Critical Role is entering a brand new season, and the roster is full of new shows and returning favorites. The former includes a surprising new show based on the hit series Deadwood and will feature Brian W. Foster as the GM in a new web series titled UnDeadwood. Foster will be leading a delightful group that includes Marisha Ray, Khary Payton, Matthew Mercer, Anjali Bhimani, Travis Willingham, and Ivan Van Norman, who as you can see in the new image below will play the Bartender of the group. The new show will debut in October, but we aren't sure when the first episode will air yet.
The show will be released on Twitch weekly on Fridays, but then will be available on YouTube Sundays, and we can't wait to see what Foster and the entire group have planned for viewers, especially with all the potential the premise offers the GM and his players. You can check out the official description below (via Critrole.com).
"Join Game Marshall Brian W. Foster as he runs a four-part episodic saga utilizing the Deadlands Reloaded RPG system set in the not-so-sleepy town of Deadwood, where rumors of supernatural happenings and illegal mining activity have come to a head. An unlucky group of citizens are brought together to fight an evil they’ve never encountered — and will fight to save their very souls in the process.

Brian will be joined by an incredible cast of characters including Marisha Ray, Matthew Mercer, Khary Payton, Anjali Bhimani, Travis Willingham and Ivan Van Norman as The Bartender.
UnDeadwood was created and produced with so much heart by Brian W. Foster and the mega-talented Ivan Van Norman. We’ll reveal our release date for UnDeadwood next week, so be sure to keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter accounts!"
