Disney+ announced today that The Mysterious Benedict Society has been picked up for a second season. The good news comes the month after the drama wrapped its eight-episode freshman run, which was generally well-received by critics.

Based on the young adult book series by Trenton Lee Stewart, the series follows four orphans who each possess a unique skill. Because of their collective ability to see the truth, they are summoned to a boarding school by its eccentric benefactor who believes they can help stop a sinister plot that could have global consequences.

Look for Season 2 of The Mysterious Benedict Society in 2022.
