The co-creators of Ducktales confirm the shows cancellation in a heartfelt message that is very true to the show’s inclination towards crash landings.
The creators of Ducktales shared a heartfelt message on Twitter, officially confirming the reports that season 3 will be the show’s last. The cartoon may be a reboot of a Disney classic, but this conception of the Duck clan is celebrated for going beyond expectations. The show’s success is in part due to its popular voice actors, including David Tennant (Doctor Who), Danny Pudi (Community), Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation), Bobby Moynihan (SNL), Beck Bennet (SNL), and Toks Olagundoye (Castle). But what really made this version shine is the fact that it knows its audience well, so it gifts viewers with better-developed characters, more daring plot lines, and a seemingly endless array of puns, references, and Easter eggs for fans to enjoy.
This understanding of the show comes straight from the top, as in the co-creators Matthew Youngberg and Francisco Angones. The two exemplify consistent passion for Ducktales, even in their goodbye letters that they shared on their Twitter accounts. The letter references the central theme to the show – family and adventure – then closes out with a Launchpad-style crash and a “woo-oo” from the extremely catchy theme song. Continue below to see the full letter and messages from various crew members:
There’s been a lot of chatter around this today so Frank and I wanted to make sure you heard from us directly. We love you and your passion for the show, and so grateful for our amazing crew. There’s a LOT of cool stuff to still look forward to #DuckTales pic.twitter.com/20uAe0oUWx

Writing for #Ducktales season 3 was one of the highlights of my life. The job also ended a long long time ago. The way the animation world works is weird. However, we really build up this season to an epic finale I can’t wait for everyone to see! https://t.co/tvnwLfjaig

Welp, Cat’s out of the bag. Working on #Ducktales was the best. I grew creatively and personally while on this special show. I miss & treasure my Duckburg family. HOWEVER, THE SEASON ISN’T OVER. There are amazing episodes still to come. Thank you for the continued love & support! https://t.co/brdzEGDEq7

As is often the case when beloved shows are a cancelled, fans have tried to reverse the decision with the #SaveDucktales2017. And while the show will be capped at 75 episodes on Disney XD, the characters could show up in content made for Disney+ as there are already rumors circulating about a Darkwing Duck spinoff. Until those rumors are confirmed, fans can strap in and enjoy the ride for the remaining 10 episodes. Ducktales will return next year on Disney XD.
