The show was one of Disney Plus’ biggest success stories of 2021, but Loki season 2 will not be arriving in January 2022.
It looks like it’s set to be some time before the God of Mischief resurfaces in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
After years of being a show-stealing supporting star across the MCU in various movies, particularly the Thor franchise, Tom Hiddleston got the chance to shine in a greater capacity in Disney Plus‘ Loki.
Centering on the version of the trickster that made his way into the timeline with the Tesseract, Loki expanded on the MCU’s time travel mythology, introduced the Time Variance Authority and set the stage for the next earth-shattering (or multiverse-shattering) stage of Marvel Studios’ shared universe of superheroes.
The series will return for a second season sometime in the future, but we don’t quite know when. One thing we do know, however, is that it won’t be gracing Disney Plus with its presence this month.
Loki season 2 release date
No definitive release date for Loki season 2 has been set, particularly because filming has yet to commence on the second season.
The first season concluded in July 2021, and it was immediately followed by the announcement that the show would return for another outing in the future. As for when fans can expect it, it’s hard to make any kind of predictions as little-to-no information about it has surfaced since then.
After director Kate Herron’s departure, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige revealed to Collider that the search for a new director was taking place but that shooting of the project might not commence until sometime in 2022 or even 2023.
Thus, while it’s possible that production could begin later this year, the longer it takes to get started, the more that a release date of 2023 seems likely.
