To say fans of the Nancy Drew franchise are excited that the CW is bringing the series back to life is an understatement. The first books were published in the 1930s and Nancy Drew has been an iconic character throughout American history ever since. Written under a pen name “Carolyn Keene” the series has been crafted by ghostwriters. Since its inception, Nancy Drew has appeared on the silver screen and on television. The first Nancy Drew movies were made in the late 30s.
The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries became a popular television series that aired from 1977 until 1979 and starred Pamela Sue Martin in the titular role. The series saw a reboot in 1995 with a younger, new cast, but was quickly canceled due to poor ratings. In 2002, there was an ABC made-for-television Nancy Drew movie that starred Maggie Lawson.
It wasn’t until Emma Roberts played Nancy Drew in the eponymous movie in 2007, that the character proved to be marketable once again.
On March 15, 2019, a Warner Brothers movie called Nancy Drew and the Hidden Stairs was released.
Fans are ready for a Nancy Drew series they can delve into and that will capture attention, hook viewers and become a hit.
The CW promises this is going to be that series and Kennedy McMann will be the one to take viewers there.
