The Simpsons is the longest-running scripted primetime series in the history of television. It’s no small achievement to keep a TV show relevant and in the graces of fans after decades. The Simpsons’ continues to entertain audiences across the globe. Simpsons’ creator Matt Groening has been instrumental in the success of the series and his fans will now be excited to find out that he’s making a new show for Netflix.
Netflix has announced today that it has ordered 20 episodes of a new animated comedy series called Disenchantment. The new series has been created by none other than The Simpsons’ creator himself, Matt Groening. The first batch of episodes will be released in 2018.
The company says that the Disenchantment episodes will be released ten at a time on Netflix so the first batch of ten episodes will be out next year. The series is going to be produced for Netflix by the ULULU company. Matt Groening and Josh Weinstein of Futurama fame will be serving as executive producers.
Rough Draft Studios will be responsible for all of the animation work. It’s the same animation production company that’s also used for Futurama so their body of work is already much known and loved.
This adult animated comedy series is going to feature “the crumbling medieval kingdom of Dreamland,” according to Netflix, with characters including a “hard-drinking young princess Bean, her feisty elf companion Elfo, and her personal demon Luci.”
“Disenchantment will 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,” explains Groening.
