Loki Season 2 Hits Disney Plus This October, Echo To Premiere Full Season In November

Marvel's Disney+ shows have, to this point, mostly been one-off affairs. Loki has thus far been the sole exception, with Loki's return being teased in the standard Marvel Studios style with a post-credits teaser. Now, Loki Season 2 has a premiere date, alongside Echo.

Loki Season 2 will premiere on October 6, 2023, consisting of 6 episodes. The Hawkeye spinoff Echo presents another first for the network, premiering the full series on November 29, just two weeks after Loki ends.

Loki Season 2 will pick up sometime after the first season left off, with Loki (Tom Hiddelston), Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino), and Mobius M. Mobius (Owen Wilson) defying the Time Variance Authority, ruled over by one of the variants of Kang (Jonathan Majors), seen in Loki Season 1 as He Who Remains and in Ant-Man and the Wasp in Quantumania as Kang the Conqueror. Ke Huy Quan (Waymond Wang in Everything Everywhere All at Once) will appear as well.

Echo continues the story of Maya Lopez (Alaqua Cox), the deaf Native American assassin who fought Hawkeye in his 2021 series. According to the official synopsis, Maya "must face her past, reconnect with her Native American roots, and embrace the meaning of family and community." The show will also star Chaske Spencer (Wild Indian), Tantoo Cardinal (Killers of the Flower Moon), Devery Jacobs (Reservation Dogs), Cody Lightning (Hey, Viktor!), Graham Greene (1883), and Zahn McClarnon (Reservation Dogs). Vincent d'Onofrio and Charlie Cox will also appear as Wilson Fisk and Matt Murdock/Daredevil.

As Variety notes, Disney had initially planned to release five live-action titles on the service in 2023, including Loki Season 2, Echo, Secret Invasion, Ironheart, and Agatha: Coven of Chaos. Secret Invasion premieres on June 21, 2023, but Ironheart and Agatha: Coven of Chaos are expected to debut next year.
