Disenchantment is an American animated fantasy sitcom series that is suitable for viewers above 18 years of age. The series is generous with its a black comedy and rehashed humor, which is streamed on Netflix. The series is created by Matt Groening. Groening is also known for his other notable works like ‘Futurama’ and ‘The Simpsons.’
The series follows the story of an alcoholic princess named Bean. Bean is completely different from the projection of an ideal princess in Classic Fantasy Literature. Some of the jokes and humor contained in the series feel a little outlandish, and the show is also criticized for not engaging fully with its genre and forcing crude humor in the name of the adult comedy. All the events of the show occur in a medieval fantasy kingdom going by the name of Dreamland.
The series has attracted a lot of fans over its past two seasons. The show is blessed with Groening’s trademark humor and has a lot of potential for successive seasons.

What is Disenchantment Season 3 Trailer?
The trailer of Disenchantment Season 3 is still awaited. Meanwhile, you can enjoy the Season 2 Trailer here.
What is Disenchantment Season 3 Plot?
The official synopsis of Disenchantment as revealed by Netflix is as under-
“Princess duties call, but she’d rather be drinking. Free-spirited Bean exasperates the king as she wreaks havoc with her demon and elf pals.”
The sitcom series is set in Dreamland and revolves around the Princess Bean, who loves Alcohol more than anything else. She embarks on various misadventures with her two strange companions- Elfo, her elf companion, and Luci, the ‘personal demon.’ Their misadventures form an integral part of the sitcom and adult comedy.
The Princess Dean gets annoyed when she was informed about her imminent marriage to Prince Merkimer. She argued that her consent was not taken in the marriage. She decides not to be bowed down with this news and continues with her obnoxious adventures resulting in the fun and excitement for the viewers.
The series takes the Disney Princess tropes and turns them on their heads for a satirical portrayal of the dark side of our modern society, obviously through the power of animation. It provides a natural opportunity to comment on gender expectations. The standout feature of the show is not its goofball humor or its sneezy jokes but the dynamic journey of its three characters. The lead protagonist of the show manages to be delightfully messy in her activities and reminds us of our imperfections. Luci acts more than just a narrative device as she pushes Bean to misbehave through a mixture of cajoling and sinister agenda.
In Season 2, Bean travels with Dagmar to her homeland, where she learns about a mysterious prophecy and also rescues her old friend. We also see a ‘scientific man’ in the storyline who is treated with suspicion. Bean helps him to escape.
In the end, we witness drastic events staging the narrative in upheaval. Odual tries to usurp the kingdom as King Zog gets incapacitated, but Bean and Luci/Elfo try to thwart the usurping plan.
Season 3 is expected to continue the thread of Bean’s adventure for us to enjoy and muse over.
When is Disenchantment Season 3 Release Date?
Disenchantment Season 3 is expected to release on Netflix in September 2020. Disenchantment season 2 came out in September 2019, so we are expecting the same to happen this year too! We will keep you posted with the latest developments.
Who is Disenchantment Season 3 Cast?
The lead protagonist of the series is Princess Tiabeanie Mariabeanie de la Rochambeau Grunkwitz nicknamed as Princess Bean. Her role is played by Abbi Jacobson. Jacobson is famous for her roles in ‘Broad City.’
Eric Andre has played Luci, the ‘Princess Demon’ to Princess Bean. Andre has earned wide acclaims for his part in ‘The Eric Andre Show.’
Elfo is the naive elf companion who happens to like Candy. His role is played by Nat Faxo, also known for his works in ‘The Descendants.’
Other members of the cast crew include John DiMaggio as King Zog, Bean’s father. Tress MacNeille has played the role of Queen Ona, Bean’s stepmother, and Zog’s second mother. The character of Queen Dagmar, Bean’s biological mother, is played by Sharon Horgan. We also find Noel Fielding as Stan, the good-natured royal executioner who is also the manager of the torture chamber. Part two ended with a cliffhanger as we know, but not all of the characters were made stone, and many of them will be seen from the first episode of the third season.
When asked to Matt Groening, the series creator, he was excited about it and said, “We’re excited to continue this epic journey with Netflix. Stay tuned for more cranked-up suspense, infuriating plot twists, and beloved characters getting knocked off.”
