Time’s running out and Tom Hiddleston’s God of Mischief has some tough choices to make in the first official trailer for Season 2 of the Disney+ series Loki. Building on last year’s first look teaser, this latest preview offers a broader sense of what Hiddleston’s Loki and Owen Wilson’s Mobius will be up against, apart from the MCU’s big bad Jonathan Majors‘ Kang the Conqueror, of course.
Season 1 of the Marvel Disney+ TV series concluded with Sophia Di Martino’s Sylvie, a female Loki variant, killing He Who Remains, a variant of Majors’ Kang, resulting in the shattering of the sacred timeline into countless branches. The season finale episode ended with Loki back in the TVA and meeting Mobius, who no longer remembers him and discovering statues of Majors’ Kang throughout the TVA.
Loki Season 2 trailer picks up right where we left our anti-hero, who now has some big mess to clean. Throughout the new trailer, we see Loki experiencing unexpected blips and slips through time, causing him to glitch out through different eras, a phenomenon that has been dubbed “timeslipping.” We open with Owen Wilson’s Mobius and Loki back in the TVA visiting Ke Huy Quan, the Oscar-winning star of Everything Everywhere All at Once, who here plays “OB,” who’s like a fixer of sorts. Wilson reveals Loki’s timeslipping shenanigans to Quan, asking for a fix since timeslipping isn’t allowed in the TVA.
“I’ve been pulled through time between the past and the present,” Loki says in the trailer. “If what I saw was true, there is nothing that stands between this world and utter destruction.” In the trailer, we see Loki slipping into various places, followed by our first brief look at Sophia Di Martino’s Sylvie, who’s dealing with issues of her own. Things get crazy when Loki and Mobius start time-hopping to restore the fractured timeline. But Hiddleston’s God of Mischief will need to make a few tough choices since “the timeline is running out.” As Loki questions in the trailer, “How do you choose who lives and who dies?” If Kang is to be believed, Loki will need to “make the hard choice.”
We catch fleeting glimpses of Jonathan Majors’ Victor Timely, the variant of He Who Remains, who was last seen in the post-credits of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. While Majors himself doesn’t show up anywhere, the new trailer does seem to set him as the next big Avenger-level threat. Apart from Loki’s timeslipping, we also catch up with some other TVA employees, such as Wunmi Mosaku’s Hunter B-15, Gugu Mbatha-Raw’s Ravonna Renslayer, Eugene Cordero’s Casey, and Tara Strong’s Miss Minutes, who all seem to be going through some pretty strange timelines of their own.
The Loki Season 2 trailer also features a pretty cool exchange between Loki and Sylvie about them being gods and later teaming up to perform some impressive Asgardian magic. Loki Season 2 will pack in a total of six fresh new episodes, with Eric Martin serving as the head writer for the series. The episodes are directed by Justin Benson & Aaron Moorhead, Kasra Farahani, and Dan Deleeuw, while Michael Waldron, the creator of Loki, acts as an executive producer, alongside Victoria Alonso, Louis D’Esposito, and Kevin Feige.
Loki season 2 hits Disney+ on October 6.
