Hang in there, Loki is getting close now.

Disney Plus

It’s been over two months since the last Marvel series on Disney Plus, but the excruciating wait for the next one is nearly over. The Loki series, starring Tom Hiddleston as everyone’s favorite god of mischief, arrives on Wednesday, June 9 (and early reactions are positive). Find details on how to watch farther down.

That release date is mischievously two days earlier than previously expected, claiming the Wednesday weekly episode spot, instead of Friday, like the other Marvel Disney Plus series. Look forward to six episodes in Loki’s first season, with expected 40 to 50 minute runtimes. In amazing news, a second season is already in development.

What’s Loki about?

The series addresses a timey-wimey issue raised in Avengers: Endgame, when an alternate version of Loki steals the Tesseract and creates a new timeline. Loki ends up in the exquisitely designed organization known as the Time Variance Authority, where the Time Keepers, including Owen Wilson’s Mobius, enlist his help in sorting out the mess he’s left behind.

Rounding out the cast are more members of the Time Variance Authority, including Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Wunmi Mosaku. Sasha Lane, Richard E. Grant, Sophia Di Martino and Erika Coleman also have roles.

How to watch Loki on Disney Plus

To watch the Loki series, you’ll need a subscription to Disney Plus. This costs $8 per month, which is cheaper than Netflix, ad-free Hulu and HBO Max. A few features include no ads, mobile downloads, 4K and HDR. You can get up to four streams and premiere access to new movies like Cruella, although this will cost you an extra $30 on top of the subscription fee. Disney Plus is a hub for Star Wars and Marvel, including upcoming new TV series, like Hawkeye and Ms. Marvel. If you’re still tossing up whether to subscribe, check out our in-depth review here.

The latest teaser

At this point Marvel has probably given us more trailers than there are episodes. The teasers have been been daily, titled Tick, Chance, Team and Path.

What to watch in the meantime

Almost as if this was planned to perfection, Star Wars: The Bad Batch hit Disney Plus on May 4. In other words, another big franchise show has arrived to help bridge the gap between The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Loki. Here’s the full release schedule, with new episodes arriving every Friday.
