Loki fans, your prayers have been heeded! Marvel has announced that 'Loki' Season 2 will officially start weaving its mischief on Disney+ in the cozy autumn months, pushing the sizzling summer slot to the Samuel L. Jackson-led 'Secret Invasion'.
Loki's Fall Debut
The big news was dropped by Kevin Feige, the head honcho at Marvel Studios. In the Disney+ Upfront on Tuesday, he announced that the second season of Loki, featuring everyone's favorite God of Mischief, would premiere on October 6. He smoothly sidestepped a possible controversy looming over 'Loki' Season 2: the involvement of Jonathan Majors.
A Stellar Cast Returns, Sans Mention of Jonathan Majors
Feige is enthused that "Loki" will be the studio’s "first-ever second season," continuing the enthralling narrative of Tom Hiddleston’s Loki and his reality-warping escapades from Season 1. He praised the return of co-stars Owen Wilson and Sophia DiMartino and the debut of Oscar-winning "Everything Everywhere All at Once" star Ke Huy Quan, according to Variety. However, Feige refrained from referencing the expected reappearance of Jonathan Majors reprising his role as one of the variants of the Marvel villain, Kang, from Season 1.
Jonathan Majors' return in Loki Season 2 was hinted at in the end-credits scene for 'Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania.' This scene suggested that Tom Hiddleston's Loki and Owen Wilson's Mobius would be pursuing Kang variants across the multiverse, a plotline that could attract some unwelcome attention in light of Majors' recent arrest for alleged domestic assault.
When is 'Loki' Season 2 set to premiere?
'Loki' Season 2 is scheduled to premiere on October 6 on Disney+.
Who is expected to return in the cast of 'Loki' Season 2?
Tom Hiddleston, Owen Wilson, and Sophia DiMartino are set to return in 'Loki' Season 2. Ke Huy Quan will also join the cast. However, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige did not mention Jonathan Majors, who is expected to reprise his role as one of the variants of Kang.
