Mortal Kombat: Conquest

New this week Trivia: Was cancelled after its first season despite good ratings due to higher-than-expected production costs. A follow-up comic was planned based on the episodes for season two that were never produced, but was never published. In the unproduced second season/follow-up comic, all of the heroes outside of Kung Lao would be resurrected by the Elder Gods, who also reverse Kahn's takeover of Earth due to him cheating. The show would end with Earth unable to defend itself due to Kung Lao's death, leading to the beginning of the first Mortal Kombat movie, with Earth having lost nine tournaments in a row, and Lao's descendant Liu Kang being forced to defend the world.

New this week Trivia: This series co-stars Kristanna Loken, whom appeared in "Terminator 3" alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger. Schwarzenegger was part of the inspiration for Kano in the original "Mortal Kombat" video-games. Loken would later go on to star in several other video-game adaptations, including "In the Name of the King" and "BloodRayne", both directed by the infamous Uwe Boll.

New this week Trivia: The word "Conquest" in the title was sometimes spelled with a "C" and other times spelled with a "K" in the credits and advertising. Though since it went off the air, the spelling with "C" became the "official" title of the series.
