Forgotten ‘90s Series Mortal Kombat: Conquest Now Streaming On Max

No Comments

A mostly forgotten relic from the ‘90s has emerged once again on streaming. The 1998 TV show Mortal Kombat: Conquest is now available to stream on Max. This series was one of the first live-action video game adaptations to air on television, just as Hollywood was starting to embrace video games in a meaningful way. The show only lasted one season though and has largely been relegated to obscurity ever since. Until now that is. 

The show recently re-emerged on Max, with all 22 episodes of the one and only season available to subscribers. The series serves as a prequel to the original Mortal Kombat video game. It was developed by Juan Carlos Coto and was produced by New Line Television. It only aired in syndication and was never officially picked up by a single network. The series followed in the footsteps of the 1995 Mortal Kombat movie and its sequel, 1997’s Mortal Kombat: Annihilation. 

Here is the synopsis for Mortal Kombat: Conquest. 

“Earth will live or die on the martial arts skills of its greatest warriors in the sacred Mortal Kombat tournament. In each of us there burns the soul of a warrior. And in every generation, a few are chosen to prove it. Centuries ago, in a time of darkness and fury, that fate befell three strangers – a monk, Kung Lao; an exiled guard, Siro; and the beautiful thief Taja. With guidance from the Thunder God Rayden, this unlikely trio will have to defend Earth Realm from the evil forces of Outworld by fighting for their lives, fighting for their honor, and fighting for their realm in a tournament called Mortal Kombat!

The cast for the series includes Paolo Montalban as Kung Lao, Daniel Bernhardt as Siro, Kristanna Loken as Taja, Tracy Douglas as Vorpax, and Bruce Locke as Shang Tsung, with Jeffrey Meek as Raiden and Shao Kahn. 

25 years later, the franchise is flourishing. Not only do we have a sequel to 2021’s Mortal Kombat movie on the way, but Mortal Kombat 1 recently launched for console and PC. The game serves as a reboot of the long-running fighting game series and has been met with solid reviews. We’ve also had recent animated movies, such as Mortal Kombat Legends: Snow Blind. It’s a good time to enjoy MK, it seems. 

Mortal Kombat Conquest is now streaming on Max.
