During Geeked Week 2023, Netflix Revealed the Release Date for Arcane Season 2
The Netflix original series Arcane: League of Legends took the animated and cinematic world by storm with its release in November 2021. Now, over two years after its iconic release, Netflix has announced Season 2 will drop in November of 2024.
Arcane follows sisters Jinx, voiced by Ella Purnell, and Vi, voiced by Hailee Steinfeld, as they find themselves at odds amongst the rising tensions between utopia Piltover and the Undercity, or Zaun, over arcane technologies and controversial beliefs. It’s an intriguing premise. However, when Season 1 of Arcane dropped, the creators were not expecting the show to do as well as it did. Yet, the animation, world-building, and character development were of top quality and made a name for itself right from the start. Season 1 retains a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, a 9/10 on IMDB, was the first series based on a video game to receive both Annie Awards and Primetime Emmy Awards, and became the first Netflix series to win the Outstanding Animated Program. There’s no question the series deserves a second season, but with the uncertainty of its reception, there were no set plans for a second season; hence, the reason production of Season 2 has been a bit lagged.
Netflix has announced that Season 2 will drop in November of 2024, which is still a year away, but fans are grateful to have a release date and something to look forward to. Along with the release date, Netflix dropped a trailer teaser, one that featured Jinx carrying a heavy-looking armory, the iconic bridge that links Piltover and the Undercity, and a haunting song that reminds us that Jinx is here to cause as much chaos as she can. The second season has been highly anticipated, and though fans have to wait a little longer, the wait hopefully means the animation, storyline, and character arcs will be on par, if not better than Season 1.
