ABC has released the opening musical sequence from the first episode of the second season of the musical comedy, ‘Galavant,’ which you can find embedded below. The new season premieres January 3, 2016 with back-to-back episodes. The ten-episode series will run each Sunday night for five-consecutive weeks.
Having discovered the dark side of Madalena, our dashing hero’s adventures continue as he embarks on an unlikely bromance with King Richard and fights to rekindle the romance with his true love, Isabella.
In the first episode, titled ‘A New Season… aka Suck It Cancellation Bear,’ bad advice results in Galavant and the crew being shipwrecked, and they end up traveling by foot in order to get back to Richard’s kingdom. Later, Galavant and King Richard find themselves at The Enchanted Forest Pub in West Hollow-wood where they are forced into working there by the owner who sees Galavant in a different light. Meanwhile in Valencia, Madalena rules as Queen, and Gareth demands his due when he is announced as King, with Sid as his assistant. Elsewhere in Hortensia, Isabella is imprisoned in her jewel box by her 12-year-old cousin as her parents prepare for their wedding.
Followed by ‘World’s Best Kiss’ in which Galavant and Richard see a fortune teller who is able to connect Galavant to Isabella using a crystal ball. Isabella receives Galavant’s ‘call’ as she is plotting her escape from Hortensia. Unfortunately, it’s a ‘bad connection,’ and Isabella hears only every other word. She is devastated by the call, but Galavant believes it went well. He promises to return to her as soon as he drops Richard off at his castle. The only problem is that Richard’s castle seems to have disappeared.
