House star Hugh Laurie to play a doctor again

New series Chance coming to Hulu later this year


He was everyone’s favourite ornery doctor (well, except that one) but Doctor Gregory House left our screens back in 2012.


Well, now Hugh Laurie will be strapping on a stethoscope once more.

American streaming service Hulu has picked up two series of Chance, based on a novel by Kem Nunn. Over the 20 episodes, Laurie will play ‘forensic neuropsychiatrist’ Eldon Chance who is forced to navigate the seedy underworld of San Francisco, following in the wake of a patient possibly suffering multiple personality disorder.


Chance is slated to premiere online later this year. It may not be the House reunion fans want, but it’s sure to be a tense watch.
