The new animated series is set to premiere on Disney+ on January 10, and has already been picked up for a second season.
The series will release on January 10, on the Disney Channel.
According to the synopsis released by Disney, "Luz, a self-assured teenage human girl, accidentally stumbles upon a portal to a magical new world where she befriends a rebellious witch, Eda, and an adorably tiny warrior, King. Despite not having magical abilities, Luz pursues her dream of becoming a witch by serving as Eda's apprentice at the Owl House and ultimately finds a new family in an unlikely setting."

The show was created by Dana Terrace, who also served as executive producer. In an interview with the Hartford Courant, she spoke about coming up with the original concept. "I remember coming up with the baseline of the show: A girl goes to demon realm to learn how to be a witch from an older witch. I showed it to a writing partner, who said ‘That’s a horrible idea. No one will ever watch that’,” she said. “I made a pitch out of spite and started pitching studios. Disney picked it up."
Disney released the first teaser for the series on June 11, 2019, featuring silent images of scenes from the series set to music.
On November 21, Disney released the full official trailer, which introduced the series concept as well as the series' release date. The trailer introduces Luz, the Boiling Isles, as well as introducing the characters of Eda and King.
