Netflix Drops Sinister Teaser: Arcane Season 2 Brings Back a Familiar Face

John Nguyen


Arcane, the Netflix animated series, was set in the world of League of Legends, and it delighted fans of the video game franchise as well as bringing in new fans who never got into the game. It was a hit with critics and audiences alike with a 100% Tomatometer and 96% audience score. Years after the first season’s premiere in 2021, Netflix has dropped the first look teaser video for Arcane: Season 2, and it gives us a glimpse of a new danger along with the return of Singed.

In the very short trailer, Singed looks at his pocketwatch and it seems that he is offering up his blood to a giant creature hanging above him. It gives audiences a taste of the obstacles that our protagonists will be going up against, but could this be someone we know from the first season?

Spoilers ahead for Arcane Season 1

Vander was an important character and a father figure to Vi and Jinx. He died in the first season, and the theory is that he will be resurrected as a monster known as Warwick, a lycan in League of Legends. With the new trailer, it looks like the theory could be correct with Singed experimenting on the creature, pumping him full of chemicals. We see similarities with Warwick with the chambers and pumps on his back, especially with the green chemical.

Of course, we’ll probably have to wait until the show comes out this year in November to find out who this mysterious creature is.
