'Loki' Season 2 trailer reveals the god of mischief skipping through timelines

"Loki," Disney+'s Marvel Cinematic Universe solo spinoff, had its fair share of admirers for its six-episode debut season that ended in July of 2021. Apparently the House of Mouse and Marvel Studios heartily agreed and greenlit a second season that is now slated to start airing exclusively on Disney+ on Oct. 6, 2023.

Marvel Entertainment just dropped an new action-injected trailer for "Loki" Season 2 that finds Tom Hiddleston's trickster superhero time-skipping his way around the universe, stuck in a maddening cycle of temporal leaps between past and present. 

Here we see Hiddleston back to inhabit the title role as the Asgardian God of Mischief alongside Owen Wilson's Mobius M. Mobius and a kooky new Time Variance employee played by Ke Huy Quan ("Everything Everywhere All At Once"). There's even a flash of Jonathan Majors' He Who Remains, a Kang the Conqueror variant.

"Loki's" narrative rolls out after the events seen in "Avengers: Endgame," and centers around the antihero's gig with the Time Variance Authority to hunt nefarious superhero iterations causing mayhem in alternate timelines of the multiverse.
