Matt Groening Will Have a New Show on Netflix Called "Disenchantment" in 2018


Matt Groening, the creator of the Simpsons and Fururama, has a new show coming to Netflix titled Disenchantment. Since 1998, Groening has helped shape the world of animation, tv and social commentary. The Simpsons is the longest running sitcom and animated series in American history and is rapidly approaching it's 30th season. While Futurama only ran for seven seasons, it has an equally strong fan base. Netflix and Matt gave us some details recently in a press release:

"In Disenchantment, viewers will be whisked away to the crumbling medieval kingdom of Dreamland, where they will follow the misadventures of hard-drinking young princess Bean, her feisty elf companion Elfo, and her personal demon Luci. Along the way, the oddball trio will encounter ogres, sprites, harpies, imps, trolls, walruses, and lots of human fools."

“Ultimately," says Matt Groening, "Disenchantmentwill be about life and death, love and sex, and how to keep laughing in a world full of suffering and idiots, despite what the elders and wizards and other jerks tell you."

"The series will feature the voice talents of Abbi Jacobson (“Bean”), Nat Faxon (“Elfo”) and Eric Andre (“Luci”), along with John DiMaggio, Billy West, Maurice LaMarche, Tress MacNeille, David Herman, Matt Berry, Jeny Batten, Rich Fulcher, Noel Fielding, and Lucy Montgomery. Animation is being done by Rough Draft Studios (Futurama)."

"Matt Groening's brilliant work has resonated with generations around the world and we couldn't be happier to work with him on Disenchantment," said Cindy Holland, Vice President, Original Content for Netflix. "The series will bear his trademark animation style and biting wit, and we think it's a perfect fit for our many Netflix animation fans."
