The original “Turner & Hooch,” which premiered in 1989, had a police officer named Scott Turner (Tom Hanks) and a colourful French mastiff who worked together to solve the murder of Hooch’s owner. The buddy-cop film was a box-office hit, generating a series pilot which became a straight-to-TV sequel — and, more than 30 years later, a 12-episode Disney+ Television show featuring Josh Peck as Scott Turner Jr. He’s a U.S. Marshal, and his father has given him a French mastiff named Hooch to help him combat crime. “Turner & Hooch,” like “Mighty Ducks: Game Changers,” is part of the network’s push toward nostalgic IPs that longstanding fans can watch with their new families.
Turner and Hooch solve crimes throughout the first season, while Scott learns more about his father’s death and the case he was working on when he reportedly had a heart attack, a subplot that continues throughout the episodes.
What’s the release date for Turner & Hooch Season 2?
“Turner & Hooch” has yet to get an official renewal from Disney+. As a streaming network, and a relatively new one nonetheless, Disney has a less-than-transparent process to determine the ratings of its shows, and in some cases, fans don’t know until after the fact whether a show is intended to be a limited series with only one set of episodes, as “WandaVision” turned out to be, or if it may continue for multiple seasons.
A renewal decision with “Turner & Hooch” may go either way. The program has gotten unfavorable reviews from outlets such as The Hollywood Reporter and CNN, resulting in a fairly mixed score of 57 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Fans, on the other hand, appear to be liking it a lot more, with an audience score of 88 percent. If Disney+ gets renewed, the business may wait until Disney+ Day, which has been set aside as a day of celebration, content releases, and sneak peeks. Disney+ Day is set to take place on November 12th. If you’re dying to know what happened to “Turner & Hooch,” that’s the date to mark on your calendar.
Who will be casting for Turner & Hooch Season 2?
The five gorgeous French mastiffs who play Hooch will return if “Turner & Hooch” is resurrected. Their names are Arnie, Hammer, Obi, Cyd, and Mya, and they each play a different role depending on their skills and talents. Cyd, for example, specializes in fine detail work, whereas Hammer excels at stunts. Carra Patterson portrays Scott’s pregnant partner Jessica Baxter, Lyndsy Fonseca portrays Scott’s sister Laura, and Vanessa Lengies portrays dog trainer (and romantic interest) Erica Mounier. Brandon Jay McLaren and Anthony Ruivivar portray U.S. Marshals who work for Scott and his team, respectively, while Jeremy Maguire plays Scott’s nephew Matthew.
Matt Nix (“Burn Notice”) conceived the show, with Josh Levy (“Bones”) serving as co-executive producer. “Turner & Hooch” is a television series created by 20th Century Fox. However, without a formal renewal, it is unknown which of these actors and crew members will return.
What’s the plotline for Turner & Hooch Season 2?
The “Turner & Hooch” episodes were loosely connected by a plot arc centered on Scott Srdeath’s although they all stood alone as largely complete storylines. Throughout the season, Scott and Hooch encounter drug traffickers, jewel thieves, counterfeit money, Scott’s ex-girlfriend, and an illegal dogfighting ring, all while learning the ropes as a K9 team and dealing with the politics and other difficulties that come with it.
The episode’s conclusion did, in fact, give some closure and a joyful ending. We’re talking about a kid, a wedding, love sparks, new career opportunities, and puppy shenanigans… you get the idea. As a result, a new season would likely continue the cases that the two friends begin, maybe with a new overall mystery to unravel. Unlike some previous series that have finished on tight cliffhangers before being terminated, “Turner & Hooch” now provides a (largely) full experience. Hopefully, this isn’t the conclusion of the story.
