Loki, along with additional Marvel Studios original series on Dinsey +, has stepped further away from Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, challenging what is possible for Phase 4 and beyond. The first season left the series, if not the future of the Marvel Universe, open to a multiverse that will enable the expansion of new characters and new worlds. Second season of Loki was only vaguely teased in the post-credit sequence after the end of the season 1 finale, though there is still more that has yet to be revealed: a release date, cast and a plot.
Disney + Original was the third of Marvel Studios’ growing collection of TV shows designed for the streaming service. The TV series, starting with WandVision (2021), forms a bridge between the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the newly introduced television universe, and how the two will contribute equally to the overall span of Marvel’s live-action media. Through this, series such as Loki gets the opportunity to dive further into Marvel’s seemingly endless world and be able to do so through additional chapters of established, already existing shows. Though the details are elaborated Loki‘s second season is still kept hidden, there are a number of theories on the way that may lean into what has the potential to come next time.
Loki Given renewal for season 2
The series, which addressed directly after the events of Avengers: Endgame (2019), and follows an alternate version of Loki Laufeyson, which has been played by Tom Hiddleson ever since Thor (2011). Laufeyson faces the Time Variance Authority (or TVA), which struggles with its identity, a variant of themselves in an alternate timeline, and the looming threat from He Who Remains, Kang the Conqueror, after the true nature of his identity was revealed in the finale waning moments. Shortly after the episode came to an end, mid-credits spent no time in hesitation as they shared the message that Loki would return. Outside of the extremely short teasing from Marvel Studios and Disney, the noise around Loki Season 2 has been drawn to a silence, leaving the aftermath of season 1 to leave its impact on the latest phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as it unfolds piece by piece.
What could happen in the second season?
Hiddleson is expected to strongly repeat the role of Laufeyson, as the show’s renewal is expected to deepen the established plotline and cliffhanger ending further. With him he could take a number of familiar faces with him. Sophie D’Martino (Sylvie Laufeydittor) and Owen Wilson (Mobius M. Mobius), as well as Gugu Mbatha-Raw as judges Ravonna Renslayer and Wunmi Mosaku (Hunter B-15), are also hoping for a return to the series. These key characters have considered themselves to be incredibly damaging to the future Loki. After the events of He Who Remains (Jonathan Masters), which claims ownership of TVA, trigger chaos, a multiverse war will soon break out. The second season is bound to indulge in the pandemonium of clashes between universes while keeping pace with a series of overlapping subplots.
Renslayer still pursues his quest for free will, and Hunter B-15, after confirming his theory that other Troopers are simply variants at work, sets out to seek out those responsible for placing them there. In the newborn alternative timeline, Renslayer’s variant finds that she functions as a school vice principal, and there could be an opportunity to see her struggle to return to the universe to which she truly belongs. Laufeyson, in the midst of TVA’s nuance and crying, could be tasked with keeping the newly arrived variants in check while regaining contact with those who were distorted into other worlds. They could in their cries seek out Laufeydittor if she has not gone alone.
In the midst of fervor, the second season could sink more into the development of Marvel’s latest big-bad beginning of the procession of the villain. With the lack of Time-Keepers controlling the course of the right time and keeping the many universes in line, Season 2 has the opportunity to watch TVA from a more independent perspective. It seems like Loki takes the opportunity to put its titular character in the background of their own show, giving fresh faces more airtime as their stories are told.
When will Loki Season 2 arrived?
The president of Marvel Studios has offered insights to those who have been fixated on the season 1 finale and the direction Loki can find themselves heading in when the next season undergoes its development. When Collider was asked about the drama of the season 1 broadcast and any commentary on season 2, Feige replied with “it’s going on. We’re developing it as we speak. The hope is that much of the same team will return. Kate [Herron] goes on to bigger and better things, so that the search for a director begins shortly. “Feige’s comments have suggested that after fhv. Loki director that the studio immediately seeks a suitable replacement for the subsequent season.
Although Herron will not direct God of Mischief’s upcoming adventure on the small screen, the show still promises to continue. Feige’s updates may have been brief, but they ensure that Marvel Studios still intends to provide Loki its additional entry into the series. But seeking out a director puts the show back a bit and delays when the pre-production process can begin without a hitch. It is still unclear how many seasons Loki will expand across the total, however, according to the initial plan of Loki since it is a stand-alone miniseries by Marvel, there is no definitive answer. There is also no definitive answer as to when Loki Season 2 is possibly coming to Disney +, though a sure bet would be to gear up expectations for fall 2023 or later.
