Being grateful to the introduction of Time Travel in Avengers: Endgame, we could witness Loki in Season 1. With the conclusion of Season 1 in July airing six episodes, the thrilled fans are excited for Season 2 of Loki.
Recently, Tom Hiddleston, our on-screen Loki, teases about what will happen in Season 2, speaking with Empire Magazine. Loki revealed some crucial details of Season 2 and what the fans can expect. Moreover, more critical information has come up about the second season. So keep reading further to know all about the upcoming season of Loki.
Loki Season 2: What Will Happen?
Recently, Tom Hiddleston teased that Season 2 will witness more confrontations for Loki as he begins searching for Sylvie. He expressed that Loki feels he has made a mistake by leaving Sylvie behind, and something needs to be done. Therefore, he will set his course to find her no matter what.
The last season finale witnessed Sylvie and Loki finally reach the doomy Citadel at the “End Of Time.” The duo meets “He Who Remains,” a variant of Kang the conqueror. Kang turns out to be the head of the TVA. In the end, Sylvie kisses Loki and sends him back to the Time-Variant Authority while she kills he who remains and unleased the multiverse. The shocking cliffhanger ending certainly left the fans in awe and suggested that the series will cover much ground in the upcoming season.
Also, when the multiverse unleashed, a lot of changes occur in the timeline. When Loki reached back to the TVA, it appeared to be in some different timeline. Agent Mobius and Hunter B-15, who revolved around Loki all season, could not even recognize him. They do not remember Loki as Mobis and Hunter seem to be different versions from an alternate timeline. With so many alterations in the timeline and the multiverse come various opportunities for unpredictable twists next season.
