The first season of the Disney+ series Loki starring Tom Hiddleston ended on a cliffhanger of sorts, with the Time Keepers seemingly replaced by He Who Remains (portrayed by Jonathan Majors), a variant of Marvel Comics long-time villain Kang the Conqueror. (Kang, it should be noted, will be the villain of the upcoming Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.)
While a second season was already announced as a certainty in the credits of the season 1 finale, at Disney Upfronts 2022 on Monday, the House of Mouse confirmed that production of the new season will be underway in a few weeks, with all the principal cast members back for the ride.
Loki season 1 introduced the idea of the multiverse into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, a concept that has since been re-examined in the Disney+ anthology series What If…?, as well as in the films Spider-Man: No Way Home and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. With the nature of the Quantum Realm as precarious as it is—something that played a significant role in Avengers: Endgame—it’s a good guess that Quantumania will figure into this examination (if the appearance of Kang wasn’t a good enough indicator).
In what form will He Who Remains take in season 2–if he’s in the season at all? Will the second season crossover into the third Ant-Man installment? Will the series’ “main” Loki ever encounter his brother and other Asgardians again? We’ll let you know when we know when Loki season 2 is going to drop!
