Disney is preparing to expose a new generation to the world’s most famous (and cleverest) Time Lord by bringing Doctor Who to Disney XD.
Deadline is reporting that Disney XD has picked up the rights to seasons 2-4 of Doctor Who, which will begin airing May 9.
“This iconic series features the high-quality, high-stakes action and adventure storytelling that our viewers love,” said Disney XD GM Marc Buhaj in a statement. “The show headlines one of the most charismatic lead characters in television in the form of the Doctor and showcases a compelling rogues’ gallery of villains from around the universe.”
When the series premieres on May 9, kids will be able to watch the first episode in which Tennant was featured. After that, the series will return June 13 with eight more episodes heading to the network 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,” stated BBC Worldwide North America EVP Matt Forde.
