NEWS: Doctor Who Is Coming to Disney+!

A popular sci-fi series is heading to Disney+!


Disney+ is already home to hit series like The MandalorianLoki, and more. But soon, fans of a certain popular character from the U.K. will have MORE to watch!

Disney+ has shared that Doctor Who — the popular series from the United Kingdom — will be coming in 2023 to Disney+!

For those unfamiliar with the show, Doctor Who is an incredibly popular show in the UK that has been around for decades. It follows the Doctor on all kinds of unique adventures as the Doctor travels through time and space. It’s a wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey bunch of fun, with humor mixed in with touching moments, a lot of heart, and all kinds of exciting (and sometimes terrifying!) adventures.

According to a Tweet from the Doctor Who account, the show will be returning in 2023 (with its new logo!). It’ll be available to watch on the BBC in the UK, and on Disney+ for the rest of the world.

According to a release from the Doctor Who website, Disney+ will be the “exclusive” home for NEW seasons of Doctor Who outside of the UK and Ireland. New episodes will start to air on Disney+ in late 2023.

The announcement was also shared by the upcoming Doctor, Ncuti Gatwa.


2023 will also see the return of showrunner Russel T Davies. He was responsible for reviving the classic show in 2005.

Davies shared, “this is the best of both worlds – with the vision and joy of the BBC and Disney+ together we can launch the TARDIS all around the planet, reaching a new generation of fans while keeping our traditional home firmly on the BBC in the UK.”

Charlotte Moore, BBC’s Chief Content Officer, said that Disney “are the perfect partners to bring this very British show to the rest of the world…Joining forces with Disney will elevate the show to even greater heights and reach new audiences.”

On the Disney side, Ayo Davis, President of Disney Branded Television, shared, “Doctor Who has captivated the imaginations of families around the world for the past six decades. We are so excited about this collaboration with the BBC, and the opportunity to bring this iconic franchise – and Russell T Davies’ brilliant vision – to life for a huge new global audience.”

In November of 2023, you can expect to see new episodes of Doctor Who, which line up with the show’s 60th anniversary. These episodes will premiere exclusively on the BBC for the UK and Ireland.

David Tennant will be reprising his role as the Doctor (specifically he’ll become the 14th Doctor) for 3 specials, after which Gatwa will take over.

We’ll continue to keep an eye out for more updates!
