Lahela is going to have more time on her hands. Disney+ has cancelled the Doogie Kamealoha, MD series, so there won’t be a third season.
A coming-of-age medical drama series, the Doogie Kamealoha, MD TV show stars Peyton Elizabeth Lee, Kathleen Rose Perkins, Jason Scott Lee, Matthew Sato, Wes Tian, Emma Meisel, Mapuana Makia, Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman, and Milo Manheim. The story revolves around Lahela Kameāloha (Peyton Elizabeth Lee), a child prodigy who was nicknamed “Doogie” because of the 1990s Doogie Howser, MD series. She juggles her life as a teen with her early medical career.
Created and executive produced by Kourtney Kang, the series was ordered to series in the Fall 2020 amidst the pandemic and debuted a year later with ten episodes. It was renewed for a second season in February 2022, and those ten episodes were released in March of this year.
TVLine first reported the news but didn’t state a reason. The cancellation doesn’t come as a surprise, given that the streamer has been cutting any shows unrelated to the Marvel or Star Wars franchises. Disney+ has cancelled several shows in the past year, including Big Shot, Diary of a Future President, Just Beyond, The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers, The Mysterious Benedict Society, National Treasure, Turner & Hooch, Willow, and The World According to Jeff Goldblum.
Several of the Disney+ cancelled series were later removed from the service. It’s unknown if Doogie will also soon be disappearing into the vault.
