Loki Season 2 Review | Safe for Kids? Parents Guide
Ok, but why is this his Season 2 poster staring into my soul with creepy AI eyes?
Another decade of Loki? Are Marvel fans prepared? With fans screaming for more time with Loki (time, get it?), it’s yet another first for Marvel as 2023 unravels the first Season 2 for a Marvel streaming mini series.
But does the God of Mischief still have his spark? Or should he have been immortalized back in time?
In This Loki Season 2 Review | Safe for Kids?, I’m breaking down the visuals, the story, a full TV-14 age rating explanation for violence, adult themes and language, and what kids’ age recommendation is suggested to watch in this new 2023 Loki parents guide for the first season 2 of a Marvel TV series on Disney+. A no-spoiler parent review of Loki Season 2, does this new season hold up to the original vibe? Or will fans heads be spinning in a time warp?
Hello, multiverse! While I’m still loving the vibe of the TVA being stuck in the 70’s, I do love the new landscapes introduced into season 2. Nothing overly shocking or wow-ing yet. But ouch for new CGI moves that Loki has to endure.
Photosensitivity Warning. For viewers prone to epilepsy and photosensitivity, episode one is intense with bright lights and light flashes throughout the episode that could be triggering. Watch with caution. Mild flickering lights in episode 2. Mild electric shock like flashes in episode 3. Multiple scenes of bright flashing lights in episode 4.
Tom Hiddleston (“Thor: Ragnarok“) is back! The God of Mischief reprises his title role in an all-new 2023 season 2 of this beloved Marvel mini series. Loki Season 2 is under new direction this year, with Justin Benson & Aaron Moorhead (“Moon Knight“), Dan DeLeeuw (“Avengers: Infinity War“) and Kasra Farahani (“Star Trek Into Darkness“) taking the helm. Joined by returning favorite characters including Owen Wilson (“Wedding Crashers“) as Mobius, Gugu Mbatha-Raw (“Beauty and the Beast“) as Judge Ravonna Renslayer, Wunmi Mosaku (“Alice, Darling“) as Hunter B-15, Jonathan Majors (“Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania“) as Kang, and Sophia Di Martino (“Yesterday“) as Sylvie and alongside new cast members including Ke Huy Quan (“American Born Chinese“) as Ouroboros, aka O.B.
The story picks up after the finale of Loki Season 1, with Loki on his quest to find Sylvie, navigate the dizzying multiverse and fully understand his glorious purpose. But with new directors and a new direction for the season, how does new hold up against the original?
It’s chaotic, for sure. Peeling bake layers of the multiverse and trying to understand time in between Loki hair flips – it feels like the universe is out of balance. But thankfully, the heart of the original show remains – Loki’s own inner battle between good and evil, his love for hearing himself talk, and his bro-mance with Mobius. But only time will tell if Loki season 2 can withstand an audience with super hero fatigue.
Loki Season 2 TV-14 Rating Explained
Is Loki Season 2 safe for kids? With Moon Knight’s director at the helm, this could mean a darker TV age rating for kids. Does season 2 of Loki hold up on the original TV-14 rating for a Marvel show? Or should parents be concerned?
It’s no secret that I am highly skeptical of all MPAA ratings (um hello, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker not disclosing any language??). And as we know, not all movie and TV age ratings are the same. As a parent, it’s been rather heartbreaking to witness how ratings have shifted over the years with a G-rating no longer an option.
PG ratings now oscillating between Turning Red intense to Christopher Robin calm, and even PG-13/TV-14 age ratings teetering on the edge of R or MA ratings (Moon Knight and Werewolf by Night, I see you!), there’s a wide range between the age of 0-14 years old for parents to consider. Having fully disclosed parent guidelines can help determine if a movie or show is kid friendly – and safe for the whole family to watch together.
Why is Loki Season 2 rated TV-14? In this Loki Season 2 Review | Safe for Kids?, this 6-episode Marvel series streaming show is rated TV-14 for “language and intense violence.” With film and TV ratings also unpredictable these days, having fully disclosed parent guidelines can help determine if a movie or television show like Loki is kid friendly. Is Loki Season 2 too scary for kids? Is Loki Season 2 too intense for kids? Let’s breakdown that TV-14 age rating in this Loki Season 2 parents guide.
*Please note that this Loki Season 2 series review and TV-14 age rating breakdown are for episode 1, 2, 3, and 4 only. I will update this post with reviews of future episodes below as episodes are released.
Violence/Suspense. Marvel level of violence so far, what you’d expect from a Marvel show or movie. There is mild suspenseful jump scares. And Loki’s new “trick” along with noises may be a little squeamish for young Marvel fans. Mild gore in episode 3.
Adult Themes. Season 2 opens up with a good amount of chaos, but not heavy on the adult themes. At least not yet.
Episode 3 introduces alcohol consumption, particularly beer.
Language. Despite episode 1 labeled as violence only, not too surprisingly there are a few choice foul language and swear words phrases thrown in, but still on par with season 1. Bad language includes 2 “d-mn it” and 2 “H-E-double-hockey-stick” uses. Episode 2 includes “@sshole,” 4 “sh-t,” 1 “bullsh-t,” and 2 “H-E-double-hockey-stick” uses. Episode 3 only has 1 “d@mn” reference.
Milder insults and bad language words and phrases include “freaking me out,” “oh g-d,” and “loser,” and one reference to “the devil.”
Episode 5 Update | 46 minutes – One scene with bright flashing lights and spinning visuals. May be triggering for some. Violence is minimum, some grunting noises – but on par with what we have seen of Loki this season. The story gets even weirder. So be prepared to have more questions than answers. Adult themes limited to drinking alcohol shots at a bar. No swear words. Multiple “g-d” verbal references. No post credits scene for episode 5.
Episode 6 Finale Update | 56 minutes – Not going to lie, that was a pretty satisfying finale episode. Assuming Marvel isn’t going to tamper with a perfectly good ending (aka $$$$ grab), then I can appreciate the other wonky episodes to watch this one. Violence is on par – but a few disturbing sounds may haunt your timeline. Language is overall minimal, 1 “sh!t,” a few “oh my g-d,” and 1 “Christ.” Overall, Loki Season 2 is the most satisfying ending for a Marvel character ever.
Loki Season 2 Age Rating for Kids
With Loki Season 2 episode runtime of 45 – 53 minutes respectively, this series highly depends on your child’s love for the God of Mischief and the OG Marvel Avengers superheroes. So far, the new season does seem to fall within the Loki Season 1 confines of being OK for kids.
The first Season 2 for a Marvel streaming series has 6 episodes for 2023.
Marvel’s second season of Loki is most comparable to the Avengers movies and the Thor films, and of course season one of Loki. The addition of Ke Huy Quan gives this time warp hints of Everything Everywhere All At Once.
Season 2 of the 2023 Marvel television series is rated TV-14 for “language and intense violence.“
Episode 1 season 2 does have one post credits scene so far. So don’t be quick to turn off your television.
Based on my Loki Season 2 parents guide and mom review above, I recommend Marvel’s Loki Season 2 show for kids aged 9-years and up.
Considering the full TV-14 rating breakdown above, this parent movie reviewer would not recommend Loki Season 2 to kids younger than the age of 9-years old. This Loki Season 2 rating is pretty spot on and easily comparable to Loki Season 1, staying true to it’s original roots.
Overall, heavy adult dialogue but less intense violence, Loki Season 2 continues to appeal more to the older audiences than little kids. Especially with a confusing multiverse, TVA and Marvel timeline, it could get boring and hard to keep up with the chaos and confusion.
Chaos theory? Loki season 2 is worth your time. As long as the bro-mance, the one liners and the heart of Loki remain the same, I’m invested. But then we added Ke Huy Quan – I mean, could I ask for more? Hopefully new directors won’t mess up the delicate balance and fan base for this show. As the first season 2 Marvel show – there’s a lot riding on whether these mini series could be more than just fun little time tangents.
