If you’ve been waiting to see Tom Hiddleston back again as the God of Mischief, wait no more. Marvel has finally set the Disney+ premiere dates for season two of Loki, as well as Echo!
Disney+ has also taken a new approach this time around, with Loki releasing weekly like all other Marvel Disney+ series, while Echo will release all episodes on premiere day.
Season two of Loki will debut on 6 October. The first-ever second season for a Marvel Disney+ series, Loki will see the God of Mischief hop back into the a time-hopping mess from season one and the return of Owen Wilson and Sophia DiMartino as Morbius and Sylvie respectively.
Oscar-winning Everything Everywhere All At Once star Ke Huy Quan is also set to appear in the second season. Jonathan Majors, who played He Who Remains in Loki season one and Kang the Conqueror in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is also rumoured to return, though there has been no confirmation from Marvel head Kevin Feige amidst news of domestic violence charges against the actor.
Rick and Morty‘s Eric Martin also returns to write all of the episodes for season two of Loki. Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead serve as directors.
Meanwhile, Echo, the spin-off series to Marvel’s Hawkeye is debuting a month later on 29 November. Echo will continue the story of Maya Lopez (Alaqua Cox), the deaf Native American assassin.
Echo also stars Zahn McClarnon (Reservation Dogs), Graham Greene (Dances With Wolves), Chase Spencer (Wild Indian), Tantoo Cardinal (Killers of the Flower Moon), Devery Jacobs (Reservation Dogs) and Cody Lightning (Hey, Viktor!). Most excitingly, Echo will bring back Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk aka Kingpin, and Charlie Cox as Daredevil.
Echo is written by Marion Dayre and is directed by Star Trek: Strange New Worlds‘ Sydney Freehand and Catrina McKenzie of The Walking Dead fame.
Loki season two and Echo are just two of the many Disney+ series on Marvel’s slate. Coming up in mid-2023 is Samuel L. Jackson’s Secret Invasion. Ironheart and Agatha: Coven of Chaos were originally announced for 2023 but have since shifted to debut in 2024.
