EXCLUSIVE: DuckTales Season 3 Premiere Date & Surprise Characters Revealed!
EXCLUSIVE: DuckTales Season 3 premieres April 4th and includes Daisy Duck, Goofy, TaleSpin, Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers, Darkwing Duck, and more!
Season 3 of DuckTales premieres April 4th with two episodes, Screen Rant has exclusively learned, and will expand the world of Duckburg by introducing more characters from the classic Disney Afternoon line-up. The new season will also feature an all-star cast of guest stars made up of some of the industry's most prolific voice actors.
Based on the classic Uncle Scrooge comics, the original DuckTales animated series premiered in 1987 and detailed the escapades of wealthy adventurer Scrooge McDuck, and his triplet grandnephews, Huey, Dewey and Louie. A reboot series which modernized the classic concept and featured David Tennant as the voice of Scrooge premiered to wide acclaim in 2017, becoming a smash hit and Emmy Award nominee. The second season of DuckTales featured a number of Easter Eggs paying homage to other animated series that were part of the Disney Afternoon animation block, along with the original DuckTales. Chief among these were the introduction of superhero Darkwing Duck and two appearances by sky pirate Don Carnage, who was a reoccurring villain in the show Tale Spin.
Season 3 of DuckTales will continue this trend when it launches in April, premiering characters whose appearance on the show was first teased in a poster released at San Diego ComicCon 2019. The new season will see appearances by Donald Duck's longtime love interest Daisy Duck and his old friend Goofy, as well as other characters from Tale Spin, Chip N' Dale Rescue Rangers and Darkwing Duck. The main story will also pit Scrooge and his friends and family against the Fiendish Organization for World Larceny (F.O.W.L.) - a sinister spy group from Darkwing Duck.
In addition to introducing more classic Disney characters into the reality of the new DuckTales, season 3 will also feature guest performances by some of the best voice actors in the business. This includes Giancarlo Esposito (Gustavo "Gus" Fring on Breaking Bad), Selma Blair (Liz Sherman in Hellboy), Kristofer Hivju (Tormund Giantsbane in Game of Thrones), Bebe Neuwirth (Lilith on Cheers), Retta (Donna Meagle in Parks and Recreation), Stephanie Beatriz (Rosa Diaz in Brooklyn Nine-Nine) and Jaleel White (Sonic in various Sonic The Hedgehog cartoons.) The cast for season 3 will also include Doug Jones, Clancy Brown, James Marsters, Hugh Bonneville, Abby Ryder-Fortson, Tress MacNeille, Bill Farmer, James Monroe Iglehart and Adam Pally.
None of the voice actors named in the official press release were tied to specific roles. It is presumed, however, that Tress MacNeille will be playing Daisy Duck and Bill Farmer will be voicing Goofy, as both actors are the official voices of those characters at Disney. Beyond that, it's anyone's guess what we may see and hear in season 3 of DuckTales. The only certainty is that it will be a duck-blur, whether or not we get any race-cars, lasers or airplanes.
DuckTales Season 3 premieres with two new episodes on Saturday, April 4, at 9:30 a.m. EDT/PDT, on Disney XD and DisneyNOW.
