It was almost evident that Netflix was going to renew the Arcane animated series from League of Legends for a Season 2. However, we had to see what happened at the end of Season 1. On November 20, Act 3 was released with episodes 7, 8 and 9, and we could see the end of Season 1. If this renewal was evident due to the stratospheric success of the series, after knowing the end it was simply a matter of time.
The official Twitter of the series published a tweet confirming season 2 with a teaser just one day after the premiere of Act 3 of Season 1. “Brace yourselves, friends. Arcane season 2 is already in production. Where is a Hexgate when you need it?“says the ad.

The Arcane series from League of Legends has broken all records when it comes to video game adaptations: has achieved an average grade of 9 in most specialized media (9,4 en IMDB), MRT gave it a 10/10 and In MRT Spain we gave it a 9 in a review that only tells wonders of this series. In addition, the reviews of each of its nine episodes have similar marks: 8, 9 and 10. A real success and best video game adaptation to date, as we expressed in our criticism.
What will happen in Season 2 of Arcane? ALERT: SPOILERS
Season 1 ends with the explosion of a pressure cooker that had been heating up since Episode 1 of the series. The class struggle intensifies, corruption makes good intentions disappear and it seems that Vi definitely loses Jinx or Powder. The latter launches a missile powered by hextech technology to the council chamber that runs the city of Piltover and Zaun, leaving an open ending on what happens when the missile passes through the glass of the room. An “all explode” would be the obvious and this would imply a new civil war between both cities and an eternal enmity between Vi / Caitlyn and Jinx.
While we wait, Arcane remains in the Top of most viewed content on Netflix internationally and the number of players in the original game has been increased. Also, Riot Games recently released the game. Ruined King a League of Legends Story, whose analysis will arrive at MRT Spain this week.
Arcane Season 2 is now in production and is expected to hit Netflix sometime in 2022.
