The Hardy Boys Will Conclude with Upcoming Third Season
The Hardy Boys will end with its upcoming third season, Variety reports. The Canadian series, which airs on Hulu in the US and on YTV in Canada, stars Rohan Campbell and Alexander Elliot as brothers Frank and Joe, respectively, two amateur detectives. The Hardy Boys is based on the fictional book series of the same name written by multiple ghostwriters under the pseudonym Franklin W. Dixon. Production for its upcoming final season is underway in Toronto and Ontario.
Season three will follow the adventures of Frank, Joe, and their friends, as they continue to unravel the mysteries surrounding their hometown Bridgeport. Variety also reports that Bailee Madison (Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin) has signed on for season three and will join returning cast members Keana Lyn, Adam Swain, Cristian Perry, Riley O’Donnell and Krista Nazaire.
The Hardy Boys is collaboratively produced by Corus Entertainment studio Nelvana and Lambur Productions. In an official statement, Nelvana president Pam Westman said:
“From its inception, it’s been a joy to work with Lambur Productions, Hulu and YTV on ‘The Hardy Boys’ and introduce these iconic characters and gripping adventures to a new generation. The exceptional cast and crew brought the revered Hardy Boys adventures to life, successfully engaged audiences around the world and garnered awards and critical acclaim. As this mystery comes to a close, we’re looking forward to providing fans with more mystery-solving action, surprising turn-of-events, and laughs in a wild final season.”
The Hardy Boys book series premiered in 1927 and is now known as The Hardy Boys Adventures. The books remain popular among younger audiences, selling more than a million copies yearly.
“We’re excited that we’ve been able to produce a compelling and complex conclusion to ‘The Hardy Boys’ this season,” said Joan Lambur, executive producer for Lambur Productions. “It’s been an honor to work on this iconic title with an amazing cast and crew, alongside our incredibly supportive partners at Nelvana, Corus and Hulu.”
