Netflix orders new animated series from “The Simpsons” creator

Netflix announced that it has ordered twenty episodes of “Disenchantment”, an adult animated comedy fantasy series from “The Simpsons” creator Matt Groening. The first ten episodes will debut in 2018.

“Disenchantment” is produced by The ULULU Company for Netflix, with Matt Groening and Josh Weinstein (The Simpsons, Futurama) serving as executive producers. The series takes place in the medieval kingdom of Dreamland and features a hard-drinking young princess called Bean (with the voice of Abbi Jacobson), her feisty elf companion Elfo (Nat Faxon), and her personal demon Luci (Eric Andre).

 “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.”
