Amphibia is an American animated series, created by Matt Braly. The series premiered on June 14, 2019 on DisneyNOW and YouTube; June 17, 2019 on Disney Channel; and August 5, 2019 on Disney XD. The first season became available on the Disney+ streaming service when it launched on November 12, 2019.

On May 15, 2019, ahead of the series premiere, Disney Channel renewed the series for a second season, which premiered on July 11, 2020.[2]

On June 23, 2020, the series was renewed for a third season, ahead of the second season premiere.[3] On Reddit, Matt stated that Amphibia would have three acts, which means that the third season will be the final season of the show.[4]

The series ended on May 14, 2022, with a three-part conclusion. The series left Disney Channel on June 19, 2022 with a final rerun of "Hop 'Til You Drop"/"Turning Point."[5]

Premise

Main article: Timeline

Amphibia chronicles the adventures of 13-year-old Anne Boonchuy, who is magically transported to the fantastical world of Amphibia, a rural marshland full of frog-people. There she meets an excitable young frog named Sprig Plantar, his unpredictable sister Polly and overprotective grandpa Hop Pop. With Sprig's help, Anne will transform into a hero and discover the first true friendship of her life.

Production information

On February 23, 2018, Disney Channel greenlit the series, alongside The Owl House.[6] According to Matt Braly on a tweet, the development for Amphibia had taken "almost two years" before it was picked up in February 2018.[7] On March 27, 2019, it was announced that Brenda Song would star in the series as the voice of Anne Boonchuy.[8] In April 2019, Justin Felbinger was announced as the voice of Sprig Plantar. On May 15, 2019, the series was renewed for a second season ahead of its premiere, along with the announcement of Bill Farmer and Amanda Leighton being casting as the voices of Hop Pop Plantar and Polly Plantar respectively.[2]

The series was renewed for a third season on June 23, 2020, ahead of the second season premiere.[3] The season was later confirmed by many crew members as the last for the series. On May 3, 2022, Matt Braly announced on Twitter that the production of the third season and the series overall had ended, with the final episode being delivered to the network.[9]
