“Get ready, friends. Season 2 of ‘Arcane’ is currently in production,” they wrote from the Netflix Twitter account a little over a week ago, to the delight of fans of fiction, beyond the legion of followers of the ‘League of Legends’ video game on which the animated series is based and the platform’s last hit on streaming.
“We are beyond happy about the positive response to the first season of ‘Arcane’ and are working hard with creative wizards at Riot Games and Fortiche to develop our second installment,” announced series creators Christian Linke and Alex Yee through a statement.
The The first nine-episode season ended at a fever pitch with Jinx’s ultimate ability deployed and about to wreak havoc. Silco has had his way and the war is about to begin. What will happen from now on in ‘Arcane’, whose season 1 managed to dethrone the famous Korean series ‘The Squid Game’ from its number 1 position on the platform? This is what is known for now.
Yes, as the platform has said, production is already underway It would not be ruled out that we may have new episodes as early as 2022. Other specialized media are not so optimistic, as they remember that season 1 took six years to complete. Taking into account the quality of the series, the conception of the idea, the pre-production, production and other processes of filming and realization, Season 2 may not be seen until 2023. It should also be borne in mind that any eventuality could hinder the creative process. It already happened with the arrival of the covid, more than a year ago, which delayed the launch of the series, scheduled for 2020, until November of this year.
Netflix has not advanced how many chapters the next installment will have, but it is more than likely to follow the same structure and number of episodes, nine. Regarding the form of broadcast, they have been broadcast in three batches of three, between November 6 and November 20, 2021. In the last episode, ‘The Monster You Created‘, Jayce (voiced by Kevin Alejandro) opened a council vote to give Zaun independence. The vote begins, but at that moment, a rocket fired by Jinx (Ella Purnell), still traumatized by killing Silco, crashes into the council building. Therefore, the theme of Zaun’s future independence will surely be one of the themes of the new episodes.
What is known is that Hailee Steinfeld (‘Ender’s Game’) will continue to lend his voice to We, Ella Purnell (‘Miss Peregrine’s Home for Special Children’) will do the same with Jinx, and Katie Leung (‘Harry Potter’ saga) remains as Caitlyn Kiramman.
TRAILER AND FIRST IMAGES
For now, the only clues that have transpired are the ‘teaser’ announcing season 2, but without images of the characters and with so few scenes that you can not advance much of the new story of ‘Arcane’. This time there will be no need to introduce the protagonists, but it is logical that new champions can be introduced: it is rumored that they could be Dr. Mundo o Warwick.
