What happened in Disenchantment season 2?

Disenchantment season 3 is weeks away from its premiere on Netflix. If you need a refresher on what happened in season 2 of the series, then here’s everything you need to remember going in.

While Netflix’s first part of Disenchantment fromThe Simpsons and Futurama creator Matt Groening definitely needed time to find its footing, the second part of the show really solidified it as a wild and fun series, harkening back to the best seasons of Futurama. It only made the wait from September 2019 to January 2021 feel so much longer for it.

If you don’t have time for a rewatch of Disenchantment, then here are the basic plot points that you need to know when going into season 3 of the series. These are just the basics, of course, to jog your memory versus an in-depth look into the series.

Princess Bean (voiced by Abbi Jacobson) did not have a very easy season 2, like at all. Her mother, Dagmar (voiced by Sharon Horgan), was revealed to be an evil enchantress focused on ruling Dreamland. While Bean is able to escape her mother, she and Luci (voiced by Eric Andre) have to go to Hell in order to bring Elfo (voiced by Nat Faxon) back to life. In order to escape Hell, Luci gives up his immortality for his friends. Bean is not free of her mother either, who haunts her dreams.

The elves, after the destruction of their land, have moved to Dreamland as well, living in the slums. During the course of the season, they’ve had a rude awakening of sorts to the realities of the world from getting sick after drinking dirty laundry water to overtaxation by King Zog (voiced by John DiMaggio). Zog, meanwhile, has been dealing with his first wife being evil and a divorce from his second wife, Oona (voiced by Tress MacNeille), who left Dreamland to become a Pirate Queen. While he did fall in love again, he remains alone in his rule and trying to repair the relationship with his daughter.

The biggest change in Disenchantment season 2, however, is the introduction of Steamland. When a rogue airship sets fire to Elf Alley, the pilot of the ship is imprisoned as a sorcerer. Bean, however, learns all about “sky-ence” (science) from him and helps him escape. During the escape, she’s taken to Steamland, which is Dreamland’s steampunk counterpart. She learns of an assassination plot against her father and, taking a gun as proof of “sky-ence”, she tries to inform them of the plot.

Good old sexism, however, from her Zog’s advisors gets in the way. In the fight, the gun goes off, which shoots Zog. His prime minister Odval (Maurice LaMarche) jumps on the opportunity: Bean and her friends are arrested and Prince Derek (voiced by Tress MacNeille) installed as the throne as a puppet king. Bean and her friends are able to escape to remove the bullet from Zog, helping him, but they are recaptured.

Before being burned at the stake, however, the trio fall through the ground, landing amongst the Trogs, which are subterranean elves. More terrifyingly, however, Dagmar is there, waiting for them.

And that’s where Disenchantment season 3will pick up on Jan. 15, 2021 on Netflix.
