We finally have the first look at The CW’s newest shows Naomi and All American: Homecoming!
The two series were just announced to be picked up to series, and they will both premiere midseason during the 2021/2022
Naomi is based on the DC Comic of the same name, and will be the second series based on a Black superhero. It stars Kaci Walfall as Naomi, Camila Moreno as Lourdes, Daniel Puig as Nathan and Will Myers as Anthony, who are all featured in the first look photo. Find out who else will star!
Here’s the official synopsis: Naomi follows the journey of a cool, confident, comic book–loving teenager (Walfall) as she pursues her hidden destiny. 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. She also has the support of her adoptive, doting parents, veteran military officer Greg and linguistics teacher Jennifer.
After an encounter with Zumbado (Cranston Johnson), the mysterious owner of a used car lot, leaves her shaken, Naomi turns to tattoo parlor owner Dee (Alexander Wraith), 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 well as local townies, including ex-boyfriend and high school jock Nathan; Annabelle’s longtime, loyal boyfriend Jacob; proud “townie” Anthony (Meyers); and fellow comic book enthusiast Lourdes (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.
All American: Homecoming stars Camille Hyde as Thea, Geffri Maya as Simone, Sylvester Powell as JR, Peyton Alex Smith as Damon, Netta Walker as Keisha and Kelly Jenrette as Amara. They are all featured in these first look photos.
Here’s an official synopsis: All American: Homecoming is a young adult sports drama set against the backdrop of the HBCU (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) experience at Bringston University, where Black excellence is a way of life. The series follows Simone (Maya), a young tennis hopeful from Beverly Hills who is trying to fight her way back to great after some time away from the court, and Damon (Smith), an elite baseball player from Chicago who is carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders.
After Simone’s aunt Amara Patterson (Jenrette), a journalism teacher and activist, exposes a scandal that threatens to derail the school’s beloved baseball program, new coach Marcus Turner (Cory Hardrict) is determined to bring a championship back to Bringston the honest way — with Damon’s help. Damon will adjust to his new normal with fellow baseball player and childhood friend JR (Sylvester Powell) by his side.
Meanwhile, as Simone struggles to find her footing, she will get a little guidance from Thea (Hyde), the super-competitive queen bee of the Bringston tennis team, and Keisha (Walker), the school’s unofficial mayor, who will help Simone learn how to live her best life. As they contend with the high stakes of college sports, Simone and Damon will also navigate the highs, lows, and sexiness of unsupervised early adulthood at a prestigious HBCU.
