‘Arcane’ Netflix has renewed the show for a second season.
Netflix and Riot Games have announced that a season 2 of “Arcane,” the streaming service’s renowned “League of Legends”-based animated series, is underway. On Saturday evening, the two firms made the news at the conclusion of a fan gathering.
In a statement, series co-creators Christian Linke and Alex Yee said, “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.”
While specifics regarding season 2 of the show are still few, Katie Leung, Ella Purnell, and Hailee Steinfeld have all been confirmed to reprise their roles as Vi, Jinx, and Caitlyn Kiramman, respectively. The second season of “Arcane” will be produced by Marc Merrill, Jane Chung, Linke, Brandon Beck, and Thomas Vu. The release date for the show has yet to be determined.
The first season of “Arcane” aired on Netflix on November 6. The show was divided into three different parts, each of which included three episodes. Riot Games has not announced any other projects, but the animated series, which mixes hand-drawn and computer-generated graphic techniques, is the company’s first foray into cinema and television production.
“Arcane” is situated in the setting of “League of Legends,” and serves as a precursor to the massively successful huge online combat arena game initially released by Riot Games in 2009. “League” has rapidly evolved to be one of the most popular well-known esports titles. Riot Games was founded by Beck and Merrill, and is presently led by CEO Nicolo Laurent. The company employs about 2,500 people around the globe.
