In a surprise move, Netflix has announced the second season of Disenchantment. The move came as a surprise since the first season was not exactly a darling of the critics. But it was later revealed that Netflix had already ordered 20 episodes in the first go. So the second season is definitely happening.
When Does Disenchantment Season 2 Come Out?
The show was created by Matt Groening who is known for the Simpsons. Season 1 contained ten episodes featuring Broad City’s Abbi Jacobson as the hard-drinking Princess Bean. She is supported by her very own elf and a personal demon. As if the castle wasn’t enough. The fantasy show is set in the medieval kingdom of Dreamland.
The culmination of season 1 saw all of the dreamland turning into stone leaving the fate of many in the lurch. In spite of that, most of the main cast comprising Abbi Jacobson as Bean, Eric Andre as Luci, John DiMaggio as Bean’s father King Zøg, Tress MacNeille as Bean’s stepmother Queen Oona and Sharon Horgan as Bean’s mother Queen Dagmar are expected to return. Also, the season 1 finale saw Elfo’s lifeless body being dragged away by unseen hands, leaving the fate of the Elf unpredictable. But the good news is that he was probably not taken away by Whitewalkers.
The return of Billy West and Maurice LaMarche is doubtful as for their characters, Sorcerio and Odval were turned to stone. The show is a true fantasy show with things like the elixir of life which was used to revive Queen Dagmar who in turn turned most of Dreamland into stone.
Bean is also rumored to possess magical powers. The finale left many unanswered questions like who kidnapped Luci? And who is Elfo’s mother? The finale also had a Simpson’s reference which is not surprising as both were conceived by the same person.
It remains to be seen what happens in Disenchantment season 2. The fate of Dreamland hangs in the balance. Will Bean be able to return Dreamland from its current state of stone land?
If Kroenig’s work on the Simpson’s is any indication, the show might just surprise us in its second run.
Disenchantment Season 2 Release Date
As of now, there is no official date of release, but it is expected sometime in August next year. But since there is a very good possibility that the 20 episodes were worked on at once, the second season might come out early, say in early 2019. Fans, if any need not worry as yours truly will keep you posted on the updates.
