Loki season 2 is still coming in October; however, in an unexpected move, Disney+ has changed the Loki season 2 release date once again.

Loki is about to bend time even more by changing its own “Sacred Timeline” of episode releases. Yep, our favorite God of Mischief is set to cause his majestic ruckus on Thursday nights, starting with the season 2 premiere on October 5.

You read it correctly – Thursday nights! Let’s take a look at the details.

Loki season 2 release date: What time will Loki season 2 episodes be released?

Originally, Disney+ had announced the Loki season 2 release date for Friday, Oct. 6 with episodes dropping at the usual 3 a.m. ET window. However, Disney+ has now announced that the Loki season 2 release date has been shifted to Thursday, Oct. 5 with episodes now debuting at 9 p.m. ET every Thursday.

Why is a primetime release for Loki season 2 a big deal?

Apart from it being Marvel’s first primetime slot, the release time is more watch-friendly. Previously, we found ourselves waking up at 3 a.m. E.T. to catch the newest episode, and with this nice little change, we can all get some more sleep. Thanks, Disney.

Season 2 of Loki is looking pretty promising so far as we can’t wait to dig deeper into the Multiverse, variants, Kang, and more. But the most exciting twist of all? We don’t have to wait until the weekend to get our Loki fix anymore.

Thursday nights are about to become “Loki Nights,” and you won’t want to miss a single minute of it.
