Disney + is withdrawing from the market for dogs that help police solve crimes. Premiering on Disney + over the summer, the Turner & Hooch series followed on from the original 1989 film of the same name, sharing a similar story with a new lead role in Josh Peck. It has now been reported that Disney + has chosen to end the series without Season 2 on everything, thus ending the news. Turner & Hooch after one season and 12 episodes.
Turner & Hooch was developed for Disney + by Matt Nix. It follows Josh Peck as U.S. Marshal Scott Turner Jr. as he inherits an unruly dog named Hooch, following their ensuing partnership. It didn’t help the show’s chances of killing the original Scott Turner, played by Tom Hanks in the original film, as he wasn’t involved in the new series. Peck previously addressed the decision to kill Hanks’ character, explaining that everyone knew Hanks was unlikely to get involved, so they wanted to cancel the possibility right away.
“When you’ve got someone like Tom Hanks, and everything I’ve done since I started playing is basically an attempt to try and steal it, but you’re like, ‘Well that would be a flash in a bottle if he decided to come play and be in an episode. ‘ And so I think in an effort to release this idea that it might never happen, we’ll just allow it not to walk the earth, ”Peck previously told ComicBook.com.
Reginald VelJohnson, who reprized his role from the original film for the TV series, also recently warned fans that bad news was imminent. He told ComicBook.com, “Well as far as I know they are trying to sell it to some other network or something like that. That’s what I heard. But from now on it’s not going to be picked up, I don’t think so. It was fun to do. And working with the actors was a lot of fun and I hope whatever they decide to do I agree. Its good. I like doing the sequel and I hope we’ll have time to do it again. But otherwise, I was happy with the experience. ”
Roger Spottiswoode directed the original Turner & Hooch film starring Tom Hanks, Mare Winningham, Craig T. Nelson and Reginald VelJohnson. Disney had previously attempted to develop a spin-off series with Tom Wilson reprising the role of Hanks, but although the series did not receive a series order, its pilot was converted into a TV movie, serving as a sequel.
Starring Josh Peck and Reginald VelJohnson, the series also starred Carra Patterson, Lyndsy Fonseca, Vanessa Lengies, Brandon Jay McLaren, Jeremy Maguire and Anthony Ruivivar. The possibility is always there that Turner & Hooch may find a new home on another streaming service, but that doesn’t seem like the most likely scenario. It might be best for fans to appreciate the short-lived show for what it was, essentially serving as a legacy sequel from the original. Turner & Hooch. It’s up to you to decide if it’s better than the sequel to the original film. The news of the show’s cancellation comes from Collider.
