Season four ended with Bean presumed dead, her brothers and father held captive, and the Devil and Queen Dagmar coming around to mess things up and rule with an iron fist. The trailer spends most of its time recapping the events of the show so far, but the footage we see of the final season teases one epic adventure.
Though technically airing as a season, Netflix is calling the new episodes of “Part 5” of the series. This is a common tactic among streamers, particularly when it comes to animation, in order to avoid calling the new batches of episodes “season” and therefore avoid paying animation writers and artists what they’re due, which is just one of the many ways the studios have become cartoon villains and one of the issues that has led to the current WGA and SAG-AFTRA strike.
“Disenchantment” Part 5 premieres on Netflix on September 1, 2023. Check out the synopsis below:
To save Dreamland from Queen Dagmar’s wicked rule, Bean must vanquish her mother and outrun a prophecy that foretells she will kill someone she loves. The stakes are as high as ever as our heroes face Satan, a headless corpse, an evil scientist and most terrifying of all- their true destiny.
