Loki Season 2 debuted last Thursday (October 5) on Disney+, and within three days on the platform, has tallied 10.9 million views, making it the second most-watched premiere in 2023, trailing behind The Mandalorian Season 3.
Until quite recently, Disney decided to reveal the viewership figures behind premiere dates – including Ahsoka. In five days, the opener to the Star Wars spin-off launched with 14 million views.
As numbers go, it is impressive, but these were attained over five, not three days, compared to Loki Season 2 (H/T IGN). In 2022, the first season of Loki was the most-watched MCU series on Disney+, drawing in 5.23 billion minutes (averaging 872 million minutes an episode).
Loki Season 1 reached a dramatic conclusion after the God of Mischief and Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino) travelled to the end of time. Together, they confronted the mastermind behind the TVA, He Who Remains (Jonathan Majors), a Kang variant.
The culprit of a massive multiversal war, Loki and Sylvie are faced with an ultimatum to either overthrow him as head of the TVA and monitor one timeline or kill him and permit a multiverse of Kangs to rise instead. After Sylvie kills He Who Remains, Loki is returned to an alternate universe of the TVA.
Loki 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 (who plays O.B, a tech wizard at the TVA), and Owen Wilson.
