Available on Disney+
The Mysterious Benedict Society is an adaptation of the book series by Trenton Lee Stewart. The society is made up of four foundlings who enter a school scholarship competition but end up getting recruited for a top-secret world-saving mission instead. They're led by Reynie Muldoon (Mystic Inscho), who's brilliant and kind and a quiet leader. His companions are plucky and resourceful circus performer Kate Wetherall (Emmy DeOliveira), nerdy quiz show champion Sticky Washington (Seth Carr), and the overly grumpy and direct Constance Contraire (Marta Kessler). They've been brought together by brilliant Mr. Benedict (Tony Hale, Veep). Benedict is trying to find the cause of The Emergency: a global mental health crisis in which everyone has crippling anxiety that comes from what they see on the news. He needs the kids because he thinks The Emergency is caused by radio and TV broadcasts coming from the secretive L.I.V.E. Institute school. The kids go undercover as students at the school in order to get to the bottom of the society-destroying mystery. Along the way, they'll communicate with Mr. Benedict's quirky helpers Number Two (Kristen Schaal), Rhonda (MaameYaa Boafo), and Milligan (Ryan Hurst) via flashlight morse code. Can they navigate being "the new kids" at a strange school while trying to save the world at the same time?
Starring Tony Hale, Kristen Schaal, MaameYaa Boafo
