Loki Season 2: Is there a release date?
While we do not have an exact release date for the upcoming season, Loki Season 2 is expected to arrive on Disney+ in Summer 2023, as stated by Kevin Feige at San Diego Comic-Con.
However, this date has been put into question after a recent update on Disney+ changed the show’s expected debut to “Coming Soon,” meaning that it could come out any time in 2023.
Whatever release happens, it will be following the release of Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania in February 2023, which features Season 1’s villain He Who Remains, an alternative variant of Kang the Conqueror.
Loki Season 2 cast: Who’s returning for the next season?
Tom Hiddleston and Owen Wilson (Agent Mobius) are set to come back in Season 2, with Gugu Mbatha-Raw also returning as Ravonna Lexus Renslayer, and Wunmi Mosaku as Hunter B-15.
Sophia Di Martino will also return as Sylvie, and we know that she will be trapped working for a 1970s McDonalds, as can be seen in recent set photos.
Eugene Cordero, who played the minor role of Casey in Season 1, is set to appear more frequently in Season 2. Miss Minutes voice actress Tara Strong also confirmed that her character would return for Season 2 in an interview with Popverse.
In terms of new casting, of the biggest casting coups of Season 2 is Everything Everywhere All at Once star Ke Huy Quan, best known for playing Data in The Goonies and Short Round in Indiana Jones.
Kate Dickie, who is known for horror films such as The Witch, will also be making her MCU debut in a currently unknown role. Rafael Casal, who can be seen in a TVA prisoner jumpsuit in the set photos above, is also joining the season as a currently unnamed character.
In terms of the crew, earlier showrunner Kate Herron has departed for Season 2. “I’m really happy to watch it as a fan next season. I just think I’m proud of what we did here and I’ve given it my all,” she told Deadline.

The Endless filmmakers Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead, who also directed two episodes of Moon Knight, have signed on as directors and will co-direct the majority of Season 2’s episodes, while writers Michael Waldron and Eric Martin have also returned.
Do we know what Loki Season 2’s plot is?
No, we do not. Loki’s story has already taken some interesting turns and the writers are especially secretive about Season 2’s plot. The multiverse hanging in the balance, Loki will possibly encounter Kang the Conqueror once more.
However, this is dependent on the villain’s fate in the next Ant-Man movie. Anyone can show up now, as we’ve seen in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, so who will Loki meet next?
Speaking with Total Film, Hiddleston said: “At the end of Season 1, the story isn’t over. I think that’s really clear. Loki’s almost more unstable and as turbulent and passionate and chaotic as he’s ever been. And maybe some of that needs resolution.”
Loki Season 2: What happened in Season 1?
In Avengers: Endgame we saw Loki from the 2012 timeline escape with the Tesseract, leaving his fate open to interpretation. Despite the original Loki dying at the hands of Thanos in Infinity War, the 2012 Loki has found himself captured by the Time Variance Authority.
Effectively acting as the time police of the MCU, they ensure that the multiverse flows without interruption. Loki can’t return to his old ways and must work the Time Variance Authority to fix disruptions, leading to the God of Mischief meeting unusual variants of himself along the way.
In the end, Loki crosses paths with He Who Remains, a mysterious figure who can see into the past, present, and future simultaneously.
By breaking the fabric of time and space, Loki and Sylvie are able to defeat He Who Remains. However, the multiverse is fully ripped open.
Is there a Loki Season 2 trailer?
No, there isn’t an official trailer for Loki Season 2 at the time of writing — but we’ll update this space once it’s shared online. However, a trailer from D23 was leaked online, and it’s available to watch here (if you can bear the terrible quality and lack of sound).
That doesn’t mean there’s no footage out there though. The first bit that has officially been released for Loki Season 2 is from the brand new Disney+ 2023 hype reel.
While other hit shows are included in the teaser, Loki features at large. Offering up some first looks of Tom Hiddleston and Owen Wilson in the second season of the show. That teaser can be viewed below.
