The Nancyverse is expanding on The CW! In Nancy Drew season 2, fans of the series were introduced to Tom Swift. The handsome, billionaire tech genius is the star of his own beloved book series and now he’ll continue his story in a live-action show bearing his name.

Things are never easy for the young, wealthy, and famous, but Tom’s life is set to take a particularly dark turn. That’s bound to happen when one’s father goes missing and their family life is turned upside down. Thankfully, Tom has a supportive crew that makes up his circle, however, he’ll be challenged more than he ever has been before when it comes to figuring out what happened to his father.

Between running a business, navigating the tricky waters of high society, and dealing with an Illuminati-esque organization, Tom has a lot on his plate and that’s not even counting shady Congressman, fiery chemistry between more than one potential suitor, and a disrupted relationship with his mother.

Tom Swift synopsis

The official synopsis via The CW:

"As an exceptionally brilliant inventor with unlimited resources and unimaginable wealth, the devilishly charming Tom Swift (Tian Richards) is a man who many men would kill to be, or be with – a man with the world in the palm of his hand. But that world gets shaken to its core after the shocking disappearance of his father, thrusting Tom into a breathtaking adventure full of mysterious conspiracies and unexplained phenomena.On his whirlwind quest to unravel the truth, Tom finds himself fighting to stay one step ahead of an Illuminati-scale cabal hellbent on stopping him. Tackling this treacherous pursuit armed with his vast intellect, his roguish wit, and an endless supply of designer sneakers, he will also rely on his closest companions: his best friend Zenzi (Ashleigh Murray), whose unabashed and unvarnished candor keeps Tom grounded while she forges a path for herself as a business visionary; his bodyguard Isaac (Marquise Vilsón), whose fierce commitment to his chosen family is complicated by his own simmering feelings for Tom; and his AI, Barclay (voiced by LeVar Burton), whose insights and tough love have been a constant throughout Tom’s life.At home, Tom’s relationship with his mother Lorraine (April Parker Jones) becomes conflicted as she urges him to take his father’s place in elite Black society. But unbeknownst to Tom, his mother’s request is driven by deep secrets of her own. What’s more, the mysterious and dangerous Rowan (Albert Mwangi) intersects Tom’s path with hidden motivations and undeniable mutual chemistry. While Tom navigates these emotionally charged dynamics, his missions will require his genius and his flair for innovation guided by romance, friendship and the mysteries of the universe yet unsolved."
