Disney XD will end Wander Over Yonder after two seasons, according to a post on Tumblr by the show’s creator, Craig McCracken.
McCracken had wished to create a third season of his intergalactic comedy-fantasy series. “About a year ago we presented a pitch for a season 3 arc that promised to bring our characters together in new, unexpected, and hilarious ways,” he wrote yesterday. “And just as S2 evolved from S1, we had a really exciting approach to evolving S3 even further. We had plans for new characters, the return of old characters, and even a bit of backstory!”
The decision, according to McCracken, was made by “the higher up bosses of bosses of bosses at Disney,” who didn’t offer any specific reasons for why they didn’t want a third season. McCracken pointed out that the decision to discontinue the show was unrelated to the season two ratings, because he had been told the show wouldn’t be renewed before the second season had even premiered.
