In this article, we will guide everything you need to know about Loki Season 2 Release Date, Cast, Plot, and Everything You Need to Know!
Loki Season 2: Latest News
Loki Season 2 was released on October 5, 2023, with Tom Hiddleston reprising his role as Loki. The first big reveal for Loki Season 2 came with the release of the initial trailer. Additionally, there was a post-credits scene in the movie “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania” which marked the MCU’s first Phase 5 film.
In this scene, Loki and Owen Wilson’s Mobius M. Mobius were seen meeting Majors Victor Timely in the early 20th Century. This confirmed that Loki Season 2 would continue to explore time travel, with the TVA duo investigating Kang the Conqueror and his various incarnations throughout history.
When and Where Is ‘Loki’ Season 2 Coming Out?
Loki Season 2 has been officially announced to premiere on Disney+ on October 5 at 6 PM Pacific Time. The head writer of the first season, Michael Waldron, signed a contract with Disney in January 2021, which included his involvement in the second season of Loki. The announcement for Season 2 came in a mid-credits scene in the finale of the first season, released in July 2021.
Initially, Loki Season 2 was planned to debut in the summer of 2023, as stated by Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios, during San Diego Comic-Con 2022, but the release date has changed.
This new season will be part of the MCU’s Phase Five, which began on February 17, 2023, with the release of “Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.” While you wait for Season 2, you can catch up on the first season of Loki, which is available on Disney+.
Loki Season 2 Plot
As the first season of Loki concluded, it provided answers to some questions while also opening up new storylines and character arcs for the main characters.
One significant development was the cliffhanger where our Loki (Tom Hiddleston) arrived at what appeared to be the TVA, the organization we had been following throughout the season. However, he soon realized that this TVA is now being led by a variant of Kang who appears to be more menacing. This twist also means that the versions of Hunter B-15 (Wunmi Mosaku) and Agent Mobius (Owen Wilson) he encounters do not recognize him, even though they look exactly like the ones he knows.
As a quick recap, He Who Remains (Jonathan Majors), a benevolent Kang variant introduced in the finale, ended the Multiversal Wars by creating the Sacred Timeline, the foundation of the MCU. When Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino) killed this version of Kang due to her disbelief in his story, the multiverse began to unravel, leading to events in “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” “Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness,” and the upcoming “Deadpool 3.”
Currently, Sylvie is missing, Loki is trapped in a potentially dangerous TVA, and the original TVA’s mission has crumbled. There is speculation that Loki might have persuaded Mobius to help him hunt down variant Kangs who could hold the key to the ongoing multiverse crisis, but nothing is certain.
Another unresolved subplot from season 1 involves Ravonna Renslayer (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), who left through a Timedoor after a confrontation with Mobius. She had expressed her intention to search for genuine free will after learning the truth about the TVA but still feels responsible for protecting the Sacred Timeline. It’s likely she will play a significant role in the unfolding events.
Tom Hiddleston has been tight-lipped about season 2 but teased that Loki will be more “unstable” and “passionate” in the future, especially as he reconnects with Sylvie, who has taken a job at McDonald’s, possibly as a humorous product placement.
The cast of ‘Loki’ Season 2
In Loki Season 2, viewers can expect to see several familiar faces returning from the first season, as well as some new additions to the MCU:
Returning characters include:
- Tom Hiddleston as Loki
- Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Ravonna Renslayer
- Tara Strong as Miss Minutes
- Owen Wilson as Mobius M. Mobius
- Sophia Di Martino as Sylvie

- Jonathan Majors could reprise his role as Kang the Conqueror, a variant of He Who Remains.
New characters joining the MCU through Loki Season 2 include:
- Rafael Casal, in an “important role” announced in July.
- Ke Huy Quan, known for “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” will play a Time Variance Authority archivist, as seen in the trailers, and his casting was confirmed in September.
- Kate Dickie, known for “Game of Thrones,” will also appear in an unspecified role in Season 2, with some speculation that she could be a villain.
Additionally, it’s possible that other Marvel characters could make appearances in the series, or their Variants might be introduced, further contributing to the development of the Marvel Multiverse, which is a central theme in Loki Season 2.
