In early 2023, the co-creator and executive producer of “Phineas and Ferb,” Dan Povenmire, announced a revival of the series, featuring 40 brand-new episodes divided into two seasons.
“Phineas and Ferb,” an animated comedy series, follows the adventures of Phineas Flynn and his English stepbrother, Ferb Fletcher, on their summer vacation. Each day, the boys and their friends take on some ambitious new project, sometimes to help someone in need, but often just to create something fun. This annoys the boys’ sister, Candace, who constantly attempts to get them in trouble by revealing their actions to Mom. Meanwhile, across town, the wannabe-evil scientist Dr. Doofenshmirtz continually attempts to take over the Tri-State area with his various inator devices, and Perry the Platypus, the boys’ pet and a secret agent, consistently foils his plans on behalf of the O.W.C.A and his commanding officer, Major Mongram. At the end of each episode, the two plots intersect to erase all traces of the boys’ project just before Candace can successfully show it to Mom.
Speaking with The Pop Insider at New York Comic Con, Povenmire shared some new details about the upcoming revival series including when the show will take place. You can see what Povenmire said below:
It’ll probably be the following summer. It’s basically the same show as before, we’ve got a lot of the same staff. We realized we hadn’t run out of ideas yet. Somebody called and said, ‘Want to make more?’ and we’re like yeah. We’ve always said, “Yeah sure, we’ll do that.” I think it came about because the show’s been in the top five on Disney+ since they started. I think with the pandemic, a lot of people went back to that for a comfort show and I think that really pushed the numbers up, and they were like, “We should do more of this show.”
Not too many details are known about the revival, however, Povenmire is confirmed to reprise the voice of Dr. Heinz Doofenschmirtz. Most of the original cast, which includes Vincent Martella, Thomas Brodie-Sangster and Ashley Tisdale, is expected to return, however, nothing has been confirmed.
No official release date has been announced, but recently, while responding to fans’ inquiries on his TikTok page, Povenmire hinted at the release timeframe for the revived series. Although the project is in its initial stages, he indicated that the series is expected to debut in 2024.
“Phineas and Ferb” aired on the Disney Channel between 2007-2015 for four seasons and 132 episodes in total. All four seasons are available to stream now on Disney+.
