Matt Groening’s latest animated series “Disenchantment” will be getting a second season at Netflix. The video streaming service confirmed the renewal earlier today with a promotional video, announcing that all-new episodes are planned for roughly the next two years. The comedy is a fantasy series offered exclusively on Netflix, which releases episodes 10 at a time. If you haven’t jumped into the adventures Dreamland yet, the first half of Season 1 are already available on Netflix.
As for the series itself, the story takes place in the crumbling medieval kingdom of Dreamland. Viewers will follow the misadventures of the hard-drinking young princess Bean, her feisty elf companion Elfo, and her personal demon Luci. Along the way, the oddball trio will encounter ogres, sprites, harpies, imps, trolls, walruses, and lots of human fools. In the announcement earlier this year Matt Groening stated, “Disenchantment will be about life and death, love and sex, and how to keep laughing in a world full of suffering and idiots, despite what the elders and wizards and other jerks tell you.”
The series feature the voices talents of Abbi Jacobson (“Bean”), Nat Faxon (“Elfo”) and Eric Andre (“Luci”), along with John DiMaggio, Billy West, Maurice LaMarche, Tress MacNeille, David Herman, Matt Berry, Jeny Batten, Rich Fulcher, Noel Fielding, and Lucy Montgomery. Animation is being done by Rough Draft Studios (Futurama). Fans can watch the promotional video that below, on YouTube Netflix left viewers the caption “The misadventure continues. New Disenchantment episodes coming 2019, 2020 and 2021.”
Just like “Futurama,” the new series “Disenchantment” received mixed reviews when Season 1 launched. Hopefully “Disenchantment” will find the same success that Futurama did, without all of the network switching and cancellations that poor Fry and Bender had to go through. Disenchantment is produced by The ULULU Company for Netflix, with Matt Groening and Josh Weinstein (The Simpsons, Futurama) serving as executive producers.
