Featuring a new title sequence — which you can check out above — the 12-episode installment will debut three new episodes each week.

In Season 3, the Chroma Conclave’s path of destruction has spread like wildfire while the Cinder King hunts down Vox Machina. The misfit crew must “rise above inner (and outer) demons to try and save their loved ones, Tal’Dorei, and all of Exandria,” per the official synopsis.
