The second season of Mortal Kombat: Legacy, one of the most successful web series to be based upon any video game ever, is almost upon us. Mortal Kombat: Legacy II will make its debut on Sept. 26, via Machinima's YouTube channel.
Once again, the series is being helmed by Kevin Tancharoen. The first Mortal Kombat: Legacy was borne from a short he created, which served as a proof of concept for a live action MK-reboot. It's not a stretch to say that it perhaps did more to revive interest in the Mortal Kombat that any of the actual games in recent years.
Though the highly successful, back to basics, most recent installment of the game was in production well before the first web series had hit the web, though that game's popularity was certainly bolstered by the show nonetheless.
According to the PR, the cast for season two will include Harry Shum, Jr. (Glee), Casper Van Dien (Starship Troopers), Brian Tee (The Wolverine) and Ian Anthony Dale (Hawaii Five-O). And let's not forget Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, reprising the role of Shang Tsung, which he played in the original, big screen adaptation.
Now here's the wacky part: taking a cue from Netflix and "… the current hot trade of binge viewing, all 10 episodes will be released simultaneously."
GET OVER HERE!
