After a hit first season that brought viewers deep into the twisty world of the Time Variance Authority, Loki season two debuted last week to great numbers on Disney+.
The premiere of Loki season two is the second-most viewed season premiere on Disney+ in 2023. Loki — which stars Tom Hiddleston as the sly God of Mischief — notched 10.9 million views globally after three days streaming on Disney+. A view is defined as total stream time divided by runtime.
The Marvel Studios series was not just popular with viewers, but also critics. Loki season two holds an 88% score on review site Rotten Tomatoes, which makes it certified fresh. That goes along with a stellar 94% audience score on the site.
Since appearing in 2011’s Thor, Loki has become one of the most beloved characters in the entire Marvel Universe. He has starred in major blockbusters like 2012’s The Avengers, has a popular merchandise collection on shopDisney.com, and can be found walking around Avengers Campus at Disney’s California Adventure.
But Marvel Studios says Loki is just getting started on Disney+ with plenty of excitement to come.
“Everybody’s playing at the highest level,” Kevin Wright — the executive producer of Loki — said last week. “It’s just exciting to dive deeper into a world that we know people are already excited about.”
Loki is now streaming on Disney+ with new episodes premiering on Thursdays at 6 p.m. PT/9 p.m. ET.
Loki season two 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.
Along with Mobius, Hunter B-15 and a team of new and returning characters, Loki navigates an ever-expanding and increasingly dangerous multiverse in search of Sylvie, Judge Renslayer, Miss Minutes and the truth of what it means to possess free will and glorious purpose.
