The TARDIS has taken “Doctor Who” through time and space and landed on Disney XD. The network will air seasons two through four — the ones starring David Tennant as the Doctor — of the eccentric BBC science-fiction this summer.
The second season will preview May 9 with episode one, titled “New Earth,” following the premiere of “Fantastic Four.” The season will continue to roll out starting June 13, with one episode airing daily through June 20.
“Disney XD is recognized for its family-friendly programming, making the channel a great partner to introduce the David Tennant seasons of ‘Doctor Who’ to a new generation of viewers,” said Matt Forde, exec VP of sales and co-productions in TV at BBC Worldwide North America, in a statement.
Marc Buhaj, senior VP at Disney XD, said, “This iconic series features the high-quality, high-stakes action and adventure storytelling that our viewers love.”
Disney XD airs a mix of live-action and animated programming targeting boys ages 6-11.
“Doctor Who” originally aired for 26 seasons between 1963 and 1989, and was relaunched in 2005. The seasons picked up by Disney XD first aired from 2006 until 2008.
