‘The Mysterious Benedict Society’ Moves From Hulu To Disney+ Ahead Of 2021 Premiere



The series, which is based on Trenton Lee Stewart’s best-selling YA books, originally was developed for Hulu but will now premiere on Disney’s streaming service in 2021.

It marks the first example of a show moving in that direction, though titles such as High Fidelity and Love, Victor have previously moved in the other direction.

The decision appears to be related to the tone of the content. Dana Walden, chairman of Entertainment at Walt Disney Television, said Mysterious Benedict Society is “fun for the whole family” and calling it a “perfect fit” for Disney+.

The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey by Trenton Lee Stewart is the focus of the 2nd Season that recently starting filming.

The synopsis of the second book reads:

"The Mysterious Benedict Society is up against a new mission, significantly closer to home. After reuniting for a celebratory scavenger hunt, Reynie, Kate, Sticky, and Constance are forced to go on an unexpected search–a search to find Mr. Benedict. It seems that while he was preparing the kids' adventure, he stepped right into a trap orchestrated by his evil twin Mr. Curtain.

With only one week to find a captured Mr. Benedict, the gifted foursome faces their greatest challenge of all–a challenge that will reinforce the reasons they were brought together in the first place and will require them to fight for the very namesake that united them."

Here are a picture of the kids, Mystic Inscho, Seth B. Carr, Emmy DeOliveira, and Marta Kessler. (Note that Emmy DeOliveira is standing on her tip-toes and is barely taller than Marta Kessler.)
