Attention, 'Disenchantment' fans! New episodes of Princess Bean's misadventures are to arrive in 2019
The misadventures from the mind of Groening will continue in all of its adult animated comedy-fantasy glory when the new episodes of season one premiere in 2019.
Netflix and Matt Groening presented us with a wondrous gift this August, in the form of the animated series, 'Disenchantment.' It gained rave reviews in a very short period of time, which wasn't surprising, considering it came from the house of the mastermind who has blessed us with shows like 'The Simpsons', 'Futurama', and 'Bob's Burgers'. And what's better is that in recent news, it has been announced that 'Disenchantment' has been renewed and the remaining episodes of season one are going to premiere in the coming year!
The misadventures from the mind of Groening will continue in all of its adult animated comedy-fantasy glory when the new episodes of season one premiere in 2019. An additional 20 episodes have been ordered and will roll out in 2020 and 2021. Creator and executive producer Groening says: "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."
In 'Disenchantment', viewers were whisked away to the crumbling medieval kingdom of Dreamland, where they 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 encounter ogres, sprites, harpies, imps, trolls, walruses, and lots of human fools. The series features the voice 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.
But the best part about the whole plot is the spin the show creators have put on the whole princess concept. Princess Bean is not your regular Disney princess; she's a dysfunctional, beer chugging one that fights with thieves and aces with sarcasm. In its own subtly feminist way, 'Disenchantment' has emerged as one of the most intelligent comedies brimming with social satire this year, and as is clear - fans are thrilled already, and can't wait to see more of the story unfold!
