Hulu has announced that the third and final season of “The Hardy Boys” will begin streaming on Hulu in the United States on Wednesday, July 26, 2023.
Season 3 is expected to pick up following the cliffhanger events in the second season, and follow the boys and their friends as they dig up more secrets and conspiracies. Meanwhile, they’ll continue piecing together their great-grandfather’s map to uncover a powerful relic before it falls into the wrong hands.
Bailee Madison (Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin) is joining the third season in a guest-starring role. She’ll play Drew Darrow, a “fun but often frustrating new ally with a brilliant mind and appetite for magic and mysteries.”
“The Hardy Boys” is based on the books by Franklin W. Dixon and features the principal characters in their teen years. After a family tragedy strikes, Frank Hardy (Rohan Campbell), 16, and his brother Joe (Alexander Elliot), 12, are forced to move from the big city to their parent’s hometown of Bridgeport for the summer. Staying with their Aunt Trudy (Bea Santos), Frank and Joe’s quiet summer quickly comes to a halt when they discover their dad, detective Fenton Hardy (James Tupper) has taken on a secret investigation. Realizing that their Dad may be onto something the boys take it upon themselves to start an investigation of their own, and suddenly everyone in town is a suspect.
Cast of the series also includes Rohan Campbell (“Mech-X4”) as Frank Hardy and Alexander Elliot (“Detention Adventure”) 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 Hardy Boys” is executive produced by Lambur Productions’ 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”). Amanda Vaughan and Kathleen Meek will serve as production executives for Corus.
Seasons 1 and 2 of the show are currently streaming on Hulu in the U.S. and Disney+ in Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
The third season is also expected to premiere on YTV and STACKTV in Canada, with more international networks to be announced.
