As per Variety, Povenmire, who also lent his voice to Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz, expressed his excitement to revive the show and introduce Phineas and Ferb to long-time fans and a whole new generation.
“It has been the greatest pleasure of my career to see how an entire generation of kids and parents have embraced the characters and the humor of Phineas and Ferb. I’m eagerly looking forward to diving back into the show for them and a whole new generation,” Povenmire said during the tour.
The Phineas and Ferb creator also took to Twitter to share the exciting news. Dressing up as Dr. Doofenshmirtz and holding a Perry the Platypus stuffed toy, Povenmire exclaimed: “We’re doing more Phineas and Ferb. We’re back, baby! You can’t keep a good platypus done, is what I’m saying.”

Vincent Martella and Dee Bradley Baker, who voiced Phineas Flynn and Perry the Platypus, respectively, seemingly confirmed their involvement in the project as they also took to Twitter to react to the news. Fans are, of course, elated to know that the two of the original cast members will reprise their roles.

Can't wait to see you build a rocket, fight a mummy, climb the Eiffel Tower, discover something that doesn't exist, give a monkey a shower, surf tidal waves, create nanobots, locate Frankenstein's brain, fight a dodo bird, paint a continent and drive your sister insane.

At the moment, Phineas and Ferb co-creator Jeff “Swampy” Marsh is still in talks to join the project, while details on whether all of the original cast members of the show will return are yet to be announced.
Phineas and Ferb is created by Povenmire and Marsh, and originally premiered in 2007 and ran until 2015. The show followed the adventures of the titular step brothers during their summer vacation, where they made extravagant and genius inventions every day only for them to vanish every time their parents returned home, which annoyed their older sister Candace. The show’s subplot also followed Phineas and Ferb’s pet Perry the Platypus who worked as a secret spy to defeat Dr. Doofenshmirtz and his evil plans.
Phineas and Ferb starred Martella, Thomas Sangster, Ashley Tisdale, Alyson Stoner, Maulik Pancholy, Bobby Gaylor, and Mitchel Musso.
