Bean, Luci, and Elfo will soon return to Netflix—the streaming service has released a new trailer for Matt Groenig’s epic fantasy series Disenchantment, and has revealed when the third season will debut: January 15th, 2021.
The series is Groenig’s latest animated show, set in the fantasy kingdom of Dreamland, and about a rebellious teenage princess named Bean (voiced by Abbi Jacobson). In the first season, Bean met an exiled elf named Elfo (Nat Faxon), and a demon named Luci (Eric Andre), who both manage to play to her self-destructive qualities.
Like Groenig’s Futurama, Dreamland riffs on epic fantasy tropes, and the show has referenced everything from Game of Thrones to Dungeons & Dragons. From the trailer, it looks as though the main thrust of this season will deal with magic verses science as Bean and her friends deal with a new kingdom—a steampunk / dieselpunk inspired world named Steamland, which wants to form an alliance, giving the show ample opportunity to riff on another subgenre that falls under the fantasy umbrella. Along the way there are mermaids, mushrooms and, of course, creepy elves.
The series returns for its “Part 3″—the first batch of episodes for its awaited second season—on January 15th.
