Arcane Creators May Develop More League Of Legends-Based Shows
Netflix’s newly released Arcane animated series has proven that Riot Games’ League of Legends translates exceptionally well through other mediums. Only the first three episodes that make up Act 1 of the show have been released thus far, though fans of the popular MOBA are earnestly awaiting the arrival of the two subsequent Acts to find out what happens to the beloved characters. While there are only 6 episodes left to be released, the creators behind Arcane seem interested in making more League of Legends-based shows, should there be enough of a desire for it.

Speaking to Comicbook prior to the release of Arcane, its co-creators and executive producers Christian Linke and Alex Yee spoke about the show and the potential for creating more League of Legends-based series in the future. “I think the company has always wanted to allow players to get to spend time with their champions, not in the throws of combat, and get to understand who they are when they’re off the battlefield,” said Yee. “And so many people over time have really poured a lot of love and energy into making the world and the characters feel robust and three-dimensional. So I think there is certainly the appetite to explore more of those stories.”
Like you said, of course, we’re primarily focused on Arcane and learning what we can from that right now, but I think everyone would be really happy to be able to share more stories in many different types of media for other champions in other regions.”
Unfortunately Riot has yet to announce any future projects in the same creative vein as Arcane, though the show’s success could very easily pave the way for similar projects. In the meantime, those that play League of Legends can look forward to the Arcane crossover content rolling out in the next few weeks.
