The CW has released a new Naomi trailer teasing the upcoming superhero drama series based on the DC Comics character starring Kaci Walfall (Army Wives, Power, Broadway’s The Lion King). The show will debut on Tuesday, January 11, 2022.
“When a supernatural event shakes her hometown of Port Oswego to the core, Naomi sets out to uncover its origins, with a little help from her fiercely loyal best friend Annabelle (Mary-Charles Jones, Kevin Can Wait),” reads the official synopsis. “She also has the support of her adoptive, doting parents, veteran military officer Greg (Barry Watson, 7th Heaven, The Loudest Voice) and linguistics teacher Jennifer (Mouzam Makkar, The Fix). After an encounter with Zumbado (Cranston Johnson, Filthy Rich), the mysterious owner of a used car lot, leaves her shaken, Naomi turns to tattoo parlor owner Dee (Alexander Wraith, Orange Is the New Black), who becomes her reluctant mentor. While unfolding the mystery about herself, Naomi also effortlessly navigates her high school friendships with kids on the military base as well as local townies, including ex-boyfriend and high school jock Nathan (Daniel Puig); Annabelle’s longtime, loyal boyfriend Jacob (Aidan Gemme); proud “townie” Anthony (Will Meyers, Bad Education); and fellow comic book enthusiast Lourdes (Camila Moreno), who works in a vintage collectible shop. As Naomi journeys to the heights of the Multiverse in search of answers, what she discovers will challenge everything we believe about our heroes.”
