Arcane season 2 is not coming to Netflix in September 2022! The series made its debut on Netflix in November 2021 and has since gone on to win an Emmy at the 2022 awards for Outstanding Animated Program. Arcane is an animated action-adventure, created by Christian Linke and Alex Yee, based on the world and characters of the popular video game, League of Legends. The Netflix adaptation mainly focuses on sisters Vi and Jinx, who find themselves on opposing sides of a brewing conflict over “clashing convictions and arcane technologies”.
With a gripping tale throughout, charismatic characters, nail-biting action sequences, and not forgetting that cliffhanger ending, the smash-hit animated series was an instant favorite of viewers. So, it’s unsurprising that many are wondering when the series will be returning to our screens. Here’s all the latest news on the release date for Arcane season 2, and all you need to know about what the future holds for the show.
Arcane season 2 release date: When will Arcane season 2 come out?
At this time of writing, Arcane season 2 does not have an official release date. While Netflix confirmed that a second season is in the works, shortly after its initial release, the streaming giant has yet to confirm any news on season 2’s release.
Riot Games CEO Nicolo Laurent, revealed previously, via Twitter, that the first season took six years to make, but promised that the wait for season 2 won’t be as long, but don’t get your hopes up too much as season 2 is “not coming in 2022”:
“So yeah, we are working on #arcane season 2,” he wrote online before revealing the “good” and “bad” news about the series.
“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.”
Given he has confirmed that the series won’t be returning in 2022, as it’s likely quite difficult to speed up six years of production, we can only assume that the show could be ready for release in 2023 or early 2024.
