Watch the Trailer for The CW's Spooky, Sexy Nancy Drew Reboot

Because what The CW was missing was MORE hot teens solving murders

Sadie Gennis

The kids of Riverdale won't be the only teens solving murders on The CW for much longer. The network will debut a sexy reboot of Nancy Drew this fall, and we've got your first look at it.

Picking up the summer after Nancy Drew's (Kennedy McMann) high school graduation, the series will find the titular heroine putting her college plans on hold after suffering a family tragedy. But things will get complicated for Nancy as she gets caught up in a murder investigation and struggles with her estranged father (Scott Wolf). Of course, things won't all be doom and gloom for the young detective; she also will be pining for her secret flame Ned "Nick" Nickerson (Tunji Kasim). Oh yeah, and there also might be the ghost of a pageant queen haunting poor Nancy and her friends! And, because this is The CW, the ghost also might be behind the murder too!!!

To get fans even more hyped for the series, The CW also released a first look clip that shows Nancy discovering the body of the dead socialite, Tiffany Hudson, while working a waitressing shift at a crab shack, which is clearly the Pop's Diner of Horseshoe Bay.

Nancy Drew will air Wednesdays at 9/8c after Riverdale, meaning fans will be treated to a two-hour block of sexy teens solving mysteries. Who could want anything more from The CW, really?
