The timelines have aligned and we are in one of the good ones. How can I tell? Because Disney just confirmed that Loki will return for a second season on October 6. Two summers ago, we saw a classic Marvel post-credits tag that told us the God Mischief would indeed return following the epic season finale. We just didn't know when. Two years later, and here we are.
Plus, we have some amazing set photos to share. That's right, scroll down. You're looking at a reunited Loki and Mobius back in action, wearing their TVA uniforms, no less. Now, it's hard to guess what, exactly, this means for Season Two of the series, but surely the duo is working together to stop one (or two, or three, or 1,000) of the Kangs. Now, given that Loki instigated *checks calendar* at least several years of action in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it's time to wildly speculate what's in store for its future episodes. So if we're talking about what's going to happen in Season Two of Loki, it's probably best to, you know, take stock on the hours and hours of likely-billion-dollar-grossing stories while we're at it. Here's everything we know about the future of Loki so far.

What will season two of Loki be about?
All right. So Sylvie just up and started a multiversal war. Per Kang's episode-long breakdown of his plans, we're about to see an infinite amount of Kangs bust up the MCU. This saga has somewhat played out over the course of Spider-Man: No Way Home and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which both depicted multiversal shenanigans. Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, which also involved Kang and a multiverse-related plot, has seen the brunt of Loki's aftershock so far.
In the ending of Loki, Sylvie boots the God of Mischief to the TVA headquarters in another timeline, one that Kang has already conquered. So it's incredibly likely that, at some point, we'll catch up with HiddleLoki right after the events of the first season, watching the newfound good guy try to catch up the TVA on everything that happened before Sylvie killed Kang. As for the one-horned wonder? She'll have some splainin' to do when we meet up with her next. Maybe, just maybe, this is the event that teaches her how to trust—leading to the inevitable Sylvie-Loki power couple of our dreams. Then, we'll see them try to un-do the catastrophe they started, meeting up with heroes like Doctor Strange along the way.
Last May, Loki's screenwriter, Michael Waldron, teased what might be in store for the future of the series. In an interview with Polygon—timed to another Marvel he wrote, a little film called Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness—Waldron was asked if Loki's second season could out-weird the first. “I don’t know if I could go any weirder than we went in Season One,” Waldron said. “We had an alligator drinking wine out of a kiddie pool. That felt like the Mount Everest peak of weird! I think there’s plenty of opportunity there. We’re always looking to outdo ourselves, but hopefully it’s always driven by character. And yeah, I learned on this movie once again, no idea is too crazy. You can write Stephen Strange possessing his own corpse, and maybe you’ll end up shooting it. That encourages me to be bold, which is good.”
Loki Season Two will premiere on October 6, 2023—right before The Marvels hits theaters this November.
