Disney+ cancels the critically acclaimed Doogie Kamealoha, M.D. — a gender-swapped reboot of Doogie Howser, M.D. — after just two seasons.


  • Doogie Kamealoha, M.D. has been canceled after just two seasons at Disney+.
  • Despite being nominated for awards, Disney+ has not provided an explanation for the cancellation of Doogie Kamealoha, M.D. after its first season.
  • The show will end after a total of 20 episodes, leaving fans disappointed with its abrupt conclusion.

Doogie Kamealoha, M.D. has officially been canceled after just two seasons at Disney+. A medical drama with a heavy helping of comedy, the show revolved around the 16-year-old Dr. Lahela “Doogie” Kamealoha (Peyton Elizabeth Lee). The show is a reboot of Neil Patrick Harris’ Doogie Howser, M.D., which had a very similar premise featuring a teenage doctor struggling to balance his work responsibilities with his family life. Doogie Howser aired from 1989 to 1993, while its critically acclaimed reboot ran for two seasons from 2021 to 2023.

Months after Doogie Kamealoha, M.D. season 2, TVLine reports that Disney+ decided that the series will not be returning for season 3. Disney+ has not yet commented or offered any explanation for why the show has been canceled, despite having been nominated for multiple awards for its first season. Doogie Kamealoha, M.D. will be ending after just 20 episodes.
