coexisting in the same historical era.

But ever since Doctor Strange hit theatres, such notions have been stamped out just as effectively as America was by Wanda. Actually, the events of Loki were cut from the end credits. Michael Waldron, the writer for both Dr. Strange and Loki, recently spoke with Deadline to discuss why he decided to keep the two characters apart. Waldron stated, in reference to Kang’s absence from Doctor Strange:

Wanda felt like the largest, baddest bullet we could have.

The screenwriter recalls discussing making Wanda the film’s nemesis with Sam Raimi, saying, “We can’t allow another movie to have that pleasure.” He continued, saying, “If you introduced Kang… you would have risked the movie getting overstuffed.” It’s fair that you’d like to allow Wanda some space to do her thing, but what does that mean for Kang and his involvement in several universes?

The scriptwriter said during season two planning about Kang and his character’s involvement in the plot, “In developing the program in the first place, the only way it’s worth doing to me is that we can find a fresh tale to tell with this guy. It felt like we were breaking new emotional territory with Loki. The second season can’t be accessed any other way. We did, in fact, discover that. It’s a fantastic continuation of the plot, and it diverges nicely from season one.

The fallout from Sylvie’s betrayal is still something with which Loki must deal. Now that Kang (He Who Remains) is dead, an unlimited number of his alternate realities will arise and assume power. Indeed, we have witnessed this firsthand in “our” Time Variance Authority with the arrival of Kang’s monument.

A look at what season 2 of Loki and the future of the MCU means for the show

Furthermore, there is Mobius to consider. Since he has forgotten who Loki is, it seems that “our” Loki has been obliterated from this universe or replaced by a different one. How will our Loki spend his time now that he’s by himself? Now that he’s turned over a fresh leaf, the God of Mischief doesn’t have a lot going for him.

While keeping many of his cards close to his chest, Hiddleston provided some meaty backstory for season two during his September panel at the MCM London Comic-Con. Loki returns to TVA at the end of the sixth episode of the first season. “OK so look, we can’t reveal anything,” Hiddleston stated. “He seems traumatized and upset as he tries to explain what happened to Mobius [Owen Wilson], but Mobius doesn’t seem to remember him. He then looks over at the statue depicting the Timekeepers, only to realize that it actually depicts someone else. And I suppose that’s where we’ll begin.

While it’s unclear whether or not director Kate Herron will return for season two (her replacement will have big shoes to fill), Herron has some suggestions for the show’s future from her time on set, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter. Reality and everything as we knew it have undergone radical transformations in the previous few minutes, but in my head, the TVA exists outside of space and time. How can we know that the TVA continues to exist in this form, given the branching nature of the multiverse?

I guess there’s a significant question that will be answered as the show progresses, but we don’t know. However, in my imagination, Sylvie intends to send Loki back to the TVA, but because of the way time and branches are crossing one other outside the window, Loki has been unwittingly sent back to a totally different place.

Because of what He Who Remains stated, reality has changed, and he is now in a parallel TVA.

That’s such a fantastic idea; it has the potential to keep the program continuing for as long as Doctor Who (or Sliders, at the very least). One can only hope that Herron has left thorough notes for her successor.

Also, it’s not at all likely that we’ve seen the last of Sylvie. When we left the Goddess of Mischief in Kang’s Citadel, she was suffering the consequences of her actions. But now that Sylvie has a TemPad, she will likely reappear in the near future. When it comes down to it, though, who knows if she’ll be friend or foe? Or maybe a romantic partner. What an emotional wallop that kiss was before the betrayal.

After the shocking revelation in episode three, maybe, just maybe, we’ll get to witness “our” Loki in a loving relationship with another man. Season 2 of Loki may be an excellent approach to confront the character’s physical queerness, despite the fact that bisexual persons don’t need to display same-sex inclinations in order to be validated. Marvel has historically avoided anything like this.

For better or worse, Loki has irrevocably altered a major aspect of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. When asked by Collider, Herron responded, “Basically I don’t know plans for the future with Loki – I’m so concentrated on this story.” But I will admit that some of my thoughts went something like this: if it’s canon and recognized, then yeah, I hope there’s certainly more room to develop that side of his character. As for new narratives, I certainly hope this one has sparked some interest.

Loki Season 2 Trailer: When Can We See New Footage?

We haven’t heard anything about when we’ll get a trailer, but we suspect it will be some time. Disney’s D23 expo, when a number of announcements about the future of the Marvel franchise are made, is probably the earliest we can hope for new footage. This is going to be in Anaheim, California, on the 9th, 10th, and 11th of September, 2022.

A full trailer is also unlikely to be released before the show’s premiere, which is around a month away. Time will pass quickly if you keep your ear to the ground; after all, you’ve seen the performance.

Loki is streaming exclusively on Disney+.
