In the reboot of Nancy Drew, Actor Scott Wolf has replaced Freddie Prinze. This decision of bringing Wolf back into the casting to the former WB Network, was after he starred in the third and fourth seasons of Everwood.
According to sources, the producers wanted to go on a different direction but the split was amicable. In the recent past, re-castings have increasingly become common, as the networks review audience’s testing and refine the casts based on those results. Actor Scott Wolf will now take over the role of the father of teen sleuth – Carson Drew, which was played by Kennedy McMann.
The character is portrayed as an attorney who has become estranged from his daughter after his wife’s death. Nancy Drew is set in summer, when she’s 18 years old, after her high school graduation.
