Dimension 20 returns for Junior Year at Fantasy High

The original cast is back in D20’s 21st season of actual play

Charlie Hall is Polygon’s tabletop editor. In 10-plus years as a journalist & photographer, he has covered simulation, strategy, and spacefaring games, as well as public policy.

Dropout will air its 21st episode of Dimension 20 in early 2024, and long-time fans are in for a treat. Dimension 20: Fantasy High - Junior Year brings back the original cast with Dungeon Master Brennan Lee Mulligan at the head of the table. The first of 20 episodes will premiere Jan. 10, 2024 on the Dropout streaming service.

Fantasy High originally aired in 2018, and it remains one of the troupe’s most beloved settings. It stars “The Bad Kids” — Emily Axford, Ally Beardsley, Brian Murphy, Zac Oyama, Siobhan Thompson, and Lou Wilson — as they plot a course through the weird world of Aguefort Adventuring Academy. The result is an endearing mashup that feels like what would happen if you dropped the kids from Hogwarts into study hall during season 7 of Riverdale.

For those who haven’t kept pace with the first two seasons of the show, Dropout will also be releasing the entirety of Fantasy High - Sophomore Year on YouTube.
