Disney Channel's "Good Luck Charlie" - Season Three

Updated with official press release: 




Cast to host week-long event of handpicked favorite episodes


The acclaimed sitcom "Good Luck Charlie" will present its series finale, "Good-Bye Charlie," on SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 16 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel.  Starring Bridgit Mendler, Jason Dolley, Leigh-Allyn Baker, Bradley Steven Perry, Mia Talerico, Logan Moreau and Eric Allan Kramer as the relatable Duncan family, the series premiered in April 2010 and since then has entertained millions of families around the world through 100 half-hour episodes and a hugely popular Disney Channel Original Movie. Encore episodes will continue to rotate on Disney Channels.


Among its milestones is the episode celebrating the birth of baby Toby (June 2012), which delivered 8.9 million Total Viewers in the United States. An accompanying viewer poll resulted in 25 million votes worldwide. The series inspired a Disney Channel Original Movie, "Good Luck Charlie: It's Christmas" (December 2011), which was cable TV’s #1 live-action movie of the year in Total Viewers (8.3 million Total Viewers) and the #2 scripted telecast across all TV in Kids 6-11 (4.0 million/16.1 rating).

The week leading up to the series finale, the cast of "Good Luck Charlie" will each host a night of their favorite episodes. Bridgit Mendler kicks off the week on Monday, February 10, followed by Jason Dolley on Tuesday, February 11; Bradley Steven Perry on Wednesday, February 13; Eric Allan Kramer on Thursday, February 13; Leigh-Allyn Baker on Friday, February 14; and the entire cast gathers to share their top picks on Saturday, February 15.


In the finale, Teddy is leaving for college and is finding it hard to shoot a final video diary for her little sister, Charlie. Meanwhile, Amy and Bob plan a special going away party for Teddy, and a surprise guest, Teddy's former boyfriend Spencer, pays an unexpected but welcomed visit.


"Good Luck Charlie" was created by Phil Baker and Drew Vaupen ("Suddenly Susan" and "What I Like About You") and was executive-produced by Baker, Vaupen and Dan Staley ("Cheers," "Love & Money").

    Im gunna miss this show!

  • Matt M.

    Sad. Disney Channel’s best series and by far its best family-centric series is coming to an end. I actually thought this show had the best chances of making it to a 5th season, and being the first Disney show to do so.

  • KJ Styles

    I’m gonna really miss Good Luck Charlie. Easily the best Disney Channel sitcom of all time IMO and better than any of the current broadcast network sitcoms not named Modern Family.

    What sucks even worse is it’s reruns will probably be immediately be relegated to late nights like Suite Life, Shake It Up, and WOWP have. I bet even GLC’s reruns do as good as the other current Disney Channel shows if not better.

    Jessie will be the only Disney Channel show I watch when GLC ends.

  • Born to shine

    Ok how come Shake it up didn’t get a hour long series finale?? I love shake it up, and they just treat shake it up like crap….SMH

  • KJ Styles

    @Born To Shine- Shake It Up wasn’t as popular or as high rated as GLC.

  • Frost

    So did that episode with the two moms ever air or did Disney chicken out?

  • Choco

    Seems like a stupid move to cancel their biggest show on air. Disney is crappy when it comes to renewals for old-ish hits, ever since the days of Lizzie McGuire and That’s So Raven.

  • Lyl

    Lol kj- reruns do the same as others. Typically

    Between this and GMW (which isn’t premiering yet) I don’t get why Disney doesn’t aim towards more family sitcoms.

  • Lyl

    Exclude me Choco, but raven was offered a spin off or to continue but turned it down. :)

  • Lyl

    The lesbain episode is one of final 3.

    And I suspect if Bridget was 14 when this begun, it’d last longer.

  • Mathew

    I think the lesbia* couple is on this Sundays episode

  • KJ Styles

    @Choco- Good Luck Charlie isn’t being cancelled, it’s just ending. There’s a difference. The ratings are good, it’s just that the cast members are moving on to other things. They announced at the beginning of the season that Season 4 would be the final one. It sucks either way, but just sayin.

  • Eve

    The best Disney sitcom in YEARS and now it’s ending… sad. Well, at least we enjoyed while it lasted.

    Good Luck, Charlie!

  • JP

    @KJ Styles or anyone – Hey, what do you make of Liv and Maddie? My 8-year-old goddaughter is obsessed with that show and constantly needles me to watch it with her every chance she gets. I’ve seen a few episodes and like it thus far. I think it has a good chance of succeeding Good Luck Charlie as Disney’s flagship family sitcom. What do you think?

    And don’t get me started on Dog With a Blog. The less said about it, the better.

  • Kaylie

    The reason Disney is so successful is because they know when to end a series. They end all their shows in good standings unlike Nickelodeon who runs all their shows into the ground. Like what they did with iCarly.

  • Movie12

    The last good Disney Channel show after that there’s no reason to see that network.

  • Frost

    I loved iCarly until the end and I’m still upset about Victorious. Seeing Jade, Robbie and Freddie on Sam & Cat made that show a million times better. In love with Jade.

  • Rollie

    It does suck that the show is ending. If Disney Channel decided to do something different, Good Luck Charlie could have lasted as long as Friends or The Office! Aside from this show, and of course the long-running Phineas & Ferb, everything on Disney is trash. I was excited to hear Shake It Up was ending, and can’t wait for Fish Hooks to go away!

    Disney needs to invest in some shows that appeal to a family audience like Good Luck Charlie did, not more of this tween crap they’ve been rolling out with. We don’t need more shows like Hannah Montana (Shake It Up).

    And one more thing: Dog With A Blog should’ve been cancelled, not sent to anchor Friday nights!

  • Born to shine

    @ kJ styles Ummm shake it up was disney second best series, their rating was good as well, no disney just like to play favoritism with good luck Charlie, no hate toward GlC though

  • Kissan

    I have a feeling Good Luck Charlie, Jessie and Liv & Maddie would do AMAZING on ABC. Just imagine GLC between The Middle and Modern Family and Jessie after Modern Family with Liv and Maddie on Tuesdays with The Goldbergs, ratings gold!
