League of Legends Arcane Series: Netflix’s ‘Arcane’ becomes the first streaming series to win the Emmy
Arcane’s 6th episode wins this Emmy Award for Creative Arts and made them the first streaming show to win this award. Fans must have remembered this highlight of Act II as the episode that includes Jinx’s now-signature sequence of lighting up a blue flare with firelights before the standoff.
Last month, Riot games released episodes of a five-part documentary series on YouTube titled Arcane: Bridging the Rift. In this series, Fans will see the show’s behind-the-scenes efforts, detailing his birth of Arcane as a project and its development process over the last six to seven years.
Riot games still haven’t confirmed the second season’s release date, but the CEO Nicole Laurent of Riot games has said that it wouldn’t be coming in this year, and also that the work on season 2 has started. I hope it won’t take another six to seven years.
