Disney+ continues to surprise us with all the amazing content its been turning out, and they certainly aren’t slowing down anytime soon. This week’s big news is that Disney+ is rebooting the popular ABC series Doogie Howser, M.D. with a brand new cast and a brand new doctor to idolize. We can’t wait to fall in love with Doogie Kameāloha, M.D.
While Doogie Kameāloha, M.D. is still in the early stages of development, we do have a few secrets we can share with you!
The Series Will Center On Lahela “Doogie” Kameāloha
Young girls dreaming about becoming a doctor are going to have a young idol to look up to real soon! While no one has been cast as Lahela yet, she’s been described as “a mixed-race 16-year-old girl” who is busy trying to balance a medical career with life as a normal teenager.
Also, Lahela’s family will make appearances, and we’re sure that’ll add drama and comedy. After all, Lahela’s mom is described as being a “spit-fire Irish mother who supervises her at the hospital,” while her father is described as being a “Hawaiian Local Boy,” who still sees Lahela as a little girl.
The Series Will Take Place In Hawaii
Yep! Get ready for stunning views because the series will be set in Hawaii. Although we’re not sure if that also means it’ll be filmed in Hawaii, but we certainly hope so!
The Series Is In Good Hands
While casting hasn’t happened yet, we do know that Kourtney Kang will write and serve as an executive producer on Doogie Kameāloha, M.D. Kang’s previous credits include Fresh Off the Boat and How I Met Your Mother, so we’re certain the series will also be comedic!
It’ll Be A While Before We Can Start Watching
As much as we loved to start binging Doogie Kameāloha, M.D. right now, we’re going to have to be patient with this one. The series is expected to drop on Disney+ sometime in 2021.
