Thanks to a tip we now know that Disney is planning a 2nd season of the indisputably brilliant The Mysterious Benedict Society. Based on a book series written by Trenton Lee Stewart, the Disney+ Original rather faithfully followed the first book so fans have been curious if the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th adventures would similarly be adapted. Good news! Our favorite society of lovable orphans (the Baudelaires are our favorite family) look likely to return for more adventures on screen.
Disney is currently running a survey focused on the future of the series. Our source provided us this image where they ask, “Thinking about another season of The Mysterious Benedict Society, please tell us what you’d like to see more of or have future episodes focus on.”
Considering it is based on four books the logical answer would be… the things that happen in book two: The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey.
The correct answer is MORE CONSTANCE. Everybody loves that little Russian girl with all of her insults, nihilism, and one-of-a-kind brain. Just look at her reaction to her Benedict Society co-star Emmy DeOliveira’s gift to her on set. PRECIOUS.
Please keep in mind that just because they are considering another season does not mean the series has been renewed. However, this makes it much more likely. Our source had previously shared with us that Disney was running a survey on a potential Big Shot season 2.
Are you excited the Mysterious Benedict Society may be returning?
