Netflix green lights season 2 of Matt Groening’s Disenchantment


Are you a fan of Netflix series Disenchantment? Then get ready for at least one more season.

As show creator, Matt Groening put it for Deadline: “Stay tuned for more cranked-up suspense, infuriating plot twists, and beloved characters getting knocked off.” The first 10 episodes of Disenchantment were released in August 2018, and more are on the way in 2019. Season 2 is slated to also consist of 20 episodes, to be released in 2020 and 2021.

Taking place in the magical kingdom of Dreamland, Disenchantment follows the story of boozed up young adult Princess Bean (Abbi Jacobson), whose father is King Zøg (John DiMaggio). Bean is almost constantly followed by the semi-magical, utterly naïve elf named Elfo (at Faxon) and a stylish, cat-like demon named Luci (Eric Andre). Other voices include those of Tress MacNeille, David Herman, Maurice LaMarche, Lucy Montgomery, Billy West, and Noel Fielding.

Every article about Disenchantment notes its mixed reviews, with some people loving it and others finding it disappointing. However, don’t most things get mixed reviews? Either way, a second season gives the characters a lot more time to develop, and it may grow on some people as a show, once people give it more of a chance.

Obviously, Matt Groening has established an ability to create long-running, successful and beloved shows.  He created The Simpsons and Futurama for 20th Century Fox Television — two of the most iconic animated TV shows of all time.  Maybe Disenchantment won’t last 30+ seasons like The Simpsons, but it’s already survived past season 1. Besides, with a title like Disenchantment, non-fans can’t accuse the show of lying about how they could feel.

While information’s lacking on where season 2 will go, Show Snob will undoubtedly be there to follow!
