But fans looking for another go with Calvin and his stuffed tiger will have to keep waiting. The new Mysteries is being described as” a fable for grown-ups” and centers around an unfortunate kingdom from long ago. Its king sends knights to discover why there are so many unexplained disasters, but after a few years, only one knight returns.
