In the CW’s reimagining of classic young adult detective story Nancy Drew, Drew (Kennedy McMann) is reeling from her mother’s death just before Nancy was supposed to go off to college. She’s always found a sense of self from solving mysteries in her small hometown of Horseshoe Bay, Maine, but had put that off in the wake of her mother’s passing.
But now a wealthy socialite has been murdered and Nancy is a prime suspect in the crime along with others of her school mates: Nancy’s nemesis, George Fan (Leah Lewis); a rich girl with a mysterious past, Bess Marvin (Maddison Jaizani); Nancy’s secret boyfriend, Ned “Nick” Nickerson (Tunji Kasim); and amiable burnout Ace (Alex Saxon).
As she tries to solve the crime and plot her future, Nancy comes into conflict with her widowed father, Carson (Scott Wolf), who is dating Detective Karen Hart (Alvina August).
And when her investigation seems to become haunted, she also gets pulled into the cold case of a local girl’s murder.
Nancy Drew is a production of CBS Television Studios in association with Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage’s Fake Empire. Joining Schwartz and Savage as executive producers are Noga Landau, Melinda Hsu Taylor and Lis Rowinski.
Nancy Drew premieres on The CW on Wednesday, Oct. 9, at 9 p.m.
