Netflix’s roster of “adult cartoons” — among them, Bojack HorsemanF Is For Family, and Big Mouth — is about to grow by one. From Matt Groening, the creator of the greatest animated series of all-time, comes Disenchantment, which takes place in the fictional medieval kingdom of Dreamland. The 10-episode season premieres on August 17 and you can watch the first footage from the show above.

“You’ve seen the future in Futurama, you’ve seen the present in Springfield, so what’s the obvious third move?” The clip asks. “The past, of course.” Groening described the show as being about “life and death, love and sex, and how to keep laughing in a world full of suffering and idiots, despite what the elders and wizards and other jerks tell you.” 

Disenchantment also features the voices of many Futurama and The Simpsonsalumni, including John DiMaggio, Billy West, Maurice LaMarche, Tress MacNeille, David Herman, Matt Berry, Jeny Batten, Rich Fulcher, Noel Fielding, and Lucy Montgomery.
