Netflix is setting the stage for one of the most awaited returns next year: the second season of ‘Arcane’. The acclaimed series inspired by the universe of ‘League of Legends’ has stirred excitement since its debut, and here’s everything we know so far.
A Resounding Success: Arcane on Netflix
In 2021, ‘Arcane’ not only established itself as one of the most-watched series on the platform, but it also showcased the powerful connection between video games and animated series.

Although the exact date is still up in the air, during the recent Tencent Video V Vision conference, it has been confirmed that ‘Arcane’ is slated for release in the fourth quarter of 2024. Thus, all indications point to a winter premiere next year.
Quality Over Speed
The wait for the series’ return might seem lengthy, but there are valid reasons behind it. Riot Games, the mastermind behind the successful game, has expressed their intent not to rush production.

No Previews, Yet High Expectations
To date, no trailers or additional details about what awaits in the second season have been released. However, it’s clear that Netflix and Riot Games are keen on capitalizing on the ‘League of Legends’ phenomenon. Keep in mind that this game is about to celebrate its 15th anniversary, and its popularity shows no signs of waning.
Beyond the love from fans, ‘Arcane’ has been praised by experts in the field. Ratings on Rotten Tomatoes confirm it: a 100% on the tomatometer and a 96% audience approval rating. It’s undoubtedly a series that has left its mark and from which great things are expected.
The Show Must go on!
