A second season of the hit live-action web series Mortal Kombat: Legacy is currently in production in Los Angeles and will debut worldwide in Q2 2013 exclusively on Machinima. Based on the best-selling “Mortal Kombat” videogame franchise, Kevin Tancharoen (Mortal Kombat: Legacy) returns to direct and co-write Mortal Kombat: Legacy 2 alongside writers Josh Baizer and Marshall Johnson (Dead Loss).

The first season of Mortal Kombat: Legacy was one of the most-viewed web series of 2011 with more than 60 million views to date on Machinima. In the second season the saga continues as Liu Kang and Ermac join the ranks of fighters introduced in the first season of the web series including Kenshi, Kung Lao, Kuai Lang, Stryker, Kitana, Mileena, Johnny Cage, Scorpion and Sub Zero. This new season will uncover the rivalries and histories of these fierce warriors as Raiden and his recruits clash against the dark forces of Outworld. The epic battle for Earthrealm has finally begun!

"Fans are in for a real treat with the second season of Mortal Kombat: Legacy," said Tancharoen. "With added visual effects and storylines that dive deeper into our warriors as they make their way to the tournament, we’re taking this series to a whole new level. I'm really looking forward to showing fans the first clip during the Streamy Awards on February 17."

Mortal Kombat: Legacy 2 features stars from television and film - many of whom have real-world martial arts experience. The cast includes Harry Shum, Jr. ("Glee") as the warlord adviser Kuai Liang, Casper Van Dien (Starship Troopers) as martial arts film actor Johnny Cage, Brian Tee (The Wolverine) as Shaolin Monk Liu Kang, Mark Dacascos (Cradle 2 the Grave) as Kung Lao - a close friend of Liu Kang, Ian Anthony Dale (“Hawaii Five-O”) returns as the resurrected ninja Scorpion, and reprising his role he made famous in the Mortal Kombat theatrical release - Cary Tagawa as the powerful, arrogant sorcerer Shang Tsung.

“Machinima and our audience have been eagerly awaiting the next chapter in this series, and I’m thrilled to announce that 'Mortal Kombat: Legacy 2' will return to its original home on Machinima,” said Allen DeBevoise, Chairman, Co-Founder, and CEO of Machinima. “We have become a destination for episodic narrative series thanks in part to the first season of 'Mortal Kombat: Legacy,' and we look forward to breaking new ground with this much anticipated new season.”

Production services are provided by Bandito Brothers, and Hayden Roush and Marina Stabile serve as Line Producers. The series is written by Josh Baizer, Marshall Johnson and Kevin Tancharoen.
