Ahead of the series’ premiere, Linke spoke to Deadline about how the Netflix show serves as a “love letter” to the League community – from Rioters to players.

“I really feel confident in the statement that everyone that works on these things feels like they’re working on the most important thing they’ve ever done in their craft,” he said.

Linke and Yee executive produce alongside Marc Merrill, Brandon Beck, Jane Chung and Thomas Vu.

Arcane marks a first for Riot Games as the studios’ first foray into television. The series is developed and produced by Riot Games in partnership with Fortiche Productions. Through Riot Games’ deal with Tencent, Arcane premiered on Tencent Video in China.
