The prequel to League of Legends has a lot more to explore
Season one of Netflix’s Arcane just wrapped up, but season 2 has already been announced. The announcement was made by Netflix and League of Legends developers Riot Games during a fan event on Saturday.
Arcane is based on the popular Multiplayer Online Battle Arena game, which was launched in 2009, and is played by millions of players around the world. The company grew exponentially afterwards, and now has more than 2500 employees around the world.
The next plans
League of Legends has some brilliant lore for their champions, and Arcane just proved it. And since season one ended in a cliff-hanger, it was all but natural for the series to continue with future seasons. Alex Yee, one of the show’s creators said that Riot Games had always wanted to let players spend more time with their champions, and not just by playing.
Many people shared in the thoughts, and had spent the last 12 years making adding depth to the characters, and adjusting storylines. Yee said that they’re continuing with Arcane right now, but knows that players will be happy to see stories of other champions living in other regions mentioned in the game.
The story so far
Season one was split into three acts, and primarily focused on the characters Vi and Jinx, who are sisters. Other League characters like Jayce, Caitlyn, Singed, Viktor, and Ekko appeared, and wove a beautiful story about companionship and despair.
Season one ended with Jinx fully embracing the madness within her after she was injected with Shimmer, a liquid that can enhance the body’s strength, while also badly affecting the mind. Her big brawl with Vi is yet to happen, but now that neither of them have any guardian figures looking after them, things could become more messy.
