NETFLIX has axed its popular comedy series after five seasons as the streamer reveals when the final episodes will air.
The streaming platform has announced the cancelation of several fan-favorite shows from its programming in recent months.
Netflix revealed that the Matt Groening-created animated comedy series Disenchantment’s final season will be available to stream on September 1.
Matt Groening, 69, is the creator of two other well-known animated properties, Futurma and the longest running American Primetime television series in history The Simpsons.
Disenchatment follows the “misadventures of a hard-drinking princess, her feisty elf companion, and her personal demon.”
The streamer revealed that series’ fifth season, which will include 10 episodes, will also be its late with the teaster trailer uploaded to YouTube.
The description of the video read: “We watched Bean grow, from reluctant Princess to defiant rebel, and now, come Part 5, her journey will finally come to an epic finale – feat. the ultimate confrontation against Queen Dagmar, her evil mother.”
It continued: “Part 5 will be Disenchantment’s final, yet biggest Season. To save Dreamland from Queen Dagmar’s wrath, Princess Bean must vanquish her mother and outrun a prophecy that foretells she will kill the one she loves… Every decision. Every victory. Every loss… it’s all led to this. So saddle up, and drink up. Bean’s final misadventure will be the greatest one of all.”
In 2017, Disenchantment received a 20-episode order at Netflix with two batches of 10 episodes being released as part of the first season, as reported by Variety.
The voice cast includes Broad City’s Abbi Jacobson, Bad Trip’s Eric Andre, Comedian of the Year’s Nat Faxon, and many other houshold names.

Netflix recently canceled the popular fantasy drama Sweet Tooth less than a week after the new season dropped on the platform.
But, it is bringing the show back for one final season.
The upcoming third season of Sweet Tooth will be its last, Deadline reported.
Filming for the third season has already wrapped in New Zealand, even though season two just dropped on Netflix last week.
Season two gained 48.3million hours of watch time during the first four days of its release, despite its cancellation.
“Season 3 is an Arctic story with exciting new adventures and what we hope will be a satisfying conclusion to this epic tale. Gus is going to see a side of the world and humanity that he didn’t see in Season 1 or 2,” creator, showrunner and executive producer Jim Mickle told the outlet.
The series stars Stefania LaVie Owen as Bear, Naledi Murray as Wendy, Marlon Williams as Johnny Abbot, Christopher Sean Cooper Jr. as Teddy, Yonas Kibreab as Finn, and James Brolin as the narrator.
As the show comes to an end, some cast members are getting promoted to regulars – Rosalind Chao (Zhang) and Amy Seimetz (Birdie).
The last season will also welcome Cara Gee (The Expanse) and newcomer Avazhan Dalabayeva (Nuka) as regulars.
Sweet Tooth is based on the DC comic books by Jeff Lemire and follows Gus, who is part-deer, part-boy and leaves his home to find the world destroyed by a tragedy.
In April, Netflix executives canceled another show, leaving fans in an uproar.
The Latina-centric series Freeridge recently got the boot from Netflix, causing many fans to be angry with the streaming platform.
Freeridge, a spin-off from the successful Netflix series On My Block, aired in early February.
It has been barely two months since its debut, and the big-wigs at Netflix already decided that they wouldn’t be renewing the show for season two, Rolling Stone reported.
The soon-to-be-axed series seemed like a show that Netflix bosses were to be invested in since they ordered the spin-off in 2021.
It followed the final season of the hit show On My Block, which wrapped the same year.
GONE TOO SOON
Freeridge appeared to be promising, given that the show had some of the same characters from On My Block.
Peggy Blow, who plays Mariluna, and Paula Garcés, who plays Geny Martinez, were going to reprise their roles in the short-lived spinoff.
After news broke of Freeridge getting removed from Netflix’s roster, fans took to Twitter to express their frustration.
“This one is a bummer to report: @Netflix has decided to cancel @Freeridge after a single season. It’s the latest Latine show to get chopped,” one fan tweeted.
“Freeridge was cancelled?!?! This is so so stupid…,” another fan added in a tweet.
A third person contributed: “Dang. I enjoyed #Freeridge.”
