Is the God of Mischief coming back in 2023? Continue reading to learn more about Disney+’s Loki Season 2.
With one month into the new year, it’s surprising that Marvel hasn’t confirmed more details about the television season of 2023–24 like they did last year, which was jam-packed with original movies and series from start to finish in order to expand the franchise into Phase 5 after the beloved “Endgame,” era of the MCU ended on a note to continue many stories by introducing multiversal characters and storylines from the comics to the big screens!
To say the least, since the beginning of 2023, die-hard fans have been more eager to explore the world than ever! If you are one of those who wants to quell all your doubts, then you have reached the right place. As we have compiled a list of all the things you should look forward to, including the release date and plot, among other information, while you revisit the previous season.
Here’s everything we know so far about Loki Season 2’s schedule on Disney+.
Loki Season 2: Is it premiering in February 2023 or not?
If you recall, the development of the second season began back in November 2020, way before the first season even premiered on Disney+, and the filming began in June 2022 at Pinewood Studios and concluded in October. Since then, the fans have been patiently waiting for more updates.
Sadly, it has come to our attention that Loki Season 2 was not included in the list of new releases in February 2023, which is a little disappointing, but we urge the fans to keep their heads up! As it stands, this is not a cause for concern, as the network last year confirmed that the show will deficiently return in the summer of 2023 as part of Phase Five of the MCU.
Moreover, if we consider the last season with a bit of speculation, then the new season will release sometime in June and have the same premiere time as other shows on the streaming service, which is 12:00 a.m. (PT) or 3:00 a.m. (ET). In addition to this, the official Twitter handle of the show also confirmed the news among its followers below:

Loki Season 2: What is the next season about?
While the specifics of the plot are currently being kept under wraps for some time now. Loki head writer Michael Waldron spoke to Marvel about Majors’ earth-shattering appearance in the second season, quoting, “Knowing that Kang was probably going to be the next big cross-movie villain, and because he is a time-traveling, multiversal adversary, it just always made so much sense,” he said.
Further adding, “I came up with that big multiversal war mythology and pitched it out in the room one day to our producers. And they said, ‘Yeah, let’s go for it.’ We knew we were going to end up meeting the man behind the curtain. And then it was just on us to make sure that that meeting really delivered.”
Moreover, teasing the crowd at D23 Expo 2022, Hiddleston revealed that Season 2 picks up right where Season 1 left off, with Loki in a familiar, but strange, place. “Loki is back at the TVA, he’s had a very difficult confrontation with Sylvie, and Mobius and Hunter B-15 don’t know who he is.” Nothing that he saw Jonathan Majors backstage, who played Kang in Season 1, Di Martino quipped, “I thought I killed that guy!” Take a look at some pictures from the D23 Expo 2022 event below:
