A second season of the anime DOTA: Dragon's Blood is reportedly in development according to Netflix.
The anime adaptation of Valve’s wildly-popular multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) video game franchise DOTA 2, follows the story of Davion, a renowned Dragon Knight devoted to wiping the scourge from the face of the world. But as he embarks on a mission, he eventually finds himself embroiled in events much larger than he could have ever imagined.
The news was confirmed by the MOBA game's official Twitter account, with the second season dubbed 'Book II' already "in the works."

For those who want a different kind of DOTA fix, Netflix has also added Valve’s 2014 Free to Play documentary, which has been described as the "definitive e-sports film" to its library. The documentary tells the story of three professional gamers from around the world who entered and competed in the first million dollar prize DOTA 2 International Tournament back in 2011.
According to Valve, E-Sports has surged in popularity to become one of the most widely-practiced forms of competitive sport today. The million dollar tournament changed the landscape of the gaming world and for those elite players at the top of their craft, nothing would ever be the same again. Produced by Valve, the film documents the challenges and sacrifices required of players to compete at the highest level.
