Don Johnson joins Joshua Jackson for Ryan Murphy’s ‘Dr. Odyssey’

Don Johnson is the latest addition to the cast of Ryan Murphy’s upcoming ABC drama series “Dr. Odyssey.” Per Deadline, Johnson will star opposite Joshua Jackson in Dr. Odyssey, set to debut this fall.

Variety reported that plot and character details for the show are being kept under wraps, but sources say the series is believed to be a medical procedural, possibly set on a cruise ship. It is slated to premiere during the 2024-2025 broadcast season, and will be the first new broadcast show from Murphy’s eponymous production company since ‘911: Lone Star’ premiered on Fox in early 2020. Disney’s 20th Television is producing with Ryan Murphy Television.

Dr. Odyssey marks Jackson’s first network series since Fox’s Fringe ended in 2013. The ‘Dawson’s Creek’ alum also recently starred in Paramount+’s Fatal Attraction and in the first season of Peacock’s anthology Dr. Death, and will be part of Sony Pictures’ next ‘Karate Kid’ film.

Johnson rose to fame in his role as Sonny Crockett on the classic 1980s NBC series Miami Vice, and as the title character in the CBS series Nash Bridges (1996). His recent credits include the Emmy-winning HBO limited series Watchmen, Rian Johnson’s ‘Knives Out’ and the Book Club feature franchise.
