Nancy Drew showrunners Noga Landau and Melinda Hsu Taylor have teased plenty of twists and turns for season 2, as well as a potential Tom Swift spin-off series.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Landau revealed that the second run of the supernatural murder mystery series won't go the way fans are expecting when it returns to the CW next week.

Asked how much of season 2 will focus on the mystery of the Aglaeca curse, the showrunner said: "Without giving too many spoilers away, the Aglaeca story launches the season.

"But it actually has many twists and turns that keep it as a thread that keeps going throughout the season in ways that you don't expect while a bunch of new mysteries move in and take over.

"So the season is not just about the Aglaeca, it's about parts of the Aglaeca but also a whole bunch of new mysteries that come sweeping into Nancy's life."

Taylor added: "And we're also about to do some more standalone [episodes] this time around because we wanted to design it so that it was a lower barrier to entry. This season, we have more of a kind of chapter feeling."

Landau went on to discuss the proposed expansion of the "Drew-niverse", which will start this season with backdoor pilot episode for a potential Tom Swift spin-off series.

"It's going to be episode 15 of this season, and we can't wait," she said. "It's so exciting; we're going to be shooting it soon. We're just in prep for it now.

"It's really about weaving in another genre into the Drew-niverse, the genre of sci-fi that Tom Swift is going to bring, but done in a way where it fits perfectly into Nancy Drew's world of supernatural entities and mysteries."

Nancy Drew airs on The CW in the US.
