The god of mischief is coming back to our TV screens soon. Following the release of Disney+'s Loki series in 2021, it has been confirmed that the upcoming second season will be part of the MCU's Phase 5, which recently kicked off with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Taking place after the events of Avengers: Endgame, the show follows an alternate version of Loki (Tom Hiddleston) after he has created a new timeline. Throughout the first season, the alternate Loki works with the Time Variance Authority (TVA) to help monitor the timeline and eliminate other time variants. Along the way, he makes some interesting friends, including a time variant of himself, leading to the introduction of He Who Remains (played by Jonathan Majors), who created the TVA to prevent a multiversal war between variants of himself. One of those said variants, Kang the Conqueror, made his MCU debut in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and the first tease of Loki season 2 was unveiled during the film's end-credits. Here's everything to know about the new season of Loki. Everything to Know About 'Avengers: The Kang Dynasty' What will Loki season 2 be about? Jonathan Majors in Loki. Marvel Studios The two end-credits scenes for Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania set up the second season of Loki. In the first, we are introduced to a Council of Kangs as they decide to assemble all Kang variants in an effort to prepare for a multiversal war. In the second end-credits scene, Loki and Mobius come in contact with a new variant of Kang. Set in the early 1900s, the variant introduces himself as Victor Timely. In the comics, Victor Timely is a version of Kang who travels back in time and creates various advanced technology in hopes of eventually defeating the Avengers. As Loki and Mobius watch Victor Timely's presentation from the audience, Loki informs Mobius, "That's him." Not impressed, Mobius quips, "I thought you said he was terrifying?," to which Loki replies, "He is." It seems as the new season of Loki picks up, Mobius and Loki will work together to track down Kang variants through time in an effort to stop a multiversal war, potentially leading to Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars.
