Disney has ordered 40 new episodes of the children’s hit show, Phineas and Ferb. Disney+ is gearing up to load new content onto its platform. However, the company’s streaming platform has been putting a major focus on revivals as well. Luckily, fans can now look forward to a Phineas & Ferb Revival along with the show’s original creators.
What is Phineas and Ferb?
Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh created Phineas and Ferb, an American animated musical comedy television series for Disney Channel. The show follows two stepbrothers, Phineas Flynn and Ferb Fletcher, as they embark on a series of creative and often outlandish summertime projects. The series also features a number of supporting characters, including the boys’ sister Candace, who is constantly trying to “bust” her brothers for their various schemes, and their pet platypus, Perry, who doubles as a secret agent. Phineas and Ferb premiered on Disney Channel in 2007 and ran for four seasons until 2015.
Phineas & Ferb Revival Series
Streaming services are bringing back new shows or films from our childhood every day, and the next one is Disney Channel’s Phineas and Ferb. Disney recently announced a 40-episode order for a sequel series that will be split across two seasons. Co-creator Dan Povenmire is leading the new series, and discussions are reportedly underway to bring on fellow co-creator Jeff “Swampy” Marsh. Additionally, voice actors Vince Martella (Phineas) and Dee Bradley Baker (Perry the Platypus) have confirmed their participation in the revival on social media.
Why Did The Phineas and Ferb Show End?
The creators of Phineas and Ferb, Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh, ended the series after four seasons because they felt the show had reached a natural conclusion and that they had told the stories they wanted to tell. They felt that it was important to end the show while it was still popular and before the audience’s interest began to wane. Additionally, Povenmire and Marsh had other projects they wanted to work on and did not want to overstay their welcome with Phineas and Ferb. The show ended in 2015 with a one-hour special episode called “Last Day of Summer” which served as the series finale.
What We Should Expect
Fans can expect the new Phineas and Ferb show to continue the same comedic and musical storytelling style as the original series. According to the creators, the new show will pick up where the original left off and will feature the same characters and humor that fans know and love. It is likely that the series will continue to follow the adventures of stepbrothers Phineas and Ferb as they embark on creative and often outlandish summertime projects.
What About Candace & Perry the Platypus?
Fans can also expect to see the characters Candace, Perry the Platypus, and the rest of the supporting cast in the new series. Fans can expect the continuation of the same fun and enjoyable stories, with the same characters and humor that made the original Phineas and Ferb series so popular, in the upcoming new series.
