When Riot Games’ League of Legends animated series Arcane debuted on Netflix in early November, viewers were blown away by the show’s fascinating characters, epic tale, and breathtaking animation. The show went on to spend three consecutive weeks in the top 10 in over 52 countries. Even if the first season was awarded an Emmy for Outstanding Animated Program, that doesn’t mean the story has concluded.
There are now nine episodes of Season 1 accessible on Netflix, but after the shocking conclusion of that season, viewers are eager for more. Fortunately, it seems like Arcane’s tale has only just begun. As the second season of Arcane seems likely in light of the show’s critical praise and huge viewership, we’ve gathered all the latest details regarding the upcoming season below.
Arcane Season 2 Cast: Who Will Return and Who Are the Newcomers?
Netflix and Riot Games have already announced that Hailee Steinfeld (Vi), Ella Purnell (Jinx), and Katie Leung (Caitlyn Kiramman) will return to voice their respective characters in Arcane Season 2. Their voices were used in the Season 2 announcement teaser, while the identities of the remaining cast members are being kept under wraps for the time being.
Jayce Talis is played by Kevin Alejandro.
Teenager Molly Harris in “Young Caitlyn
Toks Olagundoye as Mel Medarda and Harry Lloyd as Viktor
Vander (JB Blanc) and Ekko (Bolbok Reed Shannon)
Casting Miles Brown as Young Ekko
As Jason Spisak’s (the voice of Silco) character was killed off in the Season 1 finale, his participation is less guaranteed, however, he may return in flashback scenes. Ella Purnell, who voices Jinx, said that she has begun production on Arcane Season 2 during Netflix’s Geek Week 2022 virtual event, but she declined to provide any other information.
Arcane Season 2 Review
Arcane’s second season transports viewers far into the future. It doesn’t take long to notice the abrupt shift in tone. When we eventually had the opportunity to visit both the top and lower parts of Piltover, the first thing that struck me was how drastically different they are from one another. Zaun has changed from having a calm, forlorn atmosphere to having more of an always-on, underground nightlife vibe. But it soon becomes apparent that despite its growth, those above continue to pass it by.
This abrupt transition also supports the notion that Vander (JB Blanc’s voice) had always desired a harmonious coexistence between them, whereas Silco believes he should strive to surpass them and be something greater. He has never faltered in his pursuit of power. Last but not least, Vi is what I learned about most from Part 2 of Arcane. After the dramatic way that part one ended, part two gives us the opportunity to observe how Jinx is handling everything. To find out how Vi is feeling, though, we must wait.
You can see how the events have affected her even if she isn’t as odd as her sister. And the notion that she has been “kept secure” from Silco for the past few years while in prison. Vi ends up working with Caitlyn (voiced by Katie Leung), and I’ve grown to love the way the two of them communicate in Arcane. I really hope Vi calls me a cupcake. Moreover, it’s fun to watch Caitlyn’s research as she makes her way around Zaun for the first time and emerges from her parents’ shadow.
We only have three episodes remaining in this series, and just like part one, part two ends on quite a cliffhanger. Overall, the second half was excellent. It didn’t follow the usual pattern of being a trilogy’s middle installment where you only get the journey. It relates to part one through action and character development and provides us a preview of what part three will include. I believe that Vi and Jinx will engage in combat before the credits start to roll. It will probably occur either at the series’ climactic moment or just before the series’ last conflict.
Arcane’s Part Two excels in showcasing character development. We finally have the opportunity to examine how the events of part one affected one another. Most noteworthy is how Jinx has developed. The moment we first see her, it is obvious how much she has changed. One, Jinx really kicks ass.
The loss of her sister and their pals is another issue she is dealing with. It’s amazing how Fortiche and Purnell were able to vividly depict Jinx’s anguish on TV. You may relate to and comprehend her suffering as a result of being overlooked and continue believing that she was never good enough. She manages to get involved in events even though Silco (Jason Spisak’s voice) excludes her from them.
Arcane Season 2 Release Date
According to TvGuide On November 20, 2021, after the third and last portion of the first season of Arcane had been released, the announcement for Season 2 was made. As of yet, Netflix has not revealed when Arcane Season 2 will be available, but 2022 is a safe bet to rule out. Riot Games CEO Nicolo Laurent confirmed the renewal, saying his team was working on Season 2, but that it will not be released in 2022.
Fortunately, as Laurent points out, all the technical processes needed for Season 2 are already in place. Due to the fact that animation takes a lot of time, our best estimation for when Arcane Season 2 will be released in late 2023; nevertheless, you shouldn’t be surprised if it ends up being 2024. (Do whatever it takes to maintain the high standard set by the first season; we’ll wait.)
