You know it's going to be a good week when the God of Mischief, Loki, starts it off with a record-breaking season premiere. In a successful steal, Loki's season 2 debut on Disney+ became a streaming sensation right from the get-go, clocking in at rocketing viewership numbers just shy of The Mandalorian season 3’s stellar launch.
Imagine it: 10.9 million global viewers tuning in across the first three days of streaming. That’s akin to the entire population of Portugal waiting with bated breath for our favourite anti-hero's adventures! There's no doubt; Loki season 2's debut was as awe-inspiring as the mischievous deity himself.
If you compare it to the previous 'most-watched' record holder from May 2022, Loki seems to have a Midas touch for attracting eyes as well as causing delightful chaos. And why not? After all, who can resist the charm of Marvel's deliciously deceptive rogue?
In this time-twisting season premiere, we are wonderfully entangled once again with the enigmatic Loki, the empathetic Sylvie, the unshakeable Mobius, and the dogged Hunter B-15. 'Where are Kang the Conqueror and Ravonna Renslayer?', you might ask. They remain mysteriously missing in action, with their presence limited to a haunting audio clip.
New to the gang is Ke Huy Quan's O.B., who has quickly become as adored as free Wi-Fi, following his unveiling in the premier episode. The debut also gifted fans with an X-Men Easter egg and an almost-included goodies bag of a crossover with Moon Knight.
But wait, there’s more Marvel goodness to look forward to in this mighty stream-fest! Following the footsteps of Secret Invasion, Loki is the second Marvel-ous (pun intended) show from Disney+ this year. And because all good things come in threes, The Marvels will soon grace our screens on November 10, treating us to a dream team of Carol Danvers, Monica Rambeau, and Kamala Khan.
In the meantime, Loki continues to frolic and cause mayhem weekly on Disney+. For a Loki-dose of extra excitement, here’s a fun list of mischief to explore: check out the release schedules, dissect the Marvel timeline, recap season 1, understand Marvel’s phase 5 and upcoming movies and shows, and much, much more.
So buckle up, and get your snacks ready! With Disney+ serving up piping-hot Loki episodes mixed with a sprinkle of humor, a dash of fantasy, and heaps of thrilling adventures, one can only wonder: who needs Netflix and chill when you've got Disney+ and thrilling Marvel adventures? And now, if you’ll excuse me, there’s a season premiere waiting to be watched for the tenth time – because who can resist the allure of Loki’s brilliant season 2 shenanigans?
