Phineas and Ferb ran for four seasons on Disney Channel, which included a made-for-tv movie, Phineas and Ferb: Across The Second Dimension. A few years after Phineas and Ferb aired their series finale in 2015, Disney+ premiered Candace Against The Universe in 2020. But even that is not the end of the story.
Disney has officially revealed its plan to revive the stand-out animated series for two seasons with forty total episodes.
Phineas and Ferb already portrayed a variety of endings. The original series devoted an entire episode to older portrayals of the characters in “Act Your Age,” giving a glimpse into the characters as they are about to go off to college. The series finale, “Last Day of Summer,” portrayed Phineas, Ferb, Candace, and their friends rushing to save the world after Candace and Doofenshmirtz accidentally set the course for a Groundhog Day scenario.
Afterward, Phineas, Ferb, Candace, Isabella, Perry, Doofenshmirtz, Major Monogram, Baljeet, and Buford appeared in Milo Murphy’s Law, another series also created by Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh.
Candace Against The Universe took a slightly different approach to the story, arriving back during summer vacation. Still, this time, Candace chose a drastically different option than her usual routine.
Rather than bust her brothers even though the fallout of their actions is apparent, Candace decides to cover for them instead. So, will Candace’s development to decide against busting her brothers continue into the revival?
Or will the new episodes continue Candace’s original trend of rushing to bust her brothers’ endeavors and inventions? What types of innovations will Phineas and Ferb create next?
The original Disney Channel animated series was one of the longest-running shows with some of the most innovative humor, characters, and storylines. Given how successful the original series became, it is not surprising that Disney wants to capitalize on that triumph for a new generation.
However, Phineas and Ferb is a fantastic show for all ages, so the series’ events can amuse even older viewers.
