Doc McStuffins Ready for Season 5

As per doctor’s prescription, Disney Junior is re-upping Doc McStuffins for a 5th season. Since its Peabody Award-winning animated hit premiered in March 2012, the series has obtained praise for its aspirational young hero who dreams to be a doctor like her mother. Nancy Kanter, General Manager and EVP of Disney Junior Worldwide has announced the season order.

The series has a lot of fans outside its target audience of children 2-7, including W. Kamau Bell, a socio-political comedian who lately called it – “One of the most important shows in the history of television.” A Veterans Day-themed episode also featured First Lady Michelle Obama who hosted a special White House screening for military families. Doc McStuffins has also welcomed Audra McDonald, Anthony Anderson, David Copperfield, Geena Davis, Patton Oswalt, Taye Diggs and Carson Daly as guest stars.

Doc McStuffins is executive produced and created by Emmy Award and Humanitas Prize winner Chris Nee and it has been honoured with a Peabody Award in 2015, acknowledging outstanding storytelling in electronic media and NAACP Image Awards in 2015 and 2016 for Outstanding Children’s Program. The show has been included in TOP 10 preschool cable TV series in key demographics, which averages 16 million views on VOD, Disney Junior app and Hulu, and reaches 150 million viewers all over the world each quarter.

Doc McStuffins broadcasts everyday on Disney Junior and Disney Channel. The show is a production of Brown Bag Films (Academy Award nominated) in collaboration with Disney Channel. Norton Virgien (Rugrats) serves as co-executive producer and supervising director. Michael G. Stern (Sofia the First) serves as story editor and co-executive producer.
