The official synopsis for Loki season 2 sets the stage for an intense and mind-bending multiversal journey. It reads as follows: : “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.

While details about the second season of Loki are still largely under wraps, it’s clear that the show will be exploring some exciting new territory. The first season of the Marvel series was a critical and commercial success, with many praising Tom Hiddleston’s performance as the God of Mischief.
