Here’s some great news for the fans out there: the Netflix animated series Arcane, which is being produced in partnership with Riot Games, has been given the green light for its sophomore season.
Based on the wildly popular video game League of Legends, the premiere season of the show was dropped over the course of three weeks in November, with Act III dropping over the weekend. Because of its popularity among its strong fan base and new followers, the production for season two is already underway.
Riot Games and Netflix unveiled the renewal during a two-day Undercity Nights event. “Ready yourselves, friends. Season 2 of Arcane is now in production. Where’s a Hexgate when you need one?,” the series official Twitter account posted.
So what should fans expect from the second season of Arcane? Well, voice actors Hailee Steinfeld, Ella Purnell, and Katie Leung are set to reprise their roles in the animated series second season as Vi, Jinx, and Caitlyn Kiramman, respectively. Based on the brief voice teaser, it seems that the second season’s story will center on Vi and Caitlyn hunting down Jinx.
For now, there is no official announcement in relation to the other cast members. However, there is strong reason to believe that Jayce (Kevin Alejandro), Viktor (Harry Lloyd), Heimerdinger (Mick Wingert), and Mel (Toks Olagundoye), among others, will return as well.
Arcane is Riot Games’ first endeavor in television shows. It is set in the utopian region of League of Legends realms Piltover and the oppressed undercity of Zaun.
Animated by Fortiche Productions, the series follows the origins of popular League champions sisters Jinx and Vi as they seek to reunite with each other. Overcoming the world of Arcane is a dark power that brings on violence and chaos, and threatens to keep the sisters apart.
While there’s no official release date for season two, the full first season of Arcane is now streaming on Netflix.
