No surprises there - the question is whether there are 3 seasons or 4 - and whether they go straight into the Mighty Nein right after Vox Machina.

And if there are 4 seasons of Vox Machnia - might we get an original story that take place after the events of the streaming?Something that tells the story between the end of streaming and the first time we see them again ...

Or do they move onto Exandria instead?

Not sure what you meant here - Exandria is the world. Campaign 1 was in Tal'dorei primarily. Campaign 2 was in Wildemount primarily. Campaign 3 has been in Marquet. We've also seen a bit of northern Issylra and Domunas / Shattered Teeth (but not much).

I'd actually be keen to see more of Exandria explored. An animated series that told three different 4 episode stories in areas of Exandria we have not seen would be interesting, especially if we followed an establish PC/NPC there. For example, Southern Tal'dorei is almost an unknown, but the guide books have a lot of interesting hooks there. Seeing Gilmore head into these regions to establish trade might be fun.

They said last night on their stream they got green lit for season 3

Edit: I see where it clearly says this up top. Sorry

Opps, I meant Wildemount.

Sam Riegel “To try to adapt it to a single season is a daunting task. We were trying to find out if it was possible. Thankfully, we got greenlit for season 3.” So it looks like chroma conclave will be seasons 2 and 3

Yeah, the Conclave arc is three times the length of the Briarwood arc. Trying to condense it into a single season would have been a huge mistake.

You can do it in one season of 12 episodes. I ampped it out once. The vestiges and dragon slaying play the key parts (outside the attack on Emon) and they can remove almost all of the connecting bits between those events. The first episode could be the attack on Emon and run through the discover of the Vestiges. Then you'd have 10 episodes where vesitges and dragon slaying take place. That leaves an extra episode for some of the other intrigue of the arc. There is a lot of 'fluff' in there that is optional to the core story.

It CAN be done, but they have been lobbying hard for Amazon to greenlight Season 3 so they could do the Chroma Conclave justice across two seasons. From the moment they got a second season approved, they wanted a third for that reason.

Do we know how well season 1 did? I'm guessing it did well to get a 2nd and 3rd season. Just curious, I loved it and can't wait to see more.

I think the group dynamics behind the show make it unlikely that they would have a further season after the events of the campaign, because one of their characters doesn't survive the campaign.

Then again I was sure they'd just write Pike into the Briarwoods arc rather than be weirdly faithful to having her sidelined because the player was gone for those episodes, so you never know.

Same! I was excited to see how they would write Pike into the adventure. It was a genuine surprise they stayed faithful.

That player has played a different character 'Post Campaign' in a VM one shot - and there could be a story centered around that missing character returning to deal with a lingering thread from the campaign. Specifically, Vex swore something to the Raven Queen and that Oath has not been fulfilled. Matt has said that the RQ blew it off () - at the time - but ... it creates an opportunity for a level appropriate adventure that could involve the original party members.

I enjoyed Matt basically describing the Raven Queen's reaction go Vex's promise as "lol, sure, even I'm not gonna hold you to that".
