“A Heads Up Would Have Been Nice”: Nancy Drew Producer Disappointed By Cancellation Notice

NOTE: This article is 8 months old and may not include the most recent information.

Larry Teng, executive producer of the recently cancelled mystery series Nancy Drew, voiced disappointment over how The CW handled communication around the show’s ending.

With season 4 filming nearly complete, the Nancy Drew team contacted the network to coordinate future production schedules. It was during this outreach they learned the show would not continue.

“We were surprised to find out in this manner,” said Teng on X / Twitter. “If we hadn’t reached out proactively, we may not have known about the cancellation until much later.”

According to Teng, the late notice left the writers racing to tie up storylines and craft a finale. He praised their efforts under pressure but expressed frustration over the lack of advance warning.

Teng claimed other shows, like Kung Fu, faced similar situations where cancellation came too late to end the story on their own terms.

While acknowledging networks make tough programming decisions, Teng asserted creators and crews should receive professional courtesy around cancellation plans to properly wrap up.

“A heads up would have been nice,” he stated.

The CW declined requests for comment on the cancellation decision and communication. TV cancellations often involve competing priorities for networks and productions.

While Teng felt the Nancy Drew team deserved better notification, the situation highlights communication challenges amidst industry uncertainty and change.
