The Simpsons is the longest-running primetime series in the history of television. That’s no small achievement to keep a TV show relevant and quality after decades. The Simpsons’ continues to go strong even after all of this time.
Simpsons’ creator Matt Groening has been instrumental in the success of the series and now he’s making a new show for Netflix.
Netflix has announced that it has ordered 20 episodes of a new animated comedy series called Disenchantment. The new series has been created by The Simpsons’ creator himself, Matt Groening. The first batch of episodes will be released in 2018. The Disenchantment episodes will be released ten at a time on Netflix so the first batch of ten episodes will be out next year. Matt Groening and Josh Weinstein of Futurama will be serving as executive producers. Hopefully it willbe along lasting hit like The Simpsons is.
Rough Draft Studios will be responsible for all of the animation work. It’s the same animation production company that’s used for Futurama. It is an adult animated comedy series that will feature “the crumbling medieval kingdom of Dreamland,” with characters like 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. Sounds like our kind of show.
