Following the announcement of the second season, Riot Games CEO, Nicolo Laurent mentioned in a Tweet that Arcane Season 2 will not release in 2022. This means that at the earliest, you should expect Arcane season 2 to come out in 2023 (and hopefully not later).
While we’re sure that everyone can’t wait for the release of Arcane season 2 given that season 1 ended in a cliffhanger, at the very least, we won’t have to wait 6 years for the second season. After all, Arcane season 1 took 6 years to create.
So yeah, we are working on #arcane season 2.
The good news: you won’t have to wait for 6 years (the time it took us to making season 1)
The bad news: it’s not coming in 2022 😢 https://t.co/IQoPyLnw1J

Haven’t seen the series yet? Arcane is the first League of Legends animated show, and it serves as an origin story for several LoL champions, including Jinx, Vi, Caitlyn, Jayce, Viktor, and more.
The series’ premise is described as:
“Arcane dives into the delicate balance between the rich city of Piltover and the seedy underbelly of Zaun. Tensions between these city-states boil over with the creation of hextech — a way for any person to control magical energy – in Piltover; and in Zaun, a new drug called shimmer transforms humans into monsters. The rivalry between the cities splits families and friends as Arcane brings life to the relationships that shape some of League of Legends’ famous champions including Vi, Jinx, Caitlyn, Jayce and Viktor. Based on the world behind the game League of Legends, the animated event series features a complex world filled with moral decisions, breathtaking animation and suspenseful storytelling.”
