Netflix has announced that the second part of Season 1 of Matt Groening’s animated “un-fairytale” ‘Disenchantment’ will be released on Friday, September 20, worldwide.
In a press release, Netflix said:
“Dying for more ‘Disenchantment’ but perhaps your memory is a bit… cloudy? Allow us to catch you up: Elfo is gone. Dreamland is deserted. Princess Bean is on a mission.”
Season 1 Part 2 will consist of ten episodes, just like Part 1. Part 1 was released on August 17, 2018, so Part 2 arrives a little more than a year later. Netflix has already ordered a second season, which will also be divided into two halves, each consisting of ten episodes. Season 2 Part 1 arrives in 2020, with Part 2 coming in 2021.
‘Disenchantment’ helped announced its return on Twitter, with the release of a new poster:

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.
Abbi Jacobson stars as the rough and tumble Princess Bean, who upturns every princess stereotype around. Nat Faxon voices her sidekick Elfo, while Eric Andrew voices Bean’s personal demon Luci. The cast also includes John DiMaggio, Billy West, Maurice LaMarche, Tress MacNeille, David Herman, Matt Berry, Jeny Batten, Rich Fulcher, Noel Fielding, and Lucy Montgomery.
When the show was renewed for a second season, Groenig issued a statement reading:
“We’re excited to continue this epic journey with Netflix. Stay tuned for more cranked-up suspense, infuriating plot twists, and beloved characters getting knocked off.”
Despite Easter Eggs for Groening fans, ‘Disenchantment’ got a decidedly mixed reaction, however, upon reaching the end of Season 1 Part 1, many praised the way the show was serialized. Netflix clearly has faith that this show will prove a strong contender for years to come.
