Hasbro Entertainment is adding three new original series to its free ad-supported channel on Amazon Freevee and Plex the week of November 13. The Dungeons & Dragons: Adventures channel welcomes Faster, Purple Worm! Kill! Kill!, Encounter Party, and Heroes’ Feast.
New episodes will stream twice a week at 6:00 p.m. PT, starting with Heroes’ Feast on Mondays and Wednesdays. The show features dishes, desserts, and cocktails from the Dungeons & Dragons Cookbook with hosts “Chief Mike” Haracz and actor Sujata Day and special guests Khary Payton, Michelle Nguyen Bradley, Jonah Ray, and Freddie Wong, to name a few.
Tune in Tuesdays and Fridays for Encounter Party with Dungeon Master Brian David Judkins, and six players, including Khary Payton and Ned Donovan, guide their characters through Baldur’s Gate and “into the very jaws of fate.” On Thursdays and Fridays, catch a tabletop game on Faster, Purple Worm! Kill! Kill! with guest players Seth Green, Anjali Bhimani, Skeet Ulrich, Sean Gunn, Mica Burton, Patton Oswalt, and Matthew Lillard, which promises an in-depth stand-alone story in each episode with hilarious character deaths.
The move marks a growing trend in entertainment as D&D fans see waves of films and series inspired by the role playing game. The 2023 action comedy Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, starring Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez, and Regé-Jean Page, grossed $208 million in theaters worldwide before landing on Prime Video on August 25. It is also available on Paramount+ and Sling TV.
The Dungeons & Dragons: Adventures channel includes the 1980s animated series Dungeons & Dragons, Rivals of Waterdeep, High Rollers, DesiQuest, and more nostalgic shows.
Dungeons & Dragons, dubbed the World’s Greatest Roleplaying Game, has been the center of game night for almost 50 years, netting 50 million devoted fans spanning a multitude of mediums, including novels, comics, and video games.
