The New Nancy Drew Series Looks Like a Mix of Riverdale and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
If you grew up reading the Nancy Drew mystery books as a kid, then brace yourself for a dark twist on all of her most memorable cases. Our favorite headband-wearing teenage sleuth has officially gotten her own series on The CW, and by the looks of the newly released trailer, it’s already received the Riverdale treatment.
The dark and gritty trailer, which features snippets from the show’s first season, follows Nancy and her friends as they navigate high school and attempt to solve Horseshoe Bay’s most mysterious cases. While Nancy is definitely giving off a Betty Cooper vibe to the extreme, there are more than a few shots that had me double-taking to make sure I wasn’t watching The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. The most haunting part, though, is that the entire video is set to a cover of Rockwell’s “Somebody’s Watching Me,” and it had me shivering in my seat.
Watch the full trailer for the upcoming show above, and prepare for the big premiere on Oct. 9 at 9 p.m.
