Disney+ Moves Loki’s Release Date To June 9

Next month, Loki will become the third live-action Marvel Studios series on Disney+. However, the new show will no longer debut on Friday June 11. Instead, the new release date will be Wednesday, June 9. New episodes will also follow on Wednesdays instead of Fridays. Presumably that will allow Disney+ to let Star Wars: The Bad Batch remain on Fridays without competition from Marvel’s latest show.

Loki star Tom Hiddleston made the announcement in a new video, which you can watch below.

Owen Wilson will co-star in the series as Mobius M. Mobius, a high ranking member of the Time Variance Authority. Gugu Mbatha-Raw also stars as Ravonna Lexus Renslayer, a TVA judge, with Wunmi Mosaku as Hunter B-15. Additionally, Richard E. Grant, Sophia Di Martino, Sasha Lane, Erika Coleman, and Eugene Cordero have undisclosed roles on the show.

Here’s the official synopsis from Disney+ and Marvel Studios:

“Picking up immediately after Loki steals the Tesseract (again), he finds himself called before the Time Variance Authority, a bureaucratic organization that exists outside of time and space, forced to answer for his crimes against the timeline and given a choice: face deletion from reality or assist in catching an even greater threat.”
