Attention all Duckburg fans: The Disney Channel announced that it has ordered a third season of its Emmy Award-nominated series “DuckTales”– before the second season has even begun!
The animated comedy-adventure series chronicles the adventures of Duckburg’s most famous trillionaire Scrooge McDuck (voiced by former “Doctor Who” David Tennant). He’s accompanied by his triplet grandnephews Huey, Dewey and Louie and his nephew Donald Duck, who is voiced by Disney Legend Tony Anselmo. The rest of the McDuck Manor team is also on the scene: fearless chauffer/pilot Launchpad McQuack; housekeeper Mrs. Beakley; and Mrs. Beakley’s granddaughter, Webby Vanderquack.
The original DuckTales animated series debuted in 1987 and was based on Donald Duck comic books created by Disney Legend Carl Barks. It lasted for 100 episodes and aired in more than 100 countries and 25 languages. As Disney’s first cartoon show produced for syndication it paved the way for several others, such as Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers and TaleSpin. It even gave rise to a theatrical release, DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp.
News of the season three pick-up was revealed in a video featuring Tennant, as well as Pudi, Schwartz and Moynihan recording together for the first time.
The second season of the show premieres on Saturday, Oct. 20 and airs at 7:30 a.m., EDT/PDT on Disney Channel, DisneyNOW and Disney Channel VOD.
