It's not a spin off, which bites cuz THIS Darkwing (and Negaduck) is amazing! They'll have to redo his origin again, urgh.

There were two parts in the finales that almost made me swear out loud. And it wasn't even the part that indirectly revealed who killed Duckworth.

Have we got official confirmation it's not a spin off? I figured it might not be, but haven't heard anything confirming it beyond a different creative team.

On one hand, I'm happy the show was great and went out on a high note. On the other hand, I'm really confused as to why it's ending here. I mean if it was JUST the Ducktale stuff, I could see them maybe deciding they used up enough material to call it quits, but with access to the entire Disney afternoon, I'm certain this could have gone on for another few seasons easy.

De-spoilering this since it isn't a spoiler.

 

The show is ending because three seasons is all that they were allowed to make. The show's creators have talked about how lucky they were to get as far as three seasons, knowing that it could have been canceled at anytime, making the most of each episode as much as they could along the way. They didn't "call it quits", they were forced to wrap it all up from on high.

Okay I'll re-phrase. I mean more of why is DISNEY calling it quits? Or rather, why the hell was the team only allowed three seasons?

 

This show is great, and as far as I'm aware was doing very well. But then the higher ups are basically: "Okay that's enough" and I honestly don't get what they are thinking.

It's something of a curse that a lot of Disney shows have fallen victim to over the years. Kim Possible was ended after three seasons, but got a fourth after fan pushback. Zack & Cody ended with three seasons, but got to continue in a sequel show, The Suite Life on Deck. Girl Meets World had more story to tell, but Disney wouldn't let it continue after its third season. Television bureaucracy at its worst, I'm afraid. :rolleyes

If I had to guess, it's because they don't want any one team or interpretation of the characters to get TOO popular.  

 

These are evergreen characters.  Part of their strength is that they can do multiple different versions of them, and they can all be fairly legitimate.  But, if one version becomes TOO popular, then suddenly fans complain when they get written some other way.  They complain that they act "out of character", even if their characterization in another show is supposed to be different.  They get stuck making these characters act in a certain way.  They probably like having more flexibility than that.  They most likely don't want these version of the characters to be seen as the "definitive" version of the characters.

 

There's also that they probably just don't want the creatives to get too much bargaining power.  If the show goes on for years and years, then suddenly you might get voice actors that want raises or animators that want more money.  It's hard to replace them, and becomes a very public spectacle when you do.  Disney most likely doesn't want a bunch of projects that are like the Simpsons, where the voice actors are paid millions because they're iconic, and it'd be a nightmare to replace them, just from a public relations standpoint.  It's probably  in their best interest to make a show that's reasonably popular, sell some toys, then get out before it becomes a big cultural touchstone.  People will probably remember this show for years, and that's good enough.  They probably don't want it to go on for decades.

 

And then there's streaming.  I don't know how everyone's contracts were written concerning streaming, but, given how big it's become just in the past year, chances are DIsney might just want to do some new things concerning streaming, contract wise.  And, it's easier to write new contracts for a new show than try and change contracts for a currently running show.  *shrug* Might have suffered from just being around during the cusp of the broadcast-streaming changeover.

 

And like Sabrblade said, it seems to be a fairly common thing for the Disney Channel in general.  Maybe for reasons listed above, maybe to just make room for new shows and to finish things off before the show gets stale and less popular/profitable for the channel.  Maybe for all the above.  Maybe none.  It could be the creators of the show just wanted to do new projects, too.  No one likes being typecast.

Maaaaybe the new Darkwing will have stealth guest stars? I'm sure a new Gizmo Duck will be there but maybe three young spies from SHUSH help DW out in spy type cases?

I'd love to see Blot vs Morgana. And Pepper! I want more Pepper!

And I swear, if new Steelbeak is around, there better the hex be a new Black Heron! Call her Crane Noir but bring her back!

It's been a running thing ever since Bradford was revealed as the prime villain that he is exactly what he hates.  He is a source of Adventure, of Chaos.  All his efforts to eliminate these things just strengthen them.  If he hadn't brought all the villains together in FOWL, they would have been defeated piecemeal and eventually faded away.  But he kept them strong.  For all his protestations, he's as much an agent of adventure as Scrooge is.

They used the music and the 'lives again' line.

So everything from the s3 poster when they were falling out of the plane checks out? Only... Mighty Ducks didn't get a cameo? (Unless Launchpad wearing a hockey mask in the Halloween ep counts?)

I'm a bit miffed that Huey didn't have a bigger character defining moment here (in his vs scene). They bothered to bring up the Duke of Making a Mess but didn't do anything with him after Huey accepted that side of him too.

But then the finales don't really center on the triplets anyway. S1 was Magica and Lena, not Dewey. S2 was Moonvasion and Della, not Louie (though he conned all the other bad guys in the previous eps). So it follows that pattern that S3 was FOWL and Webby, not Huey. Soooo I guess that's ok.

Y'know, in selecting the teams, Scrooge should really find a way to weaponize Gladstone. He could solve all their problems just by stepping in the room.
