The frost giant adopted by Odin, also known as the God of Mischief, Loki will be paying for his crimes, and this time, against time itself, before the Time Variance Authority, as he messed with it when he unknowingly took the tesseract and escaped with it during the time travel of the Avengers in Endgame to borrow the stone in their effort of blipping everyone snapped by Thanos back to existence.

Lokiwill start where he was last seen: escaping with the Tesseract in Endgame. As explained throughout various films in the MCU, time is not to be disturbed with and whenever you borrow something from a certain point of time, you have to return it where it belongs. When Loki escaped, his actions are bound to alter events from then on.

The official synopsis of the Loki is below:

"Picking up immediately after Loki steals the Tesseract (again), he finds himself called before the Time Variance Authority, a bureaucratic organization that exists outside of time and space, forced to answer for his crimes against the timeline and given a choice: face deletion from reality or assist in catching an even greater threat."

Apprehended by the Time Variance Authority, Loki seems to be resisting some jail time, or this jail is just nothing like he has ever been in throughout his existence. In a comedic and action-packed series, Loki will be paying for his crimes by helping the TVA get through the bumps on their very road in exchange for an extreme consequence pressed on Loki.
