Disney XD has ordered a second season of its original animated series Ducktales, months in advance of the show’s network premiere.
Ducktales, based on the 1980s animated series of the same name, will premiere later this summer on the boys-targeted network. The series will feature the voices of David Tennant as Scrooge McDuck; Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz and Bobby Moynihan as the voices of Huey, Dewey and Louie, respectively; Kate Micucci as Webby Vanderquack; Beck Bennett as Launchpad McQuack and Toks Olagundoye as Mrs. Beakley.
Ducktales will be executively produced by Matt Matt Youngberg (Ben 10: Omniverse), with Francisco Angones (Wander Over Yonder) serving as story editor and co-producer and Sean Jimenez (Gravity Falls) serving as art director.
“Fans around the world are eager and we're looking forward to introducing viewers to the all-new DuckTales,” said Marc Buhaj, Disney XD senior vice president of programming and general manager in a statement. “This early season two order is a testament to the quality work the creative team, led by Matt and Frank, and the cast are delivering."
