Anthology series adapted from the Mortal Kombat video game franchise in which the first season is a prequel to the original game. It presented background stories of several characters from the series and explained their reasoning for participating in the 10th Mortal Kombat tournament. The second season covered the tournament itself.
The premise of the show originated director Kevin Tancharoen's short film titled Mortal Kombat: Rebirth. It was originally pitched to Warner Bros. Pictures, Midway Games and New Line Cinema, but was rejected despite positive fan reception.fra
