Disenchantment is an adult animated sitcom created by Matt Groening.[1] Twenty episodes of the series have been ordered by Netflix[2] with the first ten episodes released in August 17, 2018.[3] The series is Groening's first production for Netflix; he previously created The Simpsons and Futurama for 20th Century Fox Television (Although Futurama was repeatedly gagged to have been made for 30th Century Fox). The first season will consist of ten episodes. [4] Netflix renewed Disenchantment for a second season. There will also be a second part to the first season, which will premiere in 2019. The second season will debut in 2020, with the second half of the season premiering in 2021.[5]


The series follows the story of Tiabeanie, or Bean, an alcoholic princess. She is joined by her elf companion Elfo, and her "personal demon" Luci. The sitcom will be set in a medieval kingdom known as Dreamland.[6] The series is speculated to be made into 2 parts of 10 episodes each, with continuity between episodes.



The series, created by The Simpsons and Futurama creator Matt Groening "will bear his trademark animation style". The series is animated by Rough Draft Studios, the same studio that worked on Futurama,and is planned for a 10 episode first season in 2018.[7] Groening has stated that while he has enjoyed fantasy since he was a child, the show was developed as a response to franchises such as Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones.[8]

In July 2017, it was announced Indigenous Australian rapper Adam Briggs is part of the writing team for the series.[9]


  • Monty Python and the Holy Grail is a huge influence on the show.[10]
  • Look for some sort of Easter Egg in the first shot of the show.
  • Matt Groening said that this is the first time he's drawn a character (Bean) with five fingers.
