Big news for fans of Marvel Studios, trickster-villain Loki, and/or British heartthrob Tom Hiddleston: all three of those things are coming together for Loki, a new series that is a part of Marvel Studios' Phase 4 plan for the Marvel cinematic universe. The prospect of a serial narrative with Loki at its center has Marvel fans all fired up, and it's hard to blame them! But before you can enjoy Loki, you'll need to find out where to stream Loki online. That's where we come in. As always, your pals at Cordcutting.com are here to show you how to watch your favorite stuff online, no cable required.

How to watch Loki online

As you may already know, this list is destined to be a short one. We're living in the era of streaming exclusives, and Loki is very much a part of that world. Disney is launching a huge new streaming service that is built on its major media properties, of which Marvel Studios is arguably the most popular right now. So it's no surprise that you'll have to subscribe to Disney's new streaming service in order to watch Loki — which brings us to the first and only item on our extremely short “list.”

Watch Loki online - Disney+

Disney controls multiple streaming services, including Hulu and ESPN+. But only one Disney-backed streaming service will allow you to stream Loki. That one would be Disney's newest and most exciting streaming service: Disney+. Disney's much-hyped Netflix competitor will arrive on November 12 of this year (2019), and it will be the “forever home” of all of your favorite Marvel Studios content — including some all-new originals. Among those originals will, of course, be Loki.

Loki won't be alone on Disney+ — far from it! Disney+ will launch with several Marvel Studios films and will bring more of those beloved movies home in the months that follow. Also on the way are hotly anticipated original series like Hawkeye and WandaVision. All of this makes Disney+ the best place to stream Marvel movies and TV shows. Marvel fans, take note!

Can I watch Loki on Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV, or Chromecast?

There's nothing too tricky about watching Loki on your favorite streaming devices. Thanks to pretty impressive platform support, you'll almost definitely be able to watch Loki on your device of choice once the show premieres. Let's get into the specifics of Disney+'s platform support.

At launch, Disney+ will offer apps for Roku, Android TV, and Apple TV; plus, some of its other apps will support casting to Google's Chromecast. Conspicuously missing from this list is Amazon's Fire TV platform, but that could well change in the years between Disney+'s launch and Loki's premiere episode — which, as we'll soon see, won't come along until 2021! Given Fire TV's popularity, it wouldn't be at all surprising to see Disney+ get an app for the platform at some point in the future, and the company has lots of time to add Fire TV support before Loki premieres..

Disney+ has you covered on mobile devices, too. You can download a Disney+ mobile app for either iOS or Android.

Disney+ will have a browser, too, which will make it easy for you to stream Loki on your desktop or laptop computer, should you so desire.

Even video game systems are an option for folks who want to watch Loki online: Disney+ will offer apps for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 at launch.

When is the Loki release date?

Fans are thrilled that Loki is coming to Disney+, but they'll have to wait a while before they can enjoy the series. The Loki release date will be sometime in the spring of 2021, about a year and a half after Disney+ launches this fall. That means that Loki won't come out until after Marvel Studios series peers WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. (Marvel Studios' Hawkeye, which will star Jeremy Renner and will also stream exclusively on Disney+, is slated for a fall 2021 release that puts it even further off than Loki.) The good news is that the far-off date and all of the other announcements guarantee that Marvel fans will keep getting brand-new stories featuring their favorite characters for years and years to come.

What will Loki be about?

Thor frenemy and trickster god Loki met an unfortunate end in Avengers: Infinity War, but the wild time-traveling do-over in Avengers: Endgame brought him back into the land of the living. Last we heard from Loki, he had absconded with Space Stone (one of the Infinity Stones). Where he's gone off to, nobody knows.

Tom Hiddleston will star as Loki, reprising the role that he played so well in the Thor and Avengers films. Hiddleston has said that the Loki of the upcoming series will have evolved following the traumatic events of the Avengers films. What Hiddleston means by that isn't totally clear, though, and all involved are mum on the details of the new series. Will Loki be repentant? Will he be angry? Will he feel lost? We'll just have to keep looking out for leaks and rumors between now and the series' big Disney+ debut in all-too-far-away spring 2021.
