Back in 2010 we saw a great live-action short titled Mortal Kombat: Rebirth that was made by Kevin Tancharoen in hopes of selling Warner Brothers on the idea of a new Mortal Kombat movie. The movie sadly hasn’t arrived yet, but from that short a very popular web series called Mortal Kombat: Legacy was born.
Now, two years after season one of the web series was released, a second season titled Mortal Kombat: Legacy II is near. An official release date for season two has been set and a new trailer is here as well, both of which can be found along with a description below.
The first season of “Mortal Kombat: Legacy” was one of 2011’s most-viewed web series and has generated more than 70 million views to date on Machinima. In the highly anticipated second season, the saga continues as Liu Kang and Ermac join the ranks of fighters introduced in the series’ first season, including Kenshi, Kung Lao, Kuai Lang, Stryker, Kitana, Mileena, Johnny Cage, Scortcheson and Sub- Zero.
This new season uncovers the rivalries and histories of these fierce warriors as Raiden and his recruits clash against the dark forces of Outworld. Chronicling the tournament and the interweaving storylines of the most beloved Kombatants, ngorians also will learn of the complex relationship between Liu Kang and Kung Lao and revisit the complicated family dynamic of Kitana and Mileena. The epic battle for EarthRealm has finally begun!
Directed By KEVIN TANCHAROEN (“Mortal Kombat: Legacy”), Series Stars HARRY SHUM, JR. (“Glee”), CASPER VAN DIEN (“Starship Troopers”), BRIAN TEE (“The Wolverine”), IAN ANTHONY DALE (“Hawaii Five-O”), and CARY TAGAWA (“Mortal Kombat”).
It’s been announced that the entire second season of Mortal Kombat: Legacy will be released next week on September 26th, exclusively on Machinima.
