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.

I really hope they dig deeper into Raiden's story. It was by far the most interesting part of MK Legacy. Giving it a gritty, realistic approach was a very good idea and as Christopher Nolan proved with Batman Begins and it's sequels, could really become a game changer. All in all the entire miniseries was excellent and one of my favorite Blu Rays to show my friends who grew up with the series and had never heard of Legacy. Keep on keepin on Kevin Tancharoen!
Well, it's gotta be better than what Hollywood did to the property.
Now thats Mortal Combat! Seems to be better than that of the 1st!
Felt like so long ago, but the 1st season was a blast.
