Turner & Hooch Season 2 - Will It Ever Happen?

Back in 1989, the original "Turner & Hooch" featured a police detective named Scott Turner (Tom Hanks) and a charismatic French mastiff named Hooch, with the unlikely duo teaming up to solve the murder of Hooch's owner. The buddy-cop film became a box office hit, and it even inspired a series pilot that was turned into a straight-to-TV sequel in 1990. And more than 30 years later, the House of Mouse decided to return to the beloved property with a 12-episode Disney+ TV series.

Headlined by Josh Peck, the series follows Scott Turner Jr., a U.S. marshal who also has a crime-fighting French mastiff named Hooch, given to him by his father. During the course of the series, Turner and Hooch solve crimes as Scott learns about his father's death and the case he was working on when he supposedly had a heart attack. The PG-style action show (there's plenty of gun violence) dropped its Season 1 finale on October 6, 2021, which begs the question ... will the series keep going? Or is this it for the dynamic duo of "Turner & Hooch?"

It's bad news for Turner & Hooch fans

If you were looking forward to further adventures with Scott Turner Jr. and his adorable canine pal, well, we've got some disappointing news. In December 2021, it was announced that Disney+ had decided to cancel "Turner & Hooch" after its first season. 

Unfortunately, it doesn't look like the series will find life on another network. Speaking with ComicBook.com after the series' cancellation, actor Reginald Veljohnson — who played in both the Disney+ series and the original movie — explained, "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. ... Hopefully, we'll have some time to do it again. But if not, I was glad for the experience."

Worse still, "Turner & Hooch" fans can't rewatch Season 1 to fill the mastiff-shaped hole in their hearts. In May 2023, it was announced that Disney+ was culling a ton of content in order to cut costs. Unlucky series that vanished from the site included "Willow," "The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers," "The Mysterious Benedict Society," "The World According to Jeff Goldblum," and — we're sorry to say — "Turner & Hooch."

In other words, the first season is completely unavailable. However, if you want to check out the original movie starring Tom Hanks, that is available to stream on Disney+. Plus, you can rent it on streaming services like Prime Video, Apple TV, Google Play, Vudu, and YouTube.
