Netflix, Riot Games present 1st League of Legends animated TV series ‘Arcane’

NETFLIX and Riot Games are bringing the global phenomenon League of Legends franchise to television with the animated event series “Arcane,” set to premiere on Netflix worldwide in Fall 2021.

The series marks Riot Games’ first series for television. Set in Riot’s globally popular League of Legends IP, “Arcane” is an animated series developed and produced by Riot Games in partnership with Fortiche Productions. Set in the utopian region of Piltover and the oppressed underground of Zaun, the story follows the origins of two iconic League champions-and the power that will tear them apart.

“League of Legends has inspired global fervor and fandom and we’re thrilled to be the home of the first television series set in this universe, ‘Arcane.’ The series promises to be a visually spectacular thrill ride that will have viewers on the edge of their seats,” said Dominique Bazay, director, original animation for Netflix.

“‘Arcane’ was created as a love letter to our players and fans, who have been asking us for more cinematic experiences that dive deeper into the worlds and champions in League of Legends. Netflix, with its incredible global brand and a shared goal of delivering premium, high-quality content, is the perfect partner to help us bring Arcane to players around the globe,” added Shauna Spenley, global president of entertainment at Riot Games.

Riot Games continues to grow its global fanbase in and out of the game. It has amassed over 14 billion views on its videos globally, and its League of Legends 2020 World Championship esports competition saw record-setting viewership across multiple metrics. In total, over one billion hours of content was consumed around the world, extending League’s position as the planet’s most-watched esport, with the final match reaching a 23.04 million average minute audience and hitting 45 million peak concurrent users.
