Netflix hopes to catch the gamers’ attention by bringing the League of Legends universe to the small screen in Arcane. At the recent Tudum event, the streaming platform revealed the trailer for the show based on one of the most popular games in the world. The story will follow the complicated history of Vi and Jinx before they become the notorious LoL champions. Hawkeye‘s Hailee Steinfeld is voicing the pink neon-colored hair character while Army of the Dead alum Ella Purnell is Jinx. Fans have been speculating about the relationship between these two characters since Jinx’s debut back in 2013. Even though it was later revealed that they share the same blood, there are still a few pending questions about their past. Hopefully, the upcoming show will bring some answers.

Netflix also announced that the series would debut in November, soon after the League of Legends Worlds Final. Unlike other shows, Arcane will follow a peculiar release schedule. The nine-episode series will be split into three acts, each consisting of three episodes. The first act will premiere on Saturday, Nov. 6, the remaining two will follow on Nov. 13 and Nov. 20, respectively.
According to a new logline, “Arcane dives into the delicate balance between the rich city of Piltover and the seedy underbelly of Zaun. Known across Runeterra as the ‘city of progress,’ many of the most brilliant minds call these cities home. But the creation of hextech, a way for any person to control magical energy, threatens that balance. While Arcane holds the backstories of League of Legends champions, the series is designed to stand on its own as a complex world filled with moral decisions, breathtaking animation, and suspenseful storytelling.”
The cast also includes Kevin Alejandro as Jayce, Katie Leung as Caitlyn, Jason Spisak as Silco and Toks Olagundoye as Mel. Additionally, JB Blanc is Vander and Harry Lloyd is Vicktor.
