news culture Arcane Season 2: The Netflix Series will focus on the Vi/Caitlyn couple
It’s been a few months since the Arcane series left us with a huge cliffhanger… But today, after long months of silence, the series is making headlines again.
The direct sequel to Arcane Season 1?
The universe of LoL (League of Legends) is vast… It’s quite simple, the free-to-play game that offers players the opportunity to participate in competitive matches has no less than 140 champions to embody. The directors of the Arcane series, namely Alex Yee and Christian Linke, could then have put aside the story of Vi and Powder to offer new adventures accompanied by new LoL characters to build Season 2 of Arcane, but that’s not it.
The directors of the series took the floor during the BAFTA Awards and took the opportunity to discuss Vi’s return, meaning that This Season 2 will indeed be the direct sequel to Season 1 who, as we recall, won no fewer than nine trophies at the Annie Awards. In fact, during the ceremony (which aims to honor animated films, series and short films), Arcane won the awards in the following categories: Best Special Effects, Best Character Animation, Best Character Design, Best TV Show, Best Director, Best Production, Best Storyboard, Best Dubbing and Best Writing.
More attention will be paid to the Vi/Caitlyn couple
That’s not all, during the BAFTAs the showrunners also clarified that the slow development of Vi and Caitlyn’s relationship in season one is entirely intentional. The aim was to give more space to the sibling story between Vi and Powder. However, they state that this Vi/Caitlyn pair will gain thickness precisely with Season 2.
We’ve always wanted to tell an organic story between Caitlyn and Vi that feels like we really are who we see them. How we wanted to unfold this story was always set in some way. What you’ll see in Season 2 will show the “big picture” we’ve had of them from the start. Alex Yee, director of Arcane
Director Alex Yee later adds that Arcane fans will be “happy” with the direction they’ve chosen for these two characters.
As a reminder, it will take patience to get your hands on Season 2 of Arcane as the latter airs on Netflix in 2023 at best.
