Nancy Drew Trailer: A Sexy Mystery Drama with a Convincing Hook Express News
The kids of Riverdale have some competition.
The CW today unveiled the official trailer for Nancy Drew, and we’re starting to see why it was paired with Riverdale.
It looks fairly similar in tone and look to the show that will be leading into it in the fall, and that’s a good thing.
Darky, sexy mysteries are The CW’s holy grail, and the first trailer for Nancy Drew is heavy on all of the good things.

Here’s the official synopsis:
“Nancy Drew (Kennedy McMann) is a brilliant teenaged detective whose sense of self had come from solving mysteries in her hometown of Horseshoe Bay, Maine – until her mother’s untimely death derails Nancy’s college plans.”
“Devastated by her mother’s passing, Nancy swears off crime-solving while crossing off the days until she can re-apply to college.”
“But when a socialite is murdered, Nancy finds herself a prime suspect in the crime, along with a group of other teens present at the scene: Nancy’s nemesis from high school, 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).”
“The five of them must team up to clear their own names – encountering emotional entanglements and even more mysteries along the way.”
“Nancy’s reawakening brings her into conflict with her widowed father, Carson Drew (Scott Wolf), who is dating Detective Karen Hart (Alvina August).”

“And, when a supernatural presence begins to haunt Nancy’s investigation, she discovers that the current crime has an astonishing connection to the unsolved murder of a local girl.”
“Whether the ghost is here to help, or hinder Nancy remains to be seen, but one thing’s for sure: Nancy’s going to have to unravel the clues from both the living and the dead to solve the crimes.”
