After having been developed for Hulu, the Mysterious Benedict Society is being moved to Disney+, and the family friendly platform welcomes this adaptation of Trenton Lee Stewarts YA book series of the same name with open arms.
The first season of Mysterious Benedict Society will be comprised of eight episodes and air on Disney+ in 2021. The show will detail the adventures of a group of orphans (played by Mystic Insho, Emmy DeOliveira, Seth Carr, and Marta Timofeeva) in an undercover boarding school called The Institute. The four friends find themselves entangled in a strange and “nefarious plot with global ramifications while creating a new sort of family along the way.”
“We are so thrilled that Disney+ will be the home for our show. What a great place to be,” said creators and writers of the show, Matt Manifredi and Phil Hay. “It’s a beautiful thing to feel as supported and inspired as we have, every step of the way, by our entire team at 20th, Hulu and the Disney family; and we are honored and gratified by the belief in the show this represents. From the moment Jamie and Karen brought us these fantastic books, through our collaboration with Todd, Darren, Tony and our amazing cast and crew, we’ve felt very lucky. Certainly feeling that way today.”
