One of the shows being developed right now that I’m most excited about is the League of Legends animated series Arcane. This is a show that can’t come back fast enough, but the creative team is hard at work developing a show that fans are going to love.

During an interview with TechRadar, series voice actor Ella Purnell talked about their work on Amazon’s Fallout, but during the conversation, the actress teased what we can expect from Arcane Season 2, saying it’s going to make you cry.

She shared: “Oh man, I’m trying to remember [season one] because it was over two years ago. I actually just went back into the studio to complete some ADR 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.”

Nobody will feel good after watching it!? Well, that doesn’t sound good! While a happy ended may not be in store for Season 2, I’m still confident that the creative team is going to deliver a strong story.

Purnell will her role as Jinx in the series alongside Hailee Steinfeld as Vi. The two sisters are caught on opposing sides of a conflict in the utopian city of Piltover and its poor underbelly, Zaun.

When it comes to the story of Jinx and Vi, “Amidst the escalating unrest between the rich, utopian city of Piltover and its seedy, oppressed underbelly of Zaun, sisters Vi and Jinx find themselves on opposing sides of a brewing conflict over clashing convictions and arcane technologies.”

Season 2 has been in development for years and when talking about why the development for it has taken so long, Riot Games CEO Nicolo Laurent previously said: “It is not ready yet and there [are] two reasons for that. One, you want the quality.”

He added: “We just don’t want to rush and so that takes time. So that’s the good reason. The bad reason is, honestly, we didn’t know if Season 1 was going to be a success so we didn’t start Season 2 until [later]. If I had known, we could have started Season 2 way earlier. But we didn’t know so we waited a bit and now we’re paying the price. So, unfortunately, it’s not going to be this year.”
