Buried in the announcement of the launch of Critical Role’s new subscription service, Beacon, is more good news for fans. The third season of the troupe’s Prime Video animated series, The Legend of Vox Machina, is due out this fall. The release window was confirmed on X by Critical Role CEO Travis Willingham. A release date has not been revealed.

Vox Machina refers to the adventuring party featured in Critical Role’s first Dungeons & Dragons actual-play series, which concluded in 2017 after producing hundreds of hours of streaming content shared through Geek & Sundry, Twitch, and YouTube. Its main characters include Grog Strongjaw, Tiberius Stormwind, Scanlan Shorthalt, Keyleth, Vax’ildan, and Vex’ahlia. The first season of the Amazon-produced animated series aired beginning in Jan. 2022, with the second season arriving in Jan. 2023.

Critical Role is also working with Prime Video to adapt its second D&D campaign, named for its adventuring party, The Mighty Nein. That series concluded in June 2021 with some 560 hours of streaming content and features characters such as Caleb Widogast, Veth “Nott the Brave” Brenatto, Jester Lavorre, Fjord, Beauregard Lionett, Mollymauk Tealeaf, and Yasha Nydoorin, among others. Announced in Jan. 2023, the partnership with Amazon also includes a potential for a major motion picture.
