When will 'Nancy Drew' Season 2 return? Here's what to expect as Nancy sets out to find her real parents
The CW show has expanded its avenues to incorporate the supernatural in itself
When 'Nancy Drew' first aired on The CW, it began as a murder mystery. A woman from the rich affluent Hudson family had died under mysterious circumstances. While all of the Horseshoe Bay thought it was a vague case, it was Nancy (Kennedy McMann) who started looking into it with suspicions on the husband Ryan Hudson (Riley Smith). A the same time, the ghost of Lucy Sable was haunting her.
Since then, the show has expanded its avenues to incorporate the supernatural in itself. Initially, many fans of Nancy Drew weren't exactly on the same page about the addition of a supernatural element to their favorite sleuth.
Where we left off
The finale episode of the show had pretty much set the stage for a new season. While the coronavirus pandemic forced to shut the production earlier than intended, we expect the story to continue where it left off. A lot of revelations were made by the end of season 1. For one, Nancy made the discovery that the Drews were actually not her biological parents. And that she is not actually Carson Drew's (Scott Wolf) daughter but Ryan's - the same man she had presumed to be murderer of multiple women at the beginning of the series. His wife has also been haunting her. And who was the mother you ask? Lucy Sable.
What we'd like to see
In the upcoming Season 2, we expect to see the show take up from where it left off. Nancy still has to confront the truth about her parentage. That still hasn't happened. EP Melinda Hsu Taylor, in an interview, had teased of a "dad triangle in the upcoming season. "It's essentially a dad triangle now, heading into Season 2. I think there's an opportunity to explore the authenticity as a parent when you let down your kid. Its really rough, but I think there’s so much juice there to propel journeys, because we want [Nancy and Carson] to get back to the good place they’re in, in the books," she said.
When is it returning
In January 2020, the network renewed the series for a second season, which is set to premiere in January 2021. But as the pandemic cut short the production of Season 1, it is likely to delay the next season as well. Either way, you mustn't expect to see a premiere date and/ or a promo for 'Nancy Drew' Season 2 anytime soon.
