There won’t be a third season for that The Mysterious Benedict Society, the adventure series starring Tony Hale. The news, which comes more than a moth after Season 2 ended its run on the streamer, was revealed by co-creator/executive producer Phil Hay on Twitter.

“Dear Friends – Season 2 will mark the end of The Mysterious Benedict Society’his journey on Disney+. We love everyone who helped make this truly special and truly life-affirming experience happen. No regrets – so proud of what we’ve made!, Hay wrote. “The beauty of streaming is that the show lives on Disney+ and you can find it when you want to visit. Spoiler alert for how the story ends: the kids remain friends forever.”

Based on the bestselling YA book series by Trenton Lee Stewart, The Mysterious Benedict Society was originally greenlit by Hulu and was one of the last series developed and sold by the late producer Jamie Tarses. It moved to Disney+ before the series premiere.

Hard to say goodbye to The Mysterious Benedict Society, but so INCREDIBLY grateful to Disney TV Studios and Disney+ for allowing us two seasons of this beautiful story written by Trenton Stewart,” Hale wrote on Instagram alongside a cast photo.
