Season 2: Episode 1 of Nancy Drew takes place this evening (July 31, 2021) on M-Net (DStv channel 101) at 20h30.

Nancy Drew is an American supernatural mystery drama television series based on the series of mystery novels about the titular character. The series was adapted for The CW by Noga Landau, Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, and is produced by CBS Studios, in association with Fake Empire.

The series is narrated and led by the amateur sleuth Nancy Drew, played by Kennedy McMann, and features an ensemble cast with re-imagined versions of the characters from the books: Leah Lewis as George Fan, Maddison Jaizani as Bess Marvin, Tunji Kasim as Ned Nickerson and Scott Wolf as Carson Drew. It also stars Alex Saxon, Alvina August and Riley Smith as new characters invented for the series.

Nancy & co work to outsmart the Aglaeca, the vengeful sea spirit that cursed them at the end of Series 1. But mysteries pile up when Detective Tamura reveals that a young woman who was struck by a car in the woods said Nancy’s name just before she passed out. That young woman is Amanda Bobbsey and yes, she has a twin brother named Gil who’s now missing… along with the magic mirror that the twins believe the “Drew Crew” can use to subdue the Aglaeca.
