As mentioned in the recently released season 1 conclusion, Loki season 2 is now in the works at Marvel Studios. Tom Hiddleston’s MCU journey continues on television, with reports that he will reprise his role as the God of Mischief when the show returns for its second season.

Loki is the next MCU show to premiere on Disney+, and it begins with the trickster escaping with the Tesseract during the botched New York leg of Avengers: Endgame’s time heist. The Time Variance Authority/TVA, an institution that apparently oversees the correct passage of time, immediately apprehended him. Instead of being promptly trimmed for deviating from his pre-determined course, Agent Mobius tapped him.Mobius (Owen Wilson) is enlisted to assist them in their search for a rogue Loki version, Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino). However, after discovering that the Time-Keepers do not exist, Loki and Sylvie decide to work together to find the being responsible for the TVA.

There’s an obvious set-up for more storylines near the end of Loki season 1. However, it wasn’t until the post-credits sequence that the God of Mischief’s TVA form was marked with “LOKI WILL RETURN IN SEASON 2” that Loki season 2 was confirmed.

Loki is the only MCU show to have received a renewal thus far. WandaVision has already been confirmed as a limited series, while The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is still waiting for word on a possible second season. This isn’t exactly shocking, though. Coming into the Hiddleston-led series, Marvel Studios was up forward about Loki’s storyline having the potential to span numerous seasons. It all makes sense now that the season 1 finale is out. Sylvie drives the God of Mischief back into the TVA after Jonathan Majors’ He Who Remains is discovered. He was relocated to a different version of the same organization from the one he was previously in —  one where Kang the Conqueror openly manages the bureau.

Now the only issue is when Loki season 2 will premiere. The current Marvel Studios slate, both on the big and small screen, is loaded until at least 2023. With that in mind, fitting in the return of the just finished event could be difficult. Another element to consider is Kang the Conqueror’s (and his variants’) involvement in other initiatives. He’s only confirmed to appear as the main villain in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania thus far, but he could show up in other films as well, especially if they have anything to do with the multiverse’s unleashing at the end of Loki season 1.
