Season 2 will include six all-new episodes, likely around an hour long as was Season 1’s format. No titles or runtimes have been unveiled as of yet.
In February 2022, it was revealed that filming would take place in London during the summer. Since then, filming has commenced and was completed ahead of the ongoing SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes as evidenced by photos taken by fans while shooting took place around the U.K.
The series remains strong with its cast of characters as Tom Hiddleston returns alongside Owen Wilson‘s Mobius, Sophia Di Martino‘s Sylvie, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw‘s Ravonna Renslayer. Eugene Cordero will also be back as he was promoted to a series regular in Season 2, he previously portrayed TVA worker Casey and Hunter K-5E.
Blindspotting‘s Rafael Casal has also been cast, but his character’s exact name hasn’t been officially unveiled. During Disney’s D23 Expo, Kevin Feige revealed that Oscar-winning actor Ke Huy Quan (Everything Everywhere All at Once) has also joined the MCU for Loki‘s second outing. As for Season 1’s Wunmi Mosaku who played, Hunter B-15, she’ll also return alongside Jonathan Majors who is returning as a variant of his Season 1 character He Who Remains, known as Victor Timely.
According to the show’s only Season 2 logline, “the second season promises new excitement as it thrusts the infamous God of Mischief into a new set of adventures with the TVA.” But according to trailers and photos released for the season so far, it appears that the story will pick up where viewers left off as Loki was pushed back into the TVA through a TemPad-created portal opened by Sylvie. After stabbing He Who Remains and setting the sacred timeline free, chaos is sure to ensue as Loki experiences something known as “time slipping” as different realities begin crashing into one another.
Only time will tell where the latest chapter will take fans, but it’s sure to be exciting. One detail we do know about Season 2’s storylines is Loki and Sylvie are set to reunite at a 1982 McDonald’s which was carefully created for the screen with the help of the fast food chain’s historian. The company has been promoting the show’s return with a special Loki-branded Sweet ‘N Sour sauce.
