Disney XD Reportedly Cancels ‘DuckTales’ Series

462

Season 3 of the “DuckTales” reboot series is nearing its conclusion on Disney XD, and now there are rumblings on social media which paint a dismal future for the franchise.

According to Drew Taylor, associate editor for Collider, the popular show has been shelved and will not return for a fourth season.  Taylor shared the news on Twitter which you can see below:

When asked why he thought this was the final season, Taylor replied, “Because the offices haven’t been open for a while now (somebody told me when they closed up shop) and most of the key creative talents have moved onto other, equally exciting projects!”

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.

Disney and Disney XD have not officially announced a cancellation of the series, but we will keep you updated with any further updates.

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+.
