Tom Swift is officially getting his own series!
The character, who made his first appearance in Nancy Drew‘s second season, will be getting his own spinoff show on The CW, according to Variety.
Tom, played by actor Tian Richards, first appeared in the episode titled “The Celestial Visitor”.
The spinoff show will focus on the serialized adventures of the titular Black, gay, billionaire inventor, who is thrust into a world of sci-fi conspiracy and unexplained phenomena after the shocking disappearance of his father.
Tom takes to the road on a quest to unravel the truth, leaving behind the comforts of his usual moneyed lifestyle, all while fighting to stay one step ahead of an Illuminati-scale group hell-bent on stopping him.
Tom’s missions will require his genius and flair for innovation guided by love, romance, friendship and the mysteries of the universe yet-unsolved.
The show has been in development since October 2020, and Simon and Schuster published a “Tom Swift” series in 2019.
Another CW show is also getting a spinoff. See which one!
