Netflix Orders Matt Groening Comedy

Netflix has given an official twenty-episode order for “Disenchantment,” the long in the works adult animated comedy fantasy series from “The Simpsons” creator and “Futurama” co-creator Matt Groening.

Set in the crumbling medieval kingdom of Dreamland, the series will follow the misadventures of hard-drinking young princess Bean (Abbi Jacobson), her feisty elf companion Elfo (Nat Faxon), and her personal demon Luci (Eric Andre).

The oddball trio will encounter ogres, sprites, harpies, imps, trolls, walruses, and lots of human fools. John DiMaggio, Billy West, Maurice LaMarche, Tress MacNeille, David Herman, Matt Berry, Jeny Batten, Rich Fulcher, Noel Fielding and Lucy Montgomery will all lend their voices to the series.

Groening and Josh Weinstein will serve as executive producers. The twenty episodes will be split into two seasons of ten each, with the first premiering in 2018.
