Fandom-focused video platform VRV is bringing the high-rolling hijinx of animated RPG comedy HarmonQuest on board. The 10-episode season 3 will premiere August 18, with new episodes debuting every Sunday exclusively on VRV.
“HarmonQuest perfectly blends comedy, improv, gaming and animated storytelling,” said Hillary Levi, Creative Executive, Crunchyroll and VRV. “The VRV community has been patiently waiting for the new season, and we’re excited to deliver that very soon!”
Created by executive producers Dan Harmon (Rick and Morty, Community) and Spencer Crittenden, HarmonQuest follows a colorful cast of characters through a fantasy roleplaying game with a live audience. The show is part animation, part live action, and all fun as comedians Erin McGathy and Jeff B. Davis, along with game master Crittenden, Harmon, and a special guest, complete a new Pathfinder adventure each episode.
“We had a blast filming this new season, and we have an awesome lineup of special guests who decided to quest with us,” said Harmon. “I’m sure everyone is also very concerned about the future of Fondue, so fans will have to tune in to the premiere to find out what comes next!”
Special guests for S3 include Kate Miccuci (Garfunkel and Oates, Steven Universe), Reggie Watts (Musician and comedian, The Late Late Show with James Corden), D’Arcy Carden (The Good Place, Broad City), and Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePants), alongside actors and comedians Carl Tart, Jared Logan, Jessica McKenna, Joel Kim Booster, Matt Gourley and Tawny Newsome.
“Fans should get ready to travel with us through time and space on HarmonQuest season three,” said Crittenden. “The difficulty class is higher, the campaign arcs are crazier and the dice rolls always kept the team on their toes.”
S3 synopsis: The world has been destroyed by the demon helling! To make things worse, Fondue ( Harmon) is dead, and his spirit is trapped inside a sword. It’s now up to Buer (McGathy), Boneweevil (Davis) and a mysterious newcomer to find a way to undo the damage done and repair the mistakes that led to the end of the world (and were like, definitely their fault). Seeking the “Beast of Beginning” to reset their past, our heroes traverse time and space to set the world right, but run into increasingly dangerous complications caused by trying to alter the fabric of reality itself.
HarmonQuest is produced by Universal Content Productions and Starburns Industries; exec producers are Harmon, Crittenden and James Fino.
All season of the series are available exclusively on VRV, as part of the platform’s curated selection of SVOD channels (including animation destinations Crunchyroll, Rooster Teeth, Boomerang, NickSplat and HIDIVE), 80,0000-plus episodes and 2 million minutes of streaming content.
