If there’s one thing we’ve learned about Loki After his 12 years in the MCU, when you think he’s lost count, he comes back with momentum.
In the first season of the acclaimed Disney Plus series, the character fought his way back into the MCU after the Avenger’s botched time heist Endgame allowed the God of Mischief to sneak in through the multiversal backdoor and begin a new timeline. This, of course, alerts the TVA (Time Variance Authority) to his presence, and as the first season comes to a close, Loki has experienced a major character arc: he becomes a member of the TVA, falling in love with himself, aka his variant Sylvie ( Sophia Di Martino), gained a new best friend in Mobius (Owen Wilson), helped uncover the truth about the Time-Keepers, helped wreak multiversal chaos through the death of He Who Remains, and ended up in a place where no one more there was remembers who he is.
Season 2 is moving forward at full speed, without any significant jumps in time. When we meet Loki, he’s facing the version of Mobius we saw in the season one finale – the one who has no idea who he is. On top of that, the TVA is completely changed by Sylvie plunging a sword into the heart of whoever remains, and to make matters worse, Loki keeps slipping time into the past and the future.
While simultaneously trying to solve this time-slipping problem, Loki and Mobius work together to locate Sylvie, Hunter B-15 (Wunmi Mosaku), Miss Minutes, and other familiar faces, including Jonathan Majors’ Victor Timely, the we saw the end credits of the film Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania I also heard mention of He Who Remains briefly in the season one finale.
Season 2 is a direct sequel to Season 1 in more ways than one, and according to the series’ executive producer, the fun may not stop there.
Will Loki return for a third season?
LokiThe executive producer of Kevin Wright seems to think this should be the case.
When talking to diversity Before the season 2 premiere, Wright explained that both seasons 1 and 2 were intended to exist as “two chapters of the same book.” He also suggested that there should be plenty more story to my story Loki received the green light for a third outing.
“Seasons 1 and 2 were always structured to be two chapters of the same book. The hope would be that in the future there will be more books that allow us to tell these stories. I definitely think we could start with that.
Of course, Marvel hasn’t confirmed a third season yet, so the answer is currently unknown. Season 2 was originally confirmed during the post-credit scene in the Season 1 finale. If the same is true for Season 3, we’ll have to wait until November 9 to find out for sure.
Wright also said he has high hopes for Loki to rejoin the larger MCU outside of the TVA. With Avengers: Secret Invasion The possibility is not too far away on the horizon. If Loki Season 1 may have introduced the multiverse Loki Season 3 could conclude everything. This is what is called a poetic bookend.
