“It might be the end of The Mysterious Benedict Society series as we know it. The show is set to come out this June 25th and will most likely finish up with The Ring of Anubis.”
We’re all eagerly waiting for The Mysterious Benedict Society series: Show Trailer, Official Release Date, Plot, and Cast Updates! The date has been confirmed by PBS Kids – it’ll be coming out on December 14th. And if you still need convincing, here’s a video that was just released from the big event earlier today at New York Comic-Con.
The Mysterious Benedict Society series Official Release Date
The show is set to come out this June 25th, 2021, with an initial 2 episodes. And if you still need convincing, here’s a video that was just released from the big event earlier today at New York Comic-Con.
You might be thinking: “Another TV adaptation? Great!” We’re not so sure about it because of what happened with Percy Jackson & The Olympians – Lightning Thief (2010) or even Harry Potter! But we can’t worry too much yet; there’s not enough information out there about The Mysterious Benedict Society.
Plot Details for the TV Series
Four gifted children are selected for an extraordinary mission. They must work together as a team. To save their parents from the evil Mr. Curtain. Who seeks world domination via his devices called “corrupt objects.” The children, The Mysterious Benedict Society (Sticky Washington, Reynie Muldoon, Kate Wetherall, and Constance Contraire), are sent on a mission to foil Mr. Curtain’s plans. The kids must navigate; their way through; various levels of The Learning Institute. For the Very Enlightened (life), each home to a different obstacle that they will need to solve to find the next level.
The TV adaptation is set in modern times instead of Victorian England- which means we get more opportunities for diverse representation! We’re also excited by this because it gives the showrunners an opportunity to create original plots rather than adapting those from books. The creator has said he wants there to be new mysteries every episode so no two episodes would ever have the same story. The show will also be more than just an adaptation of The Mysterious Benedict Society- it’s set to explore new aspects and delve into some pretty heavy themes from the books.

Will we have any guest appearances for the show?
The Mysterious Benedict Society’s author, Trenton Lee Stewart, has said, “No one is set in stone yet. The cast and crew are still working on the show.” The only confirmed guest star on The Mysterious Benedict Society TV series so far is Emmy DeOliveria as Kate!
About the book series
We love the Mysterious Benedict Society books by Trenton Lee Stewart. For their clever plot twists and diverse group of children. Who form a secret society to save themselves from an evil man, called The Man With Red Eyes. They are also hugely popular around the world (the first book has been translated into over 20 languages!)
So what is The Mysterious Benedict Society about?
The books are set in a top-secret location called The Learning Institute for the Very Enlightened. There, four children – Reynie Muldoon, Kate Wetherall, Sticky Washington, and Constance Contraire. Come together to form The Mysterious Benedict Society as they try to save their world from an evil man. With red eyes, who wants them gone at all costs. The TV show will follow this storyline closely (the book started not knowing it was fiction). But there will be changes made due to the time constraints of television. Such as flashing back; more often than we do in the books. Which provides some background story and characterization. The show will also be filmed in Canada, which has been a blast for the cast who can go home at night!
In July of 2011, The Mysterious Benedict Society series became one of three pilot shows; (along with The Big Bang Theory) produced by DreamWorks Animation Television as part of their “Dreamworks Junior” initiative. After developing an idea of what they want The Mysterious Benedict Society TV show to look like – Shrek meets Mission Impossible- Hollywood writer Adam Higgs was hired on staff to write the scripts.
