“The Mysterious Benedict Society ss 2”: release date, announcement
The season 2 of the teen adventure TV series “The Mysterious Benedict Society” has been officially announced. The high ratings of the season 1 indicated that there would definitely be a sequel. It is currently known that the new episodes will premiere on October 26, 2022.
In the center of the plot are four children who did not immediately get to know each other. Reynie was raised in an orphanage from infancy. He was afraid of local boys and never got into other people’s conflicts. The very thought of being subjected to moral or physical violence shocked him. He was mentored by psychologist Mrs. Perumal, who invited Reynie to take tests at a prestigious school.
After reading all the books in the local library and armed with courage, Reynie goes to take the exams. Of the dozens of students sitting in one class, only he is chosen. Later, from another class, he is joined by a boy whom everyone calls Sticky. Having an ingenious memory, he is able to apply knowledge in practice. He is kind, brave, and childishly naive.
Kate becomes another student of the school. She does not remember her mother, and her father left when she was 3 years old. She carries a bucket with her, which is equipped with the necessary utensils: twine, lock picks, scotch tape, a long rope, and so on. The girl is ready to help at any time. On the test, she waits for Reynie and Sticky, who did not manage to complete the task in time, wanting to help them.
After successfully completing the tasks, the children saw the mysterious Mr. Benedict, who introduced them to another student. A girl named Constance overcame all obstacles by deceit and cunning, while she did not regret a single bit of her actions. The scientist himself did not see an egoist in her, considering the girl to be extremely vulnerable and kind.
Children learn that in reality there is no gymnasium – all tests were passed by them for other purposes. The four new friends are explained the task: it is necessary to complete missions to help the world. More and more often, deplorable news appears in the news, disheartening people, and then interfering with sane thinking.
Only children, whose hearts still retain a sense of absolute justice, can help adults live a normal life. But what plans does Mr. Benedict have? Why can’t he himself influence what is happening? Does he want to gather allies? What can small children do for him?
