Here’s what you can expect from the Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage-produced Nancy Drew: “Set in the summer after her high school graduation, 18-year-old Nancy Drew (Kennedy McMann) thought she’d be leaving her hometown for college, but when a family tragedy holds her back another year, she finds herself embroiled in a ghostly murder investigation — and along the way, uncovers secrets that run deeper than she ever imagined.”

'Nancy Drew': Scott Wolf Replaces Freddie Prinze Jr. in CW Drama

Scott Wolf is headed to The CW.

The Party of Five and The Night Shift grad has been tapped to star in the network's newly ordered Nancy Drew reboot. The casting brings the actor back to the former WB Network after he starred in seasons three and four of Everwood.

Wolf replaces Freddie Prinze Jr. in the project from Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage (Gossip Girl, Dynasty). Sources say producers wanted to go on a different direction and the split was amicable. Recastings are increasingly common this time of year as networks review audience testing and refine casts based on those results and newly available talent whose pilots did not go to series.

Wolf will take over the role of Carson Drew, the father of the teen sleuth played by Kennedy McMann in a potentially breakout role. The character is described as an attorney who has become estranged from his daughter after the death of his wife. His relationship with Nancy is thrown into disarray when the sleuth's murder investigation reveals secrets from his past.
