Freddie Prinze Jr. has been cast in the CW’s untitled Nancy Drew pilot!

The 43-year-old actor will play the role of the title character’s father, Carson Drew, who’s described as “a dynamic attorney who has become estranged from Nancy following the recent death of his beloved wife — but his attempts to reconnect with his daughter run aground when Nancy’s murder investigation reveals unsettling secrets from Carson’s own past.”

The classic mystery series centers on 18-year-old Nancy Drew and is set in the summer after her high school graduation. She thought she’d be leaving her hometown for college, a family tragedy holds her back another year, and she finds herself embroiled in a ghostly murder investigation — and along the way, uncovers secrets that run deeper than she ever imagined.

Kennedy McCann will play Nancy to Freddie’s Carson.
