Disney has officially announced details on the Disney+ release of the new Disney Channel series “Secrets of Sulphur Springs”, which will have a completely different Disney+ release schedule than usual Disney Channel shows in the US.
The riveting tale of mystery, suspense and time travel for kids and families, “Secrets of Sulphur Springs,” will premiere with five episodes on Friday, February 26th on Disney+ with new episodes available to stream each Friday in March through April 9th.
Since its Disney Channel premiere, “Secrets of Sulphur Springs” has reached 3.5 million total viewers (P2+), has ranked as the #1 series across all basic cable with Girls 6-11 and is the #1 series on DisneyNOW. Its season finale debuts Friday, March 12th, on Disney Channel.
Filmed and set in Louisiana, the series follows 12-year-old Griffin Campbell (Preston Oliver), whose world has been upended by his father, Ben (Josh Braaten), after he moves the family from Chicago to take ownership of an abandoned hotel property, The Tremont. Now, the family—which also includes Griffin’s mother, Sarah (Kelly Frye), and his younger twin siblings, Wyatt (Landon Gordon) and Zoey (Madeleine McGraw)—live in The Tremont in hopes of restoring it to the lively vacation destination it once was. On his first day at his new school, Griffin hears rumors that the hotel is haunted by the ghost of Savannah (Elle Graham), a girl who disappeared decades ago. He soon meets and befriends Harper (Kyliegh Curran), a thrill-seeking classmate, and they discover a secret portal that allows them to travel back in time and uncover clues about the town mystery.
The series was originally going to be a Disney+ Original, but was moved over to the Disney Channel. With fewer people watching the Disney Channel, hopefully, this could indicate a change in how new episodes of Disney Channel shows are released. In June, National Geographic will be releasing episodes of the third season of “Gordon Ramsay’s Uncharted” the day after they air. So it does look like Disney is looking to change how quickly content arrives on Disney+ after airing on traditional television.
“Secrets of Sulphur Springs” is from creator, writer and executive producer Tracey Thomson (“The Young and the Restless”). Charles Pratt Jr. (“STAR”) also serves as executive producer. The series is produced by Gwave Productions, LLC, and carries a TV-PG parental guideline.
