What the hell, Disney!? Duck Tales has been cancelled

December 3rd, 2020 by Marc Comments

Well, 2020 continues to deliver the s#¢t sandwiches as one of our favourite animated shows just had the plug pulled on it.

Yes, Disney XD for some inexplicable reason, have cancelled Duck Tales after its currently-airing third season wraps. Probably so they can invest more time and resources in making more soulless live-action reboots of beloved animated movies.

Anyway, I digress.

“While physical production is wrapping, ‘DuckTales’ continues to be available on Disney Channels and Disney+ around the world and fans will get an epic season finale in 2021,” a Disney XD spokesperson said in a statement.

The new series hit screens in 2017 and, like the original series, followed Scrooge McDuck and his nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie as they crossed the world looking for artifacts and adventure… and finding it every week.

The show was a pure delight with great gags, fun characters and razor sharp writing… so why it’s being canned, I have no idea.

Adding to the ‘wut?’ of it all, it seems that Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, James Weaver, and Alex McAtee are aiming on producing a Darkwing Duck reboot through their Point Grey Pictures. Darkwing Duck was, of course, recently seen in Duck Tales.

I have no words, guys… but life is indeed, it seems, like a hurricane.

What say you all? Any Duck Tales fans in the audience? Let me know…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
