From a media release:
Corus Entertainment’s Nelvana, a world-leading international producer and distributor of children’s animated and live-action content, together with Lambur Productions, have greenlit a second season of its hit mystery series The Hardy Boys (10x60min). Produced by Lambur Productions and Nelvana, in association with Corus Entertainment, the live-action series based on the beloved books by Franklin W. Dixon will start production in Toronto and Southern Ontario later this month. Following its success on Hulu in the U.S., The Hardy Boys’ inaugural season garnered critical acclaim and established a devoted fan base, claiming the spot of #1 program this Spring on YTV* in Canada. Season 2 will premiere on Hulu in the U.S. and YTV in Canada in 2022.
Picking up six months after the events of Season 1, the second season of The Hardy Boys finds Frank and Joe intertwined in yet another complicated mystery when a local Bridgeport teen goes missing and a duplicitous corporation moves into town.
Starring an all-Canadian ensemble cast, Season 2 welcomes back Rohan Campbell (Mech-X4, Virgin River) as Frank Hardy and Alexander Elliot (Detention Adventure, Workin’ Moms) as Joe Hardy. Additional returning cast members include: Keana Lyn as Callie Shaw, Bea Santos as Aunt Trudy, Adam Swain as Chet Morton, Atticus Mitchell as J.B. Cox, Riley O’Donnell as Biff Hooper, Cristian Perri as Phil Cohen, and Janet Porter as Laura Hardy.
The second season of The Hardy Boys is executive produced by Lambur Production’s Joan Lambur and Madeleine Lambur, and Corus and Nelvana’s Doug Murphy, Pam Westman and Athena Georgaklis, in addition to showrunner and head writer Chris Pozzebon (Blindspot, Schitt’s Creek), and showrunner and head director Jason Stone (Riverdale, The Hardy Boys). Amanda Vaughan and Kathleen Meek will serve as production executives for Corus.
Season 1 of The Hardy Boys is currently available to stream on Hulu in the U.S. and STACKTV in Canada through Amazon Prime Video Channels.
