Nancy Drew Season 4 [31 May]
Nancy Drew Season 4 will be its final season. In the previous season, the Drew Crew had been put through a wringer with supernatural forces. Their latest is no different.

Astro has shown previous Nancy Drew seasons on the Foxlife channels, so it should remain the same. Fingers crossed.
