It has been over a year since Season 1 of Mortal Kombat was first released and now it continues in Season 2. Season 1 really focused on the core characters and their background leading up to how some of them will be introduced to the Mortal Kombat tournament. For the most part each episode begins with a flashback to a particular character. We see how the original protagonist Liu Kang changes sides and fights against earthrealm. Being a fan of the Mortal Kombat franchise I can honestly say that the writers did a good job retelling the backstory for a number of these characters. However not all the characters are flushed out as much as others. Characters like Raiden and Shang Tsung are really only present to be extended cameos. I felt this was a bit disappointing despite the fact that in Season 1 Raiden had his own episode to explain things and they did not take advantage of here.
