Hulu’s Hardy Boys will not be returning for a fourth season. Variety confirmed that Hardy Boys will end following Season 3, which officially kicked off production today. The live-action series, which hails from Corus Entertainment studio Nelvana and Lambur Productions, is officially filming its final eight episodes in Toronto and southern Ontario, Canada.
“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.”Pam Westman, president of Nelvana
Along with the news that the series will be ending, Variety also confirmed that Bailee Madison has joined the cast in a recurring role. Madison, who is perhaps best known for Pretty Little Liars: Original Sin, has also starred in Hallmark Channel’s Good Witch, Just Go With It, and The Strangers: Prey at Night. She is set to play Drew Darrow, a character described as a “fun but often frustrating new ally with a brilliant mind and appetite for magic and mysteries.”
Madison will join returning cast members Rohan Campbell, Alexander Elliot, Keana Lyn, Adam Swain, Cristian Perry, Riley O’Donnell, and Krista Nazaire. The final season of Hardy Boys is expected to hit Hulu sometime next year. The first two seasons are now streaming on Hulu and Disney+ in Canada and internationally.
