Nancy Drew is set to air its season 2 finale this Wednesday, and while there’s a possibility that its sophomore run will end with a huge cliffhanger, fans can find solace in the fact that season 3 of the supernatural mystery drama has long been confirmed.
Nancy Drew was actually one of the 12 scripted series that The CW renewed for another season last February for the 2021-22 television season. Earlier this month, the network revealed that Nancy Drew season 3 will premiere in the fall and will move from Wednesday to Friday at 9 p.m. ET.
Developed by Noga Landau, Josh Schwartz, and Stephanie Savage for TV, Nancy Drew stars Kennedy McMann as the titular 18-year-old who finds herself involved in a ghostly mystery when she and her four friends witness a murder. Dubbed as the Drew Crew, they all team up to find the real culprit responsible for the killing. At the end of season 1, the Drew Crew ultimately discover the stunning truth about Lucy Sable, the ghost who’d been haunting Nancy.
Season 2 finds Nancy dealing with the aftermath of that discovery. She also becomes an investigator for the legal practice of her father, Carson (Scott Wolf), which leads to the Drew Crew exploring standalone cases as they find new romances and experience emotional journeys along the way.
Since the season 3 finale has yet to air, it’s not clear if everyone will make it through the season alive. But because Nancy and the rest of the Drew Crew are an integral part of the series, it’s likely that McMann, Leah Lewis (Georgia “George” Fan), Maddison Jaizani (Bess Marvin), Tunji Kasim (Ned “Nick” Nickerson), and Alex Saxon as Ace will all be returning for the next season.
Nancy Drew season 3 doesn’t have an exact release date yet, but since it is set to debut in the fall, fans can expect the new batch of episodes to premiere between September and December this year.
