We have some exciting news for all you arcane enthusiasts. The show’s first season was recently released. Critics complimented the series’ combination of hand-drawn and CGI animation, as well as the narrative, world-building, characters, and voice casting.
Within a week of its launch, it became Netflix’s highest-rated show ever, achieving number one on the Netflix Top 10 chart in 52 countries and number two in the United States.
The show is doing pretty well. And the story-line of the show is also interesting. Sisters Vi and Jinx find themselves on opposing sides of a conflict over warped ideals and arcane technology in the middle of rising unrest between the advanced, utopian metropolis of Piltover and the wretched, repressive undercity of Zaun. Let’s discuss about the second season. Wait, are we getting another season?
Arcane Renewed for Season 2 at Netflix
Let’s get into the excellent news. Following the completion of Arcane’s first season on November 20, 2021, Riot Games and Netflix confirmed that a second season was in production for a post-2022 release.
The news was revealed at the conclusion of a fan convention on Saturday night. Christian Linke, the series’ co-creator, as well as Riot Games founders Marc Merrill and Brandon Beck, Jane Chung, and Thomas Vu, will develop the second season of Arcane.
Co-creators Christian Linke and Alex Yee made a statement regarding the upcoming installment of Arcane. “We’re beyond happy about the positive response to Arcane‘s first season and are working hard with the creative wizards at Riot and Fortiche to deliver our second installment.”
Because the conclusion of the nine-episode arc ended on a major cliffhanger, everyone instantly questioned about the renewal, and now everyone knows.
This great news was also posted on Arcane’s official Twitter account. Ready yourselves, friends. The tweet reads, “Season 2 of Arcane is now in production. Where’s a Hexgate when you need one?” Watch the tweet below.

Season 2 Of Arcane Will Not Be Released Until 2022
Of course, the official release date has yet to be confirmed. All that was mentioned was the show’s renewal and the fact that it is currently in production. However, there is some good news and some bad news. The next season of the show will not take 6 years to release like it did for season 1.
That means, we don’t have a long wait. But it will not be released by 2022, so our best bet is that we will see another season in 2023, hopefully. Riot’s Nicolo mentioned the above details. Watch the official tweet below.
