Critical Role Cartoon Heads To Amazon Prime Video

Amazon ordered 24 episodes over two seasons.


The fan-favorite series Critical Role will be hitting Amazon Prime Video in a big way. The streaming service has picked up the animated show The Legend of Vox Machina for two seasons.

Critical Role, a show where voice actors play Dungeons & Dragons, are taking their adventures to Amazon Prime Video as The Legend of Vox Machina has been picked up by the streaming service for a total of 24 episodes, split between two seasons. 10 of said episodes were funded through a Kickstarter for Legend of Vox Machina, raising over $11.3 million for the first season.

The new series will follow the adventures of b-list drunkards who go on a quest to save their world from the evils of their realm, including mystic forces and horrifying monsters. You can check out the animated intro for the series below.

"We were absolutely floored by the level of enthusiasm we received on the Kickstarter campaign, and now we can deliver exactly what the fans wanted, and more," said Sam Riegel and Travis Willingham, cast members and executive producers of the series. "Teaming with Prime Video to deliver the series to fans across the globe is exciting and surreal--and we're psyched to be able to tell even more stories with not just one, but two 12-episode seasons!"

A release date for the upcoming series was not given during this announcement. However, The Legend of Vox Machina will star some familiar Critical Role faces, including Laura Bailey, Taliesin Jaffe, Ashley Johnson, Liam O’Brien, Matthew Mercer, Marisha Ray, Sam Riegel, and Travis Willingham, all of which are reprising their roles from the series.
