The lights are on
When Kevin Tancharoen quietly released the first video in his Mortal Kombat: Legacy series last year, many speculated that it was official. Not only did the video sport high production quality, but the inclusion of actors Jeri Ryan and Michael Jai White drove home that this wasn't some average fan film.
What followed were nine episodes exploring many of the series' most popular characters. Some new takes on the lore, including a compelling and disturbing look at Raiden, made Mortal Kombat: Legacy's first season memorable. More importantly, Warner Bros. was on board.
Today gives us a new trailer for the upcoming second season. Familiar characters, including Kitana, Mileena, Scorpion, and Sub-Zero, are joined by Smoke, Kenshi, Liu Kang, and Kung Lao. The wait won't be long. Season two, hosted by Machinima, begins on Sept. 26.

OMG, can't wait to see more of this! I loved his alternate takes on the series' character.
This is how you make a Mortal Kombat film/series. I surprised I didn't know about this series, I need to catch up!
This looks so sick, can't wait!! I do hope the episodes were longer, they didn't do the show justice with the limited amount of time for each episode.
Alas, probably better than any movie. . .
Liu Kang looks SIICCK!!!!!! :D
finally... can't wait for it to start again... been waiting too long. too bad so many gamers out there don't appreciate this kind of work... it's a shame, really. yeah it's not a full production and it's online... but those fans who really cherish this series will see this as something of great value, dedication, and just hands down awesome entertainment.
omg, amazing! why couldn't the actuall full blown movies pull off anything close to this?
Wait just a f***ing minute...Shang Tsung is played by the same man who played him in the MOVIE?!
That guy who plays Scorpion has some crazy eyes.
I never finished the first season, but this is looking pretty good. Maybe it's time to catch up...
I come back to you now, at the turn of the tide...
Well, looks like I'm popping in my Blu ray of the first movie this weekend.
This looks really good. I need to watch the first season now.
The first season was FANTASTIC!! My favorite was the spin on Raiden, along with the Scorpion and Sub Zero stories.
It has begun!
I got the first season and I loved it...this trailer makes my black heart happy.
