The worst team ever is back! Critical Role‘s band of beloved misfits return to screens soon for a second season of The Legend of Vox Machina.

Vox Machina, the chaotic team of wannabe adventurers brought to animated life by Prime Video, are set to resume their mishap-laden escapades on January 20, 2023.

As confirmed by the cast themselves at New York Comic Con this year, Vox Machina will not get a rest after saving Exandria from destruction in season 1. Season 2 will pick up right where they left off and follow the Chroma Conclave storyline from Critical Role — meaning our skilled but occasionally hapless heroes will be called upon to save the world once again.

The new trailer released by Prime Video proves that, as well as confirming that the second season will be no less funny, and the team no less haphazard, than season 1.

There are so many fan favorite moments from Critical Role‘s first campaign displayed in the trailer, it certainly feels as if this one was cut especially for the Critters. From the beard, Zahra and Kashaw, and Kevdak to vestiges, Dr. Dranzel and more Gilmore, the trailer is two minutes and sixteen seconds of excellently presented fan service. It definitely keeps the Critical Role feel that we all loved from season 1.

Check out the trailer below!

Critical Role, the origin of The Legend of Vox Machina, is a web series best explained in the cast’s own words.

“[‘The Legend 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 in season 1 included David Tennant (Good Omens, Doctor Who), Felicia Day (Mystery Science Theater 3000Supernatural), Stephanie Beatriz (Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Encanto), Gina Torres (9-1-1: Lone StarFirefly), and Khary Payton (The Walking Dead, General Hospital).

Season 2’s guest stars were recently announced, bringing even more exciting names into the campaign.

Stay tuned for more news on The Legend of Vox Machina season 2!
