Clue was an American five-part mystery television miniseries based on the Parker Brothers board game of the same name, which aired on The Hub from November 14, 2011 to November 17, 2011.[1] The series features a youthful, ensemble cast working together, uncovering clues to unravel a mystery.[2][3]

The series was created by Raven Metzner and stars Sterling Beaumon as Seamus, Sarah Desjardins as Whitney, Kendall Amyre Ferguson as Agnes, Ana Golja as Liz, Stephan James as Dmitri, and Zach Mills as Lucas.


The series features the iconic characters and weapons from the world's most famous crime-solving board game, Clue and follows six very different young sleuths as they witness a terrible crime and embark on a mysterious adventure they could never have imagined. Along the way, they find they have more in common than they thought, as they uncover hidden treasures and decipher cryptic knowledge to reveal a dark and secret society.[4]


On August 6, 2010, The Hub announced that an original half-hour program based on the board game, Clue would air as an original miniseries on the network.[5] The miniseries was shot on Location in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada under Hasbro Studios. On November 14, 2011 creator and executive producer Raven Metzner told that he was hoping for an opportunity to create more mysteries for the characters, but could not say when, or if, there would be another season.[6]

The series premiere brought in 189,000 viewers.[7] Brian Lowry of Variety said "Marketing-driven constructs are often the kiss of death creatively speaking, however the commercial template surrounding Hub's miniseries based on "Clue"—consisting of five half-hour segments—is clever enough to overcome such concerns." Lowry continued, "In short, Hub is replicating some of the old razzle-dazzle of local kids' TV, for better or worse, around a production that ought to possess some multigenerational appeal."[8]
