Netflix Releases Teaser For Matt Groening's Disenchantment: Part 2
In a few weeks' time. Matt Groening's Disenchantment is coming back to Netflix. If you've never seen it before, imagine The Simpsons before it went a bit 'meh', only with added elves and magic.
The new season is coming to the streaming site on 20 September and is set to pick up not much longer after the events of the first season. If you want to avoid spoilers... well, be warned: they're on their way in this article.
Netflix dropped a teaser for Disenchantment: Part 2 on Twitter earlier today with the caption: "If you're like me you probably haven't stopped thinking about Elfo since season one ended."
It continues: "Good thing @disenchantment Part 2 arrives in September 20th!"
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."
Netflix is obviously expecting Disenchantment to perform well, as it's already been renewed for a second time. Netflix originally ordered 20 episodes of the show, spreading the first season into two separate 10-episode parts. In October, the streaming service ordered an additional 20 episodes, extending the series to a second season.
Groening, who also created The Simpsons, Futurama and comic strip Life in Hell, said in a statement: "We're excited to continue this epic journey with Netflix. Stay tuned for more cranked-up suspense, infuriating plot twists, and beloved characters getting knocked off."
Set in the medieval kingdom of Dreamland, the series follows Princess Bean, voiced by Abbi Jacobson, who likes a beer or two; her elf companion Elfo (wonder how long it took them to come up with that); and her personal demon, Luci.
The unlikely trio navigate the 'crumbling medieval kingdom' while crossing paths with ogres, sprites, harpies, imps, trolls, walruses, and lots of human fools.
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.
Will Elfo make it? Or was season 1 really the end of the little guy? We'll find out soon on 20 September on Netflix.
