Following in the footsteps of Lucasfilm’s most recent Star Wars streaming series, Ahsoka, the upcoming second season of Marvel Studios’ Loki has shifted its release date just a couple of weeks away from its premiere. Originally intended to debut on Friday, October 6th, Tom Hiddleston will instead make his glorious return to Disney Plus on October 5th.
The new promo also revealed that, like Ahsoka, new episodes of Loki will roll out at 6 PM PT/9 PM ET rather than the 12 AM PT/3 AM ET slot that Disney’s streaming shows had previously been attached to. While it’s still to early to know exactly how big of a difference the new time slot will make, anecdotal evidence suggests that fans are much happier not having to wait until the middle of the night to catch their favorite show.
Loki Season 2 picks up in the aftermath of the shocking season finale when Loki finds himself in a battle for the soul of the Time Variance Authority. Along with Mobius, Hunter B-15 and a team of new and returning characters, Loki navigates an ever-expanding and increasingly dangerous multiverse in search of Sylvie, Judge Renslayer, Miss Minutes and the truth of what it means to possess free will and glorious purpose.
