Disenchantment renewed for season two at Netflix
Matt Groening’s latest animated effort, Disenchantment, has successfully rounded up a following from audiences to earn a second season from Netflix, according to Deadline.
In the series, viewers are whisked away to the crumbling medieval kingdom of Dreamland, where they will follow the misadventures of 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.
The series features the voice talents of Abbi Jacobson (Broad City) as Bean, Nat Faxon (Tammy) as Elfo and Eric Andre (The Lion King) as Luci. They are joined by John DiMaggio, Billy West, Maurice LaMarche, Tress MacNeille, David Herman, Matt Berry, Jeny Batten, Rich Fulcher, Noel Fielding, and Lucy Montgomery.
The animation for Disenchantment will be done by Rough Draft Studios (Futurama). Disenchantment is produced by The ULULU Company for Netflix, with Matt Groening and Josh Weinstein (The Simpsons, Futurama) serving as executive producers.
The series has received mixed reviews from critics upon release in August, but received generally positive reviews from audiences, which helped the adult animated series earn a 20-episode second season from the streaming service, which will debut in 2020 and 2021.
The second half of the first season, which will consist of 10 episodes, is set to debut sometime in 2019.
