Is Disenchantment Season 5 happening? What happened in the fourth installment? When did the last season drop? All these are questions that we’re going to entertain today in this post. Firstly, if you’re not familiar with Disenchantment, it is an animated fantasy series created by the same man who brought us Futurama and The Simpsons, Matt Groening. It airs exclusively on Netflix, and it dropped initially in August 2018, grabbing quite some traction with it.
With Groening’s trademark animation æsthetics, the collaborative series with Rough Draft Studios and Netflix embarked on a multi-season project that will have us travel a world of fantasy. On another point, the premise of this show is that Dreamland is a northern European fictional kingdom. Set in the middle ages, our heroine, Bean, has adventures all over the place. Turns out Bean is not the traditional heroine, but the anti-heroine: She’s rowdy, has a nasty drinking habit, she’s reckless, and partners with a silly elf sidekick named Elfo. Now, without further ado, let’s begin covering this super cool animated series by Matt Groening.
Disenchantment Season 4 Recap
The plotlines for this installment of Disenchantment are varied. Chapter 1, titled “Love is Hell” centers around how Bean, stuck in hell tries to resist her forced marriage to Satan. Turns out Dagmar was cajoling and forcing her to wed the Prince of the Nether Region. All the while, Elfo was trying to flee from the ogres’ grasp, and Luci, she was planning to escape into heaven. Then, we move on to chapter 2, titled “The Good, The Bad and the Bum-Bum”. In this episode, we saw how Luci, Bean, and Jerry tried to steer a flying device from Alva. Since Elfo didn’t escape from the ogres, he’s stuck with them and gets familiar with their ways. In the process, he learns of a history he didn’t know about.
Chapter 3, titled “The Cabinet of Dr. Chazzzzz”, sees King Zøg become hospitalized in a mental institution with Chazzzzz. Meanwhile, Bean becomes hugely disappointed by what she finds at Dreamland. Later on, we see how Vap and Vip attempt to rescue him in a bunch of daring moves, managing to achieve a massive and epic resue. In Chapter 4, titled “Goon Baby Goon”, we see how Zøg, after his rescue reunites with Bean. Only to discover that Cloyd and Becky took control of Dreamland and transformed its inhabitants into goons.
Cloyd and Becky in Cahoots
Episodes 5 (“The Pitter-Patter of Little Feet) and 6 (What To Expect When You’re Expecting Parasites) sees many events: From Sorcerio making Freckles the puppet go alive in a sort of Franken-Pinocchio way to defeat King Zøg in a comedy showdown as the puppet goes in cahoots with Becky and Cloyd. To Bean and her crew taking a dive deep underwater into the ocean where they find a castle full of Sea Trøgs keeping a secret that links them to the Elves.
In episode 7, “The Unbearable Lightning of Bean” we see how Zøg, bored to his death, delves into a forest in search of a romantic interest and stumbles into Ursula, the Bear. Meanwhile, Luci, Elfo, and Bean go into a place where a big battle took place and start gathering some clues. After that, in Episode 8 (“Spy vs. Spy vs. Spy), Elfo gets the order to spy on the Elven crowd. But he’s clumsy, gets caught, and then he has to spy on the Trøgs, who, in turn, hilariously have him spy on the humans who sent him on a mission in the first place, making Elfo a triple agent.
The Final Two Episodes
The final two episodes see Freckles cajoling Bear Boy and Derek into getting really confrontational with some bullies. And Bean finally confronts her dark side, the “Dark Bean” but it turns out that her dark side has an ulterior motive and some few aces under her sleeve. While the secret for the goo comes out, we see Derek, Freckles, and Bear Boy get snatched.
The voice cast of Disenchantment season 5 might consist of the same voice actors as in the past. Firstly, we have Abbi Jacobson voicing Bean. Secondly, Eric André voices Pendergast and Luci. Thirdly, John DiMaggio voices King Zøg. Fourth, Tress MacNeille voices Bonnie Prince Derek and Queen Oona. Fifth, Nat Faxon voices Elfo. Additionally, Maurice LaMarche voices Odval, Matt Berry voices Prince Merkimer, and Sharon Horgan voices Queen Dagmar. Also, all things considered, if we see more plotlines expanded, we could even see more voice actors added to this great voice cast.
The main character is Bean, a rowdy, alcoholic 19-year-old princess in the fictional world of Dreamland. Her full name is Princess Tiabeanie Mariabeanie de la Rochambeau Grunkwitz. And her rowdy persona makes her go into wild adventures. She’s caring for her dad, her subjects, and her friends. Next, we have Luci, princess Bean’s private demonic entity. Also, Elfo is an 18-year-old half-elf from the fictional realm of Elfwood, whose knack for candy and optimism always gets him in trouble.
King Zøg is Bean’s dad, he rules Dreamland, and he’s from the Royal House of Grunkwitz. He’s often bored and gets in trouble. But he means well. Then we have Queen Oona, she’s King Zøg’s second ex-wife, a weird human-like creature that resembles a Frok from the fictional kingdom of Dankmire, who had to marry poor Zøg as an alliance.
From that marriage spawned Bonnie Prince Derek, he’s Bean’s half-brother. Then, Prince Merkiker, who hails from Bentwood, was supposed to marry Princess Bean but was transformed into a swine. Also, Odval is a three-eyed prime minister. Lastly, Queen Dagmar is Bean’s mother, first wife to King Zøg, she wanted to force Bean into the Underworld for debt payment, showing just how evil and nasty she is.

Disenchantment Season 5 Possible Plotlines
Bean and her gang embark on yet another strange and unbelievable journey in the fourth season. Bean is expected to marry Satan in hell at the start of the season, while Luci tries to flee from heaven. Elfo, on the other hand, wants to get away from the ogres.
