“Phineas and Ferb” co-creator Dan Povenmire has signed an overall deal with Disney Branded Television, and part of that deal will be to revive that series for two more seasons and a total of 40 episodes.
In addition, a second season of “Hamster & Gretel,” which debuted on Disney Channel in August 2022 has also been ordered with other projects also to be developed under the pact.
Disney Branded Television president Ayo Davis says in a statement: “Dan is renowned for his ability to create universally beloved stories and characters with both heart and humor. We couldn’t be happier to continue our collaboration with him and bring back the iconic Phineas and Ferb in a big way.”
Povenmire and Jeff ‘Swampy’ Marsh created the series, which officially premiered on Disney Channel in 2008 and became the highest-rated series among kids 6-14 in Disney Television Animation History.
The show ran for four seasons and spawned two movies, the most recent being 2020’s “Candace Against the Universe”. The series streams now on Disney+ and remains popular.
Povenmire, who also voices Dr. Heinz Doofenschmirtz on the series, says: “It has been the greatest pleasure of my career to see how an entire generation of kids and parents have embraced the characters and the humor of Phineas and Ferb. I’m eagerly looking forward to diving back into the show for them and for a whole new generation.”
