Corus Entertainment recently revealed that the second season of "The Hardy Boys"is set to air on Monday, 4 April at 8 p.m. ET/PT on YTV. “Corus is delighted to continue the compelling character-driven story of 'The Hardy Boys' and debut the second season on our powerhouse family network YTV,” said Troy Reeb, EVP Broadcast Networks, Corus Entertainment. “With an incredibly talented cast and crew, The Hardy Boys strengthens Corus’ suite of first-class original, high-quality Canadian content and underscores our commitment to fostering industry talent here in Canada.”
New episodes of "The Hardy Boys" will rollout every Monday at 8 p.m. and will be available to stream live and on demand on StackTV, which is now available on Amazon Prime Video Channels, Rogers Ignite TV and Ignite SmartStream. “The first season’s origin story of teen detectives Frank and Joe Hardy captivated audiences as the most-watched series on YTV, and we are extremely excited to premiere the second installment to an already devoted fan base on YTV andSTACKTV,” said Pam Westman, President, Nelvana.
Based on the beloved books by Franklin W. Dixon and nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award and three Canadian Screen Awards, the popular mystery series is developed and produced in Canada by Nelvana, a world-leading international producer, distributor, and licensor of children’s animated and live-action content, and Lambur Productions, in association with Corus Entertainment. “Together with Lambur Productions, we are so proud of the overwhelmingly positive reaction to Season 1, and we can’t wait to unveil this new season, where The Hardy Boys Inc. is officially open for business,” Westman said. “ Audiences can look forward to evolved storylines including supernatural elements, the power of friendship and above all - mystery.”
Filmed in Toronto and Southern Ontario, the series features an all-Canadian cast and crew. The Hardy gang is back in action with returning cast Rohan Campbell as ‘Frank Hardy,’ Alexander Elliot as ‘Joe Hardy’, Keana Lyn as ‘Callie Shaw’, Adam Swain as ‘Chet Morton’, Cristian Perri as ‘Phil Cohen’, and Riley O’Donnell as ‘Biff Hooper’. Joining the cast this season are Canadian actors Krista Nazaire as ‘Belinda Conrad’ and Sadie Munroe as ‘Lucy Wayne’. “The stakes couldn’t get any higher this season! Frank and Joe are going to be pushed to their limits to solve the mystery swirling around Bridgeport. Lucky for them they have their old friends and some new ones to help,” said Joan Lambur, Executive Producer, Lambur Productions. “We’re very grateful to both Nelvana and Corus for their continued support of The Hardy Boys."
Following a widely recognized, award-winning season, the second season picks up six months after the events of Season 1, building on the mystery and drama of the inaugural season and welcoming new friends and suspects. In Season 2, when a Bridgeport classmate mysteriously disappears, Frank and Joe Hardy drop their new normal routine to get back to detective work. But when they discover the mystical relic they destroyed last year is still in play, it becomes clear their simple missing person case is actually part of something far more sinister. The boys and their friends must quickly learn who they can and can’t trust as they race against time to unravel the truth, and ultimately realize that no one is safe from their past.
