Secrets Of Sulphur Springs Season 2 Release Date, Cast, And Plot - What We Know So Far

One of the Disney Channel's newest breakout hits, "Secrets of Sulphur Springs," has been a rating success ever since it premiered on the network in early 2021, per Deadline. The time-traveling mystery set in the unassuming Sulphur Springs, Louisiana, quickly became first in viewership ratings among younger viewers and enjoyed even more success after it received a high-profile debut on Disney+.

According to Deadline, all of that attention has helped the series land a second season with the Disney Channel. This means that fans of the "Stranger Things"-influenced family mystery will have another chance to see Griffin (Preston Oliver) and Harper (Kyliegh Curran) uncover the titular secrets of Sulphur Springs.

While fans have another set of episodes on the way to look forward to, Disney has yet to announce many specifics about what fans should expect when the show returns to the air. Here is everything that viewers waiting for "Secrets of Sulphur Spring" need to know about Season 2's release date, cast, and plot.

Updated October 13, 2021: This article has been updated to reflect new information revealed in the Season 2 trailer for 'Secrets of Sulphur Springs."

When is the release date for Secrets of Sulphur Springs Season 2?

For a while after its announcement, the Disney Channel was playing coy with the release date info for Season 2.

When Deadline announced that the Disney Channel had ordered Season 2 of the program, the report noted that the production was scheduled to get underway in June of 2021. The filming schedule of the first season was delayed due to the COVID pandemic, according to Cinemaholic, but the show was still able to launch its debut episode in January 2021 after finishing its second round of filming in November.

The hope initially was that the production company would turn the show around that quickly a second time, and that Season 2 of "Secrets of Sulphur Springs" would be made available for a winter 2022 debut. That all must have come to pass, because according a much-anticipated "Secrets of Sulphur Springs" teaser that aired during the October 1 episode of "DCOM Under Wraps," the new season is coming to the Disney Channel in January, 2022 (via Just Jared Jr).

Who is in the cast of Secrets of Sulphur Springs Season 2?

One of the biggest challenges that "Secrets of Sulphur Springs" faced during its pre-production was finding the right cast to tell the show's family-friendly tale of a haunted hotel. The show was originally being developed as a Disney+ original, but the streaming service backed out after an extended casting effort that lasted months failed, according to Deadline.

Considering the trouble that the Disney Channel went through to assemble the cast, viewers can assume that "Secrets of Sulphur Springs" will make an effort to retain as many actors as possible. That means that fans can expect Preston Oliver to return as Griffin, and they will most likely see Kyliegh Curran play his best friend, Harper. Also expected to reprise their roles are the remainder of the Campbell family, with Madeleine McGraw and Landon Gordon to return as Griffin's twin brother and sister, Zoey and Wyatt. Griffin's parents, Sarah and Ben, will once again be played by Kelly Frye and Josh Braaten, per IMDb. We also know that Diandra Lyle, who plays Jess Dunn, has been promoted to series regular for the forthcoming sophomore outing, so look for her to have more involvement in the story going forward (via Deadline).

However, some of the characters who were specific to the Season 1 storyline may be less likely to return. For example, Elle Graham, who also appeared in "Stranger Things," played Savannah, the girl who disappeared 30 years before the events of "Secrets of Sulphur Springs." Considering the resolution that Season 1 brought to her story, she may appear in a reduced role for Season 2, if she appears at all.

Per the recent teaser, we also know that several young actors have officially been added to the roster for Season 2. Johari Washington, Ethan Hutchison, Eugene Byrd, Kenneisha Thompson, and Robert Manning Jr are all officially confirmed, though little is known about the respective roles they'll all be assuming. Guess that's just one more secret of Sulphur Springs we'll have to wait until January to find out.

What is the plot of Secrets of Sulphur Springs Season 2?

The Disney Channel hasn't given out too many clues as to what sort of the new twists that fans can expect from "Secrets of Sulphur Springs" Season 2, but the conclusion of Season 1 held a couple of hints.

Despite all of the strange occurrences that happen to Griffin and his family in The Tremont hotel, the family decides to make the best of it and remain in Sulphur Springs, meaning that fans can expect more time travel adventures in Season 2. However, the season finale also revealed that the person haunting The Tremont is not Savannah, but could be a mysterious figure with a strong resemblance to Hannah.

Another unresolved issue at the end of Season 1 is the man in the rocking chair, whose significance is not explained in those final moments. Viewers may discover that he has something to do with the radio that facilitates time travel in the show, or that he is connected to Harper's past. Fans will just have to tune in to "Secrets of Sulphur Springs" Season 2 when it finally arrives to find out.
