Disney+ has been on a roll since its debut in 2019, aided by the plethora of television series under the Star Wars and Marvel Cinematic Universe umbrellas. Beginning with the miniseries WandaVision, the streaming platform has become known by many fans of Marvel’s output to be the go-to place to watch original shows featuring many of Marvel’s famous faces. One of those shows is Loki, which was quickly renewed for season two after the show’s first season was still dropping new episodes in 2021. With many rumors flying around about who will return for the upcoming Loki season 2, there has now been confirmation about an actor reprising their role.
According to Screen Rant, Miss Minutes from season one of Loki will be back for another go in season 2. The news has been confirmed by the Canadian-American actor Tara Strong who provides the voice of Miss Minutes. Starting in the series’ pilot episode, Strong portrayed the animated mascot shaped as a clock of the Time Variance Authority. Fit with a southern accent and charming personality, Miss Minutes introduced the Time Variance Authority to both Loki and the audience while remaining loyal to He Who Remains, aka Kang the Conqueror, played by Jonathan Majors.

Production on Loki is still ongoing, with the second season not set to be released until sometime in 2023.
