Disney+ cancels the series, ending hopes of it becoming the longest-running show with "Doogie" in its title.
Despite its short run, the reboot managed to be one of the longer-standing series on Disney+, a platform known for quickly discontinuing shows.
Speculation arises whether the show might be entirely removed from the streaming service post-cancellation.
Peyton Elizabeth Lee portrayed Dr. Lahela Kameāloha, a teenage medical prodigy nicknamed Doogie, a nod to the original series.
The show starred a cast including Emma Meisel, Matt Sato, Wes Tian, Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman, Mapuana Makia, Kathleen Rose Perkins, and Jason Scott Lee.
Surprisingly, the series managed to complete 20 episodes without featuring a Neil Patrick Harris cameo, despite the creator's connections to "How I Met Your Mother."
The show received generally favorable reviews for its modern adaptation of the original premise and the talented cast's performances.
"Doogie Kamealoha, M.D." made efforts to update the concept for the 2020s, setting it apart from its predecessor.
The reboot aired for two seasons starting in 2021, totaling 20 episodes before its cancellation.
The cancellation of the series highlights Disney+'s trend of discontinuing shows after a relatively short period, contrasting with its commitment to certain successful franchises.
