mortal-kombat

It was revealed at the San Diego Comic-Con this past July that writer/director Kevin Tancharoen would return for a second season of the Mortal Kombat: Legacy web series. “I can break the silence and tell you guys what it’s going to be about. It’s going to be about the actual Mortal Kombat tournament this time,” said Tancharoen.

Bloody Disgusting has just learned exclusively that the new series will tell the origins of various characters from Bi Han to Kuai Liang. While we’ll learn of the backgrounds of the various cast of characters, we’ll also see them find them fighting for the right to control the Earthrealm. Shooting begins November 28 in Los Angeles.

Season One of the 9-episode series from Tancharoen (“Mortal Kombat: Rebirth”) expands the mythos of the popular Mortal Kombat video game franchise and currently has garnered millions of hits on YouTube.

“Mortal Kombat: Legacy” takes place before the events of the original game and tells the background stories of several characters from the franchise, culminating in their reasons for participating in the upcoming tenth Mortal Kombat tournament, on which the first game was based. The episodes in the anthology are non-linear with minimal continuity, and each devoted to the story of a specific character or characters.-Wiki
