Developed and produced by the multi award-nominated Ava DuVernay (Selma, When They See Us), and co-produced by Arrow alumni Jill Blankenship, Naomi unites an excellent cast to tell the story of a young Black teen getting to grips with her superhuman abilities. Below we explain how to watch Naomi online – from anywhere in the world.
Created by Brian Michael Bendis and David F. Walker, Naomi was published by DC comics just under three years ago.
At first, life appears fairly ordinary for Naomi, a comic book aficionado and Superman fangirl. But that all changes when an extraordinary event occurs in her hometown of Port Oswego. Investigating its cause, she’s led on a path of self-discovery that results in a profound discovery about her upbringing.
Kaci Walfall (Modern Love, Power) stars in the lead role, opposite Mary-Charles Jones (Kevin Can Wait) and Barry Watson (Gossip Girl) as her BFF and father respectively, while Cranston Johnson and Alexander Wraith play two enigmatic individuals keeping suspiciously close watch over our young hero.
This new addition to the Arrowverse is bound to be a blast. So, keep reading below for how to watch Naomi online from anywhere now.

Crash landing on The CW is Naomi, the brand-new superhero drama from acclaimed filmmaker Ava DuVernay. There are 13 episodes in total, with the first getting its premiere on Tuesday, January 11 at 9pm ET/PT (8pm CT), and the remainder being aired at the same time each week.
If you don’t have a cable package – or don’t mind waiting a little longer – then recently broadcast episodes will be added to The CW website (opens in new tab) around 24-hours after they first air. The platform is FREE to view, though you will need a cable log-in to access it. If you're patient, however, you can wait a week for a new episode to drop and the previous will be 100% free to stream without logging in.
However, those looking for a complete OTT replacement to cable that includes The CW channel should consider FuboTV (opens in new tab). Pricing starts at $64.99 after taking advantage a FREE fuboTV trial (opens in new tab), and the service provides over a hundred live channels encompassing entertainment, news, lifestyle, movies, and heaps of sport content.
As mentioned above, if you find yourself out of the country when episodes of Naomi are first broadcast, you can use clever software like ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) to watch the DC Comics series live or on-demand.
Can I watch Naomi online in the UK?
Sadly, there’s no Naomi lined up to thrill DC fans in the UK, either on linear TV or through streaming services.
In the past Netflix has carried The CW shows like Riverdale, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, and Dynasty, but there’s no news currently that Naomi will join them on Netflix in the UK. We’ll update this page if anything changes though.
That means Americans abroad will struggle to watch this latest addition to the Arrowverse, particularly through the online The CW app that lets you watch new programming for free.
However, one solution is to try a 100% risk-free VPN (opens in new tab) to connect to your usual on-demand platform. That means you'd be able to watch Naomi online no matter where you were streaming from.
