The Legend of Vox Machina season 2
Critical Role started out as a top-notch Dungeons & Dragons podcast featuring a cast of professional voice actors. In 2021, it branched out into other mediums like books and television, including the first season of The Legend of Vox Machina on Prime Video.
The animated show translates the podcast’s heart and humor to the small screen. And of course, they already had a great cast. It’s a high fantasy show with dragons, wizards, and all the other trappings you’d expect from a series with its roots in D&D. It can get intense and violent but never takes itself too seriously.
The Legend of Vox Machina will return this year for a second season on Prime Video. Season 2 will consist of 12 episodes released in groups of three each week. The first three episodes are slated to hit Prime Video on January 20.
Everyone wants their own cinematic universe these days, and AMC has hosted a few, most notably The Walking Dead and its various spinoffs. The next big interconnected franchise they’re looking to launch is The Immortal Universe, based on the works of horror author Anne Rice.
The first show of The Immortal Universe, Interview With The Vampire, came out last fall and quickly won over a lot of people with its fresh take on the classic story of a brooding vampire telling his twisted life’s story. But AMC isn’t keen to rest on its laurels; the next installment in The Immortal Universe will come out right at the beginning of 2023.
Mayfair Witches isn’t quite as well-known as Rice’s Vampire Chronicles, which means AMC won’t have to worry as much about it being compared to previous adaptations. The series follows neurosurgeon Dr. Rowan Fielding, played by Alexandra Daddario (The White Lotus), who discovers that she’s the unlikely heir to a bloodline of witches.
Anne Rice’s Mayfair Witches premieres on AMC and AMC+ on January 8. Its first season will consist of eight episodes.
