“Milo Murphy’s Law” follows Milo, a teenager who embraces his chronic bad luck stemming from Murphy’s Law. According to the show, Murphy’s Law is named after one of Milo’s ancestors and dictates “anything that can go wrong will go wrong.”
The premier’s announcement by The Hollywood Reporter posted on July 21st confirmed a crossover with “Phineas and Ferb” as the season’s first episode that would air in 2018 (which would be pushed back to 2019). Both shows share the same creators, Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh, allowing the crossover to happen.
“Phineas and Ferb” (2007- 2015) depicts the lives of step-brothers Phineas and Ferb, who take building and creativity during their summer vacation to the next level, while older sister Candace struggles to expose her brothers’ creations.
Antsy US fans of “Milo Murphy’s Law” were eager to discover when season two would be released, since season one ended in December 2017. In August, Yankovic surprised Milo Murphy’s fans with a single tweet. Season two was premiering the following day in Japan, but Yankovic was unsure of the show’s US premiere date.
US fans became hopeful when Disney XD tweeted that season two’s first half will air in the UK this month.
However, Povenmire confirmed fans’ concern when he tweeted a response to Disney Television Animation News, a fan account on Twitter. The US premiere date was still unclear.
Shortly after this interaction, on August 9th Disney XD announced on Twitter that the crossover and season two premiere will occur in January 2019 in addition to posting a sneak peek.
Premieres of animated shows on Disney Channel before they air on Disney XD seems to be the new normal. Disney announced in February that “Star vs. The Forces of Evil” season four is set to premiere on Disney Channel instead of Disney XD, which is where the show first premiered. However, airing animated shows such as “Milo Murphy’s Law” on Disney Channel first will likely boost viewership and reach more viewers as Disney Channel is included in more cable packages compared to Disney XD.
For those of you who are interested in catching up with “Milo Murphy’s Law” or if you just want to re-watch favorite episodes, you’re in luck! Disney Channel is currently airing the series every Sunday at 7AM leading up to the premiere of season two.
