A producer on Nancy Drew is slamming The CW after the series finale has aired!
Executive producer Larry Teng took to X, aka Twitter, to air some greivances about how they found out that the drama series was being canceled last fall.
It was announced in October 2022 that the fourth season would be the final season, amid many other cancelations on the network as they restructure under new ownership.
However, Larry shares that while they only had about four episodes to film, the new leadership at the network didn’t give them a heads up at all on their plans to not renew the show. He noted that they found out because they called the studio bosses to ask about scheduling to plan for star Kennedy McMann to try and work out so she could be on Nancy Drew and her potential new series The Good Lawyer.
See what he said inside…
“So… this could be long. From what I’ve read, the reaction to the series finale have been mostly positive. Now imagine if you watched that finale without us knowing it would be the last episode of #NancyDrew ever. Because that’s what almost happened,” Larry started out.
“Kennedy was in line to shoot THE GOOD LAWYER. And like any good agent would do, Kennedy’s rep asked our Studio what our future schedule for NANCY DREW was going to look like. Our Studio wanted to try and make it work for Kennedy so she could do both.”
He then said, “And so CBS Studios made a call to The CW. Right around the time we were in prep on Episode 410. And asked the president of the new CW when we would find out about a pickup so we could make scheduling decisions. And it was then, he said to us ‘Oh, we’re not picking you up the show is too expensive.’”
“Had our Studio not made that call, who knows if we would’ve ever been told. At that point in the season there were only four episodes left to shoot and the writers were already breaking the finale,” Larry added. “What a f–king sh–ty way of telling us we were getting canceled. Thank God the Studio called. Because you all deserved the most proper ending possible. That’s why I praise the writers for pulling it together at the end. It was so glib.”
He also added that he has friends on Kung Fu, which also got canceled, who never got the chance to give the show a proper ending. Check out ALL of Larry‘s posts below…
