NME Festival blog: release date, trailers and everything we know


Spoilers ahead!

Here be spoilers

Cartoon fantasy-comedy Disenchantment is The Simpsons creator Matt Groening’s first production with Netflix. Taking place in the medieval kingdom of Dreamland, it follows Bean (a heavy drinking princess voiced by Abbi Jacobson), as she navigates her life as reluctant royalty alongside her personal demon Luci (voiced by Eric Andre) and elf companion Elfo (Nat Faxon) . All 10 episodes making up Part One of ‘Disenchantment’ were released on August 17th; but Netflix has since confirmed that a further 10 episodes, making up Part Two, are on their way. Here’s what we know so far!

Latest Updates

  • Netflix have confirmed that they’ve ordered another 20 episodes of the hit show suggesting the show will run for a few more years  
  • Matt Groening says he’s “excited” about the purchase and has told fans to expect more suspense, plot twists and “beloved characters getting knocked off”

Will there be a season 2 of Disenchantment?

 Technically, there will be a Part Two – given that Netflix originally commissioned 20 episodes of the series, which has been split into two parts, both with 10 episodes a piece.

Series creator Matt Groening confirmed to Collider that the Disenchantment team were actively working on the next 10 episodes of the series that will make up Part Two.

When will season 2 of Disenchantment be released?

There’s beeen no confirmation from Netflix when Part Two is expected, with no telling if the next 10 episodes – having already been commissioned by Netflix – will be released onto the streaming platform this time next year, or perhaps even earlier.

The news of more episodes will be welcome for viewers who watched Disenchantment’s finale, which ended on a massive cliffhanger; with the question of hard-drinking Princess Bean’s ultimate destiny, Elfo seemingly dead and personal demon Luci attacked by an un-seen assailant.

Netflix have confirmed that they have ordered an additional 20 episodes. The second part of Season 1 will air in 2019 and this latest purchase suggests a further two seasons could now air in 2020 and 2021.

Who’s in the cast for Disenchantment season 2?

All of the main cast of Disenchantment will probably return for the second part of the series – from Broad City’s Abbi Jacobson as Bean, Eric Andre as Luci, John DiMaggio as Luci, Sharon Horgan as Bean’s mother Queen Dagmar and Tess MacNeille as Bean’s fishy step-mother Queen Oona.

 Of course, if you’ve watched the series finale of Part One, you’ll be aware that things aren’t looking good for everyone’s favourite cartoon elf Elfo, so Nat Foxton may not be returning.

Is there a trailer for Disenchantment season 2?

 Nope, not yet. So far no details about Part Two of Disenchantment has been released yet by either Groening or Netflix, but check back here soon.

Seriously, what happened with Elfo?

 Who says Games of Thrones was the only show with shock character exits?

Elfo was killed by an arrow wood in episode 9, but was knocked out of his coffin in the finale episode thanks to the Queen fight. Our last glance of Elfo was his body in the sea, getting dragged away by a mysterious figure in a mid-credits scene.

All signs point to this mysterious figure being a mermaid, so hopefully we’l finally get to visit Mermaid Island in Part Two and see Elfo resurrected.

What’s going to happen in season 2 of Disenchantment?

 A lot happened in the finale of Disenchantment that left several doors very wide open for our return to Dreamland. There were hints that Princess Bean has a prophetic destiny to fulfil; with Queen Dagmar telling Zog that she’s involved in “a dark battle of a hundred centuries and our daughter’s destiny.”

Ominous, right?

Let’s not forget Elfo’s death, Luci’s attack by an un-seen opponent, Queen Dagmar’s efforts to kill Zog or the series ending with Bean and her mother on a ship with mysterious creatures, setting sail “for the homeland and glorious future.”

Basically, there’s a lot of stuff for Groening and co. to be getting on with, so expect an action packed second instalment of Disenchantment when the next 10 episodes drop.

In a statement released after Netflix confirmed that they were ordering a further 20 episodes, Matt Groening said in a segment: “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.”

NME Festival blog: Pete Davidson hits out Kanye West’s SNL Trump speech: ‘Being mentally ill is not an excuse to act like a jackass’


‘Make Kanye 2006 again’

Pete Davidson took to Saturday Night Live last night to hit out at Kanye West‘s recent controversial appearance, remarking that ‘being mentally ill is not an excuse to act like a jackass’. Watch his full speech below.

Last week, West gave a speech at the end of the show, which was not broadcast. It was captured by Chris Rock, who shared it on his Instagram Story. In the speech, the rapper discussed Trump, his aims to run for President, and being “bullied” about his Make America Great Again hat. SNL‘s Kenan Thompson then spoke out about West’s behaviour, saying he held the show’s cast members “hostage”.

Now, Davidson has had his say on the episode – giving a speech on SNL while wearing a hat that read ‘Make Kanye 2006 Again’.

“What Kanye said after he went off the air last week was one of the worst, most awkward things I’ve ever seen here,” said Davidson. “And I’ve seen Chevy Chase speak to an intern.”

Davidson continued: “He started by saying people backstage tried to bully him into not wearing it. He wore it all week. Like, nobody told him not to wear it. I wish I bullied you. I wish I suggested that, you know, it might upset some people, like, your wife or every black person ever.”

“You know how wrong about politics you have to be for me to notice?” Davidson added. “Kanye is a genius, but like a musical genius. Like Joey Chestnut is a hot dog-eating genius, but I don’t want to hear his opinion about things that aren’t hot dog-related.”

Referring to Kanye’s bi-polar diagnosis, Davidson ended by urging West to take his medication because “being mentally ill is not an excuse to act like a jackass.”

Speaking of his diagnosis earlier this year, West said: “I’m so blessed and so privileged because think about people that have mental issues that are not Kanye West, that can’t go and make that [album] and make you feel like it’s all good.”

Meanwhile, Charlamagne Tha God will host a live mental health talk with Kanye West later this month. ‘The Breakfast Club’ radio DJ and the rapper will come together to discuss issues surrounding mental health at a TimesTalk event held at New York’s Town Hall on October 17.

Charlamagne Tha God announced the talk on his Instagram page, sharing a poster for the event. “Oct 17: Join me for a @timestalkswith @kanyewest about Anxiety, Therapy, PTSD and all the other Mental Health stuff we don’t discuss enough,” he wrote in the caption. “Also discussing my new book #ShookOne “Anxiety Playing Tricks On Me” moderated by @joncaramanica of the @nytimes. Buy tickets before they’re gone link in my bio!!!”

West has also revealed he plans to finish recording his new album ‘Yhandi’ in “what is known as Africa”.

“I need to go, I need to find out what it’s really called,” he said. “Just grab the soil and be and cook food, five meals a day so the metabolism stays up, have my kids in the studio, and have the mic in the open so you can hear nature while we’re recording.”
