Disney+ Series Loki Will Air On Wednesdays Starting June 9

"Wednesdays are the new Fridays," according to Loki himself.


Marvel has released a video announcement with Tom Hiddleston letting fans know that Loki will now premiere on June 9, and air on subsequent Wednesdays over the course of its premiere season--instead of June 11 and Fridays, as was expected until this official message. Or, as Hiddleston declares: "Wednesdays are the new Fridays."

Hiddleston reprises his role as Loki from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, sharing some continuity with the films of the franchise, but actually taking place in an alternate universe. Picking up after the events of Avengers: Endgame, Loki features "the God of Mischief as he steps out of his brother's shadow" as he escapes with the Tesseract and in the hands of the Time Variance Authority. The TVA is an organization from the far future that monitors and polices time and the multiverse--in this series, Loki works for the TVA to atone for his own time and space crimes against, well, time and space itself.

The above video is full of crucial information about how you can watch Loki soon, but fans can also check out a sizzle reel that was released back in December. The trailer also features Owen Wilson as Mobius M. Mobius, a high-profile employee of the TVA--note that this character has nothing to do with Morbius the Living Vampire, whose movie was just delayed to late January 2022. In addition to Hiddleston and Wilson, the series will include Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Sophia Di Martino, Wunmi Mosaku, and Richard E. Grant.

Loki's first season will consist of six episodes and will be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Phase Four. A second season is reportedly already in development.
