Created by Christian Linke and Alex Yee, Arcane has risen to become one of the most favorite animated action-adventure, bagging an Emmy at the 2022 awards for Outstanding Animated Program ever since its debut in November 2021 on Netflix. For those unaware of the show, it is based upon the world and characters of League of Legends, which is a very popular video game.

Although Netflix has officially renewed the second season of the show, it has not officially announced its release date. The renewal announcement of the show came briefly after the release of its first season.
Nicolo Lauren, the CEO of Riot Games, had previously announced on Twitter that although the first season took six years to make, season 2 takes as long. Be that as it may, the second season, unfortunately, won’t be making a cut in 2022. Before announcing this bittersweet news, he also wrote on Twitter, “So yeah, we are working on #arcane season 2”.
“The good news: you won’t have to wait for 6 years (the time it took us to making season 1) The bad news: it’s not coming in 2022.”
With that said, we can only expect Arcane Season 2 to hit the official streaming giant sometime in 2024 or 2023 at its earliest.
In a conversation with Superpixel, Alex Lee mentions, “This was an idea that we had early on, in terms of a release schedule for it. We were designing the story with the idea of having triplets. You feel like you get a good chunk every three, and the end of every third episode usually has some big moments.”
Further, he adds, “This schedule gave us the best of both worlds. You don’t have to wait too long to get through everything, and every time we have a drop of episodes, hopefully, there’s enough content for you to feel like ‘we got to sit down together, and we got to have a whole viewing experience.”
Who will be cast in Arcane Season 2?
Below-mentioned actors will certainly be cast in the following roles:
- Hailee Steinfeld as Vi
- Ella Purnell as Jinx
- Katie Leung as Caitlyn
In a conversation with One Esports, Yee said, “In many cases, the people we chose to work with were not quite as big at the time as they ended up becoming.”
Apart from the above-mentioned cast, recently, a new teaser was released on Twitter by Arcane’s team, hinting at the potential new addition to the series.

What to expect in Arcane season 2?
According to Reed Shannon (via CBR), “I would love to see Ekko and Mel interact. That would be crazy… There’s one thing about Arcane that I was very interested in, because of the poverty difference, because of the difference between the top city and the Undercity, race isn’t a thing that is discussed between the characters.
“So I would love to see how people that look the same interact. Is there that sort of thing, or is everybody just there? I would also love to see them interact just because Ekko is so smart, and she might be like, ‘Oh, you could be used… We could take you back to Noxus and you could build a big anything.’ That would be pretty interesting.”
