March 15th will mark the end of the DuckTales reboot, but it sure looks like they will be going out with a bang as “The Last Adventure!” will be a 90-minute episode for the series finale. The battle with the family against Fiendish Organization for World Larceny (F.O.W.L.) will come to an end, one way or another, and this chapter of the DuckTales universe will come to a close. We do not know much about this episode other than the photo which has all of the characters at a birthday party.
We will get new episodes of the show starting February 22nd leading up to the finale as well as a DuckTales marathon on Monday, March 8th. There will also be three new “Chibi Tiny Tales” shorts that will roll out starting February 26th on Disney XD.
DUCKTALES – “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.). Returning guest voices include Lin-Manuel Miranda, Giancarlo Esposito, Julie Bowen, Jaime Camil, Jameela Jamil, Catherine Tate, Stephanie Beatriz, Paul F. Tompkins, Jim Rash, Margo Martindale, Jason Mantzoukas, John Hodgman, Retta, Kimiko Glenn, Libe Barer, Jaleel White and Amy Sedaris. Nol Wells and Riki Lindhome guest star as sisters, June and May, respectively.
It has been a good ride with the DuckTales reboot but there are a few things we would have probably done a bit differently. There was just too many characters to follow this time around and it made us sad we did not get more in depth with some of them. The Moon storyline was not up to our liking, we would have liked to have seen way more Magica in the reboot. The Darkwing Duck portion was a great way to introduce the character and we enjoyed the differences from the original.
Since DuckTales is now in the same universe, we can only hope that the Darkwing Duck reboot will allow us to visit these characters from time to time. Goodbye DuckTales, you will be missed. With this show and Big Hero 6 The Series now ending, what will carry the Disney XD brand now?
DISNEY’S ACCLAIMED ‘DUCKTALES’ CULMINATES IN AN EPIC 90-MINUTE SERIES FINALE, MONDAY, MARCH 15, ON DISNEY XD AND DISNEYNOW

Disney’s critically acclaimed “DuckTales” will solve some mysteries and rewrite history with an epic 90-minute series finale special MONDAY, MARCH 15, (7:00 p.m. EDT/PDT), on Disney XD and ungated in DisneyNOW. 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.
Culminating in a memorable, dramatic reading of the iconic “DuckTales” main title song, the cast met one final time via Zoom during the recent holiday season—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”).
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.”
The “DuckTales” series finale special will encore non-stop for 24 hours following its premiere. 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). In addition, three new “Chibi Tiny Tales” shorts, featuring Chibi-style versions of favorite “DuckTales” characters, will roll out beginning FRIDAY, FEB. 26, on Disney XD, DisneyNOW and Disney Channel YouTube.
Based on the Emmy Award-winning series treasured by a generation of viewers, “DuckTales” chronicles the high-flying adventures of Duckburg’s most famous trillionaire Scrooge McDuck; his mischief-making triplet grandnephews, Huey, Dewey and Louie; temperamental nephew, Donald Duck (voiced by Disney Legend Tony Anselmo); and the trusted McDuck Manor team: big-hearted, fearless chauffer/pilot Launchpad McQuack, no-nonsense housekeeper Mrs. Beakley and Mrs. Beakley’s granddaughter, Webby Vanderquack, resident adventurer and the triplet’s fierce friend.
“DuckTales” is a production of Disney Television Animation and carries a TV-Y7 parental guideline.
