‘Nancy Drew’ Universe Expands With ‘Tom Swift’ Spin-Off


Just one day after announcing the date that Nancy Drew will return in 2021, The CW has announced that they are developing Tom Swift, a spin-off companion series to the hit show! According to Deadline, the new show will be produced by Josh Schwartz, Stephanie Savage, Melinda Hsu Taylor, and Noga Landau of Nancy Drew, alongside Cameron Johnson (Empire). It will follow

the serialized adventures of its 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.

Tom Swift will appear in an episode of Nancy Drew‘s second season, which will see him teaming up with the Drew Crew in order to introduce him before producing a separate pilot for the spin-off. The character comes from the Tom Swift book series, which, like the original Nancy Drew, has been through many rewrites and overhauls since it was first published in 1910. The latest version was published in 2019 and is geared towards young readers. No casting or other information has been revealed yet, but stay tuned for more Nancy Drew news as we get it!
