The adult animated fantasy sitcom created by Matt Groening is scheduled to return to Netflix later this year on September 20, 2019
If you have been sleeping on the Matt Groening created 'Disenchantment', it is now time to catch up on the first part of the first season before the second part is out on September 20, 2019.
Starring the voices of Abbi Jacobson, Eric Andre, Nat Faxon, John DiMaggio, Tress MacNeille, Matt Berry, David Herman, Maurice LaMarche, Lucy Montgomery, and Billy West, the show follows Princess Bean and her misadventures in the medieval fantasy kingdom of Dreamland.
The animated show comes from the mind of 'The Simpsons' and 'Futurama' creator Groening and will release ten more episodes as second part of its first season - the story will catch up from where it left off at the end of the first part.
Netflix had first sanctioned twenty episodes of the series, out of which ten were released in August 2018. The remaining ten episodes of the first season are scheduled to release on Netflix on September 20, 2019. In October 2018, the series was renewed for a twenty-episode second season, which is set to be released between 2020 and 2021.
The show's Twitter account tweeted the announcement of the release of the second half of the first season.

The second half of the first season, all ten episodes, will be out on September 20, 2019.
The official synopsis of the show is: "Princess Tiabeanie, 'Bean', is annoyed at her imminent arranged marriage to Prince Merkimer. Then she meets Luci, a demon, and Elfo, an elf, and things get rather exciting, and dangerous."
The first part of the first season followed Princes Bean, who is forced to marry against her will, and who teams up with her very own personal demon Luci (voiced by Andre) and an elf Elfo (voiced by Faxon) to escape.
On their journey, the trio encounters ogres, sprites, harpies, imps, trolls and walruses apart from human stupidity.
Abbi Jacobson as Princess Bean
Jacobson lends her voice to protagonist Princess Bean whose full name is Princess Tiabeanie Mariabeanie de la Rochambeau Grunkwitz. As Bean, Abbi plays the role of a 19-year-old hard-drinking teenager, daughter to King Zøg. She is growing up in a patriarchal setup, with which she is not happy, and wants to get outside of her kingdom and live the world.
Jacobson is no stranger to comedy series and co-starred in the Comedy Central series 'Broad City' with Ilana Glazer.
Eric Andre as Luci
Andre lends his voice to Princess Tiabeanie's personal demon Luci, who she is cursed with as a mysterious present from mysterious sources for mysterious reasons.
Andre - actor and comedian - is the creator, host, and co-writer of 'The Eric Andre Show' on Adult Swim and played Mike on 'Man Seeking Woman'.
Nat Faxon as Elfo
As Elfo, Faxon voices the 18-year-old elf who has fled from the tiny, magical, hidden world of Elfwood. He knows he is not meant to continue living in Elfwood since he is aware that he is different from the other elves, and leaves home to find his true purpose. Faxon won the Academy Awards for Best Adapted Screenplay for co-writing the George Clooney starrer 'The Descendants'.
He is perhaps best known to have starred in the comedy series 'Ben and Kate'.
Created by Matt Groening
Matt Groening brings his classic style of animation and storytelling to 'Disenchantment'. The show is one of the few projects that Groening has worked on outside of his extremely popular and acclaimed animated series 'The Simpsons', which just finished its 30th season. His adult animated series have been a hit - turn to 'The Simpsons' (which is the longest-running U.S. primetime-television series in history and the longest-running U.S. animated series and sitcom) and 'Futurama' (both produced for Fox) for proof. He has won 12 Primetime Emmy Awards - ten for 'The Simpsons' and two for 'Futurama'.
The series is animated by Rough Draft Studios and produced by The ULULU Co. for Netflix. Groening and Josh Weinstein are executive producers for the animated series.
