Season 2 of Mortal Kombat: Legacy is a go, watch all episodes here
Following the model put in place by some of Netflix's own original programming like "Orange is the New Black," series director Kevin Tancharoen has put out the entire second season of Machinima's "Mortal Kombat: Legacy" all at once, so fans won't have to wait around for each new episode to release. Hell, have a marathon viewing if you like, we're not here to judge.
Said Tancharoen to Nerd Reactor, "...we are releasing all of them at the same time because I think there's kind of a trend now with this whole Netflix and binge watching thing. I personally have watched House of Cards in two days, and a lot of their other original series I've watched like five episodes back to back. I think that Machinima wants to test the waters when it comes to doing original series on their channel in that way. Honestly, let's be real, these are ten minute episodes. I feel like it's unfair to make fans wait a week for another ten minutes. It would be one thing if they were hour-long episodes. Then a week is warranted, but because they're ten minutes and when they're all strung out it's around 80 minutes, it gives fans a chance to watch it all at the same time. I think that's the way to go."
According to Tancharoen, the first season of Legacy had over 60 million views, so there's obviously a fanbase for this original webseries. After some character introductions in the first season, the second will focus on the tournament itself.
In terms of what fans could look forward to, Tancharoen talked about some of his own favorite aspects of the new season:
"Well I'm very excited to continue the Scorpion/Sub-Zero mythology because I think that's a lot of peoples' favorite mythology and favorite characters. Beyond that the one I was really excited to do was take a character that I didn't necessarily gravitate towards, and completely shift him. And that's Liu Kang. In season one, I was very adamant about not doing Liu Kang just simply because we've seen him before, whether it's from the first movie or the sequel. He's always kind of been the main protagonist. So I said 'You know what? It would kind of feel weird to do it again.' Which is why I made Scorpion the star in my short film because I was like, 'Let's do the antihero. That's going to be a lot of fun.' So in the same respect when it comes to Liu Kang, I said, 'The only version of Liu Kang that I would feel comfortable doing is if the first time we see him, he's drinking at a bar by himself, and he's wasted.' And then that opened up a whole conversation on what happened to Liu Kang and that's kind of where we went with the series. So in the first episode, he's at a bar drinking tequila by himself. And then he kind of slowly realizes what has happened to the Shaolin monk that we always thought was a boy scout and I think people will like. I hope. I hope people will like it."
That being said, onward to drunk Liu Kang! The first episode is embedded below, set to launch into each new episode. Just in case of any hiccups, there's also a list of links to each episode.
