The Legend of Vox Machina Season 2 Release Date, Cast, Plot, and Everything You Need to Know
Critical Roles and Amazon Studios The first season of The Legend of Vox Machina introduced new viewers to the heroes of Vox Machina, including Vex’ahlia, Vax’ildan, Percival Fredrickstein von Musel Klossowski de Rolo III, Keyleth, Scanlan Shorthalt, Pike Trickfoot, Grog Strongjaw, and one‘s home of Tal’dorei. The new viewers quickly became as interested in the characters and story as the fans who had been watching since
As soon as Amazon bought season one of The Legend of Vox Machina, season two was set in stone. The first season was made possible by a successful Kickstarter campaign. When Amazon decided to air the first ten episodes, they ordered fourteen more episodes.
“Critical Role paved a new way for original digital content with fresh new voices and humor that won them fans all over the world,” said Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios. “Their wildly successful Kickstarter campaign is proof of that” (via Variety). “We’re excited to work with the entire team to bring our Prime Video customers The Legend of Vox Machina and the new Critical Role series.”
In a joint statement, Sam Riegel or Travis Willingham of Critical Role said, “We were blown away by how excited people were about the Kickstarter campaign, and we can give the fans everything they wanted and more.” “Working with Prime Video to get the series to fans all over the world is exciting and surreal, and we’re thrilled to just be able to tell far more stories to not just one, and yet two 12-episode seasons!”
Season 2 of the show based on Dungeons & Dragons will come out on Prime Video in three-episode batches every week, for a total of 12 episodes. In the new series, the heroes and antiheroes of Vox Machina face off against the Chroma Conclave, a powerful group of four dragons that spew ice and acid, have almost impossible-to-break armor and threaten to destroy the world of Exandria.
For Season 1 of “Vox Machina,” the eight main members of Critical Role, who are also the show’s executive producers, had to give a lot of background information. That was largely done to catch viewers up on the misfit group of adventurers, based on Critical Role’s original D&D campaign from 2015.
Once the bad guys were found and dealt with, Sovereign Uriel or the people of Emon praised and hailed our heroes as heroes. But their peace didn’t last long. The Briarwood, Delilah, and Sylas, people from Percy’s past who were painful and dangerous, crossed the path of our heroes. This set off a chain of events that led to revelations, rebellion, revenge, as well as an epic final battle again for the fate of Percy’s ancestral home, Whitestone.
The rough-and-tumble Vox Machina, who this trailer calls “The Worst Team Ever Assembled,” will be back on Amazon Prime Video on January 20 for Season 2. The Legend of Vox Machina’s return to starting 2023 is going to be a welcome one, judging by the trailer. It has just the right amount of dick jokes and beautifully animated fight scenes from the series.
In the last episode of the debut season of The Legend of Vox Machina, “a most terrifying power couple in Exandria” was taken down. This was the first of many arcs that the show would cover in Critical Role’s long-running Dungeons as well as Dragons campaign. But at the end of the episode, dragons can be seen coming close to the city of Emon and getting ready to attack.
This trailer talks about that cliffhanger and shows how scary this dragon siege is. In Season 2, Vox Machina will have to save the world again, this time from a bad group of dragons called the Chroma Conclave, according to a press release.
The Legend of Vox Machina Season 2 Release Date

The Legend of Vox Machina Season 2 Cast
The champions from the initial season will come back, and the voice actors will all play the same roles again. Vex’ahlia and Vax’ildan, played by Laura Bailey (The Last of Us: Part II) and Liam O’Brien (Star Wars: The Bad Batch), are half-elf twins. Marisha Ray is a half-elf druid who goes by the name Keyleth. Ashley Johnson’s character in “The Last of Us,” Pike Trickfoot, is a gnome cleric. Her story was separate from the rest of the group’s.
Grog is a Goliath barbarian, and Travis Willingham gives him a voice (Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order). The first season was mostly about Percival “Percy” de Rolo, a human gunslinger whose voice is done by Taliesin Jaffe (Horizon Forbidden West). Finally but certainly not least, what would a D&D party be without a bard to help fight and make people laugh? Sam Riegel, who played Leo in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, plays the famous critter bard Scanlan Shorthalt again.
There are also voice actors who come back to play supporting roles in the show. Gina Torres (from “Serenity”), Esme Creed-Miles (from “Hanna”), and Stephanie Beatriz (from “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”) are among the guest stars who will be back for season two.
Along with the voice actors who are coming back, many other well-known actors are expected to join the display as either main characters or guest stars. Will Friedle from “Boy Meets World” was a guest star on the web series. Cree Summer from “Rugrats,” Troy Baker from “The Last of Us,” Cheech Marin from “Up in Smoke,” Alanna Ubach from “Bombshell,” Mary Elizabeth McGlynn from “Star Wars Rebels,” Ralph Ineson from “Game of Thrones,” Lance Reddick from “John Wick,” Billy Boyd from “The Lord of the Rings,” and even Henry Winkler also appeared (Happy Days).
The Legend of Vox Machina Season 2 Trailer
Because the show is coming out soon, there is a lot of promotional videos, which you can watch below. There is a trailer and the first look just at the season, which starts where Season 1 ended on a cliffhanger.
The Legend of Vox Machina Season 2 Plot
The official plot of Season 2 of The Legend of Vox Machina is as follows: “After saving the kingdom from evil and ruination just at hands of Exandria’s scariest power couple, Vox Machina must save the world again, this time from a group of evil dragons called the Chroma Conclave.”
If you’ve played Dungeons & Dragons, users understand that the first episode of one starts like many other campaigns: with a group of friends, mercenaries, or strangers having met in a tavern and taking a job for money. It helps give a campaign a place to start, a reason for characters to meet (even if they are strangers most of the time), and a goal those must reach together no matter what.
In Vox Machina, it is up to the group to find and kill the monster that has been scaring people in the city. The Tal’Dorei council has sent them off without telling them much or anything. When the group realized that the monster was a big blue dragon, they worked together to figure out how to beat it. This makes them heroes, or the council gives them their own home to live in as a reward.
After this part of the story where we get to know the characters, we follow this same group to the hometown of one of their members, where they have to defeat the wicked couple running the town and bring it back to its former glory. Regarding the danger of giving away too much, let’s just say that there are a lot of fights between the group and their enemies and a huge amount of deaths.
Just before the final episode ends, we view four dragons inside the distance coming toward the city where our heroes are. Here is where season two will start. Here’s what the official tagline for Amazon says.
The group of dragons that wish to destroy the whole world of Exandria is called the Chroma Conclave. It looks like it’s up to the group of mismatched but related mercenaries-turned-heroes to find a way to beat the dragons and safeguard the world.
The series is based on Critical Role’s first Dungeons and Dragons campaign. Season one ended on a pretty shocking cliffhanger which set up season two perfectly, especially if you like dragons. After being brought before actually King Uriel Tal’Dorei, ruler of the Tal’Dorei Empire, Vox Machina was astonished to learn that Uriel was giving up the throne and giving control of the Empire to the Tal’Dorei Council, citing Vox Machina’s teamwork as a reason.
But when Vex’ahlia’s ringing ears told the group that a dragon was coming, Keyleth and King Uriel had seen 4 dragons coming quickly. At the end of the season, four dragons, each as scary as the last, were getting ready to kill Emon.
