This past Thursday, Disney+ released the first episode of the second season of Marvel’s “Loki”, and today, Disney has announced that the premiere 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 of streaming on Disney+. Disney defines a view as total stream time divided by runtime.
The debut of the Marvel Studios series was behind only the season three premiere of “The Mandalorian,” which hit Disney+ in March.
The Marvel Studios series was not just popular with viewers, but also critics. Season two of “Loki” holds an 88% score on the review site, Rotten Tomatoes, which makes it certified fresh. That goes along with a stellar 94% audience score on the site.
“Loki” Season 2 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.
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 the Avengers Campus at Disney’s California Adventure. But “Loki” is just getting started on Disney+ with plenty of excitement to come.
The first season, along with the first episode of the second season of “Loki”, is now streaming on Disney+, with a new episode premiering on Thursdays at 6 p.m. PT/9 p.m. ET.
This year, Disney has started revealing more details about some of its successes, which might be likely down to potential changes due to the actor’s and writer’s strikes wanting more clarity on what’s a hit on streaming services.
