Based on a book series of the same title by Trenton Lee Stewart, the show was released on Disney+ on June 2021. Since its release, it has gathered a lot of fans that are asking for The Mysterious Benedict Society Season 2. Especially those who have grow fond on the show and similar shows like “Series of Unfortunate Events” by Lemony Snicket that’s available on Disney+’s competitor, Netflix.
‘The Mysterious Benedict Society’ is a mystery adventure series about four children who are brought together by Mr. Benedict to help avert a global crisis by infiltrating a mysterious facility called L.I.V.E Insititute to destroy the source of transmissions believed to be causing crisis around the world.
So a lot of people might be asking, will The Mysterious Benedict Society Season 2 get released? Well, you don’t have to infiltrate a school/research facility in order to find out the mysterious information! We are here to tell you everything you need to know about The Mysterious Benedict Society Season 2.
Will there be The Mysterious Benedict Society Season 2?
Yes! Disney+ confirmed through their Instagram that The Mysterious Benedict Society Season 2 is happening and you are not the only one who is feeling happy and grateful about it! Tony Hale, who plays both the titular character Mr Benedict and his evil twin brother Mr Curtain said “This show has been an absolute thrill to work on, and I’m so thankful to the fans and Disney (Diary of Future President) for the opportunity to keep telling this incredible story.”
So yes, we will see more of Mr Benedict and the uniquely talented children. But that’s as far of the announcement as we get right now. We have no release date but Disney+ has confirmed that the production for The Mysterious Benedict Society Season 2 will start in late 2022. We suspect that more info will arise during the Disney+ Day this year, and we will update this page accordingly once fresh information from the special presentation of Disney+ lineup confirms the release window.
Our best guess right now? Near the end of 2022 or early 2023 at the earliest, but these could change.
What’s the story for The Mysterious Benedict Society Season 2?
“The first book is this first season, basically. It really did lend itself to that kind of structure. And the subsequent books are all wonderful, and they’re very different, too. So if we were lucky enough to continue and get another season, I think it would likely draw from a lot of them in different ways, as opposed to being very, very specific.”, said the showrunner Phil Hay during an interview with The Wrap.
“But there’s a tremendous amount of great and fascinating stuff throughout the rest of the book series, and I think it’ll be interesting unearthing of stuff from all over the series if we get another season.”, Phil further elaborates.
So it seems that The Mysterious Benedict Society Season 2 will expand the stories from the books while following the same story beats with increased stakes as the children’s covers are slowly being revealed one by one which might jeopardize Mr Benedict’s operations.
In any case, we will see the consequences and impact of Sticky, Kate, Constance, and Reynie’s actions in the Season 1 finale. Although the first season somewhat follows the first book in the series beat by beat, The Mysterious Benedict Society Season 2 might take further liberties while keeping the early elements the same as the book.
Who will be in The Mysterious Benedict Society Season 2?
We’ll meet the core cast once again so expect Tony Hale portrays two central characters, Mr Nicholas Benedict and his twin brother Mr Nathaniel Curtain. Seth B. Carr, Emmy DeOliveira, Marta Kessler, and Mystic Inscho play the four children that Mr Benedict recruits, that is, George ‘Sticky’ Washington, Kate Wetherall, Constance Contraire, and Reynie Muldoon, all to return to the show.
Other cast members in the first season are Kristen Schaal (Number Two), MaameYaa Boafo (Rhonda), Ryan Hurst (Milligan), Saara Chaudry (Martina Crowe), Ricardo Ortiz (S.Q.), and Gia Sandhu (Ms Perumal) might return to the show for a second season too but what role they will play in the story is yet to be known.
