Everyone’s favorite amateur sleuth is back — and this time, she’s fighting ghosts.
The CW dropped its first trailer for the upcoming Nancy Drew series on Thursday, revealing a dark, Riverdale-like take on the beloved children’s detective books.
Kennedy McMann stars as Nancy, a part-time waitress hellbent on solving mysteries, including the mystifying death of a well-to-do patron outsider her diner.
At first, Nancy suspects the husband. (I mean, come on. It’s always the husband.) But as the paranormal begins to reveal itself, Nancy turns her sights towards the legend of a ghostly figure long believed to haunt the town.
Gritty, campy, and with neon signs aplenty, Nancy Drew looks like the perfect next obsession for the Riverdale / Chilling Adventures of Sabrina crowd. Only time will tell if this new arrival is a cheap knock-off, or a totally killer new beginning.
Nancy Drew premieres on The CW this fall.
