The creation of Hextech is a central theme in Arcaneas it frames the tensions between Piltover and Zaun for many years. In episode 4 there is a jump in time, where the main characters grow and mature until they become, in many cases, totally different beings.


Alert, spoilers ahead! The final act of Arcane focuses on Jayce’s (Kevin Alejandro) crisis for ending the problems between the two cities with restrictive and unequal measures, while ex-convict Vi (Hailee Steinfeld), police officer Caitlyn (Katie Leung) and Ekko, to whom we return To see from the first episodes, they work together to return the Hex gem and prevent it from falling into the hands of Silco (Jason Spisak), who uses Jinx to create destructive weapons for his incredible ingenuity.

It is an open ending and that could lead to a continuation that portrays the war that was initially wanted to avoid between Piltover and Zaun.

I don’t think most of Hollywood realizes how massive this is.“Said Shauna Spenley, president of Riot Entertainment, in an interview with Los Angeles Times. “I think we have a great opportunity to build incredible organic stories within this world, and for it to quietly build and become the intellectual property that defines a generation is going to take a little time.”.

Although Netflix and Riot Games haven’t confirmed a season 2 for Arcane, Spenley’s past statements open a door to the hope of many fans to continue watching more of the series of League of Legends and a satisfying ending for the story of the main characters.
