Destiny awaits! On Saturday, DC FanDome revealed the first-look clip for The CW’s Naomi, starring Kaci Walfall as the titular character. The series hails from Ava DuVernay and Jill Blankenship

Here’s a synopsis for the show, per the Viacom CBS press site: 

DC drama Naomi follows the journey of a cool, confident, comic book–loving teenager 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, the mysterious owner of a used car lot, leaves her shaken, Naomi turns to tattoo parlor owner Dee, who becomes her reluctant mentor.

The teaser opens with Naomi (Walfall) receiving a text from Annabelle about a “wild stunt happening in the square” involving Superman. After exclaiming she needs “this” for her site, Naomi skateboards out of the classroom and to the town square. 

Suddenly, while witnessing exciting events unfold, Naomi passes out. We see an unidentifiable something speed across the sky, presumably Superman. 

This clip isn’t the most revealing, but it gives us a taste of what to expect when the series premieres. While I’m not wowed by it, I’m still intrigued by the premise, and I adore DuVernay, so I’m willing to try it on for size!
