Since its January 15 premiere, the series has drawn strong ratings for Disney Channel. It has reached 8.4 million total viewers, ranked as the No. 1 series across all television with girls 6-11, as well as the No. 1 live-action series on DisneyNow. Production on Season 2 will begin in June.
Created, written and executive produced by Tracey Thomson (The Young and the Restless), Secrets of Sulpher Springs is filmed and set in Louisiana. The first season followed 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.
Season 2 will take a deeper look into Harper’s family history and their connection to The Tremont. What will start as a fact-finding mission will soon turn into a high-stakes adventure that could forever change her friendship with Griffin.
Charles Pratt Jr. (Star) serves as showrunner and executive produces with Thomson. The series is produced by Gwave Productions.
