It looks like the dog days are over for the cast and crew of Disney+’s Turner & Hooch. The streaming service has put an end to the reboot of 1989’s popular buddy cop franchise after only a single season, according to series star Reginald VelJohnson. The actor dropped the news during a recent chat with ComicBook.com, after being asked about the cloudy future of the show. He started by revealing there is still hope for Turner & Hooch, as Disney looks to shop the project to other networks. VelJohnson elaborated:
Well, as far as I know, they’re trying to sell it to another network or something like that. That’s what I heard. But as of now, it’s not going to be picked up, I don’t think. It was fun to do. And working with the actors was great fun and I hope so, whatever they decided to do I’m with it. It’s okay. I enjoyed doing the sequel and, hopefully, we’ll have some time to do it again. But if not, I was glad for the experience.Reginald VelJohnson
The actor, best known for his work on Die Hard and Family Matters, was the only person from the original Turner & Hooch film to return for the legacy series. He portrayed the partner of Tom Hanks‘ character, who did not make an appearance on the Disney+ show. Josh Peck replaced Hanks as the franchise lead, playing the son of the now-deceased hero. It centered around Peck’s character being paired with an unruly dog, much like his father before him. It’s joined the small number of shows to get canceled ahead of the potential second season and a shame given its popularity with fans.
