There’s some big news from one of our favorite shows, and it’s two-fold! First-up, DOC McSTUFFINS will tackle the subject of adoption in an all-new 5-part story arc this month. Baby McStuffins will be an important arrival, and viewers will also meet Grandma McStuffins, and of course, some new toys. You can check out a preview and details on all four episodes below, but the bigger announcement is that DOC McSTUFFINS Season Four will premiere this summer, finding Doc and her toy friends “magically transported to a make-believe town, made up entirely of toys, where Doc serves as chief resident of the Toy Hospital.” Anthony Anderson (ABC’s “black-ish”), Molly Ringwald (“Sixteen Candles”), Ellen Pompeo (ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy”), Gabourey Sidibe (“Empire”), Vanessa Williams (“The Good Wife”) and Christopher “Ludacris” Bridges (“Furious 7”) will guest star.
