New Ducktales Series Coming To Disney XD In 2017 – Woo Ooh!

Life is like a hurricane, here in Duckburg

Race cars, lasers, aeroplanes …

Admit it, you just finished those lyrics didn’t you? If you were around in the late 80s/early 90s, then you’ve probably heard of Ducktales; and if you’ve heard of Ducktales, you probably love it! Ducktales was one of those cartoons that was not only great for kids; but was loved by adults as well. Even years later, you can go back and watch this Emmy-Award winning show – that’s right – and love it just as much as you did when you were a kid. Well, do I have some awesome news for you …

Earlier today, Disney XD Senior vice President, Programming & General Manager Marc Buhaj announced that Ducktales will be getting a new series in 2017. Now whereas the usual idea of a ‘reboot’ might scare a few; Buhaj assures us that the new series will not only “bring that same energy and adventurous spirit” as the original; but also honor the “storytelling and artistic showmanship” as the original which was based off of Disney Legend Carl Bark’s comic series.

The new series will star the same beloved characters as the old: Scrooge McDuck, Huey, Dewey, Louie, Launchpad McQuack, Donald Duck, Duckworth, Gyro Gearloose, Flintheart Glomgold, Magica DeSpell, Poe, Ma Beagle, the Beagle Boys, Mrs. Beakley, and Webbigail Vanderquack.


If the series is a hit, we might soon see some other series staples like Fenton Crackshell (aka Gizmoduck) – who was introduced in Season 2 – and maybe even other reboots like another Duck-favorite, Darkwing Duck. Though let’s take things one step at a time for now and just bask in the knowledge that in a few years Ducktales will once again grace our televisions – and hopefully be as great as the original.
