Disney has officially announced that Della Duck is returning to “DuckTales!” In the finale for the first season, the long-missing mother of Huey, Dewey, and Louie, returned. Della Duck was voiced by Paget Brewster, who has signed on to return as a recurring character in Season 2.
According to reports from Deadline, Della will remain on as a recurring character for the highly anticipated second season meaning that her story is far from over. In the finale, it was revealed that Della Duck is the twin sister of Donald Duck and they were Scrooge McDuck’s original companions for his international adventures. In the closing moments of the first season finale, fans learned that Della is stranded on the moon with no way to return or contact her family, even though she clearly longs to do so.
“DuckTales” continues to have one of the best voice casts on any animated series and adding Brewster is a huge win. The series already features the voices of former Doctor Who star David Tennant as Scrooge McDuck; alongside Danny Pudi as Huey, Ben Schwartz as Dewey, Bobby Moynihan as Louie, Kate Micucci as Webby Vanderquack; Beck Bennett as Launchpad McQuack; and Toks Olagundoye as Mrs. Beakley.
The series was renewed for a second season on March 2, 2017, before the first season aired. The second season will premiere in Late 2018.
