Five months after the release of the second season of “Doogie Kamealoha, M.D.” on Disney+, TVLine has revealed that the show has now been cancelled and will not be returning for a third season.

“Doogie Kamealoha, M.D.” is a coming-of-age dramedy that is a gender-swapped reboot of Neil Patrick Harris’ hit medical series “Doogie Howser, M.D.” from the 1980s.

The show follows Lahela “Doogie” Kamealoha, a 16-year-old prodigy juggling a budding medical career and life as a teenager. With the support of her caring and comical ‘ohana (family) and friends, Lahela is determined to make the most of her teenage years and forge her own path. Guiding Lahela (and also complicating things) is her career-driven mother Dr. Clara Hannon who’s also her supervisor at the hospital, her doting father Benny who helps keep her connected to what matters most, her free-spirited older brother Kai, her gregarious younger brother Brian Patrick, her best friend Steph, her surfer crush Walter and her fellow hospital colleagues, Dr. Lee, Charles and Noelani.

The show was set in modern-day Hawai’i and shot on location in O’ahu. Peyton Elizabeth Lee (“Andi Mack”) starred as the title lead alongside a diverse and talented ensemble cast, including Kathleen Rose Perkins (“Big Shot”) as Dr. Clara Hannon, Jason Scott Lee (“Mulan”) as Benny Kamealoha, Matthew Sato (“Hawaii Five-O”) as Kai Kamealoha, Wes Tian as Brian Patrick Kamealoha, Emma Meisel (“American Horror Story”) as Steph, Mapuana Makia (“Finding ‘Ohana”) as Noelani and Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman (“UnREAL”) as Charles. The series also starred Alex Aiono (“Finding ‘Ohana”) as Walter and Ronny Chieng (“Crazy Rich Asians”) as Dr. Lee. In the season season, Milo Manheim (“Z-O-M-B-I-E-S” trilogy) also joined the series, playing a new love interest, Nico.

Melvin Mar, Jake Kasdan, Dayna Bochco, Jesse Bochco, Erin O’Malley, Matt Kuhn and Justin McEwen served as executive producers alongside Kang. “Doogie Kamealoha, M.D.” was produced by 20th Television.

The cancellation doesn’t come as a huge surprise, since the first season was released on Disney+ in September 2021, with weekly releases, while, the second season dropped earlier this year in a binge drop, which has quickly become an indication that Disney had less faith in the show, since this has happened with the last seasons of other shows that were cancelled including “Diary Of A Future President”, “Big Shot”, and most recently with “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series”.

Both seasons of “Doogie Kamealoha, M.D.” are available to stream now on Disney+, and I’d suggest, if you haven’t watched the show, or haven’t finished watching the show yet, do it as quickly as possible, since Disney could potentially remove the series from Disney+ off as a tax write-off, like it has done with dozens of other shows recently.
