Spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame ahead
When Disney+ launches later this year, it'll be home to several new Marvel TV shows, including a series starring everyone's favorite God of Mischief.
The good news is Tom Hiddleston will reprise his role as Loki in a show that will apparently find the trickster influencing historical events.
The last time we saw Lokie, he got his hands on the Tessract in Avengers: Endgame before disappearing into thin air. Where he went is still unclear.
All the big details
Loki TV show release date
No release date has been set for Marvel's Loki TV series, though we do know it'll be available within the first year on Disney+.
Incidentally, Disney+ will also be home to other Marvel TV shows, including The Falcon and The Winter Soldier and WandaVision.
Loki TV show cast
As far as we know, only Tom Hiddleston is confirmed to return as the titular character Loki. Whether other characters who have close ties to Loki, such as Thor, will appear in the show remains to be seen.

Loki TV show plot
An official plot hasn't been revealed by Marvel. However, rumors have been floating around about the show chronicling Loki's influence over major historical events, kind of like Forrest Gump.
Which events Loki will be involved with are unclear. Apparently, the show's pilot is being written by Rick & Morty's Michael Waldron, who should know a thing or two about humor and complex narratives.
Will the Loki TV show affect the MCU?
Although Marvel hasn't revealed an official plot, we have an idea of what could happen. In Avengers: Endgame, Loki briefly shows up at the Battle of New York, when Tony Stark and Steve Rogers travel back in time.
When their plan to acquire the Tesseract goes south, Loki gets his hands on the cube and disappears—but where (and when) he goes is unclear. If the time travel theory plays out, we could see him show up at significant events throughout human history.
Marvel has made it crystal clear that the show will directly influence the MCU
Our question is which events will he try to influence? And will anyone from the Avengers attempt to stop him?
At the end of Avengers: Endgame, nobody seemed all that concerned with Loki once again acquiring the Tesseract. Remember, this is the evil version of Loki who wanted to subjugate mankind. You know, before he became a hero at the end of Thor: Ragnarok.
If an evil Loki is traveling through time, you can count on him being up to no good and possibly try to put himself in power. It looks like Thor will be busy with the Guardians, so who will try to stop the God of Mischief from wreaking havoc?
