We're more than excited to watch Loki on Disney Plus, as the master of mischief is finally getting his own show. From what we know so far, the Loki TV series is going to be weird and wild, as he's jumping all across time and reality.

Want to know how it is? Check our our Loki episode 1 + 2 review to learn more. We absolutely loved these first two pieces of the puzzle, and think it's on its way to being better than WandaVision.

And while it might look like Loki's being brought to trial for his time-hopping, that read of the series isn't 100% true. This is a variant of Loki, as the original, real Loki was killed by Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War. 

What is a variant, you ask? Well, this is the Loki who got his hands on the Tesseract in Avengers: Endgame, and disappeared through a dark cloud of smoke. Since then, he's been apparently a very naughty god (surprise surprise), upsetting the timelines. 

This bad behavior brings him to the Time Variance Authority, which tries to keep order in the many timelines. 

How to watch Loki on Disney Plus

Loki's looking hard to catch, jumping around timelines, but you can find this show exclusively on Disney Plus. 

The first episode arrives Wednesday, June 9 at 3 a.m. ET, and subsequent episodes will follow at that same time every Wednesday.

Disney Plus

Disney Plus gives you access to the entire Disney vault of classics like Frozen, The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast as well as newer hits like The Mandalorian, Hamilton and more. Get the most value with the $13.99 bundle that throws in Hulu and ESPN Plus.

How to watch Loki internationally

Disney Plus is available in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Mauritius, Monaco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom, so it's not going to be tough to get access.

Loki episodes schedule

The good news is that Loki episodes are long. A tweet from Discussing Film’s Diego Andaluz revealed that they're almost at an hour a piece: episode 1 is 51 minutes and episode 2 is 54 minutes. Of course, if they're anything like the WandaVision and Falcon and Winter, that's going to include 10 minutes or so of credits. 

The bad news? We're only getting 6 episodes in total. If the first two episodes are about average for the season, expect the total run time to go around 5 hours and 15 minutes.
