Besides the books, there have been quite a few other adaptations. In the late 1930s, there was a series of four film adaptations, which were widely criticized at the time for being InNameOnly (and have mostly been forgotten since). In 2002 there was a television movie, and in 2007 there was a more tongue-in-cheek [[Film/NancyDrew film adaptation]], poking fun at the 1950s incarnation of Nancy. There were two prior television series starring Nancy; the first in the late 70s, the second a 1999 series canceled after half a season. A third series, centered around an adult Nancy as a police detective, was announced in late 2015. [[VideoGame/NancyDrew A series of Nancy Drew]] point-and-click AdventureGames has been in production since 1998. More recently, a comic book series was published by Papercutz, starting in 2005. There has also been occasional lines of merchandise throughout the decades.

One of the most noteworthy traits of the original books is that they were [[OrwellianRetcon periodically re-written every few decades]] to reflect changing cultural values. This has produced mixed views; on one hand, this did get rid of a lot of racist stereotypes and other ValuesDissonance issues that were in the original versions. On the other hand, the changes were also criticized for making Nancy herself less assertive, and simplifying the plot of many of the books. That being said, a large number of powerful and influential women, including politician Hillary Rodham Clinton, journalist Barbara Walters, and no less than three female current and former Supreme Court Justices have mentioned not only being fans, but inspired by Nancy to enter what were considered traditionally masculine fields such as politics, journalism, and law. As a result, feminists tend to have a love/hate relationship with the franchise.

It started as a series of young adult mystery novels, the first of which was published in 1930 by the StratemeyerSyndicate. The premise is simple enough: Nancy Drew is a young teenage girl, who alongside her friends Bess and George (and sometimes her boyfriend Ned Nickerson), solves mysteries. The original series ran from 1930 all the way to 2003, consisting of 175 books in total. A sequel series, ''Girl Detective'', was published from 2004 to 2012, before being rebooted as the ''Nancy Drew Diaries'' in 2013. Along the way, a large number of spinoff book series of varying canon status were published. Between all the different series and spinoffs, the number of books totals at over ''four hundred'', and still counting.
