Cunning, unreliable, crazy, and charismatic…Who could this be other than the most beloved villain of Marvel comics: Loki!

Loki Season 2 Release Date MCU: When is Loki Season 2
Loki Season 1 took about 18 months to be released from the beginning of its filming until its official wrap-up. However, there was a major obstacle, pandemic, which delayed the production process for about 6 months. Thus, we can roughly say that it takes about 12 months to release a season of Loki mini-series in normal circumstances. Although there is no official release date as of now, based on the expected filming date of Loki Season 2, which is January 2022, we can positively estimate that Loki Season 2 will be released on January 2023.

Loki Season 1 had a talented cast that was consisting of an ensemble group of actors. Not only Hiddleston but also Sophia Di Martino as Sylvie, Tara Strong as Miss Minutes, Wunmi Mosaku as Hunter B-15, Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Ravonna Renslayer, Eugene Cordero as Casey proved that they are a great crew that can produce magnificent work together.
We need to give a special shoutout to our favorite, Owen Wilson as Mobius since he brought his unique style of acting to the series and elevated it. In Loki Season 2, we can expect all of these characters to return.
However, we hope that Loki Season 2 will introduce even more, interesting characters. Apart from multiple Loki variants, we can expect cameos from various other Marvel characters, such as Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange. Another critical inclusion to the cast is expected to be Jonathan Majors as Kang the Conqueror, who was already presented to the Loki at the series end. With the inclusion of him, we expect some jaw-dropping multi-verse plots at Loki Season 2.

Loki Finale Explained
Loki Season 1 has presented us with many interesting facts about the Marvel universe, more importantly, the multiverse. However, the season finale was definitely the best when it comes to information dropping. First of all, we met with Kang the Conqueror, who is expected to be not only present at the Loki Season 2, but also will be the main villain in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
After making Loki variants suffer as the head of millions of timelines, Kang finally decides to give Loki a chance to choose between either usurping the Time-Keepers and become the ruler of everything or burning everything down in seek of revenge.
Loki choices the first option, not out of narcissistic desires, but out of fear of what the other option may cause as it will create a multiverse of Kangs. However, Sylvie, who is seeking not only revenge but also free will for all, opposes Loki’s decision. Thus, once Loki leaves, she kills Kang and causes the timeline branches to intensify.
We don’t know what happened to Sylvie after that point. Loki, on the other hand, realized what happened and decided to do something about it. On his way, he came across Mobius and Hunter B-15, who turned out to be from another timeline and thus could not help Loki. After seeing a statute of Kang, Loki understands that he is at a new timeline.
We don’t know what will Loki Season 2 bring us. Yet, as there are millions of choices, timelines, Loki variants, and universes, we cannot wait for Loki Season 2 to be released.
