The animated comedy “Disenchantment” is coming back to Netflix this fall. The video streaming platform confirmed on Thursday morning that the second half of season 1 will return with all-new episodes on September 20th.
Just like “Futurama,” the new series was met with mixed reviews when it launched last year. Groening’s work usually relies heavily on call-backs and nods to previous episodes, a trick that is still used in “The Simpsons” to this day. You can’t do that in a show’s first season, and fans need time to get acquainted with the characters. Even the now iconic “Futurama” was canceled several times, and it took a while for viewers to appreciate the story. Fans of “Disenchantment” can set a reminder to catch the new episodes this fall.
As we mentioned earlier, the show is from Matt Groening, the same person that brought you The Simpsons 30 seasons ago. The show is a 10-episode adult animated comedy fantasy series, where viewers are whisked away to the crumbling medieval kingdom of Dreamland. The story follows the adventures of Princess Bean, her feisty elf companion Elfo, and her personal demon Luci. Along the way, the oddball trio encounter ogres, sprites, harpies, imps, trolls, walruses, and lots of human fools.
The series features the voice talents of Abbi Jacobson (“Bean”), Eric Andre (“Luci”) and Nat Faxon (“Elfo”) along with John DiMaggio, Billy West, Maurice LaMarche, Tress MacNeille, David Herman, Matt Berry, Jeny Batten, Rich Fulcher, Noel Fielding, and Lucy Montgomery.
We didn’t get a trailer yet for the new episodes, but now that the premiere date is set, a new video or two should be on the way over the next few weeks.
A lot can happen in a week, you can find more Movie and TV News to catch up on.
