During the event 2024 Tencent Video V Video Conference It was reported that the second season of the series was animated Arcana Its premiere is scheduled for sometime in the fourth quarter of 2024 (October-December). Based on fan feedback, the premiere is expected to take place in November 2024, coinciding with the first season window and fifteenth anniversary League of Legends.
In total, we will have to wait three years for the second season of Arcane. It has been a long time, but Riot Games, the developer of the video game, made it clear that despite the success of the first installment, it would not rush to release a sequel. In fact, it was not until today that there is official information about this continuity.
Arcane is one of the many animated adaptations of video games that achieved incredible success thanks to a high level of production. The first season of Arcane took the cake and almost every international award it was nominated for, attracting attention even from people who have never played a game in their life. League of Legendsthe video game that inspires the story.
When the first season ended, the second was announced shortly after, leaving fans quite happy. However, the continuation was not in the plans of the production team, which did not expect the adaptation to be very successful. Riot Games CEO Nicolo Laurent stated this during the short segment of the interview:
- «I just watched the third episode of the second season before my flight, so we’re making progress on it. It is not ready yet and there are two reasons for it. One, we want quality. We don’t just want to rush. We honestly didn’t know if the first season would be successful. […] If we had known, we could have started the second season much earlier. But we didn’t know, so we waited a bit. Now we are paying the price. So, unfortunately, it will not be released this year.».
The story takes place in the cities of Piltover and Zaun. Although Arcane only focuses on these two cities, they belong to the world of Runeterra. Piltover is the academic, scientific and rich city, and Zaun is the opposite, with suburbs full of crime, poverty and infested with poisonous chemicals, where there is no authority whatsoever. The tension and rivalry between these two cities divides families and friends, as in the case of Vi and Powder, two Zaunite sisters; or Jayce and Viktor, two inventor friends and apprentices of the legendary scientist Heimerdinger. All these relationships will overflow with the creation of Hextech in Piltover, a technology that anyone can control magical energy, and in Zaun a new drug turns people into monsters.
