The first season of “Mortal Kombat: Legacy” was pretty solid fun, and director Kevin Tancharoen is back for a second season of the web series, taking the action to Outworld, and adding some new performers to the cast. Starting with a couple of kid ninjas, a familiar catchphrase, and barreling onwards to a Johnny Rico as Johnny Cage, it looks like season two will be a hoot, too.
You can check out the trailer and official synopsis after the jump.
From the official synopsis:
The countdown to the second season of “Mortal Kombat: Legacy” has officially begun. Fans can get their first look at the upcoming season, now available on Machinima (here). From Warner Bros. Digital Distribution, “Mortal Kombat: Legacy 2” is the follow-up to “Mortal Kombat: Legacy” — one of the most-viewed web series of all time with more than 60 million views to date on Machinima. The footage showcases the non-stop action of the continuing saga as Liu Kang and Ermac join the ranks of fighters introduced in the hugely successful first season. The trailer features first glimpses into the rivalries and histories of these fierce warriors as Raiden and his recruits clash against the dark forces of Outworld in the epic battle for Earthrealm!
