Comic-Con 2012: ‘Mortal Kombat: Legacy’ Season Two is Happening
For fans of the ‘Mortal Kombat’ video games, the ‘Mortal Kombat: Legacy‘ web series was a breath of fresh air. Handsomely produced and released online through Machinima.com’s YouTube Channel in 2011, the nine-episode series was a fascinating experiment in creating content for an online audience and proof that this absurd (in a good way) universe could work on screen (the less said about the two films from the ’90s, the better). Today, the series director and producer Kevin Tancharoen announced that the ‘Mortal Kombat: Legacy’ will return for a second season.
The news comes via a silly announcement video, which features a quick montage of moments from season one, followed by a few words from Tancharoen himself. Outside of the actual “Yep, we’re working on a second season right now!” thing, the video doesn’t have much to offer in terms of a new content. Tancharoen confirms that the new season will focus on the Mortal Kombat tournament itself, with the backstories of the first season acting as a prologue to the main event. That should be good news for the fans who wanted to see more fighting and limb-ripping and heart-rendering in their ‘Mortal Kombat’ web series.
The second half of the video is a list of the characters who will appear in season two. It’s a lot of names, but this is a series with an enormous roster of fighters, so this is just the tip of the iceberg. Gamers in the audience: what do you think?
