While progress on the next Mortal Kombat film has come to almost a standstill, fans of the Kevin Tancharoen created and directed Mortal Kombat: Legacy have had much more to look forward to. The Machinima Inc. and Warner Bros. Digital Distribution webseries proved it’s worth capturing the souls of 60 million viewers in the first 9 episode season.

The wait is almost over. The second season is almost upon us.

Premiering at last night’s 3rd Annual Streamy Awards, to recognize and honor excellence in online video, fans of the series were treated to the first teaser to Mortal Kombat: Legacy Season two. Directed by Kevin Tancharoen, and cowritten by Josh Baizer and Marshall Johnson, the second season delves more into the characters before the events of the original game, while blending martial arts with the Mortal Kombat mythos. Honestly, Kevin and everyone involved stepped up their game for this season and it really appears that it could pay off later on in the year.

Check out the teaser below:

One of the nice things about Mortal Kombat: Legacy, this season, appears to be the direction its taking… and it’s being well received by all. Watching Liu Kang, played by Brian Tee, as a member of Outworld’s force compared to his melancholy hero role from the original Mortal Kombat of nearly two decades ago is a surprise turn for the character, a real attention grabber. Speaking of casting, seeing Cary Tagawa reprise his role as Shang Tsung, even if it’s not another feature film, brings back all kinds of nightmares and newcomers Harry Shum, Jr., Casper Van Dien and Mark Dacascos are a welcome fit to the group. So far they’ve already outdone themselves.

How this all plays out will really depend on our reaction in the coming months, maybe it could even help speed up production of that Mortal Kombat movie we’re all waiting for?

Kevin Tancharoen envisioned his short, Mortal Kombat: Rebirth, with a Hollywood adaptation in mind. While Warner Bros. didn’t quite see it his way, they did fund what eventually became known as the first season of Mortal Kombat: Legacy. The highly successful web series blends the supernatural with a realistic re-imagining of the Mortal Kombat franchise. And we’ve got the first look at season two!

The second season of Mortal Kombat: Legacy started filming back in December and nobody has seen a thing, but thanks to Ian Anthony Dale, who plays Scorpion in both Legacy and Rebirth, we have our first look at the cast in full costume. Check out all your nerd dreams coming true after the jump.
