The CW has issued an early renewal to Nancy Drew, picking up a second season of the mystery drama. The good news comes during the show's winter break, ahead of new episodes resuming on January 15.

The series premiered in October and has garnered mostly-mixed reviews. It is the latest iteration of a televised version of the mystery book series that originated in the 1930s.

Nancy Drew is led by newcomer Kennedy McMann, who plays the 18-year-old titular detective. In the series, the recent high school grad is looking forward to heading off to college, but her plans are put on hold when she is one of the witnesses - and prime suspects - of a murder in her town. As Nancy investigates the case herself, the truth about what happened begins to unravel.
