Netflix has ordered 20 episodes of a new Matt Groening animated series. The new show, titled Disenchantment, will feature the voices of Broad City‘s Abbi Jacobson, Eric Andre and Nat Faxon. The show centers around Bean, a boozehound princess, her companion and her personal demon.
Groening described the show as, “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.”
Said Netflix’s Vice President of Original Content, Cindy Holland: “Matt Groening’s brilliant work has resonated with generations around the world and we couldn’t be happier to work with him on Disenchantment. 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.”
Matt Groening is responsbile for two of the most popular and beloved animated series of all time, The Simpsons and Futurama, and the news comes shortly after a large amount of episodes of the latter were removed from Netflix. Our eyes will be peeled for this new show, which can hopefully ease the pain of losing Fry, Bender and co.
The first ten episodes of Disenchantment are set to release on Netflix next year.
