Disney has announced that Season 3 of their Emmy Award-nominated frog-out-of-water animated comedy Amphibia will premiere Saturday, Oct. 2, at (9:30 a.m. EDT) on Disney Channel and DisneyNOW, with a special extended-length episode. Created and executive produced by Matt Braly (Gravity Falls), Season 3 finds Anne and the Plantars transported from Amphibia to her hometown of Los Angeles, where the Frog Family must learn to navigate the complexities of this modern-day world, conceal their identities as talking frog people and search for a way home. Season 3 will also include a 22-minute Christmas special featuring a song written by Rebecca Sugar (Steven Universe).
A Season 3 sneak peek Amphibia clip was revealed during a combined virtual Comic-Con@Home panel with The Owl House. Disney Television Animation also shared an exclusive clip from the premiere episode of The Ghost and Molly McGee, an upcoming animated buddy-comedy series about tween optimist Molly and her unlikely friendship with grumpy ghost Scratch, which premieres this October.
