Arcane, an animated series based on popular video game League of Legends (LoL), is set for a worldwide premiere on Netflix this fall. 

Set in the utopian region of Piltover and the oppressed underground of Zaun, the series will explore the origins of two iconic LoL characters,  Jinx and Vi –  and the power that will divide them. 

The show’s official release date and specific plot have yet to be released.

Arcane is developed and produced by Riot Games in partnership with Fortiche Productions, a Paris-based animation studio that has created several of Riot Games’ music videos, game cinematics and LoL advertisements.

“League of Legends has inspired global fervor and fandom and we’re thrilled to be the home of the first television series set in this universe, Arcane. The series promises to be a visually spectacular thrill ride that will have viewers on the edge of their seats,” said Dominique Bazay, director of the original animation for Netflix. 

Launched in 2009, LoL is the most popular multiplayer online battle arena video game in the world.
