What is Season 2 about? Some fans had suspected that Riot would tell other stories from the LoL universe in further seasons and maybe even leave Piltover / Zhaun completely behind. However, some scenes in the finale and the teaser reveal that it is still about Vi, Caitlyn, Jinx and the conflict between the two cities, at least for the time being. The spokespersons for these characters have also already confirmed their return.

In the next paragraph there will be spoilers for the entire first season and from the official LoL lore! We summarize what will probably happen in season 2.

Warning: the following paragraph contains spoilers

After Jinx breaks Piltover’s advice at the end of the ninth episode, there will probably be no peace between Zaun and Piltover. Singed is guaranteed to continue the horrific experiments with shimmer – in the last episode he looks at a figure with claws, which is clearly reminiscent of the LoL champion Warwick. Heimerdinger and Ekko should work on time manipulation, at least that would go very well with the official lore. And the Imperium Noxus will probably have an important appearance – as a reminder: familiar faces such as Darius, Draven, Katarina, Swain and Vladimir come from there.
