Ducktales - Season 2
Note: Episodes in this season are presented based on the official order of the season as stated by co-developer Francisco Angones. This may not reflect the order in which they initially aired or production number.
The second season was mainly written by the same team of staff writer who wrote season 1 - series co-creator, co-producer and story editor Francisco Angones, Madison Bateman, Colleen Evanson, Christian Magalhaes and Bob Snow. Additional writers include the returning Rachel Vine and storyboard artist Emmy Cicierega. Executive producer Matt Youngberg and Francisco Angones were joined by season one line producer Suzanna Olson, who was promoted to producer.
The season two episodes were directed by returning directors Matthew Humphreys and Tanner Johnson, as well as storyboard artist Jason Zurek (assisted by fellow storyboard artist Jason Reicher for one episodes). Sam Riegel continued as dialogue director.
Following the success of the first season, another 30 DuckTales episodes were ordered. The first ten of these made out the two five-part serials "Time is Money" and "Super DuckTales", while another 17 followed as a part of season 3 (the remaining three aired as a part of season 4). Additionally, the Valentine special "A DuckTales Valentine", which hadn't been included in the original 30 episode order, was added and rounded out the third season.
The second season was produced by series newcomer Bob Hathcock, who also served as supervising director starting with "Super DuckTales". Hathcock was joined by Liza-Ann Warren as an assistant producer, the show's original developer Jymn Magon as the producer of "Time is Money", and season one veteran David Wiemers & Ken Koonce as co-producers of "SuperDuckTales" and subsequent episodes.
"Time is Money" was written by Jymn Magon and his season one collaborator Bruce Talkington, with participation by series veteran Len Uhley and newcomers Bruce Coville (his only DuckTales work) and Doug Hutchinson, and directed by the returning Terence Harrison, in collaboration with Jamie Mitchell, James T. Walker, and series producer Bob Hathcock. James T. Walker also directed "Super DuckTales", which was written by Wiemers & Koonce.
James T. Walker directed the vast majority of the post-"Super DuckTales" season two episodes, with Jamie Mitchell co-directing some of them, and Mircea Mantta directing "A DuckTales Valentine", his sole "DuckTales" work.
Minor recurring characters to make their debut during the second season include Buffy Parvenu (Joan Gerber), Oprah Webfeet (Tress MacNeille), Dr. Von Swine (Howard Morris) and Walter Cronduck (various actors). The Mayor of Duckburg, who had made one non-speaking appearance during the first season, becomes a returning character, voiced by Chuck McCann.
Recurring season 1 characters, Doofus Drake, Bankjob Beagle, Babyface Beagle, and Bugle Beagle make their final appearances with non-speaking cameo roles in "Super DuckTales". Lord Battmountain and other members of the Association of Status Seekers and Duckburg Explorers Club recur in non-speaking cameos, while Glittering Goldie and Vacation Van Honk are absent for season 2 and 3, but returned for one final appearance each in season 4.
Recurring characters Gladstone Glander Magica De Spell, Mrs. Featherby, Tootsie the Triceratops, Mrs. Quackenbush, John D. Rockefeather, Lady de Lardo, Buffy Parvenu, Oprah Webfeet, Dr. Von Swine, and the members of the Association of Status Seekers and Duckburg Explorers Club do not return past the second season. Donald Duck also didn't any appearances in this or the next season but made a poster cameo.
Disney unveiled the DuckTales season 2 trailer and poster at San Diego Comic-Con, confirming the September 2019 premiere. A reboot of the 1987 animated series, DuckTales chronicles the adventures of trillionaire Scrooge McDuck after being reunited with his nephew, Donald Duck. Tasked with babysitting mischievous triplets Huey, Dewey, and Louie, Scrooge and the ducklings embark on treasure-hunting expeditions.
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. Presumably that problem will be solved in the second season when it debuts later this year on Disney Channel.
With Season 3 of Disney's DuckTales set to arrive with two new episodes on Saturday April 4th (9:30 a.m. EDT/PDT) on Disney XD and DisneyNOW, we wanted to make sure you were up to speed on the story so far. We've had two seasons of 47 episodes (and a number of animated shorts) and quite a few adventures with racecars, lasers, aeroplanes and the sort. But the biggest draw to the newly rebooted classic cartoon is the many, many characters from the wider Duckverse that DuckTales incorporates and how they relate to one another.
That trend continues in Season 3. Featuring appearances by classic Disney characters Daisy Duck, Goofy and favorites from TaleSpin, Chip 'n' Dale Rescue Rangers and Darkwing Duck, the new season finds Scrooge McDuck and the Duck family embarking on a globetrotting hunt for the world's greatest lost artifacts, with a secret organization from Scrooge's past, the Fiendish Organization for World Larceny (F.O.W.L.), trying to stop them at any cost. We'll have much more on Season 3 soon, but for now, here's a catch-up on the story of DuckTales so far:
The biggest bad of the season, however, is Magica De Spell, who uses her niece to carry out her nefarious plans and sow dissension among Scrooge and his family. Scrooge had previously trapped the sorceress in his Number One Dime, but Magica uses the power of a lunar eclipse to break free and possess Lena in order to unleash everyone's shadows on Duckburg. In the end, it's Lena's seeming sacrifice that robs Magica of her power and forces her to retreat; however, Lena has merged with her shadow self and isn't really gone, she just has to find another way to communicate with Webby and the others.
Adventures this season take Scrooge and Crew to a marine science research station, a Brazilian town to celebrate the "Feast of the Flower", a Christmas-themed time-travel tale akin to A Christmas Carol, Ludwig von Drake's Arctic doomsday vault, Fort Duckburg, and even a trip into their own dreams.
Glomgold, a.k.a. Duke Baloney, starts off as the main nemesis this season as, having recovered from a bout of amnesia (which actually made him a better person overall). He challenges Scrooge to a winner-take-all battle to see who the bigger billionaire really is. This culminates in Glomgold using Gyro's time-stopping device to mess with Scrooge's mind, causing him to succumb to the fictional "gold fever." However, Scrooge and the team wise up to the plan and fake Scrooge's death to trick Glomgold into confessing. Even Louie manages to trick Glomgold into giving up his own ill-gotten gold this season, so when the infamous villain actually manages to help out his fellow members of Duckburg later on, you find yourself actually cheering him on a bit for it.
The second season finale of the rebooted DuckTales concludes numerous arcs that have been building across the show's first two seasons. With the arrival of the invading Mooninites in Duckburg, the entire world of DuckTales comes together to try and stand up to the assault on their planet.
The cable channel has ordered a third season of the animated series ahead of the season two premiere. Stars Danny Pudi (Huey), Ben Schwartz (Dewey) and Bobby Moynihan (Louie) made the announcement in the video below, with a bit of help from co-star David Tennant (Scrooge McDuck).
The Ducktales cast also includes Toks Olagundoye, Kate Micucci, Beck Bennett and Disney legend Tony Anselmo as Donald Duck. Guest-stars for season two include Julie Bowen, Edgar Wright, Jack McBrayer, John Hodgman, Jameela Jamil, Libe Barer, Lance Reddick, Paget Brewster, Bernardo de Paula and Arturo del Puerto.
After its highly successful 2017 panel, DuckTales made another appearance at San Diego Comic Con this past weekend. Attendees got to see a new trailer that previews the rest of season one, as well as hear some interesting tidbits on what season two might have in store.
Brewster will recur next season alongside David Tennant as Scrooge McDuck; Danny Pudi, Ben Schwartz and Bobby Moynihan as the respective voices of Huey, Dewey and Louie; Kate Micucci as Webby Vanderquack; Beck Bennett as Launchpad McQuack; and Toks Olagundoye as Mrs. Beakley.
DuckTales season 2 is debuting on the Disney Channel on Saturday, Oct. 20, but fans already have a reason to celebrate. The cable channel announced on Friday that the series had already been renewed for a third season.
When Matt Youngberg and Francisco Angones set out to reboot beloved Disney show DuckTales for the modern era, many fans expressed outrage. Over the course of two seasons, however, the duo proved that they were as big fans of the original DuckTales as anyone else. The reboot has featured numerous references and callbacks to the original series that aired in 1987. In an interview with D23, Angones explained how those references will pay off in the upcoming Season 3 of the show:
The first season of the reboot of DuckTales was used to establish the main storyline of the series. The richest duck in the world, Scrooge McDuck, finds himself unexpectedly stuck taking care of his three grand-nephews after their uncle Donald Duck departs on his own voyage.
With the second season, the mythology of the show expanded to include guest appearances from the Rescue Rangers, references to Goof Troop, and the introduction of a new Darkwing Duck. For the upcoming third season, the fowl superhero will be joining Scrooge and company for a two-episode special titled "Let's Get Dangerous!", which will feature Gosalyn, the hero's original sidekick, his secret lair, and his special bike known as Ratcatcher. Youngberg confirmed that Darkwing's heavy involvement in the series has been in the works for a while now: 041b061a72
