I'm still going with some sort of merfolk. He has a strange connection with the sea that must mean something.

So, has there been any word on when this show will have more episodes? They said that what was initially put on Netflix was just part one of season 1. Its been many months since then. Generally it doesn't take this long when a season is split into two parts. If it takes much longer, then they might as well just call the next batch of episodes season 2.

Sometime this year. Nothing more specific.

But when is the second part of season 1?

Lone wolf? Hah! "Lone" wolves die out of hunger and loneliness. The wolf needs the pack, and the pack needs the wolf.

[up] The Twitter post says the show is returning. It doesnít actually say "season 2." Iím guessing the guy who posted the article isn't aware that the so-called season 2 is (apparently) the second half of season 1.

It looks like Netflix calling each batch a "season", regardless of how it was produced. Same thing for She-Ra "season 3" which is the second half of season 2.

Now that shows are premiering pretty much any time on the calendar, "season" is becoming an Artifact Title. Maybe we should switch to the UK's "series".

[up] That's too confusing, "series" is often used to refer to an entire TV show.

[up][up]I dunno, I've seen shows there grouped with labels like Season 1 Part 1.

Just a reminder, it's back September 20. They're just calling it "Part 2".

Well, at least Season 2 looks like it will be a significant improvement over Season 1, with less drunken antics and much more adventuring.

Yeah, it looks like it's going to focus on more Dark Fantasy adventures.

Probably the most surprising part of that trailer was that steampunk city and airship, which is certainly going to bring up a lot of questions. Probably because it looks so, I dunno, strange and anachronistic; it really stands out from the more medieval-inspired settings we've seen so far. Assuming that it's not just some secret place that was hidden from the rest of the Disenchanted world... Perhaps that airship and the city came from several centuries into the future, and Bean somehow travels through time to reach it?

Well Season 2 is premiering tomorrow, so does anyone else have anymore pre-release thoughts left?

Hopefully more adventuring, less sitcom slapstick. The show really likes its characters, but it needs more energy.

First two episodes at least have more adventuring and less sitcom

Oh and of course Jerry is more coherent in Heaven, he doesn't have brain damage from the crown anymore :P

Well, Season 2 ended with yet another cliffhanger finale. And it gave us more new questions than answers. Especially that scientist from Steamland, why was he hired to assassinate Zog? And Odval seems to have been entirely complicit in that plot.

Regarding Steamland, a friend of mine noticed that "Maru" was one of the dials on his autopilot. Maru is Dagmar's desert kingdom, which we first saw in season 1 to introduce the petrification elixir.

So that's probably a hint that Dagmar hired him to assassinate Zog as part of her plan to reclaim Bean.

I really dislike keeping Dagmar alive. It feels so convulted. Also I was hoping after the massive plot thread closing near the first few eps we'd be seeing "Fantasyrama" but I suppose this will do.

Lone wolf? Hah! "Lone" wolves die out of hunger and loneliness. The wolf needs the pack, and the pack needs the wolf.

Dagmar's the main villain of the show's Myth Arc. Of course they weren't going to kill her off in her second episode ever.

Four episodes in and so far I'm enjoying the season a lot more than the first. There feels like a lot more story, the setting is evolving in more interesting ways and the characters are growing on me. Zog in particular proves to be a Retired Badass forced to face his flaws and get back in the action. Bean is dealing with the machinations and ambitious of her mother and what that means for her. Luci manipulates the rules of hell to achieve his goals. And Elfo may have returned to life but is a lot more cynical over how he was treated by his friends, and his return is seemingly part of a grand scheme by GOD himself. Even Oona becomes a badass.

The story is also proven to be more developed than expected, with minor lines and jokes in the first season coming back around. Especially the only other elf to leave the Elf Village, Leavo, turns up as a pirate.
