If any of these glowing reactions are any indication of how great the show truly is, then fans are in a for a real treat.
Loki features Tom Hiddleston, returning once more as the God of Mischief, and follows him as he steps out of his brother’s shadow after the events of Avengers: Endgame.
The exact premise of the series is as follows:
After stealing the Tesseract during the events of Avengers: Endgame (2019), an alternate version of Loki is brought to the mysterious Time Variance Authority (TVA), a bureaucratic organization that exists outside of time and space and monitors the timeline. They give Loki a choice: face being erased from existence due to being a “time variant”, or help fix the timeline and stop a greater threat. Loki ends up trapped in his own crime thriller, traveling through time and altering human history.
Hiddleston is joined by Owen Wilson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Sophia Di Martino, Wunmi Mosaku and Richard E. Grant. Kate Herron directs Loki, while Michael Waldron is head writer.
