When the first “Turner & Hooch” movie came out in 1989, it featured a police investigator named Scott Turner (Tom Hanks) and a lovely French mastiff named Hooch. The two worked together to uncover the murder of Hooch’s owner, who was killed in the film’s opening credits. The buddy-cop film was a box-office hit, inspiring a series pilot that was turned into a straight-to-TV sequel — and, more than three decades later, a 12-episode Disney+ TV series starring Josh Peck (via Deadline) as Scott Turner Jr. In addition to being a U.S. Marshal, he is also the owner of a French mastiff named Hooch, who he uses to battle crime. In the same way that “Mighty Ducks: Game Changers” is part of the network’s transition toward nostalgia-infused original programming that longtime fans can enjoy with their new families, “Turner & Hooch” is part of that shift.
A theme that runs across the episodes is the discovery of new information concerning Scott’s father’s death and the case that Scott was working on at the time of his death, which is a motif that runs the episodes.
When the Season 1 finale of the PG-rated action show (which had lots of gun violence) aired on October 6, it raised the question of whether or not the series would be renewed. The crime-fighting combo “Turner & Hooch” may be coming to an end. Until further notice, the following is what we know.

Turner and Hooch Season 2 Cast
If “Turner & Hooch” is brought back to life, the five lovely French mastiffs who play Hooch will be brought back as well. They go by the names of Arnie, Hammer, Obi, Cyd, and Mya, and they each take on a job that is tailored to their own abilities. According to Deadline, Cyd is particularly good at precision work, whilst Hammer is particularly good at stunts.
Scott is played by Josh Peck, Jessica Baxter is played by Carra Patterson, Scott’s sister Laura is played by Lyndsy Fonseca, and Erica Mouniere is played by Vanessa Lengies, who also happens to be Scott’s dog trainer and romantic interest. Brandon Jay McLaren and Anthony Ruivivar portray U.S. Marshals who work for Scott and his squad, and Jeremy Maguire portrays Scott’s nephew Matthew, who is played by Matthew’s younger brother.
Developed by Matt Nix (Burn Notice), with Josh Levy (Bones) serving as co-executive producer, the show will premiere in the fall of 2018. “Turner & Hooch” is a television show that is produced by 20th Century Fox Television. However, in the absence of a formal renewal, it is unknown which members of the cast and crew will return.
Turner and Hooch Season 2 Plot
A plot arc focused on Scott Srdeath brought the “Turner and Hooch” episodes together, yet each episode could stand alone as a complete drama in its own right. As they progress through the season, Scott and Hooch come up against a variety of criminals including drug traffickers, jewel thieves, forgers of counterfeit money, Scott’s ex-girlfriend, and an illegal dogfighting ring. They also have to deal with the politics and other difficulties that come with being a K9 team.
The finale of the show did, in fact, provide some closure as well as a happy ending. In this case, it’s about a child, a wedding, romantic sparks, new job chances, and puppy shenanigans, to name a few things. Therefore, a new season would very certainly continue the cases that they and their companions have started, potentially with a new overall mystery to solve. For the first time, unlike some other series that have left viewers on a cliffhanger before being canceled, “Turner & Hooch” now offers a (mostly) complete experience. Perhaps this is not the end of this particular narrative.
Turner and Hooch Season 2 Release Date
The formal renewal of “Turner & Hooch” has not been announced by Disney+ as of yet. Because Disney is a streaming network, and a relatively new one at that, its process for determining ratings for its shows is less than transparent, and in some cases, fans aren’t informed 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 whether it will run for multiple seasons.
When it comes to “Turner & Hooch,” a decision on whether to renew can go either way. A number of outlets, including The Hollywood Reporter and CNN, have given the show unfavourable reviews, leading to a slightly mixed rating on Rotten Tomatoes, which gave it a Tomatometer score of 57 percent. Fans, on the other hand, appear to be enjoying it a great deal more, as seen by its audience rating of 88 percent.
Even if Disney+ gets renewed, the firm may elect to wait until Disney+ Day, which the company has designated as a day of celebration with content releases, sneak peaks, and other special events. It is planned that Disney+ Day will take place on Friday, November 12. If you’re on tenterhooks waiting to find out what happened to “Turner & Hooch,” that’s the date you should mark on your calendar for next week.
