For more than three years, Disney fans have been able to hop onto Disney’s very own streaming platform and watch hundreds of classic shows and movies from not only Disney, but also Marvel, Pixar, and LucasFilm. When it launched in 2019, Disney+ had mostly classic films that fans loved to watch. Since then, Disney has added a number of original shows, including The Imagineering Story, WandaVision, The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers, Diary of a Future President, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, and more.

In 2021, Disney premiered another new show, based on a series of popular children’s books — The Mysterious Benedict Society. The show starred Tony Hale as Mr. Benedict, an eccentric man who brings gifted orphans together to stop a global catastrophe. The children infiltrate the Learning Institute for Veritas and Enlightenment (L.I.V.E), a school run by Mr. Benedict’s twin brother, Dr. Curtain. It is at this school that Dr. Curtain is manipulating the children and putting thoughts into their heads.

The show was such a hit that it was quickly renewed for a second season. However, it appears that the second season may not have been as well-received as the first, and we have learned that Disney is canceling the show. News of the cancellation was shared in a series of tweets by Phil Hay, one of the writers and creators of The Mysterious Benedict Society.

Dear friends- season 2 will mark the end of THE MYSTERIOUS BENEDICT SOCIETY’s journey on Disney+. We love everyone who helped make this truly special and indeed life-affirming experience happen. No regrets- so proud of what we made! (1/3 )

So grateful to every one of you who who made a place for our show in your home & heart. From author @TrentonLeeStew1 to geniusii @MrTonyHale & @kristenschaaledto our partners @toddzer1 & @DSwim & writers to the kids, their families, 20th, D+, our whole cast & crew ..(2/3)

You made it wonderful and we loved every minute. The beauty of streaming is that the show lives on Disney+ and you can find it whenever you want to visit. Spoiler alert for how the story ends: the kids stay friends forever. ❤️❤️❤️❤️

At this time, we aren’t sure why Disney decided to cancel the series, but seasons one and two are available to stream on Disney+. If you love Tony Hale, you can also see him in Hocus Pocus 2, where he plays Mayor Traske. Hocus Pocus 2 is also available to stream on Disney+.
