Mortal Kombat: Legacy II is directed by Kevin Tancharoen and co-written by Josh Baizer and Marshall Johnson with a plot that picks up from where the first season left off.
"In the highly anticipated second season, the saga continues as Liu Kang and Ermac join the ranks of fighters introduced in the series’ first season, including Kenshi, Kung Lao, Kuai Lang, Stryker, Kitana, Mileena, Johnny Cage, Scorpion and Sub- Zero," a statement announcing the series debut reads. "This new season uncovers the rivalries and histories of these fierce warriors as Raiden and his recruits clash against the dark forces of Outworld. Chronicling the tournament and the interweaving storylines of the most beloved Kombatants, fans also will learn of the complex relationship between Liu Kang and Kung Lao and revisit the complicated family dynamic of Kitana and Mileena. The epic battle for EarthRealm has finally begun!"
Season one of Mortal Kombat: Legacy ran for nine episodes that were 10 to 13 minutes in length and produced more than 70 million views overall.
According to the release, 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," and Mark Dacascos (Cradle 2 the Grave) as "Kung Lao" - a close friend of "Liu Kang." Additionally, Ian Anthony Dale (Hawaii Five-O) returns as the resurrected ninja “Scorpion,” and Cary Tagawa reprises the role he made famous in the Mortal Kombat theatrical release as the powerful, arrogant sorcerer "Shang Tsung."
