“We were absolutely overwhelmed by the level of enthusiasm we received for the Kickstarter campaign, and now we can deliver exactly what fans wanted, and more.

President of Titmouse (The Legend of Vox Machina’s animation company), Chris Prynoski, added that he was “delighted to have Titmouse join the Critical Role adventurer band to slay this beast alongside the mighty Amazon army. !”
What is certain is that the series has easily been popular enough to deserve a second season. Critical reception for The Legend of Vox Machina has been generally positive, with the majority of rave reviews coming directly from fans of the series.
Season 1 of The Legend of Vox Machina earned an impressive 8.4/10 on IMDB, 8.6/10 on RatinGraph, and an average viewership rating of 93% on Rotten Tomatoes.
“I always thought D&D would make for great viewing, but so far I haven’t seen anything that captures the magic of role-playing. This show is the best version of the one available and it’s definitely less dungeon and dragon, it captures the complexity of storytelling and character well. In fact, I think the episodes are too short. – User reviews, via IMDB.
