The most watched series on YouTube is officially coming back! Mortal Kombat: Legacy will return for a second season with director Kevin Tancharoen, who announced the news the only way that would make sense -- in an online video! [via IGN]
Details of release remain scarce, but the announcement comes with confirmation that the second series will deal primarily with the events of the Mortal Kombat tournament itself!
Drawing on feedback from fans, Tancharoen notes the intent to present a greater amount of fighting, action and effects in the second season. Leaving little to chance, a cavalcade of characters have also already been confirmed to have some involvement in the tournament series!
Jax, Sonya Blade, Kano, Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Quan Chi, Kitana, Mileena, Baraka, Stryker, Raiden, Johnny Cage and Shang Tsung will return from the first series. Promising new additions include: Liu Kang, Kung Lao, Ermac and Kenshi. No news on casting.
Taking to Twitter, Tancharoen has confirmed that the new Legacy series will have no impact on the feature film widely reported to be in early stages of pre-production. He clarifies that recently released excerpts from a script are from the feature film, not Legacy. Responding to questions, he also goes so far as to state Kabal will be in the film. There have been no further comments on plot rumors released in June [full story].
