Is Arcane Season 2 The Last One? Creators confirms that they always “had a very specific ending in mind”

June 12, 2024
  • Arcane season 2 will be the show’s last with a release date set for November 2024.
  • Expect more League of Legends shows after Arcane as creators plan to continue exploring the world of League of Legends.
  • Arcane season 2’s trailer suggests an emotionally intense conclusion for Jinx and Vi.

Arcane season 2 will bring the League of Legends show back three years after the release of the acclaimed first season – but is it the end of Jinx and Vi’s stories? Considering how many disappointing video game adaptations there had been over the years, what Netflix’s Arcane accomplished surprised even the most optimistic fans. The series, which tells an original story whose canon status was only recently confirmed, expanded the world of the famous online game and pleased long-time players and new audiences alike. After years of waiting, Arcane season 2 finally got a release date and a trailer.

Arcane season 1 ended on a cliffhanger, making it clear that there were more stories left to tell about Jinx and Vi. One of the best shows of 2021, Arcane set the bar high for future video game adaptations and animated series in general. Given how successful the first season was, it was easy to assume that the League of Legends show was going to continue for several years, even though the long wait for season 2 was somewhat concerning. This is why Arcane season 2’s trailer “Witness the final chapter” tagline took many by surprise.

Arcane Season 2 Will Be The Show’s Last

Netflix’s Arcane will end with season 2. The release of the first full trailer for Arcane season 2 came alongside the surprising news that the series will conclude in November 2024 when the new episodes arrive on Netflix. Although it can be shocking to learn that Arcane season 3 will not happen, a closer look at the show’s story indicates that it was never going to run for several years anyway. Arcane was never described as a limited series, but the series always felt relatively self-contained and with a clear end goal in mind.

“From the very beginning, since we started working on this project, we had a very specific ending in mind, which means the story of Arcane wraps up with this second season. But Arcane is just the first of many stories that we want to tell in Runeterra.”

Arcane co-creator Christian Linke confirmed that they always “had a very specific ending in mind.” Therefore, it is safe to assume that Arcane was not canceled but rather reached the natural conclusion that the creators had planned for the story. Linke stated that “the story of ‘Arcane’ wraps up with this second season,” further indicating that the show will have a satisfying conclusion and will not end on a cliffhanger. While two seasons may seem like a short run for a show as well-received as Arcane, Linke’s comments make the decision easier to understand.

Expect Other League Of Legends Shows After Arcane

Arcane is not the end of the franchise

Arcane season 2 may be the end of the show, but it will not be the end of this League of Legends TV franchise. As speculated since Arcane season 1, the creators of the intend to tell other stories set in Runeterra. According to Linke, “Arcane ‘is just the beginning of our larger storytelling journey.” He also confirmed that they will continue to collaborate with Fortiche, the animation studio behind Arcane. Therefore, while Arcane is indeed ending after season 2, viewers should expect plenty of other League of Legends-inspired shows in the future.

With just one season left, Arcane will have to make the most of its final episodes to conclude the complex, emotional story that it introduced in season 1.

The incredible response to Arcane season 1 meant that, even if the stories of Jinx and Vi didn’t last much longer, this newly born franchise was certainly going to continue somehow. Future shows set in the world of League of Legends could explore, for example, other regions of the game’s map – including Noxus and Demacia. Given how Arcane was essentially an original story placed in a pre-existing universe, it can be difficult to predict what the next shows would be about. Still, the possibilities are endless.
