Netflix has released a new trailer for Esoteric, his next series based on the League of Legends universe, and also revealed when the show premieres: November 6. But you won’t be able to watch it all Esoteric that day, as Netflix plans to release the season in three separate “acts,” each consisting of three episodes released a week after the last. This means that the first act will be released on November 6, the next on November 13, and the last on November 20.
Esoteric was first announced in 2019, although League of Legends developer Riot Games has postponed the series until 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In May, news broke that Netflix had picked up the show and would debut in the fall.
Earlier this week, Netflix and Riot revealed some of the arcane voice casting. This list is titled by Hailee Steinfeld, who you might recognize as Emily Dickinson in Apple TV Plus’ Dickinson and Kate Bishop in the upcoming Disney Plus series Hawk Eye. In Esoteric, Steinfeld will play Vi, one of the League of Legends‘playable champions.
Esoteric is the latest expansion for Riot League of Legends franchise, which includes a mobile spin-off, a board game, and comics. It is also the last video game series to appear on Netflix, joining other franchises like The witcher and Pokemon.
