When we last left Disenchantment, our heroes Princess Bean (Abbi Jacobson), Elfo (Nat Faxon), and Luci (Eric Andre) were about to be burned at the stake by the impulsive, superstition-inclined populace. Fortunately, at the last moment, they fell through the ground and landed in a catacomb populated by Trogs, a bug-eyed subterranean community under the rule of Dagmar (Sharon Horgan), Bean’s mother, who’s still trying to manipulate her daughter to fulfill her mysterious destiny. We pick up as Bean and her two comrades try to get back above ground; meanwhile, on the surface, Odval (Maurice LaMarche) and the Druidess (Tress MacNeille) continue their plot to take over Dreamland as King Zøg (John DiMaggio) recovers from his gunshot wound. When Zøg discovers their scheme and plans to re-take control, Odval and the Druidess decide to bury him alive and rid the kingdom of their enemies forever. Little do they know that no one in Dreamland stays dead for very long, because Disenchantment’s internal logic regarding mortality, as well as the lines between medieval fantasy and other genres, remains as flexible as ever. This season, Bean and Elfo (and sometimes Luci) spend relatively little time in Dreamland because they’re constantly being whisked to other lands.
