After the spectacular first season finale of DuckTales, we know that everyone is excited to hightail it right back to Duckburg. Luckily, we’ve got some ground-beaking news! Huey, Dewey, and Louie will bound back out there to keep rewriting history on Saturday, October 20, when the series’ sophomore season premieres at 7:30 a.m. EDT/PDT. But that’s not the best news we’re hatching today.
What could possibly be better than a second season of DuckTales? Well, how about a third season of Disney Channel’s animated series?! The news of a season three pickup was revealed today in this special announcement video, that lets us see the faces behind the feathers. In this video of their first-ever trio-recording session, Ben Schwartz (Dewey), Bobby Moynihan (Louie), and Danny Pudi (Huey) quack us up (and exasperate David Tennant as he prepares to deliver his lines as Uncle Scrooge McDuck).
Season two guest stars include Julie Bowen (Modern Family), Edgar Wright (Baby Driver director), Jack McBrayer (30 Rock), John Hodgman (Vacationland: True Stories from Painful Beaches), Jameela Jamil (The Good Place), Libe Barer (Sneaky Pete) and Lance Reddick (John Wick). The previously announced recurring cast for season two include Paget Brewster (Criminal Minds) as Della Duck, Donald Duck’s twin sister and his nephews’ long-lost mother; and Bernardo de Paula (Rio) and Arturo del Puerto (Fear the Walking Dead) as José de Carioca and Panchito Pistoles of The Three Caballeros.
We’re not sure yet what’s in store for season three, but we’re so glad that every day they’re out there making DuckTales!
