Loki’s Screenwriter Says Thing Will Get Weird(Er) in Season Two
Get this out of the way right now. For those who missed it, there was a brief line of text that stated that Loki’s solo vehicle would be returning for a second season, which premiered in July 2013. There was no specific time frame in mind. Thanks to Marvel chief Kevin Feige, we now know when the trickster will return. On Friday, Feige announced that production on Loki will begin within the next few weeks during a presentation to advertisers at Disney. Loki is also the most popular Marvel series on Disney+, according to the exec.
Even Loki’s screenwriter, Michael Waldron, is hinting at the future of the series. Polygon asked Waldron if the second season of Loki could be even more bizarre than the first, which was timed to coincide with another Marvel project he wrote, a short film called Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Waldron remarked, “I don’t know if we could go any weirder than we did in Season One. At the party, we had an alligator drinking wine from a kiddie pool. That was strange on a scale only a mountain climber could comprehend! There’s a lot of potentials there, in my opinion. We’re always looking for new ways to improve, but we want to make sure that our efforts are always motivated by virtue. And yeah, I learned from this movie once again, that no idea is too crazy. You can write Stephen Strange possessing his corpse, and maybe you’ll end up shooting it. This gives me the confidence to try new things.
Let’s get down to business. It’s time to speculate about the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, given that Loki sparked at least several years of action. Season two of Loki will feature several potentially billion-dollar-grossing stories, so while we’re at it, let’s take a look ahead to those as well. If you have any questions about Loki’s future, please feel free to contact us!
What will season two of Loki be about?
All right, that’s good. So Sylvie started a multiverse war out of the blue. We’re about to see an infinite number of Kangas wreak havoc on the MCU, according to Kang’s episode-long breakdown of his plans. Spider-Man: No Way Home and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which both depicted multiversal shenanigans, have helped to bring this saga to a close. Anthology film Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania will likely bear the brunt of Loki’s post-earthquake devastation.

Season Two of Loki is expected to premiere sometime in 2023, possibly as a follow-up to Quantumania. Sylvie sends Loki, the God of Mischief, to the TVA headquarters in a different timeline, one that Kang has already conquered at the end of Loki. Since Sylvie was the one who killed Kang, we’ll likely see HiddleLoki shortly after the events of Loki, trying to make amends with TVA for everything that happened before Sylvie did it. It’s the one-horned wonder that has everyone talking. When we see her again, she’ll have a lot to explain to us. In the end, we hope that Sylvie and Loki will become the power couple that we’ve all dreamed of. To rectify the situation, they’ll meet up with superheroes like Doctor Strange along the way.”
When will season two of Loki air?
Cowboy, you better hold on tight! (Sorry. I’m still haunted by the screams of Miss Minutes.) A release date for the film is still some time off. If you want to see more of Tom Hiddleston, you’ll have to wait until Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania arrives in theatres on February 17, 2023.
