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.

Are you excited to see “Secrets Of Sulphur Springs” on Disney+?

    This is an amazing show for the whole family! Great to see it going to Disney* — my newest favorite streaming destination!

    Tonight, I purchased Disney Plus just so my Daughter could watch The Secrets Of Sulpher Springs and she was in tears because it's not on there.

    1. laurie February 16, 2021

      we were trying to find it on there too....

    2. DrewsClues February 17, 2021

      He typoed. It's coming FEBRUARY 26 and then episodes 6-11 will be weekly through March and first 2 weeks of April!

      1. Kat March 22, 2021

        Not quite accurate as all 11 are already available and it’s not April yet 🤪

    3. Megan February 27, 2021

      Sulpher springs is on Nickelodeon. This is on bell in Canada. Great show!

    4. Tiny Dancer March 1, 2021

      I just stumbled upon the show last night. I googled and it said there were 11 episodes so I thought I would be all caught up today. Nope...Disney+ showed the first 5 episodes. Oh well, I guess it's back to other stuff. I have Roku, Amazon Prime, Hulu, Netflix and Frndly so I'll just continue to find some other stuff. But hey, I did notice they finally put Dog With A Blog on Dis+!!

      I just saw this online after I posted my message about 5 minutes ago. Your daughter can start streaming now! I just watched the first 5 episodes on Disney+. Google says there are 11 episodes in Season 1 and this is lineup for the rest of the season. "It will debut on the streamer on Friday, Feb. 26, with the first five episodes, and a new (for Disney+) episode available to stream each Friday through April 9."

    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.

  5. BeachGrl27 February 28, 2021

    Sorry, I just don’t understand why things can’t be released all over the world at the same time? Or within a short timeframe of each other. Moving to Australia from the US it’s pretty shocking how the rest of the world treats us here like we are on another planet. There are 25M consumers in this country, that’s a nice chunk of $$ to these companies if they would start paying attention. FYI Netflix airs weekly episodes of their series 1 day after the US.

    I truly want the 2nd season! How can I get it?

  7. Jaime johns March 6, 2021

    Next Friday will be the 11th episode of the first season. I would love to have or know how to watch the 2nd episode.

  8. Shannon March 6, 2021

    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.

  9. Dream March 6, 2021

  10. Lori Solt March 9, 2021

    When will secrets of sulphur springs episodes 7 and the rest of season 1 appear on Disney plus I see it’s appearing on the Disney channel but no news when the rest will come out on Disney plus please

      1. Kat March 22, 2021

        I’ve waited 2 weeks for the next episode so no they’re not

      2. Nick March 23, 2021

        Actually, they aren't. It's already been 2 weeks and no more episodes have been released.

  14. Robert Britz March 16, 2021

    All episodes should have came out for Disney+ FIRST and then came out on the website. We pay for the + for a reason. What's the point of Disney+ if we have to wait for NEW shows/series to end their runs on other platforms?

  15. Paula March 18, 2021

    Please release all 11 Episodes of Season 1 on Disney+, as many of your Disney+ subscribers are now choosing to use Antenna TV and pay for selected TV Apps. Be grateful we choose to pay for your app and don't leave us hanging.

  16. Kathy March 18, 2021

    Why aren't episodes 8,9, and 10 on Disney +?

    1. Roger Palmer March 27, 2021

      New episodes are being released weekly, usually... a Disney Channel show doesn't arrive until a month after the finale airs

  17. Susan Hicken March 21, 2021

    When will episodes 9 to 11 be released to Disney + ?

  18. Sean March 23, 2021

    Disney has only released the first eight episodes on their Disney+ channel. There is no information about the last three. I've contacted their so-called "Help" with Live Chat, and nobody could tell me anything. No wonder Netflix is beating the daylights out of this channel!

  19. Pam Waller May 7, 2021

    Such an amazing show! I truely enjoy it and look forward to each episode

  20. Jan Miller May 15, 2021

    Was enjoying sulphur springs on Disney plus then, after episode 6 it disappeared, what’s happened ? I looked up online and found there should be 11 episodes in Series one and series 2 due to air. I’m confused

  21. Emma May 18, 2021

    As at today 18th May 2021 I've watched 7 episodes in the UK, there are 11 so why are the others not on Disney plus yet?

      1. Cruello June 5, 2021

        In Malaysia, They are only first 5 episodes and I am still waiting for 6-11 episodes
