The CW Is Developing a 'Nancy Drew' Spinoff - 'Tom Swift'

Nancy Drew is getting a spinoff!

The CW series is expanding and will dive into the world of Tom Swift, THR reports.

Based on the book series, Tom Swift will follow “the Black, gay, billionaire inventor who is thrust into a world of sci-fi conspiracy after the 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.”

The power duo behind Gossip Girl and Looking For Alaska, Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, who also executive produce Nancy Drew, will oversee the spinoff, with Melinda Hsu Taylor and Noga Landau, showrunner and co-creator of Nancy Drew, co-creating the spinoff with Cameron Johnson.

The possible Tom Swift spinoff will have a backdoor pilot in the upcoming second season of Nancy Drew, which is currently filming in Vancouver.
