Earlier this month, the Disney Channel debuted a brand new live-action series “Secrets Of Sulphur Springs” and Disney is doing something a little different with the release schedule for Disney+.

Up until now, new Disney Channel shows wouldn’t appear on Disney+ until about a month after the finale had aired.  This often resulted in new shows taking almost a year to arrive on Disney+ after their first broadcast, especially if there was a mid-season break.

However, “Secrets Of Sulphur Springs”, Disney announced that it would be releasing the first 5 episodes of the show onto Disney+ in the United States on Friday 26th January.  This marks the first time this has happened in the United States.  It’s been happening for a while with some of the Disney Channel shows in Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom, since those countries no longer have Disney Channels available.

The 11-episode series follows 12-year-old Griffin Campbell, whose family has just uprooted their lives to move to the small town of Sulphur Springs and take ownership of The Tremont, an abandoned hotel, in hopes of restoring it into the lively vacation destination it once was. As Griffin begins his first day at a new school, he learns the hotel he just moved into is rumored to be haunted by the ghost of a girl who disappeared decades ago. Along the way, Griffin befriends Harper, a bright-eyed, mystery-obsessed classmate. Together, they uncover a secret portal that allows them to travel back in time. In the past, they’ll attempt to uncover the key to solving this unsolved mystery, a mystery that affects everyone close to them.

The show was originally going to be a Disney+ Original, but was moved over to the Disney Channel for its debut.

This new release schedule will hopefully be something that is applied to other Disney Channel and National Geographic shows in the future, as bringing them onto Disney+ earlier, is much better for subscribers.  Hulu already gets shows from ABC and FX the following day after they air and DisneyNOW gets new episodes on the same day they debut.

    As an adult who likes paranormal or whatever you want to call them shows, this is pretty well written and acted. Now if you could tell us if Season two is in the works. It's a good show with a good premise.

    I was looking for a show that my 11-year old son and I could enjoy together after WandaVision ended and this is it! We LOVE it. I hope we get to enjoy many seasons of it. It's fun, intelligent, suspenseful, spooky, and so entertaining for all ages.
