Dominique Bazay, director, original animation for Netflix said: “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.”

“Arcane was created as a love letter to our players and fans, who have been asking us for more cinematic experiences that dive deeper into the worlds and champions in League of Legends,” said Shauna Spenley, global president of entertainment at Riot Games.

“Netflix, with its incredible global brand and shared goal of delivering premium, high-quality content, is the perfect partner to help us bring Arcane to players around the globe.”

Arcane is developed and produced by Riot Games in partnership with Fortiche Productions.

Set in the region of Piltover and the underground of Zaun, the story follows the origins of two League champions and “the power that will tear them apart.”
