Netflix shared a new teaser trailer for Season 2 of its hit series Arcane, but it came with a bit of sad news. The critically acclaimed CG-animated series will be ending with this next batch of episodes.

The official teaser is filled with action-packed intensity as the Piltover prepares its counter-offensive strike against the underground city of Zaun. Tension is at an all-time high following Jinx's cataclysmic attack on the Council at the end of the first season, sparking an all-out war between the two cities.

Leading Piltover's assault are Caitlyn Kirraman and Vi, with a mission to locate Jinx (formerly known as Powder), dismantle the shimmer manufacturing plants, and “neutralize” any agents who still remain loyal to the deceased underground kingpin, Silco.

Of course, at the heart of Arcane is a story about two sisters who now find themselves firmly entrenched on opposite sides of the conflict. "My sister is gone," Vi says, finally acknowledging her sister as "Jinx" instead of Powder. The teaser comes to an end as the two sisters prepare to go at it in what will surely be an intense battle.

If you're a fan of Arcane Season 1, there's no doubt this trailer has got you excited. Unfortunately, its release was tempered by the fact that Season 2 will mark the end of Arcane. But there's hope!

While the story of Arcane will end with Season 2, series co-creator and Riot Games creative director Christian Linke said that this is far from the last League of Legends-inspired story that the team wants to tell.

"Arcane is just the beginning of our larger storytelling journey and partnership with the wonderful animation studio that is Fortiche," Linke said in a League Dev Update.  "From the very beginning, since we started working on this project, we had a very specific ending in mind, which means the story of Arcane wraps up with this second season. But Arcane is just the first of many stories that we want to tell in Runeterra.”

Arcane was Riot's first venture into television and it couldn't have gone much better for the video game publisher. The series was released to widespread acclaim, receiving praise for its animation, storytelling and worldbuilding, action sequences, character development, and voice acting. The series stars Hailee Steinfeld (Bumblebee, Into the Spider-Verse) as Vi and Ella Purnell (Fallout) as Poder/Jinx. Arcane scored a perfect 100% on Rotten Tomatoes with a 96% Audience Score. In 2022, it became the first streaming series to win a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program and won an Annie Award for Best General Audience Animated Television Broadcast Production.

Arcane Season 2 is set to debut exclusively on Netflix this November.
