Loki's Eerie Season 2 Trailer Teases a Future Under Kang's Control

The official trailer sees the titular God of Mischief, once again played by Tom Hiddleston, glitching in and out of time as he aims to seemingly prove that the Time Variance Authority is all a fabrication of the evil Kang the Conqueror. In his quest, Loki will need to once again work alongside Agent Mobius (Owen Wilson) and Ke Huy Quan's Ouroboros. Returning characters Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino), Casey (Eugene Cordero) and Ravonna Renslayer (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) all make appearances as does Kang (Jonathan Majors) in the form of a golden mural. Additionally, another variant of Kang known as Nathanial Richards makes an appearance as well.

While details on Loki Season 2's plot remain scarce, the first chapter concluded with a major cliffhanger that sets up the upcoming arc. Having failed to stop Sylvie from assassinating He Who Remains, the guardian of the multiverse, Loki is thrown back through time into a universe where he never encountered the TVA. As he tries to convince them that a great threat is coming to destroy their reality, he realizes that Kang is already in control, setting the stage for the Marvel Cinematic Universe's next major villain.

A number of new faces will be joining Loki on his newest adventures for Season 2. Game of Thrones star Kate Dickie will appear as an antagonist, while Quan -- hot off his Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination for Everything Everywhere All at Once -- was cast in an undisclosed role. Marvel has yet to reveal the nature of his appearance, but rumors claimed Quan will play a character called "Oroborus," or "O-B," who is in charge of technology at the TVA. In mythology, the ouroboros is an image of a snake eating its own tail, meant to symbolize the eternal cycle of life, death and rebirth.

Loki directors Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead have offered only slight nuggets of what fans can expect from Loki Season 2, comparing the series to Moon Knight, which they also directed. "I think the biggest thing about Loki is just that it's actually a lot like Moon Knight, where there's just no reason to do it if it's not going to be something new and fresh," Moorhead said. "So our gloves are off and we get to kind of do whatever we want."

Loki Season 2 is set to premiere on Disney+ on Oct. 6.
