Netflix and Riot Games brought the global phenomenon League of Legends franchise to television, with the final act III hitting screens on 20th November.
Based on the world behind League of Legends, Arcane dives into the delicate balance between the rich city of Piltover and the seedy underbelly of Zaun. Known across Runeterra as the “city of progress”, many of the most brilliant minds call these cities home. But the creation of hextech, a way for any person to control magical energy, threatens that balance.
While Arcane holds the backstories of League of Legends characters, the series is designed to stand on its own as a complex world filled with moral decisions, breathtaking animation, and suspenseful storytelling.
Season 1 main actors list:
o Vi – Hailee Steinfeld
o Caitlyn – Katie Leung
o Jayce – Kevin Alejandro
o Silco – Jason Spisak
o Jinx – Ella Purnell
o Mel – Toks Olagundoye
o Vander – JB Blanc
- Viktor – Harry Lloyd
Season 2 was announced on Saturday, 20th November
