Arcane Season 1 took the entertainment world by storm, emerging as one of Netflix’s standout shows in 2021. The series achieved remarkable success, securing three Emmys and eight Annie Awards. Although it’s rooted in the lore of the real-time strategy video game “League of Legends,” the storyline is entirely original.
The characters featured in the show had only brief backstories in the video game, making it accessible to viewers regardless of their familiarity with “League of Legends.” This accessibility was a key factor in the show’s widespread international success.

“Arcane” delves into the complex narrative of two sisters, Vi and her younger sibling Jinx, who evolve from loving family members to fierce adversaries within the League of Legends universe. The series unravels their journey as they find themselves on opposing sides in a civil war that engulfs the affluent city of Piltover and the destitute underbelly of Zaun. “Arcane” offers a blend of magic, technology, explosive action, heart-wrenching moments, passionate romance, and introduces an endearing character known as Heimerdinger.
Given its captivating storytelling and widespread appeal, it comes as no surprise that Netflix promptly greenlit a second season for “Arcane.”
Arcane Season 2 release date
Arcane Season 2 was officially confirmed on November 20, 2021, right after the release of the third and final part of its inaugural season. While Netflix has yet to provide a specific release date for Arcane Season 2, it’s unlikely to make a return in 2023, leading us to anticipate a launch in 2024.
In September 2023, Tencent, the parent company of Riot Games, the developer behind League of Legends, made a revelation during its Video V Vision Conference. They indicated that Arcane Season 2 is slated for a winter 2024 premiere.
While this represents the most reliable information we currently have about the release timeline, we will continue to await an official confirmation from Riot and Netflix before considering it official.
Who Will Be in Arcane Season 2?
The end of Season 1 left us on the edge with a significant cliffhanger involving the destruction of the Piltover council chamber. This explosive event will have a major impact on which characters will return for Season 2. Netflix has confirmed the comeback of some key cast members, including Hailee Steinfeld as Vi, Ella Purnell as Jinx, and Katie Leung as Caitlyn.
As for the fate of those present in the council chamber during the explosion, like Jayce, Viktor, Mel, Hoskel, Cassandra, Bolbok, Shoola, and Salo, it remains uncertain.
