Arcane is an upcoming Netflix exclusive animated series created by Riot Games set in the same universe as their hit game, League of Legends.

Fans got a taste of Arcane back during Riot's 10-year anniversary, where the first trailer was unveiled.

This is Riot Games' first time tackling the medium of television, and part of a growing trend with Riot and League of Legends' continued expansion into other forms of media.

Originally slated for a 2020 release but delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic, per an announcement made on the League of Legends Twitter, Arcane is set to release on Netflix this upcoming Fall.

While we are unsure of the identity of some of the main characters, Arcane does seem to be an origin story for iconic League of Legends characters Jinx and Vi.

Arcane may play out as an exploration of the relationship of Jinx and Vi, and how one turns to a life of crime and rebellion, and how the other turns to a life of law and order.

it's unclear how much of a prominent role other League of Legends champions will play, but from previews and connections certain champions share with one another, viewers may find one of their favorite champions onscreen.
