Last fall, New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. announced that Kevin Tancharoen had signed on to direct a new big-screen, live-action adaptation of Mortal Kombat. This came after the success of the live-action web series Tancharoen created, which starred Michael Jai White as Jax for a few episodes, and which we featured on this site in its entirety.

“Mortal Kombat: Legacy” Michael Jai White

Last fall, New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. announced that Kevin Tancharoen had signed on to direct a new big-screen, live-action adaptation of Mortal Kombat. This came after the success of the live-action web series Tancharoen created, which starred Michael Jai White as Jax for a few episodes, and which we featured on this site in its entirety.

But before that big screen adaptation happens, you should know that, over the weekend, director Tancharoen announced that a second season of the web series based on the popular game, had been ordered and was on the way.

He revealed this in a video, which you can watch below; in it, he also reveals what season 2 will comprise of, and what characters will be in it. I can tell you that Jax will be back; although he doesn't say whether Michael Jai White (or any of the cast from season 1) will return to play the roles they played in the first season.

Watch the video announcement below:
