Based on the well-known online game League of Legends, the Netflix original series Arcane explores the genesis story of the characters, particularly that of sisters Violet (Vi) and Powder (Jinx). Following the sad ending of the first season of the series, production for the second season was recently revealed and fans are eager to find out more about what’s to come. Arcane is considered a top-notch adaptation and has garnered high marks from fans of the LOL universe and lore, gamers and non-gamers alike.
The TV show is set in Piltover, a place known for its cutting-edge Hextech, which allows people to duplicate magic through rational means. However, the so-called “City of Progress” is not the utopia it appears to be at first glance, with the Undercity plagued by poverty, disease, and starvation, subject to the whims of crime lords, and addicted to glitter. The conflict between the sisters and the town finally came to a head in the season one finale. In light of that, let’s examine everything we currently know about the second season.
Arcane Season 2: The Plot
Although the plot of the second season has not been officially revealed, we can certainly make assumptions based on the season finale. Jinx comes to a crucial acceptance of who she is after killing Silco to save her sister, and also understands that no matter what she or her sister does, their relationship will never be the same. Vi will never be able to accept Powder as she is because she will always be seen as Powder, the weak little sister that she needs to be taken care of. Jinx chooses to use the gemstone along with his weapon and launch a rocket at the Piltover Capitol building after having this epiphanic moment. She has no idea that the council has just unanimously decided to allow the Undercity to become an independent country, the city of Zaun, while she does so.
We will probably see complete chaos in Season 2 when the attack completely destroys Piltover. Piltover will be exposed to more attacks from Zaun because its leaders are dead and wounded. Also, even if some council members survived the rocket blast, they are unlikely to maintain their determination to resolve this conflict amicably at this time. The odds are in favor of a conflict, and while Piltover wasn’t ready, the Undercity doesn’t have a leader to rally them either.
Now we wonder who will succeed him as ruler of the Undercity. Jinx played the role of Silco’s adopted daughter, but it is unlikely that any of Silco’s previous supporters and allies stuck with her considering that many of them considered her annoying, unstable, and unreliable. Of course, she started this war, so she will undoubtedly be involved in its conclusion.
Maybe Vi will take the lead instead. Vi holds considerable power and respect in the Undercity as Vander’s adopted daughter, and with her ties to Piltover’s elite, she may be able to unite the people of Zaun for a just cause and prevent the coming war.
We also speculate on what will happen to the Firelights. Will Ekko take the initiative to broker an agreement between Piltover and Zaun, or will they back the conflict? And naturally, what will happen to Jinx and Vi? Will the two be able to mend their bond, or is it already irreparably broken? Is Jinx past the point where Vi can help?
Vi and Caitlyn’s connection is another one we’ll likely see grow and possibly get tested. Caitlyn is a member of Piltover’s elite, but her mother was a councilwoman who was the rocket’s intended target. Even if Caitlyn’s mother is alive or dead, we don’t know yet, this incident will affect her negatively. She can now seek her own revenge and retaliation from her as she fights for justice on behalf of the Zaunites who have been wronged, which could strain her relationship with Vi if she continues to protect Jinx.
Arcane Season 2: The Cast
Vi (Hailee Steinfeld), Jinx (Ella Purnell) and Caitlyn (Katie Leung) will return to the main cast. Ekko (Reed Lorenzo Shannon), Heimerdinger (Mick Wingert) and Sevika (Amirah Vann) are other supporting figures. Characters like Jayce (Kevin Alejandro), Viktor (Harry Lloyd), Mel (Toks Olagundoye) and the other council members may return in season two if any of them survived the explosion or in flashbacks before the rocket launch, though their current whereabouts are currently unknown.
Warwick is one of the few additional characters in the game that have been confirmed to appear in the second season of Arcane as of this writing. At the end of Season 1, we get a look at the figure in Singed’s lab. Fans have hypothesized that Vander, who consumed glitter and transformed into a monster, is responsible for creating the figure. It has been confirmed that Orianna, the Lady of the Clock whose body is powered by Hextech, will also appear in the second season. Janna, a wind spirit who protects the dispossessed of Zaun, is another figure that is rumored to be at least named, if she doesn’t appear.
The release date for the second season has yet to be officially announced, however it is projected to happen sometime in 2023. Arcane season 2 is now in development and we have some sneak peeks from the show’s Twitter account.
Get ready, friends. Arcane Season 2 is already in production.
