The year 2023 has here, which means we may finally get some concrete information about season 2 of Arcane.
The critically acclaimed Netflix cartoon series has only been absent from our screens for 14 months, but we can’t wait to find what what happens to Vi, Jinx, and the rest of the cast in Arcane Season 2. After all, it’s a multi-award-winning Netflix original, whose worldwide audience rivals that of the gaming series it’s based on, and it’s consistently ranked as one of the finest programmes of all time.
Let’s talk about what’s new in Arcane Season 2! Sad to say, nothing. The news cycle has slowed down due to the holidays, and we should not anticipate any formal statements for some time. We have only the vaguest of dates for the release of Arcane’s second season, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed that it’ll be this year.
Who Will Be in Arcane Season 2?
The voice actors from the first season will be back for the sequel:
- In the roles of Vi and Jinx, respectively, are Hailee Steinfeld and Ella Purnell (formerly known as Powder)
- Katie Leung, who played Caitlyn Steinfeld in the film, has now joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) as Kate Bishop, a young aspiring superhero who is taken under Hawkeye’s wing in the television series Hawkeye. She also portrayed a young Emily
- Dickinson and won plaudits for her performance in the film Dickinson.
- Many of the folks we decided to work with weren’t as big as they ended up becoming, Yee told One Esports.
- When asked about the success of their collaborators, Linke said, “It was nice to see that a lot of the talent that we picked to work with throughout the years blossomed off in a number of various genres and projects.”
- Similarly surprising was the casting of Ella Purnell as Jinx’s voice actor. Purnell most recently impressed moviegoers in Yellowjackets. “We all know who she is in the game,” Yee remarked. But we wanted to show her that there was a subtle and honest human being below Jinx’s huge, loud, and flashy façade, and I think Ella was real wonderful in that.
- Fans are wondering whether there will be an exciting new addition to the series after seeing a teaser from Arcane’s crew.
When May We See Season 2 of Arcane?
There is no confirmed date for the release of Arcane Season 2. That’s despite the fact that the show was renewed in November 2021; after all, production of a show of this calibre naturally takes some time. Nicolo Laurent, CEO of Riot Games, also said (in November 2021) that season 2 wouldn’t come out until 2023. Perhaps now that that year has arrived, we will hear something concrete about a release date.
The Mysterious Second Season’s Plot: What Will Happen?
It’s possible that several of the main characters from season 1 of Arcane won’t return for season 2. Jinx launched an arcane crystal rocket towards the Piltover council chamber, where many of the show’s key protagonists and supporting cast were meeting. The rocket burst in the chamber with Jayce, Mel, Viktor, Cassandra, Hoskel, Bolbok, Shoola, and Salo inside.
We don’t think everyone will make it. At the absolute least, we expect Mel and Cassandra to be dead or seriously hurt. Fans on Reddit(opens in new tab) share this opinion, with some speculating that a season 2 animation frame shown in episode 3 of Bridging the Rift reveals Cassandra’s death. It seems strange that Riot and Fortiche would intentionally spoil the project before its release, but maybe they wanted to test whether anybody would notice. This doesn’t seem to be a scene from the first season of Arcane, therefore it may be the first glimpse of season 2 (unless it’s a deleted one).

When Can We Expect to See the Arcane Season 2 Trailer?
No trailer has surfaced as of yet, but at least there’s always next week’s episode of Bridging the Rift to look forward to.
There are now five episodes available, and they explore the show’s magical origins in animation and music.
See for yourself! And when the second season trailer arrives, you can be sure we’ll let you know.
