June 8, 2017 – After the equivalent of 19 seasons of television, 68 million series views, 544 non-playable characters (NPCs) voiced by Matthew Mercer, and 33 Hamilton references, the cast of Critical Role – the hit live-action D&D series starring eight friends and renowned voice actors including Matthew Mercer, Marisha Ray, Taliesin Jaffe, Travis Willingham, Sam Riegel, Laura Bailey, Ashley Johnson (Blindspot), and Liam O’Brien – will be celebrating their 100th episode this Thursday, June 8. The special episode – filled with lots of surprises – airs on Geek & Sundry’s Twitch channel and Alpha at 7pm PDT.
The episode will also feature several special announcements including the long-requested launch of the Critical Role podcast, a collectible poster from artist David Mack (that will be revealed during the 100th episode) and a ton of kills, damage, face palms, Nat20s and much more. The podcast audio will include an intro episode 0 as well as audio from Critical Role episodes 1-10 and is available on iTunes, Google Play Music, and at criticalrolepodcast.geekandsundry.com.
Taking place in Exandria, a world created by Mercer, the show attracts hundreds of thousands of viewers weekly who watch both live and VOD. Since its launch in March 2015, Critical Role has excited many new fans about the world of Dungeons & Dragons including quite a few celebrities that have joined the cast as special guests – Felicia Day, Wil Wheaton, and Phil Lamarr, to name a few. And, as a lead-in to the 100th episode, the Critical Role team welcomed Jon Heder, Napoleon Dynamite himself, who will also return for episode 100 tonight.
