Good news, Futurama fans! The man behind that animated sci-fi show – and another TV toon about a family in the small town of Springfield, the name of which escapes us at the moment – returns to your screens with a brand new series. Matt Groening's latest venture follows a liquor-swilling princess (voiced by Broad City's Abbi Jacobson) as she battles all sorts of fantasy-based beasties, enemies and other Tolkienesque obstacles. Luckily, she's got a sidekick elf to help out; unluckily, she has a "personal demon" nagging at her as well – we're going to assume that it's an actual demon and not a colloquialism.
