A lengthy cast list has been revealed for Mortal Kombat: Legacy’s
second season, which includes a couple of notable replacements. Matt Mullins, who played Johnny Cage in Season 1, has been replaced by Casper Van Dien
, while Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa
will takeover the role of Shang Tsung from Johnson Phan. Tagawa, of course, played Shang Tsung in the original Mortal Kombat movie and did a stellar job of it.
Elsewhere, it has been announced that Harry Shum Jr.
will play Sub Zero, Brian Tee
will play Liu Kang, Mark Dacascos
takes on the role of Kung Lao, and Ian Anthony Dale
returns to reprise his role as Scorpion from Season 1.We are still waiting on further announcements. A trailer for Season 2 featured a list of characters, which included Kano, Raiden, Sonya, Kitana, Mileena, Jax, Baraka, Stryker, Quan Chi, Ermac and Kenshi. We already saw Sonya Blade (Jeri Ryan
), Jax (Michael Jai White
), Raiden (Ryan Robbins
), Kano (Darren Shahlavi
), and Kitana (Samantha Tihia
) in Season 1, so the question is, “who will be resuming their roles?”
The second season will introduce new characters, uncover the rivalries and histories of the cast, and see Raiden and his recruited fighters take on the forces of Outworld as the battle for Earthrealm gets underway.
Kevin Tancharoen returns to co-write and direct the series. He is keeping busy with Mortal Kombat themed projects considering he is also on-board for the rebooted movie. Mortal Kombat: Legacy Season 2 will be hosted on Machinima in the second quarter of 2013.
