Mortal Kombat: Legacy Season II is the follow-up to the 2011 live-action series directed by Kevin Tancharoen. With the debut trailer released back in February, the series can finally look forward to a confirmed premiere in September!
Legacy II star Mark Dacascos leaked the schedule through a Facebook update posted to his official fan account. The cast and crew were treated to a special screening of the series, last night. Brian Tee and Casper Van Dien were also in attendance and shared photos via Twitter.

Legacy II will continue the saga begun with the first series: introducing Liu Kang (Tee), Kung Lao (Dacascos) and Shang Tsung (Cary Hiroyuki-Tagawa) as fueding stakes in the struggle of the Mortal Kombat tournament.
The series is loosely based on the plot of the original game(s), with some significant liberties. Brian Tee discussed the new, conflicted interpretation of his Liu Kang in an April interview. The archetypal martial arts hero will be among the most altered of the characters appearing in the series.
Casper Van Dien leads a list of new additions to the cast, starring as Johnny Cage opposite Dan Southworth (Kenshi), David Lee McInnis (Raiden), John Wusah (Bi-Han), Harry Shum (Sub-Zero), Michelle Lee (Mileena), Eric Jacobus (Stryker) and Kim Do Nguyen (Ermac). Ian Anthony Dale and Samantha Jo return as Scorpion and Kitana.
Mortal Kombat: Legacy II will be available freely via YouTube host Machinima. Get the first official look via the previously released Legacy II debut trailer! Discuss Legacy episodes, news and much more in the Media & Merchandise forum.
