Nancy Drew: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

Nancy Drew: Season 1 (2019)




Critic 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.

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

It just feels dreary.

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