Netflix’s relationship with The CW has changed meaning future shows from the network may not come onto Netflix as they have previously. The CW is bringing one of its newest series to Netflix. Or has the show been slated for HBO Max? Let’s take a look.
The series will air on The CW in October 2019. It adapts the popular book series. Kennedy McMann plays Nancy Drew, a young actress.
Nancy will be the protagonist of this series, as she attempts to unravel a supernatural mystery. The series seems to be a great CW series from the trailer. It’s camp, doesn’t take itself too seriously and looks to be a good binge.
As we mentioned, Netflix’s relationship is changing with The CW this year onwards. While all current shows will still be updated via Netflix, future series like Nancy Drew will not.
In a follow-up piece in May 2019, Deadline.com reported that “Katy Keene and Nancy Drew are both being shopped, with Netflix said to be among the contenders.”
In July 2019, it now looks as though Netflix won’t be getting Katy Keene as the show featured in the HBO Max lineup but Nancy Drew was notably absent.
In August 2019, it was announced that Netflix US won’t be getting Nancy Drew. Instead, it’s been lined up for CBS All Access which makes sense given the network produces the show.
The series is still not available for international sale as of publication. In recent years, Netflix picked up a variety of shows from The CW, including Dynasty and Riverdale. It’ll likely wait for initial results for the show before deciding whether to carry it abroad likely under its Netflix Original banner.
This could hinder the possibility that the series will be available on Netflix US.
We’ll keep updating this post as we learn more on the distribution of Nancy Drew as its October 2019 release draws closer. If you'd like to watch the series on Netflix, let us know by commenting.
