The CW's “Nancy Drew” series pulled a classic character into the present era for a clever supernatural mystery drama that was entertaining and thought-provoking. The sitcom will return for a third season, giving fans, even more, cause to be excited about it.
However, in addition to continuing the story of Ms. Drew, the most recent installment of the “Nancy Drew” series has successfully enlarged the series' worldview. When Nancy (Kennedy McMann) was allowed to work with another legacy character, millionaire inventor Tom Swift, in the Season 2 episode “The Celestial Visitor,” she jumped at the chance (Tian Richards).
The Tom Swift Plot
Tom Swift embarks on an adventure as a wealthy investor who, following the disappearance of his father, finds himself immersed in a world of scientific conspiracies and strange phenomena.
Fast forward to Swift embarking on a journey to uncover the truth, leaving behind his affluent living style in order to do it. Swift finds himself battling to keep one step ahead of an illuminati-scale organisation that is hellbent on stopping him while on his journey.
Tom's relationship with his mother Lorraine gets strained as she pushes him to take his father's place in elite Black society, according to the CW tease. “However, Tom is unaware that his mother's request is motivated by deep-seated secrets of her own.
“On top of that, Tom's path is crossed by the intriguing and menacing Rowan, who has hidden motives and an overwhelming attraction to Tom. During his time navigating these emotionally charged dynamics, Tom's tasks will necessitate his ingenuity and his flair for creation, which will be guided by romance, friendship, and the mysteries of the cosmos that remain unexplained.”
What is the Make-up of the Tom Swift Cast?
Despite the fact that the majority of the cast for “Tom Swift” has yet to be released, we do know that Tian Richards will reprise his role as the title character. The opportunity to play a Black homosexual billionaire who also happens to be a science genius, as Richards explained to TV Line, was appealing since it challenged the existing quo on television while also putting a fresh take on a character with a lengthy history.
According to Richards, “Tom is allowed to exist in all of his beauty and pride.” It's a privilege for him to grow up in an established family with unlimited opportunities in education, technology, and invention. ” He is able to come to terms with himself, which is a great thing to witness.”
According to Deadline, LeVar Burton provided the voice of Tom's artificial intelligence sidekick Barclay in the “Nancy Drew” episode, and it is likely that the actor will reprise his role for the series. Also possible is that Nancy (Kennedy McMann) will return the favour and emerge in Tom's universe.
After all, we already know that the Arrowverse is a fan of crossovers between its series, so why shouldn't something similar happen with Nancy and Tom?
Melinda Hsu Taylor, Noga Landau, and Cameron Johnson — who are listed as the founders of this version of Swift — will also serve as executive producers on the project, according to Deadline. They will be joined by “Nancy Drew” authors Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage.
When Will Tom Swift be Released?
The fact that a “Tom Swift” television series is in development does not necessarily imply that the show will premiere at a given time.
According to Deadline, the “Tom Swift” television series has been renewed for the seasons 2021-2022 on the CBS television network. In light of the fact that we were only introduced to the character in May 2021, and that an announcement has finally been made regarding intentions for the CW to pick up the show, it is unlikely that we will see the series on the air this year. Instead, it appears more likely that “Tom Swift” will make its premiere somewhere in the spring or summer of 2022.
Still, that isn't an interminable wait, and as long as production continues, we will most likely see a scheduled release date sooner rather than later. The episode was most likely used by the CW to assess audience reaction to the character's debut.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, filming on the spinoff series is set to begin in October of 2020. However, after the character made an appearance on “Nancy Drew,” the CW considered developing a spinoff and even ordered a pilot screenplay.
Is There a Trailer?
Hopefully, the trailer comes out shortly. Although there's nothing to watch yet on the Tom Swift trailer front, when it does appear we will undoubtedly upload it right away as we can’t wait to see the ensemble cast.
