The creator of 'The Simpsons' is making an animated series for Netflix

26 Jul 2017 | Rasmus Larsen |

Netflix subscribers across the world will soon be able to watch ’Disenchantment’, an animated comedy fantasy series by Matt Groening who is best known as the creator of The Simpsons.

Ogres, sprites, harpies, imps & trolls

In Disenchantment the viewer will be “whisked away to the crumbling medieval kingdom of Dreamland, where they will follow the misadventures of hard-drinking young princess Bean, her feisty elf companion Elfo, and her personal demon Luci. Along the way, the oddball trio will encounter ogres, sprites, harpies, imps, trolls, walruses, and lots of human fools”.

- “Ultimately," said Matt Groening, "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."

The series is intended for an adult audience, just like The Simpsons and Futurama were. Disenchantment will be animated by the same Rough Draft Studios who also brought Futurama to life. Josh Weinstein, known for his writing on The Simpsons and Futurama, is also onboard for the project.

- "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," said Cindy Holland, VP of Original Content for Netflix.

With the series Netflix will bring together a strong team from the golden days of TV. Since 1987, more than 600 episodes of The Simpsons, spanning over 28 seasons, have been broadcast. At the top of its popularity more than 30 million viewers tuned in to see an episode of the show in the US alone. The broadcasting rights were sold to many other regions across the worlds and with Disenchantment Netflix is hoping to create another iconic animated series that will resonate with a global audience across more than 190 countries.

Netflix has initially ordered 20 episodes of which the first 10 will be available worldwide in 2018.
