Disney+ has been one of the busiest branches of the Walt Disney Company. The streamer has been super-active with new releases since it was launched and recently added a piece into the library with the second season of The Mysterious Benedict Society (TMBS).
The series is an adaptation of Trenton Lee Stewart’s book series of the same title.
TMBS launched its first season in August 2021, attracting plenty of positive critics and reviews, characterized by a 7.6 out of 10-star rating on IMDb and an 85% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes.
The news about the renewal of the second season hit the screens, followed by the commencement of production, and finally, the second season is approaching sooner than thought.
