Galavant season 2: Watch the hilarious opening song!

Galavant season 2 opening 1A hilariously meta opening number has been released to reel us back into the magical, musical world of Galavant.

This new clip features “A New Season,” one of the 32 songs written by Alan Menken and Glenn Slater for the 10-episode (2 more than last season) second season of the show. The epic musical number features the entire main cast as well as returning guest star Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey) as a pirate captain. We catch up with all the main characters as well as hear their plans for their next adventure, all while singing and dancing to this catchy new tune.

Galavant season 2 opening 2The opening song also cheekily references the show’s low ratings, the small chance of renewal, and begs the audience to tune in for the next ten episodes even though other major events will be televised at around the same time the show will be airing.

“So in the weeks to come
Ignore the pageants that they’ll hold
Skip the football matches and the Globes made out of Gold
Screw all those Apprentices and every Bachelorette
And get into the miracle that no one thought we’d get!”

Galavant season 2 opening 3The end of the number may also have revealed a bit of a spoiler for the finale of the season, which will apparently involve an epic battle among three armies.

The whole sequence is a lively, clever, hilarious performance that reminds us just what makes Galavant so awesome. And the cast look like they’re having a lot of fun.

According to Deadline, this upcoming season boasts a new batch of high profile guest stars including Kylie Minogue, Nick Frost, Sheridan Smith, Matt Lucas, Robert Lindsey, and Simon Callow. Previous guest stars John Stamos, “Weird Al” Yankovic, and Bonneville will be returning from the first season to join the musical madness once more.

Don’t miss the first two episodes of Galavant season 2, which will air on January 3, 2016 on ABC.
