How many seasons of Nancy Drew are there?
As of January 2022, three seasons of Nancy Drew have been released. And as announced by The CW on March 22nd, Nancy Drew is coming back for a season 4.
What will happen in Nancy Drew season 4?
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly published right after the Nancy Drew season 3 finale, executive producer Melinda Hsu Taylor revealed that season 4 “will definitely pick up with Ace (Alex Saxon) wanting to know why Nancy (Kennedy McMann) ran out of his apartment” before they almost shared a kiss.
“His question to her, ‘Are you in trouble?’ is going to be the thing on his mind … when we start season 4. ‘Why did Nancy run out of my apartment just when I thought she was going to kiss me? I bet she’s in trouble, I need to find out what’s going on,’” Taylor said of what viewers can expect from Ace at the beginning of the new season.
Executive producer Noga Landau added that “season 4 is going to be a season of intense yearning” for both Nancy and Ace. “For me, this show is always about the simmering love and yearning — for multiple characters, but especially for Nancy, and now for Nancy and Ace together,” Landau said.
In the season 3 finale, Temperance (Olivia Taylor Dudley) planted a curse on Nancy that would take Ace’s life if the pair ever got together romantically. Although there might be a way to solve the curse, Landau revealed that Nancy won’t immediately look for a way to undo it.
“She doesn’t know if she can tell him she loves him. She doesn’t know if she can even tell him about the curse without triggering it. So she has to kind of figure out the rules of it [first],” Landau said of how Nancy would try to undo the curse in season 4.
Last season also ended with the Drew Crew going their separate ways as they tried to figure out their respective futures as adults. But Taylor assured fans that the intention is to have the members of the core group reunite in season 4 amid their new beginnings.
“They’ll always come back together, for sure,” Taylor said. “We now kind of have people in different areas of law enforcement. George (Leah Lewis) is going to be pursuing law, and Ace works at a morgue, Bess (Maddison Jaizani) has got the mystical thing covered which, technically, is a community leader and has a lot of connections to the town.”
Taylor continued, “There’s a lot of opportunity for teamwork. I’m excited for the friend group and how they come back together in a slightly evolved, not like the other thing was bad, but just as people get more life experience, your friendships evolve as well.”
When will Nancy Drew season 4 come out?
No filming news has been made public yet, but since season 3 premiered in October 2021, season 4 will probably premiere around October of this year.
