The Legend of Vox Machina season 2 Officially Confirmed

February 18, 2022

The first season of The Legend of Vox Machina concluded with 12 episodes. Now, everyone is looking forward to the show’s second season. Well, you’d be delighted to know that the new D&D series has already been renewed for season 2.

Between the likes of Demon Slayer, Attack on Titan, and the recently premiered The Legend of Vox Machina, animated content is dominating the global entertainment conversation.

The latter series, The Legend of Vox Machina, is a new Dungeons and Dragons-inspired show from the hugely popular Critical Role team.

Following a ground-breaking Kickstarter campaign, the series finally premiered last month on Amazon Prime Video. Besides incredible animation and voice-acting, the show had so much to offer in terms of story. So, it’s no wonder that fans want more episodes of the Legend of Vox Machina right away.

The Legend of Vox Machina season Confirmed

It’s good news for fans of The Legend of Vox Machina; the series will return for a second television season on Amazon Prime Video.

When Amazon Studios first announced the acquisition of the international streaming rights for the new D&D series, they revealed that a two-season order was placed.

Two-season orders are quite rare within the modern entertainment industry, with series only receiving them when the parent company sees the potential for future content.

In a statement reported by Variety, the head of Amazon Studios, Jennifer Salke, said that the platform was “thrilled to work with the whole team to bring ‘The Legend of Vox Machina,’ and new Critical Role series, to our Prime Video customers.”

“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!” – Sam Riegel and Travis Willingham, via Variety.

At the time of writing, a release date for The Legend of Vox Machina season 2 has not been shared by either Amazon Studios or Critical Role. However, it has been reported that production on the second season has already started.

The main villain for season 2 might have been teased…

The first season of The Legend of Vox Machina may have only just premiere, with only three episodes being currently available to stream, but there are already hints being made for the season 2 villain.

In the opening episodes, our heroes discover a wall with four magical stones embedded within it. These stones represent the Chroma Conclave, a group of dragons who are hell-bent on taking over the world.

The group includes Brimscythe but also includes Thordak the Cinder King (the red dragon), Raishan the Diseased Deceiver (the green dragon), Umbrasyl the Hope Devourer (the black dragon), and Vorugal the Frigid Doom (the white dragon).

Depictions of the Chroma Conclave can also be seen in Krieg’s hidden office, where five dragon head symbols can be spotted.

Fans of Critical Role will be well-aware of the Conclave, with the group likely being teased this early as a hint at the main villain in season 2.

Fans Loved the First Season of The Legend of Vox Machina

Fans of Critical Role, as well as the wider Dungeons and Dragons community, knew that The Legend of Vox Machina would become a global sensation as soon as the series was announced.

However, even the most optimistic fans will have been taken aback by the popularity and hype that the new show is experiencing with fans around the world, not just in North America.

After a total of 12 episodes, The Legend of Vox Machina Season 1 is scoring an 81% on Metacritic, 8.7/10 on IMDB, with an average audience rating of 94% on Rotten Tomatoes – although the ‘Tomatometer’ score is incredibly sitting at a perfect 100%.

Fans on Twitter expressed their positive feelings on the first season. As soon as the final batch of episodes dropped on Prime Video, the community went online to demand the next season of this spectacular show. Moreover, after the success of Legend of Vox Machina, several fans would definitely watch Critical Role if they haven’t already.
