Disney has confirmed that the “DuckTales” reboot on Disney XD will not continue past Season 3.  You can read their official statement regarding the cancellation below:

“The talented creative team, led by Matt Youngberg and Francisco Angones, have delivered exceptional storytelling with uniquely reimagined characters for three seasons of 75 episodes and more than 15 shorts,” a Disney XD spokesperson said in a statement. “While physical production is wrapping, ‘DuckTales’ continues to be available on Disney Channels and Disney+ around the world and fans will get an epic season finale in 2021.”

The new “DuckTales” series arrived on Disney XD in 2017.  The show was a reboot of the popular Disney Afternoon series which originally ran from 1987 to 1990.  The animated comedy-adventure series chronicles the high-flying adventures of Duckburg’s most famous trillionaire Scrooge McDuck; his mischief-making triplet grandnephews, Huey, Dewey and Louie; temperamental nephew, Donald Duck; and the trusted McDuck Manor team: big-hearted, fearless chauffer/pilot Launchpad McQuack, no-nonsense housekeeper Mrs. Beakley and Mrs. Beakley’s granddaughter, Webby Vanderquack, resident adventurer and the triplet’s fierce friend.

“DuckTales” stars David Tennant (“Doctor Who”) as Scrooge McDuck, Danny Pudi (“Community”) as Huey, Ben Schwartz (“Parks and Recreation”) as Dewey, Bobby Moynihan (“Saturday Night Live”) as Louie, Kate Micucci (“Garfunkel and Oates”) as Webby Vanderquack, Beck Bennett (“Saturday Night Live”) as Launchpad McQuack, Toks Olagundoye (“Castle”) as Mrs. Beakley, Disney Legend Tony Anselmo as Donald Duck, and Paget Brewster (“Criminal Minds”) as Della Duck, Donald Duck’s twin sister and the nephews’ mother.

All 101 episodes of the original “DuckTales” series and Season 1 and Season 2 of the new reboot series are available to stream now on Disney+.
