The second season of the American television series Loki, based on Marvel Comics featuring the character of the same name, sees Loki working with Mobius M. Mobius, Hunter B-15, and other members of the Time Variance Authority (TVA) to navigate the multiverse in order to find Sylvie, Ravonna Renslayer, and Miss Minutes. It is set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), sharing continuity with the films of the franchise. The season is produced by Marvel Studios, with Eric Martin serving as head writer and Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead leading the directing team.
Tom Hiddleston reprises his role as Loki from the film series, starring alongside Sophia Di Martino (Sylvie), Wunmi Mosaku (Hunter B-15), Eugene Cordero, Neil Ellice, Owen Wilson (Mobius), Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Renslayer), Tara Strong (Miss Minutes), and Jonathan Majors, all of whom reprising their roles from the first season. New additions to the cast include Rafael Casal, Kate Dickie, Liz Carr, Ke Huy Quan, and Richard Dixon. Development on a second season had begun by November 2020, and was confirmed in July 2021, with Martin, Benson, and Moorhead all hired by late February 2022. Filming began in June 2022 at Pinewood Studios and concluded in October. Dan DeLeeuw and Kasra Farahani were revealed as additional directors for the season in June 2023.
The second season debuted on Disney+ on October 5, 2023, and ran for six episodes until November 9, as part of Phase Five of the MCU. The critical reception was generally favorable, with praise for its conclusion, its musical score, and Loki’s character arc.
- Tom Hiddleston as Loki:
Thor’s adopted brother and the god of mischief, based on the Norse mythological deity of the same name. He is an alternate, “time variant” version of Loki who created a new timeline in Avengers: Endgame (2019) beginning in 2012. He is time slipping, being pulled through time between the past, present, and future. Hiddleston said the season sees Loki “understanding himself”, having found this new Time Variance Authority (TVA) family and his “new capacity to make connections”, with the character finally finding a meaning and purpose in trying to help protect the TVA and his friends there.
- Sophia Di Martino as Sylvie:
A variant of Loki who broke the timeline through killing He Who Remains in a misguided act of revenge. The season sees Sylvie working as a cashier at a McDonald’s in a branched timeline, in 1982 Broxton, Oklahoma.
- Wunmi Mosaku as Hunter B-15:
A high-ranking Hunter of the TVA. Following the branching of the timeline, she is working to reform the TVA and protect the new timelines and variants, given she has learned she is variant herself.
- Mosaku also portrays Dr. Verity Willis, a pediatrician from 2012 New York City.
- Eugene Cordero as Casey: A TVA receptionist.
- Cordero also portrays Frank Morris, a famous bank robber and Alcatraz escapee.
- Rafael Casal as Hunter X-5 / Brad Wolfe:
A TVA Hunter with a close connection to General Dox. Casal called Hunter X-5 “Loki’s mirror—another person who feels wronged. He’s a bit of a lost character and almost feels like an earlier version of Loki, reflecting back to him.” Director Dan DeLeeuw called X-5 “more of a straight villain, more of a heavy; a foil for Loki”. Executive producer Kevin Wright spoke to X-5’s relationship to Dox, noting it had a “maternal” quality, but questioned how much of that was because of their past lives, or “institutionalized from being in the TVA”. X-5 finds his real life on the Sacred Timeline and becomes the actor Brad Wolfe. DeLeeuw thought Casal “brought an interesting humanity” to his portrayal of Wolfe, explaining that it was his choice to become Wolfe to break free from the TVA being X-5’s reality. As well, the creative team “couldn’t resist” having a character who no longer believed in the reality of the TVA becoming an actor, given Wolfe now “puts on a perception of reality for a living”.
- Kate Dickie as General Dox: A TVA general who is part of the new TVA council of judges following Renslayer’s disappearance. She is searching for Sylvie and still believes in the TVA’s mission to prune branched timelines.
- Liz Carr as Judge Gamble: A paraplegic TVA judge who is part of the TVA council.
- Neil Ellice as Hunter D-90: A TVA Hunter.
- Ke Huy Quan as Ouroboros:
A TVA technician who works in its Repairs and Advancement Department. Described as the “quirky repair guy”, Wright explained that every piece of technology at the TVA was either designed by Ouroboros or he knows how to fix it and keep it operational. Quan felt Ouroboros was thrilled to be doing his job, despite working long hours alone in isolation. Introducing the character in the season was meant to highlight other parts of the TVA not seen in the first season to show how “massive” the organization was.
- Quan also portrays A.D. Doug, theoretical physics teacher at Caltech and failed science fiction author from 1994 Pasadena, California.
- Owen Wilson as Mobius M. Mobius: An agent of the TVA and friend of Loki. Wilson said that the season explores more of Mobius’ past and sees him struggling to accept a new reality, with the character losing some of his control and becoming more vulnerable.
- Wilson also portrays Don, a jet ski salesman and single father from 2022 Cleveland, Ohio.
- Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Ravonna Renslayer: A former TVA judge who has gone missing and has connections to He Who Remains.
- Tara Strong as Miss Minutes:
The animated anthropomorphic AI clock mascot of the TVA created by He Who Remains who is in love with him and jealous of Renslayer. Humanizing Miss Minutes and exploring her human desires and aspirations was discussed early on in the season’s development. Director/production designer Kasra Farahani noted how “reductive characters” are referred to as cartoons “in a pejorative way”, and the creatives wanted to give Miss Minutes, an actual cartoon, “these super awkward and complex emotional feelings”. Natasha Arancini acts as the on-set stand-in for Miss Minutes.
- Richard Dixon as Robber Baron: An unnamed industrialist who purchases a faulty invention from Victor Timely at the 1893 Chicago’s World’s Fair.
- Jonathan Majors as Victor Timely and He Who Remains: Variants of Kang the Conqueror.
- Victor Timely is an industrialist and inventor in 1893 on a branched timeline who has created an early version of the Temporal Loom. He has a stutter and an awkward, timid personality, and acts as a con man selling others his creations. Discussing the contrasting personality of Timely to other Kang variants, Wright said it was “fun” to have Timely be “sort of an eccentric, quiet inventor that maybe is, like, a bit out of time and out of place” rather than the expectation of the next Kang variant to appear in the MCU to be “some sci-fi villain from the future”. Marvel Studios was excited to continue exploring Kang and his variants in the season, particularly wanting Timely for Loki, with Wright noting his inclusion and integration would be “a big part” of the season. Majors and Farahani were drawn to real-life inventor Granville Woods, whose life had many parallels to Timely’s, with Majors creating Timely’s mannerisms, physicality, quirkiness and “the specific mix of how he represented intellectual brilliance with social awkwardness, a degree of charlatanism and pathos”. Nasri Thompson portrays a young Timely.
- He Who Remains is a scientist from the 31st century who ended the first multiversal war by destroying “evil variants” of himself and created the TVA to prevent a new multiverse from forming and to keep his variants from coming back into existence.
Loki star Tom Hiddleston and executive producer Kevin Wright began having conversations during production of the season one episode “Lamentis” regarding “how this world could build out” to “dive deeper into it”. Development on a second season had begun by November 2020. In January 2021, the first season’s head writer Michael Waldron signed an overall deal with Disney which included his involvement in the second season of Loki. Marvel Studios producer Nate Moore, who served as an executive producer on the series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, believed Loki had “really irreverent and clever and cool” storylines that lent to the series having multiple seasons rather than being a one-off event. The second season was confirmed through a mid-credits scene in the first-season finale, which was released in July 2021, and Hiddleston said “deep discussions” about the second season were already underway. First season director Kate Herron said she would not return for the second season as she had always planned to only be involved for one season, while Waldron said it “remain to be seen” if he would be involved.
In February 2022, the directing duo Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead were hired to direct a majority of the episodes for the second season. They previously directed two episodes of another Marvel Studios series, Moon Knight (2022), which went so well that the studio wanted them to work on other projects and they were quickly chosen for the second season of Loki. Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige had approached the duo while they were working on additional photography for Moon Knight to have them meet with Wright and Hiddleston to discuss coming on board for the season. Eric Martin, a first-season writer who took over some of Waldron’s duties during production on that season, was set to write all six episodes of the second season, with Hiddleston and Waldron confirmed to be returning as executive producers. Benson and Moorhead were excited to approach another character in Loki who, like Moon Knight‘s Marc Spector / Moon Knight, was defined by being an outcast and had “complexity in being outcast”. Pre-production had begun by the end of April 2022. Dan DeLeeuw, a visual effects supervisor and second unit director on several MCU films, and season one production designer Kasra Farahani were revealed as directors in June 2023; they each directed one episode of the season, with Benson and Moorhead directing the other four. DeLeeuw was chosen to direct given his past work directing second units for Marvel Studios, as well as his approach to character in the visual effects reviews of season one, and Farahani, being a writer and director, was chosen because he “really understood the world and helped build it”. Wright said both “were steady hands who knew this world and these characters”. Executive producers for the season include Marvel Studios’ Feige, Stephen Broussard, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Brad Winderbaum, and Wright, alongside Hiddleston, Benson and Moorhead, Martin, and Waldron.
