Amazon picks up Critical Role’s animated show as a Prime exclusive
Amazon has ordered 24 episodes of the upcoming animated show Critical Role: The Legend of Vox Machina, according to Deadline. The show is based on the web series’ popular Twitch show, and Amazon is bringing it to Prime Video as an exclusive. On top of that, Critical Role has also signed a first-look deal to produce additional content exclusively for Amazon Prime.
Critical Role, which features voice actors playing Dungeons and Dragons, has streamed on Amazon-owned Twitch since 2015. “Our crazy little show was born on Twitch and we’re absolutely thrilled at the opportunity to continue to grow and develop deeper roots within the Amazon ecosphere,” Critical Role said in a Kickstarter update.
