The Hardy Boys are on the case at Hulu: The streamer has unveiled a trailer for a series based on the iconic characters from the amateur teenage sleuth novels.
The Canadian import follows 16-year-old Frank Hardy (played by Rohan Campbell, Virgin River) and his 12-year-old brother Joe (Alexander Elliot) after a family tragedy forces them to relocate to their parents’ hometown of Bridgeport for the summer. “Staying with their Aunt Trudy (Murdoch Mysteries‘ Bea Santos), Frank and Joe’s quiet summer quickly comes to a halt when they discover their dad, detective Fenton Hardy (Big Little Lies‘ James Tupper), has taken on a secret investigation,” per the official synopsis. “Realizing that their dad may be onto something, the boys take it upon themselves to start an investigation of their own, and suddenly everyone in town is a suspect.”
The Hardy Boys premieres with all 13 episodes on Friday, Dec. 4.
