Exclusive: star and executive producer Liam O’Brien shares his hopes for The Legend of Vox Machina in the upcoming third season and beyond.
Liam O’Brien shares his hopes for The Legend of Vox Machina’s future with season 3 and beyond. The Legend of Vox Machina has proven to be a booming success for Critical Role and Amazon, with the series renewed for a third season before the second season premiered. The first season covered Campaign One’s first major arc, Thr Briarwoods, while the second season dove into the massive Chroma Conclave arc.
During an exclusive interview with Screen Rant, O’Brien discussed his hopes for the future of The Legend of Vox Machina. He explaied that the dream scenario is to play out the entire first campaign with the animated series, and even seemed to hint at a bigger third season as well.
Liam O’Brien: Obviously, we all want to tell the entire story. I think the best case scenario for all of us is that we don’t stop until we reach those final seconds of the story that we told her on the table together. I think that both seasons are amazing. I feel like season two upped the gam and, knowing what’s possible, we don’t ever want to dial backward. We just want to climb higher. And I know that our team, all our artists, and Sam and Travis, who helmed this ship, have learned so much over the years and bigger and better.
Will The Legend Of Vox Machina Cover The Entire Campaign?
Amazon is clearly happy with The Legend of Vox Machina, given the early season 3 renewal and the deal with Critical Role. The third season will continue the massive Chroma Conclave arc as Vox Machina now has to contend with Raishan, Vorugal, and Thordak after collecting the Vestiges of Divergence and killing Umbrasyl. The second season finale set up an exciting turn of events, with Raishan infiltrating Vox Machina’s Whitestone stronghold and Thordak’s eggs revealed in the final moments.
While the third season will likely wrap up the Chroma Conclave arc, Vox Machina continues to protect the realm from even more dangerous threats in the future. Sam Riegel has said that he could see The Legend of Vox Machina running for five seasons, if not more, with how many stories they have left to tell. The series has already laid the groundwork for some of these post-Chroma Conclave storylines in both the first and second seasons.
Following the massive Chroma Conclave story, the first campaign featured two more major arcs, which are integral to fully experiencing Vox Machina’s story. The cast and crew’s passion for this series, these characters, and their stories, along with the dedicated Critter community, are a driving force behind The Legend of Vox Machina’s success. The deal with Amazon and the early season 3 renewal definitely spell good fortune for the future of The Legend of Vox Machina.
