In November 2023, Riot Games and Fortiche Production confirmed the release of Arcane Season 2.
Voice Actor Ella Purnell, who voices Jinx in Arcane, said in an interview that Arcane Season 2 finale is devastating.

Every time there is a new piece of information about the League of Legends-based Netflix original Arcane, there is excitement and furor in the community. Last year in November 2023, official Arcane social media channels finally shared a premiere release window for season two. Following this, Riot Games revealed the first teaser trailer for Arcane Season 2 on 5th January. While the teaser was short with a run time of 44 seconds, it seemingly confirmed one of the major fan theories from Arcane Season 1 about Vander.

As usual, there were no major updates from Arcane's side after this. However, the voice actor behind the character of Jinx in Arcane, Ella Purnell, talked about the finale of the new and upcoming season in an exclusive to TechRadar.

Here's what she said about the finale of Season 2 of Arcane.

Jinx VA Ella Purnell Cried Watched Arcane Season 2 Finale

Jinx voice actor Ella Purnell talked to TechRadar at the UK junket for Prime Video's Fallout TV show recently. She reportedly stated that Season 2 will be as heart-wrenching, if not more so, than Arcane Season 1.

While Purnell did not share any major spoilers or plot points, she noted that fans will be emotionally affected after watching the new season. Talking to TechRadar, she said, "Oh man, I'm trying to remember it [season 1] because it was over two years ago."

Commenting on what fans could expect to see from Season 2, Ella Purnell reportedly said, "I actually just went back into the studio to complete some ADR [automated dialog replacement] for the season 2 finale – and I cried. So, I think other people will cry, too. It's devastating, and nobody will feel good after watching it."


Arcane Season 2 Release Window Announced

For the third year in a row in 2023, Netflix has brought back its Geeked Week event where it makes new announcements every day about different TV shows. 

Starting off Netflix Geeked Week 2023, fans were treated to an exciting announcement about Arcane's Season 2. While there is no confirmed release date as of yet, we can be confident of the show's release in November 2024.

Captioned, "Arcane. Season 2. November 2024. #GeekedWeek," the announcement teaser which was shared on 9th November showed Jinx, one of the main characters of the show, walking across the infamous bridge in Arcane.


What Do We Know About Arcane Season 2 So Far?

Interestingly, last year in November 2022, co-creators of the show — Christian Linke and Alex Yee — took to Reddit to participate in an AMA [Ask Me Anything].

Here are some interesting answers we got from the creators of Arcane:

  • Mel Medara, who was last seen in the council room that was hit by Jinx' rocket, could return in Arcane Season 2.

  • Christian Linke described Season 2 with this one word: War. Meanwhile, Yee described Arcane Season 2 as "Rubicon." Notably, Rubicon is a river in Italy that Julius Ceaser crossed, declaring war on Rome.

  • Christian Linke teased fans with a “maybe” on sex scenes in Arcane Season 2.

  • Actor Jason Spisak confirmed that his character Silco will return in season two of Arcane.

  • As part of a Dev Update in January 2024, Riot Games shared an interesting teaser trailer for Arcane Season 2. This teaser seemed to confirm fan theories that Vander could very well be Warwick.
