Secrets of Sulphur Springs is coming to Disney+ audiences in the UK (and Ireland/ Canada) in April

WhatsonDisneyPlus has details for the arrival of hit show Secrets of Sulphur Springs this April:

The series (filmed and set in Louisiana) 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.

In other words, it’s all the classic ingredients we’ve seen in numerous YA shows, just aimed at a younger audience than usual, as the trailer makes clear. It makes a change not to see angst-ridden teens or angry twenty-somethings juggling work/life/school/romance/adolescence/super powers/… though if the show stays popular anything’s possible. Instead there’s a more focussed, stripped back story that can be told.

Unusually the show arrived for streaming with a cluster of five episodes in the US in late February, with one episode per week since. This after first appearing on the Disney Channel in January. The pattern is set to be repeated when the show arrives in the UK in April. Until then, the trailer will let you decide if this is something for younger members of your family.
