Arcane, Riot Games’ phenomenal animated adaptation of their video game, League of Legends, has taken the world by storm. So unsurprisingly, Netflix has already renewed the incredible series for a second season.

Arcane is the prequel animated series to Riot Game’s smash hit MOBA video game League of Legends. Produced by Riot Games and French animation studio Fortiche, the series has received widespread critical acclaim, impressing millions of fans worldwide, and introducing a brand new audience to the franchise.

The series was created and written by Christian Linke and Alex Yee. Meanwhile, directing duties were left to Pascal Charrue and Arnaud Delord.

Set in the utopian region of Piltover and the oppressed underground of Zaun, the story follows the origins of two iconic League champions-and the power that will tear them apart.
