Nancy Drew at NYCC 2020: All we know about the virtual panel

Everything we know about Nancy Drew at NYCC 2020

Like San Diego Comic-Con, New York Comic-Con 2020 is going virtual. Nancy Drew was one of the virtual panels included in the first wave of announcements.

What do we know about the panel so far? What do we hope to learn? Let’s break all that down.

Who will be in the panel?

It’s many of the usual suspects when it comes to the panel for Nancy Drew at NYCC 2020. Stars Kennedy McMann, Scott Wolf, Alex Saxon, Leah Lewis, Maddison Jaizani, and Tunji Kasim will be there as they were for the 2019 panel.

There’s an extra guest added for this one. Riley Smith, who plays Ryan Hudson, will also join his co-stars. This certainly hints that Ryan is getting a bigger role in Nancy Drew Season 2. Considering the big reveals at the end of the first season and the direction the show his heading, that’s not surprising. As a Riley Smith fan, I’m excited to see him continue his role on the series.

Creator Noga Landau and showrunner Melinda Hsu Taylor will also join the panel. It makes sense as they’ll be able to tease themes and overall storyline focuses rather than for the individual characters.

What to expect during the Nancy Drew panel

Like SDCC, we’ll likely find that the panels are all pre-recorded. That means no chance for live questions to be answered. However, there is a chance that there will be a time running up to the panel for questions to be submitted for the panel to answer.

Hopefully, we’ll get to learn a little more about the storylines to come on Nancy Drew Season 2. The first season ended with us learning Nancy’s father Carson isn’t her biological father. Ryan Hudson is, which opens up a world of possibility for Nancy but also leads to some major questions about Nancy’s identity.

There’s also the situation with the aglaeca, which was left open at the end of the first season due to the abrupt ending. Will the panel tease some storylines surrounding that? The last we saw, the Drew Crew experienced their deaths, but can they do anything to prevent those deaths from happening?
