Former “Party of Five” star Scott Wolf is set to replace Freddie Prinze Jr. in the cast of the new series adaptation of “Nancy Drew” which has been ordered to series by The CW.
Wolf will take over the role of Carson Drew, the father of the teen sleuth (Kennedy McMann) and 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.
Producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage reportedly wanted to go on a different direction and the split was amicable.
