For the past few years, Disney XD’s critically acclaimed Ducktales has solved mysteries and rewritten history for a new generation of audiences. One part nostalgia and one part expanding the mythology, the new iteration of Ducktales was welcomed by all. However, like all good things, the show must come to an end. And they will be doing that in a very big way with a special 90 minute episode, with David Tennant (“Scrooge McDuck”), Danny Pudi (“Huey”), Ben Schwartz (“Dewey”), Bobby Moynihan (“Louie”), Kate Micucci (“Webby Vanderquack”), Beck Bennett (“Launchpad McQuack”), Toks Olagundoye (“Mrs. Beakley”) and Paget Brewster (“Della Duck”) all set to reprise their respective roles, and Lin-Manuel Miranda, Giancarlo Esposito, Julie Bowen, Jaime Camil and Jameela Jamil among the special guest stars also set to return.
Executive produced by Matt Youngberg and co-executive produced by Francisco Angones, the Emmy® Award-nominated “DuckTales” team wrapped production after 75 episodes and more than 15 shorts. The series continues to be available on Disney Channels and Disney+ around the world. In the U.S., the series is the #1 ratings driver on Disney XD and has reached over 234 million views on social media and YouTube since its launch in 2017.
In a joint statement, Youngberg and Angones said, “It has been an absolute honor to adventure along with the Duck Family for three seasons of derring-do bad and good luck tales. Ever since Carl Barks took a silly squawking duck from a funny animal cartoon and sent him looking for pirate gold, these characters have been part of a constantly evolving legacy of invention and reinvention. We set out to honor all those things that we’ve loved about ‘DuckTales’ since we were kids and introduce new parts of that legacy for families around the globe. Along the way, our stellar crew, unbelievable cast and endlessly supportive fans have become a bit of a family ourselves. And it has been a great joy to solve mysteries and rewrite history alongside them.”
Here’s the official plot synopsis for the “Ducktales” series finale.
“In the finale titled ‘The Last Adventure!,’ the future of adventuring hangs in the balance as the Duck family uncovers earth-shattering secrets in a final standoff with the Fiendish Organization for World Larceny (F.O.W.L.).”

Leading up to the finale, Disney XD will debut new episodes every Monday beginning FEB. 22 (7:00 p.m. EST/PST) and will present a week-long “DuckTales” marathon of every aired episode beginning MONDAY, MARCH 8 (7:30 p.m. EST/PST).
