“We’re beyond happy about the positive response to Arcane’s first season and are working hard with the creative wizards at Riot and Fortiche to deliver our second installment,” said Arcane co-creators Christian Linke and Alex Yee.
Created by Christian Linke and Alex Yee, the series is executive produced by Linke, Marc Merrill, Brandon Beck, Jane Chung, and Thomas Vu.
Based on the global phenomenon League of Legends franchise, Arcane dives into the delicate balance between the rich city of Piltover and the seedy underbelly of Zaun.
Tensions between these city-states boil over with the creation of hextech — a way for any person to control magical energy — in Piltover; and in Zaun, a new drug called shimmer transforms humans into monsters.
The rivalry between the cities splits families and friends as Arcane brings life to the relationships that shape some of League of Legends‘ famous champions including Vi, Jinx, Caitlyn, Jayce and Viktor.
Based on the world behind the game League of Legends, the animated event series features a complex world filled with moral decisions, breathtaking animation and suspenseful storytelling.
The first season of Arcane features the voices of Hailee Steinfeld (Vi), Ella Purnell (Jinx), Katie Leung (Caitlyn Kiramman), Kevin Alejandro (Jayce), Harry Lloyd (Viktor), Mick Wingert (Heimerdinger), Brett Tucker (Singed), JB Blanc (Vander), and Yuri Lowenthal (Mylo).
Also voicing characters are Roger Craig Smith (Claggor), Shohreh Aghdashloo (Grayson), Remy Hii (Marcus), Toks Olagundoye (Mel Medarda), Jason Spisak (Silco), and Mia Sinclair Jenness (Powder).
The series is directed by Pascal Charrue and Arnaud Delord. The writers are Christian Linke, Alex Yee, Conor Sheehy, Ash Brannon, Nick Luddington, David Dunne, Ben St. John, and Mollie St. John.
