The finale of Disney’s beloved Phineas and Ferb is on the horizon as production for the animated series has officially wrapped. But fans have something to celebrate ahead of that June 12 farewell as creators Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh are getting a new show called Mikey Murphy’s Law, the company announced Thursday.
The story will follow the fictional great-great-great-great-grandson of the Murphy’s Law namesake. Povenmire and Marsh are set to executive produce, and will be joined by Phineas and Ferb colleagues Robert F. Hughes, story editor Scott Peterson and staff writers Joshua Pruett, Dani Vetere and Martin Olson. It’s slated to premiere on Disney XD in 2017.
“Dan and Swampy are two of the most respected and proven show creators in the animation series business,” Marc Buhaj, senior vice president of programming at Disney XD, said in a release. “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.”
Preparing for that final day of vacation, there will be a 73-hour marathon of Phineas and Ferb beginning Tuesday, June 9 at 8 p.m. ET, with the finale episode, “Last Day of Summer,” airing Friday, June 12 at 9 p.m. ET on both Disney XD and Disney Channel.
