Disney+ has been aggressively promoting its upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe series Loki as a Wednesday release. But like the “god of mischief” himself, the series’ release time is a bit trickier than that.
“Wednesday’s are the new Fridays,” the Disney+ marketing machine proudly proclaimed last month, when it moved Loki‘s release date up to June 9 from June 11. The streaming service even recruited Loki star Tom Hiddleston himself to inform folks that unlike previous MCU series WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki would air on Wednesdays instead of Fridays.
When to watch Loki on Disney+
Loki releases on Wednesdays at 12 a.m. PT / 3 a.m. ET, starting on June 9 on Disney+. Loki is “streaming tomorrow,” the show’s official Twitter account announced a few hours ago.
But if you want to avoid spoilers when you wake up tomorrow, you might want to check out Loki when it debuts tonight at midnight Pacific Time. For those night owls whose schedules or time zones permit, it might be more accurate to think of Loki as a Tuesday night series.
Joining Tom Hiddleston in Loki are Sophia Di Martino, Owen Wilson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Cailey Fleming, Richard E. Grant, Sasha Lane and Wunmi Mosaku. All episodes are directed by Kate Herron, with Michael Waldron serving as head writer. The series is executive produced by Herron, Kevin Feige, Louis D’ Esposito, Victoria Alonso, and Stephen Broussard.
Loki is currently receiving rave reviews for its first two episodes. There will be six episodes in total, and there are already rumors of a second season. You can watch the trailer for the series here. In the meantime, enjoy Loki Wednesdays (or Tuesday nights), and good luck avoiding spoilers!
