Riot Games has announced the release date for its animated show “Arcane,” showing exclusively on Netflix.

Arcane was first teased back in October of 2019 and has been long-awaited by the fans of the League of Legends universe. The show will follow the various stories and lore hidden throughout Piltover, a city that is the birthplace of some of League of Legends’ oldest champions. Some of the more familiar names include Jayce, Orianna, Vi, and Caitlyn.

When will Arcane premiere?

On Sept. 25 the official Twitter account of Arcane revealed when the show would be available for fans to tune into. The adventures of Piltover will be broken up into three acts with three episodes in each Act for a total of nine episodes. Arcane episodes one through three will premiere on Nov. 6 at 7 p.m. PT. The next three episodes will be released with Act 2 on Nov. 13. Then, to finish the series off with Act 3, the remaining episodes will release on Nov. 20.

“Every legend has a beginning,” said Arcane on Twitter when releasing the official trailer for the show. “Welcome friend, to the world of #Arcane. Watch the first official trailer for Arcane now, coming to Netflix November 6.”

With the first set of episodes preparing at 7 p.m. PT, we can assume that the following Acts will release at the same time as the first. However, the Arcane account did not reveal what time the two other Acts would release. Additionally, all three Acts will air every Saturday in November. That way fans will be able to remember what day of the week their show comes on.

Where to watch Arcane

Arcane is an animated show Riot Games is publishing through Netflix. Anyone with a US Netflix account can watch the collaboration when it debuts. Riot Games has not made it clear if Arcane will premiere on all Netflix accounts across the world, however.

Some Netflix shows are only available in certain countries. There is no direct answer for fans living outside of the US, but hopefully, Riot Games will release more information regarding who can watch Arcane on Netflix in the near future.
