After a hit first season that brought viewers deep into the twisty world of the Time Variance Authority, Marvel Studios' Loki returned last week with a brand-new season on Disney+. 

The premiere of the second season of Loki 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 streaming on Disney+.

The debut of the Marvel Studios series — which returned last Thursday — 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.

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 Avengers Campus at Disney’s California Adventure.

But Loki is just getting started on Disney+ with plenty of excitement to come.

“Everybody’s playing at the highest level,” Kevin Wright, the executive producer of Loki, said last week. “It’s just exciting to dive deeper into a world that we know people are already excited about.” 

Loki is now streaming on Disney+ with new episodes premiering on Thursdays at 6 p.m. PT/9 p.m. ET.

A view is defined as total stream time divided by runtime.

Loki Season 2 stars Tom Hiddleston, Sophia Di Martino, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Wunmi Mosaku, Eugene Cordero, Rafael Casal, Tara Strong, Kate Dickie, Liz Carr, Neil Ellice, with Jonathan Majors, Ke Huy Quan and Owen Wilson.
 
Justin Benson & Aaron Moorhead, Dan DeLeeuw and Kasra Farahani are the directors for the six-episode series. Kevin Feige, Stephen Broussard, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Brad Winderbaum, Kevin R. Wright, Tom Hiddleston, Justin Benson & Aaron Moorhead, Eric Martin and Michael Waldron are the executive producers, and Trevor Waterson serves as co-executive producer. Eric Martin is the head writer.
