Watch now: stream Turner and Hooch on Disney Plus from just $7.99/£7.99/AU$11.99 a month
Created by Matt Nix (Burn Notice, The Gifted), this legacy sequel focuses on US Marshall Scott Turner Jr (Josh Peck), the meticulously neat and uptight son of Tom Hanks’s now-deceased character.
Living alone and too pre-occupied with work to date, his world is upended when he inherits his father’s French mastiff, rescued from an animal shelter by Turner Snr because it was the embodiment of the original Hooch.
Despite the dog’s appetite for destruction – he totals Scott’s trendy apartment in seconds – he proves a boon for his owner’s love life, bringing him into contact with K-9 trainer Erica (Vanessa Lengies, Glee). He’s also an excellent law enforcement aide: sniffing out contraband, chasing down criminals, and, along with Scott’s sister Laura (Lyndsy Fonseca), helping to investigate the murky circumstances around their father’s death.
Excitingly for fans of the original, Reginald VelJohnson returns to play former DI turned mayor of Cypress Beach. Meanwhile, Carra Patterson stars alongside Peck as work colleague Jessica, Anthony Ruivivar is US Marshall Chief James Mendez, Brandon Jay McLaren plays ex-marine Xavier, and Modern Family’s Jeremy Maguire features as Scott’s excitable nephew.

How to watch Turner and Hooch online and stream the new show on Disney Plus now
This Disney Plus original premieres on Wednesday, July 21, exactly 32 years to the day the original movie debuted in theatres. It's exclusively available on the Disney Plus platform from 12am PT / 3am ET / 8am BST / 5pm AEST, with a new episode released at the same time each week up until October 6 2021.
As Disney Plus has now rolled out in North America, Europe and parts of Asia and Latin America, watching Turner and Hooch using the service is easier than ever. If you’re located in a country that does have access to Disney Plus, you just need to head to the Disney Plus website and sign up for the service to watch.
In addition to being the exclusive home of Turner and Hooch, Disney Plus also gives you access to Disney’s huge back catalog, plus Fox’s and Pixar's as well, as well as the entire MCU canon.
A Disney Plus subscription also gives you access to everything Star Wars - including The Mandalorian - all for just $7.99/£7.99/AU$11.99 a month.
How to save money on Disney+
Disney Plus is already cheaper than competing streaming services like Netflix but you can save even more when you sign up for an annual subscription which gives you 15% off the monthly price. Obviously you have to splash the cash at the start, but with so much content to get stuck in to we very much doubt you'll run out of things to watch before the 12 months are up. You're looking at $79.99/£79.90/AU$119.99 for the year.
Or if your interests are farther reaching (and you're in the US), then we'd seriously suggest looking at the fantastic value bundle package. It adds Hulu and ESPN+ to your subscription price. The Hulu element opens up a world of Hulu Originals such as The Great, Upload, Love Victor and Helstrom. While ESPN+ brings tonnes of exclusive live sport, highlights and documentaries. The combined bundle costs just $13.99 a month.
What else should I know about Disney+?
Turner and Hooch is just the latest in a string of recent blockbuster releases exclusive to the platform, including Loki, Monsters at Work, Soul, Mulan, Hamilton, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and much more.
In addition, now that Disney has set the precedent of releasing movies like its live-action Mulan remake on the service instead of in theaters through its Disney Plus Premier Access program, expect the company to keep bringing more blockbuster films that were originally intended to be shown on the big screen to Disney Plus in 2021. More recently, it's an excellent way to watch Black Widow online , the first film in Phase 4 of the MCU.
And finally, there's the new Star on Disney Plus that most global markets get to enjoy and sees the amount of content available through Disney Plus more than double, with a particular eye to shows grown-ups are going to enjoy.
It's available in the UK, most of Europe, and other select markets like Australia and New Zealand - but not in the US, where the media giant's Hulu service already has very similar ground covered.
