During the NYCC panel, Sam Reigel, the voice of much-beloved bard Scanlan Shorthalt, confessed that adapting an arc with the Conclave was a challenge. To the crowd’s cheering excitement, he revealed, “To try to adapt it to a single season is a daunting task. We were trying to find out if it was possible. Thankfully, we got greenlit for season 3.”
As confirmed by Reigel, the Conclave storyline will continue on into the third season, but there will be plenty to enjoy in season 2 before we get there! Season 2 of the hit Dungeons and Dragons animation will be released on Prime Video in January.
The Legends of Vox Machina is based on the first Critical Role campaign, a web series best explained in the cast’s own words.
“[The Legends of Vox Machina] is a long-running web series in which our group of nerdy ass voice actors use tabletop roleplaying game mechanics as the medium to build a long-form improvisational story in the vast and rich fantasy world of Exandria. The players are guided through the world by Matthew Mercer, an incredibly experienced Game Master. Essentially, this story is like a four-hour-long improvised episode of television, with each campaign focusing on its own set of characters within the world.”
That “group of nerdy ass voice actors” includes Matthew Mercer (Overwatch, Attack on Titan), Travis Willingham (Avengers Assemble, Spider-Man), Sam Riegel (Ace Attorney, Duck Tales), Marisha Ray (Lego DC Super-Villains, Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire), Liam O’Brien (World of Warcraft, Naruto), Laura Bailey (Fruits Basket, Monster High), Taliesin Jaffe (Mr. Mom, World of Warcraft), and Ashley Johnson (The Last of Us, Blindspot).
Notable guest stars include David Tennant (Good Omens, Doctor Who), Felicia Day (Mystery Science Theater 3000, Supernatural), Stephanie Beatriz (Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Encanto), Gina Torres (9-1-1: Lone Star, Firefly), and Khary Payton (The Walking Dead, General Hospital).
