However, when will Arcane Season 2 be released on Netflix? Who will star in it, and what will happen in Season 2?
Before we get into all of that, let’s explore what happened and what was said about Arcane: League Of Legends Season 2.
Netflix and Riot Games recently confirmed that a second season of the League of Legends-based animated series is officially on the way.
The two companies made the announcement at the conclusion of a fan event on Saturday evening.
Here’s what the show’s co-creators Christian Linke and Alex Yee had to say about the renewal:
We’re beyond happy about the positive response to ‘Arcane’s’ first season and are working hard with the creative wizards at Riot and [French animation studio] Fortiche to deliver our second installment.
Arcane: League Of Legends Season 2 is in the works
Riot Games are a video game company at heart, but this Arcane series is their first foray into the world of film and television content.
They don’t have any other TV projects announced for the immediate future, however, the animated series, which combines both hand-drawn and CG art styles, is a pretty impressive first attempt.
I’ll be very interested in seeing what they do next with regards to their film and television content.
When will Arcane Season 2 be released?
Now, Netflix wasn’t kind enough to give us an official release date for Arcane Season 2.
However, we can come up with what might prove to be a very accurate guess with regards to Arcane Season 2’s release date.
The first season debuted on Netflix on November 6th.
It was was released as three chapters, each consisting of three episodes.
Riot Games recent revealed that the whole production took just over a year to make.
Therefore, you can expect Season 2 to be released around about the same time next year.
So, November 6th, 2022.
What will happen and who will star in Season 2?
So, it’s still not known what’s going to happen in Season 2, but what we do know is that a lot of the voice cast from Season 1 are going to also be in Season 2.
We know that Hailee Steinfeld, Ella Purnell and Katie Leung will be coming back in their respective voice roles of Vi, Jinx and Caitlyn Kiramman.
The second season of Arcane will be executed produced by Christian Linke, alongside Marc Merrill, Brandon Beck, Jane Chung and Thomas Vu.
The show is set in the universe of and serves as a prequel to the hugely popular MMO (massively multiplayer online game), League of Legends.
The game was first released back in 2009 and it’s not one of the major titles in esports.
Riot Games was founded by Beck and Merrill and currently is led by CEO Nicolo Laurent.
The company has more than 2,500 employees worldwide.
