Get ready to see some of your fave childhood characters on the small screen next fall. The CW recently announced three new pilots—Batwoman, Katy Keene and Nancy Drew!

Before you start gushing to the littles, these 2019-2020 season picks (including the nostalgia-heavy Nancy Drew) have plenty of “adultish” subject matter––or at least enough to make these pilot series prime viewing for teens and grown-ups only. So what can you expect from the new pilots?

Batwoman features Ruby Rose in the title role, playing an entirely out lesbian who fights crime and stops social injustices. Katy Keene stars Lucy Hale as an aspiring fashion designer who meets Ashleigh Murray’s musical Josie McCoy in this Riverdale spinoff.

The CW’s Nancy Drew is a throwback to your fave childhood series but, of course, with a modern twist. The sleuth-y female lead (played by Kennedy McMann) is a recent high school grad who’s forced to stick around her hometown after a family tragedy. Even though Nancy doesn’t get to go off to college, she does get to investigate a murder—uncovering secrets galore!

As of now, there’s no release date for the new series’ pilots.
