Phineas and Ferb will air its final new episode Friday, June 12 at 9pm EST. “Last Day of Summer” will be an hour long and will be shown on Disney XD and Disney Channel.
To kick off the farewell episode, Disney XD will present a 73-hour marathon, showing all of the previous 126 episodes, five one-hour specials and a Disney Channel Original Movie. The marathon begins Tuesday, June 9 at 8pm EST.
The description of the finale is:
The summer season is coming to a close and it’s Candace’s last chance to bust her brothers. She is quickly foiled, but is presented with an opportunity to redo the day when she sets off Dr. Doofenshmirtz’s Do-Over-Inator, which results in other consequences like rips in the space-time continuum, the shortening of days and the disappearance of her brothers.
This won’t be the last of Disney’s partnership with the writing team from the show.
Agent P will actually return to Disney XD later this fall, as the star of The O.W.C.A. Files, an hour-long special.
The creators of Phineas and Ferb, Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh, are currently working on a new cartoon for Disney XD, titled Mikey Murphy’s Law. Set for a 2017 release, this new show will follow a fictional character named Mikey Murphy, the great-great-great-great grandson of the man behind “Murphy’s Law.”
Marc Buhaj, Senior Vice President of Programming and General Manager at Disney XD, said, “Dan and Swampy are two of the most respected and proven show creators in the animation series business. They are incredibly gifted storytellers who have a track record of creating smart, original and relatable characters that are universally appealing to both kids and families. It’s a coup for Disney XD to continue working with this talented duo on their latest creation Mikey Murphy’s Law. We’re looking forward to another great creative partnership.”
Phineas and Ferb reruns will still run daily on Disney XD.
