No regrets – so proud of what we made!"  Hay wrote, adding, "You made it wonderful, and we loved every minute.

The Mysterious Benedict Society is based on the best-selling book series by Trenton Lee Stewart and follows the series of four gifted orphans "recruited by the peculiar Mr. Benedict for a dangerous mission to save the world from a global crisis known as The Emergency. Together, they must infiltrate the mysterious L.I.V.E. Institute to discover the truth behind the crisis. When the headmaster, the sophisticated Dr. Curtain, appears to be behind this worldwide panic, the kids of the Mysterious Benedict Society must devise a plan to defeat him." The series stars Mystic Inscho, Seth Carr, Emmy DeOliveira, Marta Kessler, Kristen Schaal, Ryan Hurst, MaameYaa Boafo, and Gia Sandhu.

The Mysterious Benedict Society first debuted on Disney+ in June 2021. It's second season debuted in October 2022 and concluded in December.

"The Mysterious Benedict Society is a beautifully executed adaptation of the celebrated and beloved book series. It's original, clever, and fun for the whole family, which makes it the perfect fit for Disney+," Dana Walden, chairman of Entertainment, Walt Disney Television, shared in a statement when the series was announced. "One of the great benefits to creators working with our company is that we have a platform that's right for every series and having seen the first few episodes of this show, there is no better home for it than Disney+."
