Dota 2 developer Valve Software announced on Monday (19 April) that DOTA: Dragon's Blood, the official Dota 2 anime on Netflix, will be getting a second season, which is already in production.

DOTA: Dragon's Blood premiered on 25 March and follows the adventures of Dota 2 heroes Davion the Dragon Knight and Mirana the Princess of the Moon. 

In the show, Davion struggles with his newfound powers to turn into a dragon given to him by the eldwurm Slyrak. He then accompanies Mirana, who was exiled from her home in the Nightsilver Woods, in her quest to recover the sacred lotuses of her goddess Selemene that were stolen in her watch.

Other Dota 2 heroes, such as Luna the Moon Rider, the Invoker, and Terrorblade, also star in the show alongside a number of other characters that are either entirely new or were never seen before in the Dota universe.

The first Book, or season, of DOTA: Dragon's Blood featured eight episodes. While Valve has not revealed any further details about Book II, it is expected to contain the same number of episodes as Book I.

While only Book II has been officially confirmed by Valve, it has been previously revealed by Robert Burnett, the animatic editor for DOTA: Dragon's Blood, that he has worked on a total of 24 episodes for the show, meaning that fans of the show can expect one more season of eight episodes in the future.

DOTA: Dragon's Blood is being produced by Ashley Edward Miller, known for his work in X-Men: First Class, Thor, and Black Sails, in collaboration with Valve and is animated by Studio MIR, the studio behind Avatar: The Legend of Korra and Voltron: Legendary Defender.

If you haven't seen DOTA: Dragon's Blood yet, you can check it out now as the show is available on Netflix worldwide. 

If you're looking for more Dota-related stuff to watch, then the Free to Play documentary has also been made available on Netflix.

First premiering in March 2014, Free to Play follows three professional Dota 2 players in their journey through The International 1(TI1), the first-ever iteration of Dota 2's annual world championship tournament in 2011 that also served as the game's public debut. 

The Netflix version of the documentary notably features an updated end credit sequence. If you don't have Netflix, you can still watch Free to Play on Youtube here.

If that's not enough Dota viewing for you, then you can also check the True Sight series of documentaries primarily focused on the grand finals of the past three iterations of TI. You can check out the most recent episode on the grand finals of TI9 in 2019 between OG and Team Liquid here.
