The buddy-cop family comedy has been axed, meaning it can now roam free in doggy heaven.
The Disney+ reboot/continuation of 'Turner & Hooch' has been cancelled after just one season.
A legacy sequel of the original Tom Hanks comedy film, this Disney+ series starred 'Drake & Josh' actor Josh Peck in the title role. Not just a straight-up sequel series, it served as a continuation of the 1989 film, with Peck playing Scott Turner Jr., the son of the original Turner played so famously by Hanks.
Unlike the original, the Disney+ series proved to be quite formulaic and predictable, essentially being deemed one for the family to enjoy. In our review, we said all of the episodes blend into one: "More mature audiences will quickly tire of the show’s repetitive nature as it’s basically the same episode over and over."
The series debuted on the streaming service in July and was made up of 12 episodes in total. In the end, it seems that this fresh take on the beloved franchise didn't make enough of an impression on viewers to warrant a return of the police officer and his unruly dog partner.
Days before the cancellation news, Brandon Jay McLaren, who played Xavier Wilson in the series, retweeted a fan who said they were waiting for season two of 'Turner & Hooch' to be announced.
McLaren rather bluntly responded with: "Don't hold your breath. You'll die."
'Turner & Hooch' isn't the first big-name casualty from Disney+ this year. The sci-fi series 'Y: The Last Man', which originally aired via FX on Hulu in the US, was also canned after just one season. Although the comic series on which it is based on has a strong following, many fans were let down with the final delivery which failed to set it apart from all of the other dystopian future TV shows out there.
