There is exciting news for the fans of The Mysterious Benedict Society. Disney+ has announced that the show will return for a season 2. Production for the second season of the show will begin in 2022.
The news was announced by the streamer by sharing a video featuring Tony Hale who plays Mr. Benedict. Hale can be seen asking the fans to figure out a mathematical riddle, to which the answer is two.
The show follows the peculiar Mr. Benedict, as he takes in four orphans with gifts to carry out the dangerous mission of saving the world from his evil twin, Dr. Curtain.
The second season is expected to pick up a year after the orphans’ first mission to stop the “Emergency”. They will reunite in this instalment to put a stop to whatever new plan Dr. Curtain is brewing.
Apart from Hale, The Mysterious Benedict Society stars Kristen Schaal, MaameYaa Boafo, Ryan Hurst, Gia Sandhu, Seth B Carr, Emmy DeOliveira, Mystic Inscho and Marta Kessler.
Produced by 20th Television with Halcyon Studios, the show is based on Trenton Lee Stewart's young adult novel of the same name.
It is created by Matt Manfredi and Phil Hay with Darren Swimmer and Todd Slavin serving as showrunners.
Hay, Manfredi, Slavkin and Swimmer, in a statement quoted by Deadline, said that they were “thrilled to have the opportunity to continue our journey” into the world created by Stewart.
The first season of the series premiered on Disney+ in the US and Disney+ Hotstar in India on June 25 last year.
The Mysterious Benedict Society received fairly positive reviews and reactions from the audience. The eight-episode series is available to stream on Disney+ Hotstar.
