Is 'DuckTales' Season 4 happening? The 2017 reboot of 'DuckTales' which is in Season 3 may be in its final season if we have to go by what officials are saying. 

The star-studded 'DuckTales' reboot on Disney XD of the famous 1987 cartoon show with the same title where the cast includes David Tennant, Ben Schwarz, and Bobby Moynihan, has been getting a wide viewership for its stunningly animated frames and more. But according to a Twitter post and another report, Disney officials have confirmed the show to be ending with Season 3. 

The Network’s statement read, “The talented creative team, led by Matt Youngberg and Francisco Angones, have delivered exceptional storytelling with uniquely reimagined characters for three seasons of 75 episodes and more than 15 shorts,” adding, “While physical production is wrapping, 'DuckTales' continues to be available daily on Disney Channels and Disney+ around the world and fans will get an epic season finale in 2021.”

Matt Youngberg, the showrunner of 'DuckTales', took to Twitter to post their official statement which read, “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.”

The statement says, “We’ve always said that you have to go to every season of a show as if it’s your last, leave nothing on the table and have faith that your team will eventually be able to top it. With that in mind, we crafted Season 3 of 'DuckTales' as one focused on Legacy, on the future of the Duck family, and what that means, tying into questions and mysteries that were set up way back in the very first episode of the show. So ultimately, we were prepared for this season to be our last.” 



 

A petition to continue the Disney show has been shared on social media urging viewers not to let their favorite show come to an end when they might just save it. The petition says, “There are so many storylines that can happen in 'DuckTales' - the triplets' father, Webby's parents, Mrs Beakley's secret... SO MUCH. Please sign this. We might just save 'DuckTales'.”

A user wrote, “This show has been a bright spot during a very dark time. #SaveDuckTales #DuckTales” while another said, “Terrible decision to cancel @DuckTales #2020 has been terrible enough!” Some also thanked the showmakers for bringing back the Disney classic.

A viewer wrote, “@FrankAngones @theironwrist Thanks you guys so much for DuckTales!!! You both spearheaded a reboot that improved everything upon the original and became its own daring, interesting and original adventure! Hilariously clever too! I’ll miss it a bunch, woo-oo and beyond.”

Another said, “Thank you for everything, You, Matt, the whole crew and cast did a beautiful job with the show and I'm sure we're gonna love it to the end and beyond. I'm saddened but I will celebrate Ducktales as much as I can, it means the world to me so thank you always.”
