What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on The CW television network, Nancy Drew stars Kennedy McMann, Scott Wolf, Leah Lewis, Maddison Jaizani, Tunji Kasim, Alex Saxon, and Riley Smith. Nancy Drew (McMann) is a brilliant teenage detective whose sense of self had come from solving mysteries in her hometown of Horseshoe Bay, Maine – until her mother’s untimely death derails Nancy’s college plans. She and her close friends, aka the Drew Crew, ultimately discover the stunning truth about Lucy Sable, the ghost who’d been haunting Nancy. The third season brings Nancy and her friends standalone cases, new love interests, and emotional journeys of self-discovery – culminating in a showdown with Temperance, which results in a shattering turn that will profoundly change all of their lives.
Season Three Ratings
The third season of Nancy Drew averaged a 0.05 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 349,000 viewers in the live+same day ratings (includes all DVR playback through 3:00 AM). Compared to season two, that’s down by 35% in the demo and down by 24% in viewership. While these numbers don’t include further delayed or streaming viewing, they are a very good indicator of how a show is performing, especially when compared to others on the same channel. There can be other economic factors involved in a show’s fate, but the higher-rated series are usually renewed and the lower-rated ones are cancelled. Find out how Nancy Drew stacks up against other CW TV shows.
Will The CW cancel or renew Nancy Drew for season four? While the show is based on a beloved brand, the traditional ratings haven’t been great. The show’s ratings often double when delayed live+7 day viewership is factored in and presumably, the series sees a good-sized bump in streaming. Given that the series is spinning off another show, Tom Swift, I would think that it’s sure to be renewed. However, The CW is up for sale so the network’s business model is likely to change once it’s no longer owned by Warner Bros. and ViacomCBS (the studios which supply much of its programming). I think Nancy Drew’s fate is very much up in the air. I’ll update this page with breaking developments. Subscribe for free alerts on Nancy Drew cancellation or renewal news.
