Netflix has ordered 20 additional episodes of Disenchantment, the latest animated series from The Simpsons and Futurama creator Matt Groening.
This means that, in addition to the first 10 episodes that arrived this past summer and the previously ordered 10 episodes set to arrive in 2019, 20 more episodes of the show will also be arriving in 2020 and 2021.

About a month ago we saw the first trailer for Disenchantment. The animated fantasy comedy series is the latest from none other than Matt Groening, creator of The Simpsons and Futurama.
That trailer was just a teaser, sadly, offering only a teeny tiny peek at the new show. But thankfully we didn’t have to wait long to see more. At San Diego Comic-Con a new trailer was unveiled. This time around it’s an official trailer, which gives us a much better look at how Groening’s latest title is looking.
You can find a little bit more info on Disenchantment in the form of a synopsis, find out some of the actors who voice the characters (including a few names which will no doubt make Groening’s many fans very happy), and check out the official trailer along with a recently released poster below.
While it’s not the full resurrection fans are hoping will one day happen again, and it’s not that 3D remake we saw recently, it has been announced that Futurama will indeed live again…for at least one day.
In something you’d think would have happened a long, long time ago, the characters of Futurama will appear in a crossover episode of The Simpsons this November 9th. Both series were created by Matt Groening, so it makes all the sense in the world to have the two animated worlds meet up; it just took a while.
It’s here! The brand new episodes of Futurama we’ve been begging and pleading to get for years now are finally set to begin at 10pm tonight on Comedy Central! In all honesty, it strangely still feels like we have a lot longer to wait, but the excitement has been building this week knowing the time has arrived.
This post is in an attempt to do two things. One: to remind you that the show is back, and begins tonight…just in case you had forgotten. Two: to make sure that every single one of you who has even the slightest bit of love for Futurama puts every TV you can on at 10pm! Tonight brings not one, but two new episodes, and the more viewers that they get for each episode, the better chance we have at getting more than just this one new season. The goal wasn’t just to get this show back, but to get it back for a long, long time, much like we saw with Family Guy. If you have DVR, set every new episode to record, even if you’re watching as it airs. Do what needs to be done!
Back in the beginning of March, it was announced that the desperately-wanted return of Futurama would finally make its second series debut on June 24, 2010 at 10pm EST. Now the very first image from the show’s big comeback has been released, and it’s a bit strange.
The Matt Groening and David X. Cohen series, which ran for four seasons from 1999 to 2003, was canceled by Fox after they severely-mishandled the show and moved it all over the TV schedule thanks to sporting events and not-so-bright executives. This didn’t sit well with fans, and as you know they’ve been fighting to get it back ever since. A fifth season in the form of four direct-to-DVD movies proved the fan-base was stronger than ever, and the sixth season was finally greenlighted almost one year before it’s scheduled return to your TV.
