We’re doing something original with great influence from the games and the books...there’s a lot of things being acknowledged and understood about the greatness of all of those things, but yes, it’s an original story and I’m so psyched to do it.

Aadila Dosani has joined the cast of Nancy Drew’s second season as Amanda Bobbsey of the Bobbsey Twins.

Often resorting to petty crimes with her twin brother, Amanda puts herself and her twin above everyone and everything else.” Praneet Akilla (October Faction) has additionally been tapped to play Amanda’s twin brother, Gil Bobbsey.
