A long-time rumored new Netflix animated show developed by Matt Groening finally gets announced: Disenchantment, starring Abbi Jacobson, Nat Faxon, and Eric Andre.
This sounds interesting. It sounds it's going to be an adult centric animated fantasy, in contrast with how Futurama was a Science Fiction adult centric animated one.

Medieval Fantasy is my jam. A Medieval Fantasy comedy sounds amazing.
This show's gonna be fun.

I'm down for this. I like that Netflix is starting to become the home for more and more adult animation.
I know there are many sci-fi adult comedies, but fantasy adult comedies are more rare.
Oh, and the other cast members also include pretty much almost entire main cast of Futurama (John DiMaggio, Billy West, Maurice LaMarche, Tress MacNeille, and David Herman. Hopefully, Phil La Marr and Lauren Tom will also pop up at some point.) and a partial The Mighty Boosh reunion (Matt Berry, Rich Fulcher, and Noel Fielding).

Man, getting the band back together for another awesome show.
I like this idea already! Can't wait to see.
I hope it's the 90's Simpsons style humor and not the modern Family Guy style type of humor you usually see in adult animation.
Edit: I changed it to not, because I hate the modern FG type of humor.

Yes to 90's Simpsons humour, no to the Shittiness of FG's humour.
I changed my previous post, and I want it to be the old styled adult humor that made the Simpsons awesome.
David X. Cohen is also in the writing staff
Yeah, this is definitely "Bender's game" the series.
This show sounds interesting. We can expect this to basically be Futurama IN MEDIEVAL TIMES?

First ten episodes drop on Netlfix August 17th
Seems interesting but my question is why do all adult animated shows have to be comedies?
A Matt Groening driven show is honestly the last place I'd look into for an action fix.
Granted, with the likes of VRV's Last Man and fellow Netflix series Castlevania around, I think some Western companies are getting the message that non-anime adult titles are wanted in the states.
Yep, for better or worse depending on execution.

They can use adult humour typically
Comedies are what, so far, have been successful. TV Execs want more of the kind of stuff they've already seen. Remember, while we all like anime around here, anime is NOT popular in the US in numbers that impress industry execs (which is why Toonami is relegated to a couple of hours on Saturday night). Thus far, the execs haven't seen much reason to alter their opinion. Someone'll have to take a risk, and be massively successful with it, before that's likely to change.
Netflix is the wrong company to have this complaint with since their MO is to buy tons of material regardless of genre. Honestly, there’s a lot more animated action originals than comedy ones and this restores that balance. The sheer amount they’re continuing to invest shows it’s doing well for them.
Plus Matt Greoning. That’s a massive coup.

Yeah, Netflix isn't like a regular network. They don't need something to be hugely successful (by network standards) for it to be profitable for them.
Different distribution method = Different measures of success. Could a traditional network have gotten America to care about Devilman?
Back on topic, this looks interesting, and it’ll be nice to see Greoning tackle a fresh concept.

found a youtube video with pictures
It looks just like the simpsons,i only hope it's funnier and does not end up using the same jokes
Hey, if it can match the level of humor of the classic Simpsons and Futurama episodes, I'll consider it a success. One thing I feel I should note is how different Luci's design looks compared to almost every other character from Groening's work, so it looks like it comes from a completely different show. Not that it's a bad thing or anything, but it does make Luci stand out from the others from a mere glance.
I like the looks of the little demon that's following the two around (I think it's a demon, I don't know). I'll give this a look. It could be good.

How well does it match the trope?
