According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series – titled Disenchantment – has officially been picked up by Netflix for 20 episodes, and Abbi Jacobson, Nat Faxon, and Eric Andre will star. Here’s the logline:

The series, news of which first leaked in January 2016, takes place in a crumbling medieval kingdom called Dreamland. The series follows the misadventures of hard-drinking young princess Bean, her feisty elf companion Elfo and her personal demon Luci. Along the way, the trio will encounter ogres, sprites, harpies, imps, trolls, walruses and more of what Netflix called “human fools.”

John DiMaggio, Billy West, Maurice LaMarche, Tress MacNeille, David Herman, Matt Berry, Jeny Batten, Rich Fulcher, Noel Fielding, and Lucy Montgomery round out the voice cast for the show, which is slated to debut on Netflix sometime next year. “Matt Groening’s brilliant work has resonated with generations around the world and we couldn’t be happier to work with him on Disenchantment,” said Netflix exec Cindy Holland on the show. “The series will bear his trademark animation style and biting wit, and we think it’s a perfect fit for our many Netflix animation fans.”
