Loki: How many episodes are of Loki series and when will the finale air
Loki, the third MCU series on Disney+hotstar in Phase 4, will take after where The Falcon and the Winter Soldier left
As far as the number of Loki episodes goes, it looks like the series will going to be more on par with The Falcon and the Winter Soldier than WandaVision. Due to COVID-19, Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which was originally going to kick off with Black Widow, had to be rearranged. The updated schedule makes Loki the third entry in Phase 4, and it might be Marvel’s biggest Disney+ debut so far.
Loki will follow the events of Avengers: Endgame and the God of Mischief is arrested by the Time Variance Authority, an organization that oversees the timelines in the Multiverse in the series. Loki created a disturbance within the timeline with his escape in Endgame, therefore the TVA is forcing him to travel on a journey to line everything straight again. The series will show Tom Hiddleston returning because the God of Mischief has cropped up throughout human history and influence historical events. For instance, trailers have already shown Loki appearing within the past as D.B. Cooper or seemingly showing up at Pompeii.
Like The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki is slated to be run for 6 episodes. Every episode will be of 40-50 minutes. The series was originally scheduled to debut on Friday, June 11, but Marvel announced in a promo (via YouTube) featuring Hiddleston in May that it would be moved up two days for a debut on Wednesday, June 9. Episodes will debut every Wednesday for six weeks throughout the show’s run. The Loki finale will be debut on Wednesday, July 14 as per the current schedule.
The previous two Phase 4 Disney+hotstar entries, WandaVision and Falcon and the Winter Soldier, both had weekly Friday releases so the move to release the episodes on Wednesdays is a shift for the MCU. Black Widow, the MCU’s return to theaters since the pandemic, is currently set for a July 9 debut. If Loki had stayed on Fridays, the projects would likely compete with one another. The move to Wednesday allows the penultimate episode of Loki to debut two days before Black Widow will give enough space for both to succeed.
