'The Hardy Boys': Release date, plot, cast, trailer and all you need to know about Hulu's thriller series
It's the thriller tragedy that 'Riverdale' tried so hard to be but could never get out of its own vapidity to achieve
It's that time of the year again where nothing is more comforting than curling up in bed, wrapped in your blankets, and pouring ample indulge into meaty thrillers. Things get even better if they are true crime, but hey, nothing matches the thrill and euphoria of past classics where our fictional favorite child heroes got down into business solving murders. After the many reboots of famed detective Nancy Drew, it is now time for the dark and gritty reprisal of 'The Hardy Boys' on the screen. And who better to take up the project than the master of the young adult thriller, Hulu. Read on to find out all you need to know about the upcoming reboot!
'The Hardy' Boys is releasing with all 13 episodes this Thursday, December 4, only on Hulu, with episodes available for streaming from midnight itself.
According to the official synopsis on IMDb, "When the Hardy Boys, Frank and Joe and their father, Fenton arrive in Bridgeport they set out to uncover the truth behind the recent tragedy that has changed their lives, and in doing so, uncover something much more sinister." Frank and Joe's move to their parent's hometown comes after the mysterious disappearance of their mother. They find a maternal figure in their aunt Trudy who they are staying with for the summer, but all hell breaks loose when deep dark secrets about their mother's disappearance come out.
Alexander Elliot plays the role of Joe Hardy, the younger of the titular brothers, with Rohan Campbell as the older one, Frank. Jennifer Hsiung hops aboard as Jesse Hooper, Keana Lyn as Callie Shaw, James Tupper plays the Hardy patriarch, Fenton, and Bea Santos plays their aunt Trudy.
Based on the original work by Edward Stratemeyer and Franklin W. Dixon, the Hulu series is directed by Jason Stone, Melanie Orr, Jeff Renfroe, and Casey Walker.
It's the thriller tragedy that 'Riverdale' tried so hard to be, but could never get out of its own vapidity to achieve. Hulu's trailer for 'The Hardy Boys' is a perfect mix of teasing horror that keeps you on the edge of your seat, rooting for kids the way we did in 'It' or even Netflix's 'Dark' for that matter. The gradual despair in the soundtrack makes those carnival scenes and jukebox fun a brilliant contrast in comparison. Check out the treat for yourself right here:
