We're already halfway through Loki season 2, and things are certainly hotting up as the God of Mischief (Tom Hiddleston) and Mobius (Owen Wilson) continue on their mission to save the multiverse from the villainous Kang the Conqueror.


The duo are also joined by Sophia Di Martino's Sylvie once again in season 2, while newcomers to the cast include Indiana Jones star Ke Huy Quan's new character, OB.

Fortunately, Loki's journey might not be over after season 2, with producer Kevin Wright previously teasing an "open-ended" finale and a potential further instalment.

But for now, read on for everything you need to know about the cast of Loki season 2.

Loki season 2 cast: Full list of characters

Who is Kang The Conqueror/He Who Remains? In the comic books, Kang the Conquerer and He Who Remains are two separate characters, the former being a time-travelling villain and the latter the founder of the TVA. In the MCU, they have been merged into one entity, who reveals his backstory in a conversation with Loki and Sylvie.

Kang states that he was a scientist in the 31st century who discovered the multiverse and soon made contact with alternate versions of himself.

At first, they were peaceful, sharing inventions and breakthroughs, but later they began to fight for supremacy over existence.

This is the multiversal war that the TVA's Miss Minutes once referred to, with Kang revealing that it almost led to the destruction of everything, driving him to begin pruning the MCU into one Sacred Timeline. He created the fictional Time-Keepers to keep the TVA staff compliant in carrying out his will.

Sylvie killed Kang at the end of Loki episode six, but he warns her that doing so will unleash a multiverse of madness, with even more evil and dangerous variants of himself sure to emerge out of the chaos.

Season 2 is set to feature a new variant of Kang, who we have previously only seen in the post-credits scene of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania - Victor Timely.

What else has Jonathan Majors been in? Majors has previously starred in films such as Da 5 Bloods, The Harder They Fall and Creed III, as well as HBO's dark fantasy series Lovecraft Country.

Tom Hiddleston plays Loki

Who is Loki? Loki is the God of Mischief, an ancient and devious soul who always puts one person first: himself. He first appeared in the MCU in 2011's Thor, introduced as a friend to his brother Thor before later revealing his darker side. Loki re-emerged in The Avengers, leading an invasion of New York with an alien force loaned to him by Thanos, but slowly trod a redemptive path leading up to his noble sacrifice in Infinity War.

This alternate version of Loki was created after the Avengers travelled back in time during the events of Endgame, as their intervention allowed the trickster to slip away and cheat death – but this put him on the radar of a mysterious organisation known as the Time Variance Authority. They are responsible for keeping the MCU's Sacred Timeline running smoothly and weren't too pleased by Loki's actions, as they had sparked a "nexus event" that threatened to create a multiverse.

The God of Mischief was apprehended by the TVA in episode 1 and suffered a rude awakening when he learned that his once formidable powers were completely useless while in the organisation's headquarters. Loki took an emotional look at the future he could have had – including his brutal death at the hands of Thanos – which went a long way to stamping out his rebellious streak. In later episodes, we saw a softer side to the character as he fell in love with one of his very own variants: the enchantress known as Sylvie.

But, after they disagreed with how best to deal with puppet-master He Who Remains, she sent him back to the TVA Headquarters and left him there stranded. Her actions at the end of time seem to have had immediate consequences, as Loki was shocked to discover his former allies Agent Mobius and Hunter B-15 had no recollection of who he is.

What else has Tom Hiddleston been in? Outside of his Marvel work, Hiddleston is known for BBC thriller The Night Manager, The Hollow Crown, Kenneth Branagh's Wallander and The Essex Serpent. On the big screen, he has had major roles in Crimson Peak, Kong: Skull Island and High-Rise.

We asked a panel of pop-culture enthusiasts to share their thoughts on the MCU. Watch the full Marvel versus DC debate show now.

Who is Mobius M Mobius? Mobius is an experienced agent of the Time Variance Authority, who is used to investigating some of the organisation's most dangerous cases. He took a special interest in 2012's Loki variant as several teams of his elite minutemen had been picked off by another version of Loki, the female variant known as Sylvie. Mobius hoped that having a Loki on their team would help them to better understand their enemy, but got more than he bargained for when the trickster uncovered the dark secret behind the TVA.

It was revealed that all staff members at the organisation – including Mobius himself – were once variants plucked from happy lives in their own times to be drones for the bureaucratic dystopia. Fearing he knew too much, Judge Ravonna Renslayer "pruned" the agent, sending him to the end of time, where she was certain he'd never return from. But after getting his hand on a TemPad, Mobius returned to the TVA and freed Hunter B-15.

Together, they set about educating the organisation's employees and seemed remarkably content watching the Sacred Timeline spiral into chaos. That is, until the final scene, when they appeared to have reverted to their original state from the start of the series – only this time, they had no idea who Loki is.

What else has Owen Wilson been in? Wilson is best known for his comedy work, having starred in numerous hit films including Zoolander, Starsky & Hutch and Wedding Crashers. He has also had more dramatic roles in Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris and Wes Anderson's The Royal Tenenbaums, while you might also recognise his voice as Lightning McQueen in Pixar's Cars franchise.

Sophia Di Martino plays Sylvie/Lady Loki

Who is Sylvie? Sylvie is the only female Loki variant, who was targeted for pruning by the TVA as a young child. She escaped their clutches but had to live her entire life on the run, instilling in her a bitter vendetta against the mysterious organisation and a drive to bring it down. She very nearly succeeded early in season 1 after detonating several nexus events across the Sacred Timeline, but ultimately the TVA was able to regain control.

So dedicated to her mission and to newfound friend Loki, she pruned herself so that she could rescue him at the end of time and find out who has been pulling the strings of the MCU. But their whirlwind romance would end in heartbreak for Loki, when Sylvie banished him back to the TVA Headquarters to take her revenge on He Who Remains (AKA Kang The Conqueror).

What else has Sophia Di Martino been in? Di Martino began her career on British TV, with roles in big-name shows such as Casualty, Mount Pleasant and Flowers. Comedy fans might also remember her guest appearance as Adam's girlfriend Emma on Friday Night Dinner, or for her roles in Click & Collect and Peacock. On the big screen, she played Carol in Beatles-themed romcom Yesterday and played Judith in The Electrical Life of Louis Wain.

Ke Huy Quan plays Ouroboros/OB

Who is Ouroboros/OB? Ouroboros, also known as OB, is a TVA agent who works in the repairs and advancement department. His job is to design, fix or keep running every piece of tech at the TVA. He first appears in season 2, when Loki and Mobius visit him to get advice on Loki's 'time-slipping'.

What else has Ke Huy Quan been in? Quan first broke into Hollywood as a child star, known for playing Short Round in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and Data in The Goonies. He also appeared in the series Head of the Class, but subsequently took a 19-year acting hiatus. Since returning, he has had roles in Finding 'Ohana, American Born Chinese and Everything Everywhere All at Once, for which he won an Oscar.

Wunmi Mosaku plays Hunter B-15

Who is Hunter B-15? Hunter B-15 is a high-ranking operative for the TVA who tracked Loki down following his time-hopping escape in Avengers: Endgame. She was keen to see Loki get "reset" but the idea was nixed by Agent Mobius, who insisted on trying to get through to the Asgardian instead. Her once hardline outlook is shattered after she is enchanted by Sylvie, an experience which shows her a past life in which she was happy and fulfilled – before being abducted and brainwashed by the TVA.

She helped Loki and Sylvie expose the fraudulent Time-Keepers but was imprisoned by Judge Renslayer for doing so. When Agent Mobius returned, he freed her and she exposed the TVA to her former colleagues by showing them that even their top boss is simply a variant. But, when we last saw her in Loki season 1, she appeared to have reverted to her original state, expressing concern over the nexus events bombarding the Sacred Timeline.

What else has Wunmi Mosaku been in? Mosaku has had roles in series including Silent Witness, Vera, In the Flesh, The End of the F***ing World, Luther, Temple, Lovecraft Country and Black Mirror, while her film appearances have included roles in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, His House and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw plays Ravonna Renslayer

Who is Ravonna Renslayer? Renslayer is a former hunter of the TVA who went on to hold one of the organisation's most senior positions, being a judge deciding the fate of time criminals. Her sentencing of Loki was interrupted by Agent Mobius, who insisted he be kept alive to help on a tricky case. Renslayer reluctantly agreed, but her patience for the unpredictable duo wore down considerably, leading her to prune them both.

When Mobius returned to the TVA in Loki episode 6, the two had one more emotional conversation as their friendship fell apart, with both feeling equally betrayed by the other. Notably, Renslayer had an opportunity to prune Mobius (for the second time) but decided not to, choosing instead to go on a journey seeking free will and the real person behind the TVA - Kang.

What else has Gugu Mbatha-Raw been in? Mbatha-Raw began her screen career in Doctor Who, where she played Tish, the sister of Time Lord companion Martha Jones. Later television projects have included iconic Black Mirror episode San Junipero, The Girl Before and Apple TV+ dramas The Morning Show and Surface. On the big screen, her biggest gigs include Disney's live-action Beauty and the Beast, A Wrinkle in Time, Motherless Brooklyn and The Cloverfield Paradox.

Who is Casey? Casey is a low-level employee at the Time Variance Authority, who is seen to be relatively dim-witted and submissive in the first episode. He is amused by powerful objects like the Tesseract and the Infinity Stones as they hold no power in the TVA, remarking that they are often used as paperweights.

What else has Eugene Cordero been in? Cordero has a background in comedy, with past projects including Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, The Good Place and Star Trek: Lower Decks. He has previously worked alongside Hiddleston in 2016 blockbuster Kong: Skull Island.
