‘The Incredible Dr. Pol’ recently introduced a new feature

Last year, the father and son team of Dr. Jan Pol and son Charles introduced their new YouTube show, Recheck. The after-show show picks up where each new episode of The Incredible Dr. Pol ends, airing right after.

Recheck serves as the reality program’s deep dive behind-the-scenes bonus featuring in-depth interviews with special guests and, of course, with Dr. Pol himself.

Charles announced the news about the feature in June 2020, saying “It’s going to be a fun after-show, we’ll have special guests from the episodes, we’ll talk to some of your favorite veterinarians, and we’ll even have the ability to have fans come on the show, visit the veterinarians, and visit with Dr. Pol.”

Dr. Pol’s son addressed the show’s 19th season – and Dr. Brenda’s status with the show

In a Facebook Live announcement, Charles pulled the curtain back on what’s to come for the show’s nineteenth season.

But first, he answered fans’ pressing questions about the show. In his 20-minute video update, Charles let the show’s fans know that the current 18th season will be streaming on Disney+ on June 11.

He answered another viewer’s question regarding his toddler, Abigail, and whether she is speaking in Dutch like her grandparents (“we’re working on letting her be exposed to Dutch, but we’re really trying to work on her getting her English,” he said laughing).

As well, Charles let Dr. Pol’s followers know about some of the interesting products he’s got in their online store including baseball caps, t-shirts, and “the scented candles are still up there. We’re going to be transitioning to more summer, fall scents.”

As for the upcoming 19th season, Charles made triply sure to emphasize the status of one of Dr. Pol’s most popular and senior vets: “Dr. Brenda is not leaving the show. The new season of The Incredible Dr. Pol premieres July 10th at 9:00PM on Nat Geo Wild. We really appreciate it, and again, Dr. Brenda’s not leaving. Dr. Brenda’s not leaving, N-O-T, take it to the bank.”
