Arcane Season 2 Announced By Riot Games
Riot Games’ Arcane animated show did remarkably well and was happily received by both gamers familiar with the League of Legends source material and those just dipping their toes into the franchise. Though it was was pitched as a limited series, the folks behind Arcane made it clear that they were interested in developing more shows within the League of Legends universe. It seems they’re going to get their chance, as Arcane has officially been renewed for a second season.
Riot Games took to social media to announce that Arcane season 2 is now in production. The clip accompanying the reveal is admittedly short on visuals, though the audio cues suggest at least some continuation of the story that began in season 1, and will likely continue to follow the majority of the main characters introduced thus far.
Ready yourselves, friends. Season 2 of Arcane is now in production.

Though Arcane isn’t a movie, it still represents an excellent take on a video game that respects the source material whilst creating something new. As such, this can be viewed as an absolute win for both League of Legends players and gamers in general, as chances are this will inspire Netflix to be a bit more willing to take on projects such as this. The same can of course be said of the streaming platform’s Castlevania series and its upcoming spin-off, though having a newer video game successfully check off the same ‘excellent adaptation’ boxes hits just a bit differently.
