'Tom Swift' Canceled by The CW, But the Series Might Still Have a Future

The CW’s new series Tom Swift has been canceled by the network after just one season, but that doesn’t mean the show is done for good.

The Nancy Drew spinoff series features the first gay Black lead on network television with star Tian Richards.

The series is based on the book series from Stratemeyer Syndicate, and focuses on an exceptionally brilliant inventor with unlimited resources and unimaginable wealth, the devilishly charming Tom Swift, who is a man who many men would kill to be, or be with – a man with the world in the palm of his hand.
