The Legend of Vox Machina was originally intended to be an animated special, but the record-breaking Kickstarter fundraiser grew so large that the special also grew into an animated series, which was later picked up by Amazon. IGN previously spoke to some of the Critical Role cast members about Kickstarter’s impressive success and their excitement about the adaptation.

Season 1 of The Legend of Vox Machina will premiere on Prime Video on January 28, with three episodes releasing each week for four weeks. Amazon ordered two seasons of the animated series ahead of the show’s launch, meaning another 12 episodes will arrive at a later date to fulfill the second season.
