Netflix has been knocking it out of the park when it comes to animated adaptations of popular gaming franchises recently – with League of Legends adaptation Arcane proving a particular hit with fans when it launched at the tail end of 2021.
And another series that was popular in its debut run last year was Dota: Dragon's Blood, which is now making a return for season two in 2022.
Based on the Dota (Defence of the Ancients) games, the series is an epic fantasy that follows the exploits of Davion, a Dragon Knight who has his soul merged with that of an elder dragon and embarks on a quest to stop the demon Terrorblade from killing all dragons.

Dota: Dragon's Blood season 2 plot
The first season ended with a number of different cliffhangers, and we'd expect these to be addressed in the new episodes.
For one, the Invoker looks set to enact revenge on Goddess Selemene after cornering her at the end of Book one, while archvillain Terrorblade is likely obtain some more Eldwurm Souls having acquired the Earth Soul in the previous run.
Meanwhile season one saw Davion struggling to control his newfound Slyark powers, and the second run will probably follow him as he begins to come to terms with them and use them against Terrorblade.
