Disney+ takes Nelvana’s live-action Hardy Boys across the globe

Live-action mystery series The Hardy Boys

Disney+ has picked up the international rights (excluding the US and Canada) to live-action mystery series The Hardy Boys.

The Disney-owned streamer acquired both seasons of the show, which is developed and produced in Canada by producer-distributor Nelvana and prodco Lambur Productions for Canadian broadcaster Corus Entertainment.

The series will launch on Disney+ in select international markets in 2022, according to a release.

Season one (13×60’) debuted in December on streamer Hulu in the US and Corus-owned children’s network YTV in Canada.

Season two (10×60’) recently wrapped production in Toronto and southern Ontario, with new episodes set to debut in 2022 on Hulu, YTV, Disney+ and Corus’s digital subscription platform StackTV.

Based on a coming-of-age book series of the same name by Franklin W Dixon, the show follows the serialised adventures of teenage sleuths and brothers Frank and Joe Hardy as they find themselves in a new town shrouded in mystery.

The second season stars Rohan Campbell (Mech-X4, Virgin River), Alexander Elliot (Detention Adventure, Workin’ Moms), Keana Lyn, Bea Santos, Adam Swain, Atticus Mitchell, Riley O’Donnell, Cristian Perri and Janet Porter.

Executive producers are Joan Lambur and Madeleine Lambur for Lambur Production and Doug Murphy, Pam Westman and Athena Georgaklis for Corus and Corus-owned Nelvana. Showrunner and head writer Chris Pozzebon (Blindspot, Schitt’s Creek) and showrunner and head director Jason Stone (Riverdale, The Hardy Boys) are also executive producers.

Nelvana holds the international distribution rights to the series.
