The Mysterious Benedict Society was a quiet hit for the past few months among children and we wonder if there is more in store with a Season 2. After all, there is more than one book telling the stories of Mr. Benedict and his children’s adventures. The first adaptation was quite a brilliant one starring Tony Hale, Kristen Schaal, MaameYaa Boafo, Ryan Hurst, and the kids Mystic Inscho, Seth B. Carr, Emmy DeOliveira, and Marta Kessler helming the project. The cast perfected their characters and storytelling at the same time was kept to the notch.
The rivalry of siblings Mr. Benedict and Mr.Curtain was established in the first season. Both in present as well as through past sequences. Towards the end of season 1, Mr. Benedict and his children managed to get an upper hand leaving Mr. Curtain to retreat. Happy endings ruled the final moments with every kid finding a home for themselves. But is it the happy ending after all? Will Mr. Curtain retaliate? We would know if there is The Mysterious Benedict Society Season 2. So let’s find out.
Should We Expect The Mysterious Benedict Society Season 2?
Well, there are a few reasons that suggest yes, The Mysterious Benedict Society Season 2 may be on its way. Officially Disney+ hasn’t confirmed anything but it’s the subtle hints. First of all, The Mysterious Benedict Society was the adaptation of the first of the four books. So stories from the other three books are yet to be told. So yes, there is source material that creators can adapt and carry on the work for three more seasons.
The second hint comes from the finale of The Mysterious Benedict Society Season 1 itself. After everything that went down, Dr. Curtain found himself time to distance himself from everyone. That’s when Dr. Garrison comes up with a new plan and presents it to Dr. Curtain. From the looks of Dr. Curtain, he seems to like as he says let’s try this. So yes there is a new move for Curtain to play which can be part of season 2 of The Mysterious Benedict Society.
Lastly, it’s the ratings and viewership. For a family show like The Mysterious Benedict Society. The show has been a huge hit throughout its very first season run. It has managed to hook the kids as well as the adults with its beautiful storytelling. Even the fans of books are intrigued by the adaptation. So Disney might want to bank on the success and keep entertaining its fans. So these were some hints that suggest The Mysterious Benedict Society Season 2 may really come true.
The Mysterious Benedict Society Season 2 Release Date
If Disney does acknowledge the above-mentioned things, we can expect The Mysterious Benedict Society Season 2 to release somewhere in June next year probably. Around the same time, the first season came around. If not much, the best is late 2022. If there is much groundwork to be done or Disney wants to wait around for the renewal. Apart from that, we continue to expect the same number of episodes as in 8 for The Mysterious Benedict Society Season 2.
The Mysterious Benedict Society Season 2: What Could It Be About?
The way the first season adapted the first book, we expect The Mysterious Benedict Society Season 2 to adapt the second. Titled, “The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey”. The second book sees Mr. Benedict wanting the children to go on another journey and invites them to his house. But upon arrival, the children find Mr. Benedict lost and only a letter left which suggests kidnapping.
Opening the letter reveals that Mr. Curtain has kidnapped Mr. Benedict. All he wants in return is a certain rare plant and a person extremely close to Mr. Benedict. If not, Mr. Benedict as well as his assistant Number Two’s life will be in danger. So, Mr.Benedict’s adopted daughter Constance reveals to the group a letter he left for him. The one that leads them to MV Shortcut, the fastest ship in the world which is on its way to Lisbon. So will the children manage to get the plant and close on time? What does Mr.Curtain have in mind with all this? We may know with The Mysterious Benedict Society Season 2.
