Is Arcane Season 2 happening? A thought that is governing everyone’s minds about the Netflix science fiction which seems to have slowly but surely won hearts. The show focuses on the origin story of two iconic League champions and is set in the utopian Piltover and the oppressed underground of Zaun. We witness sisters Vi and Jinx on opposing sides of a war that is stimulated with twisted ideologies and arcane technology.
With the growing popularity, it was sooner rather than later that we’d hear the positive news from Netflix about the show’s renewal. Netflix and Riot Games have confirmed that the second season of the show, 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 (U.S. Time), reports Variety. “We’re beyond happy about the positive response to the first season of ‘Arcane’ and are working hard with the creative wizards at Riot and [French animation studio] Fortiche to deliver our second instalment,” series co-creators Christian Linke and Alex Yee said in a statement.
Details are still under wraps about the second season of the series, but Hailee Steinfeld, Ella Purnell and Katie Leung have all been confirmed to reprise their respective voice roles of Vi, Jinx and Caitlyn Kiramman. The first season of ‘Arcane’ debuted on Netflix on November 6.
‘Arcane’ is set in the universe and serves as a prequel to ‘League of Legends’, the extremely popular online battle arena game first published by Riot Games in 2009, according to Variety. ‘League’ is one of the major titles in esports. Riot Games was founded by Marc Merrill and Brandon Beck and is led by CEO Nicolo Laurent. The company has more than 2,500 employees worldwide.
