The Mighty Ducks TV Show Brings Back Coach Bombay, See Him On The Ice Here

Emilio Estevez is returning as Coach Bombay.

8 Comments

Emilio Estevez will return as coach Gordon Bombay in the new Mighty Ducks TV show for Disney+. Disney confirmed his casting and also announced that Estevez will be an executive producer on the show that is scheduled to debut later this year on the streaming platform.

Estevez said in a statement, "Once a Duck, always a Duck!" He returns to the franchise some 25 years after the original Mighty Ducks came out in 1992. Estevez also starred in the sequels D2 and D3.

"For a generation, The Mighty Ducks stood for teamwork, friendship, and heart and we're excited to see the Ducks fly together once again and bring the franchise to new audiences around the world. We are thrilled to have Emilio Estevez reprising his iconic role," Disney+ executive Agnes Chu said in a statement.

So far, Estevez is the only member of the original Mighty Ducks franchise to be confirmed for a role in the new TV show. The original movie series also starred Joshua Jackson as Charlie Conway, but it's unknown if he's coming back.

Estevez and his co-stars have already been hitting the ice to train for the Mighty Ducks TV show, as you can see in the image above.

The new Mighty Ducks TV show will also star Gilmore Girls actress Lauren Graham and Brady Noon (Good Boys), alongside other cast members, including Swayam Bhatia, Taegen Burns, Julee Cerda, Bella Higginbotham, Luke Islam, Kiefer O’Reilly, Maxwell Simkins, and De’Jon Watts.

The twist for the Mighty Ducks TV show is that the team, once known for being scrappy underdogs, are now an "ultra-competitive, powerhouse youth hockey team."

Noon's character, Evan, gets cut from the Ducks. With his mom Alex (Graham), they build a new team of "misfits" to take on the Ducks. "With the help of Gordon Bombay (Estevez), they discover the joys of playing just for the love of the game," reads a line from the description.

The Mighty Ducks TV show premieres later this year on Disney+. There will be 10 episodes in the first season.

I am definitely in if they can write it similar to the first couple of seasons of Friday Night Lights with an emphasis on the sport and games being played every second/ third episode.

...I guess it worked for YouTube Red with The Karate Kid, so may as well steal the concept for Disney+.

@Dimebag_Darrell: I don't know a single person that has ever even bothered to register for a YouTube Red free trial. 98% of their shows all get cancelled after one season despite some of them being really good, like Wayne and Origin.

I don't think YTR is the people you want to steal from their playbook, instead Disney is probably just recreating what they already did with Mandalorian. Name recognition franchise, some throwbacks for the older crowd with a twist and some new stuff for a younger generation.
