When Riot Games released its League of Legends animated series “Arcane” on Netflix last week, it was met with incredible fanfare and rave reviews. Act 2 of “Arcane” seems to have made the most of that momentum, reaching even higher heights than the first batch of episodes did.
While Act 1 of the series reached No. 1 on the global Netflix TV charts on the back of 38 No. 1 rankings in individual countries, Act 2 has actually surpassed that mark.
The series is back in the No. 1 spot among all TV shows on the worldwide Netflix charts, placing ahead of “Squid Game,” “Narcos: Mexico” and “You.” Only this time, that global ranking is fueled by No. 1 rankings in 52 individual markets, 14 more than after Act 1.
Furthermore, the previous three episodes of “Arcane” debuted at No. 8 in the United States, No. 6 in Australia, No. 2 in Canada and No. 3 in South Korea. The series made heavy gains in all four of those markets with Act 2. In the latest chart update, “Arcane” now sits No. 3 among all TV shows on Netflix in Australia, No. 2 in the United States and No. 1 in both Canada and South Korea.

After “Arcane” premiered with its first act (Episodes 1-3), the series debuted at No. 1 on the charts for 38 different countries. This was good enough to rank the series at No. 1 on the global chart. Act 2 of “Arcane” raised the bar even further, pushing the show to the top of the charts in 52 different markets:
- Costa Rica

With the first two acts of “Arcane” coming in as smashing successes for Riot Games, animation studio Fortiche and Netflix, it will be interesting to see how Act 3 of the series performs on the charts. The final three episodes of “Arcane” release to Netflix on Nov. 13.
