Q&A: Get to know MaeMae Renfrow from Hunter Street
Grab you detective's notebook, girls—we're going back to Hunter Street!
Tonight, the mysterious and adventurous Nickelodeon show returns for its second season (tune in at 7 p.m. EST) and we could not be more stoked. In the first season, the show followed five foster kids on a quest to find their missing parents after they mysteriously disappeared.
Things don't slow down for the Hunter fam this time around either. They're faced with another mystery when their dad, Erik, is accused of a crime and it’s up to the kids to crack the case and clear his name. Doing what they do best, the sibs set out on a quest for clues, leading them on an epic and suspenseful adventure—and some exciting new additions to the family!
One of the stars of the show is MaeMae Renfrow, who plays Tess, the independent and fiercely protective Hunter sibling. With her keen observational skills and dry sense of humor, she helps make light of any situation.
Peep a teaser trailer for season two below!
For more on season two, get the deets from MaeMae herself below!
Girls' Life: How has Tess changed since season one?
MaeMae Renfrow: I would say Tess has evolved to be more open, a lot more understanding and motherly like.
GL: Whats' your favorite thing about playing her?
MR: My favorite thing about playing Tess Hunter would be how witty, brave, smart and kind she is. I also get to work with the most amazing cast, aka my family!
GL: Best moment from the first season of Hunter Street?
MR: When we filmed in the tunnels, because they were actual tunnels underground in Amsterdam—which was kind of creepy but it looked amazing cool!
GL: I hear there are some exciting new additions to the fam this season! Any hints or details you can drop about them?
MR: I can’t give too much away, but we have amazing new characters this season who fans will love! First, there is Jake who is artsy, smart, fun and always up for adventures, he fits right in with us. Then there is Evie, who is super sweet and adorable, but a girl of few words.
GL: The show is super mysterious. Are you into mystery books or films outside of the show? If so, which ones?
MR: Well my favorite mystery books would be A-to-Z Mysteries—Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys and so many more, but those would have to be my top. For films/shows, Scooby Doo is my fave without a doubt.
GL: If you could have one famous fictional detective drop into the show to help you crack a case, who would it be?
MR: The Mystery Gang, of course!
You can catch MaeMae in the season premiere of Hunter Street *tonight* on Nickelodeon at 7 p.m. EST.
