The series, which has Tom Hiddleston in the titular role, is based on the events of Avengers: Endgame when the Avengers go to the past and inadvertently end up letting a version of Loki escape. The show follows Thor’s unruly brother as he pops up throughout time as an unlikely influencer of historical events.
