Turner & Hooch Film and Series Synopsis

Short of some twist, we're likely not going to see the 64-year-old Hanks return as Scott Sr since his son will be investigating his death in the series. He too will inherit a massive Dogue de Bordeaux as his partner like his father before him. In the 1989 Turner & Hooch film directed by Roger Spottiswoode, Scott Turner Sr is a neat freak detective about to move to Sacramento, California for a better job when he comes across a murder scene. The only witness is a dog named Hooch (Beasley), who's a bit rough around the edges, to put it bluntly, and can easily overpower someone if given the chance. When Scott initially offered a muffin to Hooch earlier in the film, the dog emerged from the shack launching himself at him and placed him into a chokehold with his mouth before his owner got Hooch to release the hold.

Returning for the series is Reginald VelJohnson as David Sutton, the original detective Scott Sr trained to replace him in the 1989 film. In the Disney+ series, he's now mayor of Cypress beach. The series also stars Lyndsy Fonseca, Carra Patterson, Vanessa Lengies, Anthony Ruivivar, Brandon Jay McLaren, and Jeremy Maguire.
