Doogie Howser, M.D is all set to appear again on Disney+. The show aired in 1989 starring 16-year-old Neil Patrick Harris and launched his career. The show was fairly popular and ran for 4 seasons.

So, What’s New?

The reboot Doogie Kealoha, M.D stars a 16-year-old girl who is half-Asian and half-Caucasian in Hawaii. Yes, you heard that right. We are getting a multi-racial female lead for this one. We are tired of white leads anyway.

The show focuses on Hawaii as the writer and producer, Kourtney Kang, who is also from Hawaii. She also worked with the famous sitcom How I Met Your Mother and Fresh Off the Boat.

What is the future for the reboot?

This show was famous in the late 80s and the early 90s. This, one can’t help but wonder, if the show has a suitable audience for now? Is it going to reach the people that used to watch it before or is it intended for the newer generation? We cannot get the answers now or maybe never as Disney+ does not release its viewing audience. But all we can hope for is take a trip down the memory lane and revisit a show our parents used to watch.
