The highly anticipated second season of the Marvel series Loki is set to arrive on Disney+ this summer, and fans are eagerly awaiting the return of Tom Hiddleston as the God of Mischief. While details about the upcoming season are still scarce, here’s what we know so far.
The first season of Loki saw the God of Mischief team up with the Time Variance Authority (TVA) to help them fix the timeline after his escape from the Avengers’ custody. The season ended with Loki being sent to a new timeline, and it’s unclear what will happen to him in the second season.
The cast of the second season includes Tom Hiddleston, Owen Wilson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Sophia Di Martino, Wunmi Mosaku, and Richard E. Grant. It’s unclear what roles they will be playing, but it’s likely that they will be involved in Loki’s mission to fix the timeline.
The show’s creator, Michael Waldron, has said that the second season will explore the idea of “what if” scenarios, and that it will be “a lot bigger and more ambitious” than the first season. He also teased that the show will explore the idea of “alternate realities” and “alternate timelines”.
The show will also feature some new characters, including the villainous King Loki, who is described as “a version of Loki from a different timeline”. It’s unclear how he will fit into the story, but it’s likely that he will be a major antagonist for the God of Mischief.
The second season of Loki is set to arrive on Disney+ this summer, and fans are eagerly awaiting the return of Tom Hiddleston as the God of Mischief. While details about the upcoming season are still scarce, it’s clear that it will be bigger and more ambitious than the first season, and that it will explore the idea of alternate realities and timelines. With an all-star cast and an intriguing premise, the second season of Loki is sure to be a hit.
With Marvel Studios’ Loki set to return for its second season on Disney+ sometime in 2021, fans of the God of Mischief are eager to see what storyline will unfold in Loki’s future. As Marvel Studios continues to remain tight-lipped about the show’s development, fans have been piecing together what is known of Season 2 so far.
The finale of Loki’s first season left viewers with some big questions, as the show found our lead character cast out of the Time Variance Authority (TVA) and sent on his way by a future version of Mobius M. Mobius (Owen Wilson). We know that Loki, as he originally was, is sent by Mobius on his own journey with the Tesseract in order to repair the shattered timeline. He is tasked with making key decisions which can establish a timeline in his own favor.
Marvel Cinematic Universe fans will recall that the Tesseract is the space stone, one of the six Infinity Stones, and was last seen in Avengers: Endgame. The Time Variance Authority is a bureaucratic organization operating outside of time and space, tasked with protecting the timeline in which the story is set. This is likely where Loki’s path will cross with the TVA when Loki returns.
Another big question that still remains is what form will Loki take in Season 2. He escapes the clutches of the TVA in his original human form as Loki Laufeyson, the adopted brother of Thor. However, when we last see him in Endgame, Loki has been killed. Does this mean he will be in the form of Loki from the timeline he created in the events of avengers: Endgame, or will he be a version of the original Loki from before his death?
While details on the plot of Loki Season 2 remain a mystery, we do know that writer Michael Waldron will return as showrunner. Waldron, who has worked extensively on Rick and Morty, will lead the writing team of Jane Espenson, Shoshannah Stern, and Joshua Fine. A number of recurring actors have also been confirmed for Loki Season 2, including Owen Wilson, Sophia Di Martino, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Wunmi Mosaku, and Richard E. Grant.
With Marvel Studios’ track record of keeping plots more or less under wraps, fans will just have to wait and see how Loki’s story plays out. We do know, however, that Loki Season 2 will be an exciting installment in Marvel’s multi-verse. Here’s hoping we get some answers come 2021!
