​Matt Groening Series Disenchantment Returns To Netflix This September

Matt Groening's animated fantasy series Disenchantment will be returning to Netflix this September for a long-awaited second instalment.

Having made his name with iconic animated sitcoms like The Simpsons and Futurama, the show marked Groening's first foray into Netflix territory.

Netflix had ordered 20 episodes of the series a while back, with the first 10 released in August last year - at which point it became an immediate cult hit with viewers.

Now, though, it's almost time to binge on the remaining 10, which will be dropping on 20 September.

"Will she win... or booze? Disenchantment returns September 20," a tweet from the show's official Twitter page announced.

Fans were over the moon to hear the fantasy series would be returning to the streaming service, with one tweeting: "Finally!! Screw GoT, Disenchantment is best show, hands down."

A second commented: "YEEEEEESSSS!!!!!! OMFG I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!!!!"

Another person wrote: "Perfect timing. I'll binge it all then the following month start watching season 4 of Rick and Morty."

And someone else shared a similar sentiment, saying: "Omg. New Rick and Morty and new Disenchantment wtfffff is going on."

Set in the medieval kingdom of Dreamland, the series follows Princess Bean, who likes a beer or two, along with her elf companion Elfo (an absolutely inspired name, I know), and her own personal demon Luci.

With Abbi Jacobson voicing our rebellious heroine, the show also features the likes of Eric Andre (The Eric Andre Show and The Lion King) , Nat Faxon (Raymond the Bear in The Cleveland Show), John DiMaggio (Bender from Futurama), Tress MacNeille (Futurama as well), David Herman (Futurama again, among others) , Maurice LaMarche (yup, another from Futurama), Billy West (The Ren & Stimpy Show), Sharon Horgan (Catastrophe) and Brits Matt Berry, Lucy Montgomery and Noel Fielding.

Ahead of the release of the first season, Netflix vice president Cindy Holland said: "Matt Groening's brilliant work has resonated with generations around the world and we couldn't be happier to work with him on Disenchantment.

"The series will bear his trademark animation style and biting wit, and we think it's a perfect fit for our many Netflix animation fans."

Here's hoping for more of the same for our second outing...
