Nancy Drew: Season 1 (2019)

SEASON:

Season 1
Nancy Drew

Critics Consensus

An appealing aesthetic and promising ensemble can't quite liven up Nancy Drew, a broody and bland mystery that follows too closely in the footsteps of the shows it aspires to be.

Critic Reviews for Nancy Drew Season 1

All Critics (30) | Top Critics (11)

While this series goes forth as a supernatural thriller approach to the Nancy Drew story, it doesn't go overboard with the supernatural element, realizing that less is more in this type of story.

So sure, a lot of Nancy Drew is silly and contrived and much too easy. Some of the teased-out plot developments are disappointing... Yet, it's a nice complement to Riverdale and, even with the ghosts, is still more low-key and less ridiculous.

It's not there yet, it's really struggling, but you sense that it's got the goods somewhere.

All of which makes the new Nancy Drew a full-circle reminder that sometimes works that appear to borrow from what came before are actually reclaiming inspirations that these gifted to pop culture long ago.

Dec 11, 2019 | Full Review…

What makes Nancy Drew's appeal span generations, however, aren't her relationships. It's the mysteries themselves... The first two episodes do not yet prove that this new drama has captured that very crucial aspect of the Nancy Drew legacy quite yet.

Oct 10, 2019 | Full Review…

I'm not thrilled about how we end here, but I'm holding out hope for a broader plan.

Oct 10, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Nancy Drew did an excellent job reeling viewers in, making their spines tingle, and setting up multiple plot lines to be further explored throughout the season.

Oct 10, 2019 | Rating: 4.3/5.0 | Full Review…

This fun new series... is infected by a dank, near-Gothic level of adolescent anxiety -- fans of Riverdale and The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina will be happy.

Oct 17, 2019 | Full Review…

This Nancy Drew feels a breath of fresh air in a TV landscape full of cookie cutter remakes and revivals. It may not be an original concept, but it's certainly an original spin on a franchise we already know and love.

Oct 10, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

As if to apologize for last week's lackluster outing, Nancy Drew comes back swinging with "The Lady of Larkspur Lane..."

Jan 29, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It just feels dreary.

Nov 7, 2019 | Full Review…

Soapy revival of classic book character is mature, dull.

Audience Reviews for Nancy Drew: Season 1

    This is one of my top 10 favorite new shows of 2019. I love how they mix mystery, drama, and horror all in one show. The writing and storyline are phenomenal, I love all of the horror elements. The acting is excellent especially from Leah Lewis, Alex Saxon, Maddison Jaizani, Kennedy McMann, and Scott Wolf. The visual effects are outstanding especially Dead Lucy. Overall a pretty terrific first season.

    I love this series. I'm not normally into a supernatural aspect of a show, but I've really enjoyed it and I hope they renew for a second season. I feel like this is different than anything else streaming right now.

    Nancy Drew series puts a great twist on a classic show. Love this series!!!!!!!
  • Jan 03, 2020
    It's fun and engaging, and it's got enough plot twists to make it obvious that it's showrunner knows what he or she is doing. It's a CW show, so it's got that supernatural thing going (which is occasionally exceedingly unrealistic). I love the characters and can't wait to watch the next episode every time one comes out. It doesn't really get better than that in terms of content for me.

    I LOVE this show so much I binge watched all of the episodes and I really hope it's renewed for a 2 season. I love mysteries and ghosts etc/shows about those things. so this show was amazing and so fun to watch for me!. ❤️👍

    So far I like it. I do think that a lot of the mysteries seem to be solved by convenience rather than her actual sleuthing. I like the supernatural element but I also find it to be far fetched, in particular the latest episode with "Simon." I wish they would focus a more on trying to solve the murders and the inter workings of the Marvin/Hudson families. They dropped a lot on us in the episode about what Lucy saw and then not much else....

    At the first, I thought it wasn't good, but god, you must see it! However, the film's horror scenes doesn't meet my expectation
  • Dec 08, 2019
    It has potential, but I find it hard to like Nancy and I think that there is too many instances of "convenient situations" helping her solve the cases instead of the Nancy Drew talent of perception that we love in the books. I hope the pacing and the dialogue gets better and please stop with all of the contrived conveniences.

    I started watching this series and, so far, am really loving it. It's engaging and intriguing. Intelligently written and truly enjoyable!!

    Very suspenseful. So far I really like this show
