This article is a preview for Tom Swift season 1, episode 5, and contains details of the release date and where to watch online.
After a year and a half, Tom Swift has finally debuted on the CW. Initially introduced as a spin-off from the network’s Nancy Drew, the series, based on the Stratemeyer Syndicate book series, introduces the titular brilliant, unimaginably wealthy inventor. Co-created by Nancy Drew showrunners Noga Landau and Melinda Hsu Taylor and Empire writer Cameron Johnson, the new series deliberately subverts the classic take on the character by reimagining him as a gay, Black billionaire.
Below is everything we know about the latest episode of Tom Swift, including release date and time, where to watch online, cast information, and the trailer.
